Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
"Havre Paisible” - your home-away-from home nestling serenely in an un-spoilt village in the heart of rural Burgundy - was lovingly created specifically with the pleasure and comfort of our guests in mind.
The spacious gite - “Havre Paisible” (French for peaceful haven) - is a traditional farmhouse which has been completely modernized and exceptionally well appointed to ensure a relaxing holiday, albeit without compromising the craft and talent of the local artisans who created the 17th-century original. A comfortable drive (around 5 hours) from Calais, Havre Paisible gives you the opportunity to visit many parts of this varied region.
Come and be charmed by all the simple pleasures of the timeless French countryside and our beautiful village. Many of my guests have commented that they felt transported to the France of bygone years, yet blessed with all modern amenities.
Relax by your private swimming pool and sip local Burgundy or Chablis wines on the terrace. Take a stroll in the fields which surround the village. Dine outside on your terrace and experience the starlit skies, savor total tranquility and listen to the sound of silence. Drive to a local cave for a degustation followed by lunch at one of the local restaurants. Catch up with your “other” world via the free internet access. Or simply soak up the sun, read a book and do nothing for a change!
Our village - Gigny - is located between Chatillon-sur-Seine and Chablis in Northern Burgundy. Havre Paisible is the original farmhouse dating from the 1600s but remodeled with all modern conveniences including three bedrooms, three modern bathrooms, a washing machine and fully equipped country kitchen. The farmhouse is enclosed in a beautiful courtyard with a heated 5 x 9 meter swimming pool (open Mid May –– September). The garden is compact but designed specifically for relaxation and tranquility. Parents, if you have active children this may not be a suitable property for your holiday - but please contact me for specific questions (sometimes the pool is all that is required).
I have called Gigny home for over 9 years and live adjacent to the property. I have designed the gite so that you are assured of the same relaxing and private holiday even if I am present during your stay. I am here to help with any information you may need and to ensure that your stay is as perfect as possible should you require it.

The Burgundy region
The region is varied and what I believe is one of the last regions of "the old France". Gentle, beautiful rolling hills, little traffic and just pure relaxing.
Fishing, cruising or walking the beautiful Burgundy Canal.
Lovely picnics, walking, cycling or fishing at Lac Marcenay.
Visiting lovely renaissance chateaux - Chateau Cordeliere at Tanlay or the Chateau at Ancy-le-Franc
The 9-hole golf course at Tanlay or the 18 hole course at Chaource.
Take the famous TGV train from Montbard (25 minutes) to the south), to visit Euro Disney, Dijon, Paris or Lyon
Visit Chablis - explore the open air market, taste the famous wines, picnic in one of Chablis' parks
For wine lovers, visit Beaune (1.5 hours south) or some of the wonderful Champagne houses just 25 minutes north.
The activities of the area are too plentiful to list, but I guarantee that you will run out of time before you run out of things to see and experience.
