About Julie Ballantyne
After owning a holiday home in this region for a few years we decided to move on to bigger and better things here in Burgundy. Our search began and it wasn't long before we came across The Old Cafe deserted, run-down and completely overgrown with trees and shrubs. The gite was originally the farmhouse on the plot and was only opened up at Christmas for family get togethers, when the village cafe closed the house fell into disrepair and stood empty for many years. We moved here in 2005 and have completely restored the property and grounds into a comfortable and homely place for your enjoyment. We have also converted the old cow barn into a home for ourselves and live on-site all year round we are always on hand to offer guests help and advice and endeavour to remain in the background so that guests are not unduly disturbed during their holiday.
Why Julie Ballantyne chose Gigny
After living here in Burgundy for many years we have learnt through experience what best makes the property and grounds work, our aim has been to make the property as comfortable as possible without ruining its charm. We have made it easy for you to move around the grounds with ease and several seating area have been created for your enjoyment be it soaking up the sun by the pool or reading a good book in one of our more shady areas the choice is yours. The property is well laid out and suitable for families, couples or friends travelling together. The kitchen is well equipped and a you will find a BBQ on your terrace for those Al fresco dinners, a large dining room will allow all the family to sit round the table and talk about their holiday adventures and when you retire to bed there is a choice of two double rooms and a comfortable twin with full size single beds .
What makes this farmhouse unique
Gigny is situated between the wine regions of Champagne and Chablis and both are accessible within a 30 minute drive of the property. There are many wine and champagne caves open for you to visit and to try before you buy. Both regions are set in beautiful countryside and well worth a visit. Just a short drive away are the Chateaux of Ancy le Franc and Tanlay and no day out would be complete without a visit to the Abbey de Fonteney. The historic towns of Dijon and Beaune are bursting with history and their architectural buildings are a must for old and young alike. A train service to Paris runs from Montbard and for families travelling with children Disneyland Paris is a couple of hours away. The smaller but closer Nigloland is well worth a visit with rides to suit all ages and the Lac D'Orient with its lakes and man-made beaches is a fun day out for everyone. If adventure isn't for you then the gite will offer you a quiet relaxing holiday where you can rest and let the rest of the world go by. There is a woodland playground for the little ones, where you can sit and relax with a book away from the hot Burgundy sun.
We can advise you on whatever your needs are and there are a wealth of maps and local information in the gite for your use. This is an ideal property for couples or families. Well behaved pets are welcome
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you very much for the care and hospitality. We enjoyed our stay in your cosy house. We've rarely had such an authentic and beautiful holiday cottage. Of course we liked the fresh eggs, they were delicious. The basket full of goodies was nice also. The little village of Gigny, with its beautiful surroundings is a nice place to spend your holiday. Places like Noyers, Auxerre, Chatillon, Tonnerre and Ancy le France are nice to visit. We had a great walk along the canal of Bourgogne and went for dinner to balot. We have had an excellent week.
