Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Gigny - Havre Paisible

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms - sleeps 6 people

The spacious gite - “Havre Paisible” (French for peaceful haven) - is a traditional farmhouse nestling serenely in an unspoilt village in the heart of rural Burgundy which has been completely modernized and exceptionally well appointed to ensure a relaxing holiday. A comfortable 5 hour-drive from Calais, Havre Paisible affords the opportunity to visit many parts of this varied region.

Relax by your private swimming pool and sip local Burgundy or Chablis wines on your 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!

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Jackie Rollo

Bonjour, I am Jackie Rollo, an American and have been blessed to call Gigny my home for over 10 years. As a permanent resident, I am aware of all the comings and goings and am happy to share my local knowledge of the best affordable restaurants, local walks, history of the surrounding area, introduce you to our local cremant maker.

Even though I sometimes live on the property, I am always conscious that this is your holiday and I am happy to give you your privacy or share the many wonderful stories that go along with living in a foreign country.

If you want to 'experience' France rather than just visit, please contact me if you would like to add cooking demonstrations, have meals prepared for you, need a babysitter, french lessons or recommend local tours, or you just want to ask questions about the region while planning your trip. I delight in helping my guests get the most out of their visit to this little piece of heaven, so do not hesitate to ask!

I hope to be able to welcome you to Havre Paisible! The nicest comment I hear most often is we came as strangers and are leaving as friends.

Jackie Rollo purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Jackie Rollo chose Gigny

Gigny really has it all - located 5 minutes by car to the local village of Laigne which consists of a tabac, a pharmacie, a movie theatre, a wonderful grocery store, an antique store, a florist, 2 boulangeries and an electric store with all kinds of gadgets. Within 20 minutes east or west, you will find larger towns with all more amenities. When feeling more adventurous, there are plenty of beautiful villages with fresh air markets a plenty, museums and wonderful restaurants. Enjoy the tranquility where you can restore your soul, but find everything you need just a stone throws away. It is the very best of both worlds.

What makes this farmhouse unique

I live permanently on the property which allows you to get to know the local area without stress and experimentation. Quite a few of my guests started coming for 1 week and then started booking for 2 weeks - they say the first week is for getting settled and the 2nd is just for 'absorbing the beauty and tranquility of Havre Paisible'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for an enjoyable week. We have sampled the good food and hospitality of many towns in the area. Your friendly smile and good nature are hard to beat.

A wonderful house and a wonderful owner

  • 5 out of 5
We had the most wonderful 4 days family vacation in "Havre Paisible". We chose this cosy house as our base for exploring the Burgundy area and it was a perfect choice for us because of the location - 2.5 hours from Paris, because of the layout of the house which was very comfortable for 6 adults + a baby, and, last but not least, because of Jackie - the owner of the house. The house is well maintained, equipped and comfortable for a family or for a group of friends and the option that Jackie is offering for breakfast and dinner is an added bonus that enhanced our vacation a great deal. Jackie is a very nice and welcoming person and a great cook!, who made us feel that we don't want to leave
We have no hesitation in recommending this vacation house to any future guests!
THANK YOU JACKIE and we hope we will have the opportunity to visit you again in the near future.
Drorit and the rest of the C. family

Charming property with wonderful hostess

  • 5 out of 5
We spend our first family holiday with our new baby here. It was wonderfully calm and listening to the church bells in bed was so relaxing. The house has a very cosy lounge room. Very clean and comfortable. Excellent value for money. Jackie is a wonderful lady and goes out of her way to help.

Relaxing family holiday

  • 5 out of 5
Jacquie has thought of everything, from the beautiful welcoming food and wine to an amazingly equipped and beautifully comfortable rental property. We have 3 children and they enjoyed the spacious gite and garden. The village is quiet and peaceful and the kids rode their bikes and scooters around. The market at chablis was a lovely way to spend Sunday morning and I must recommend visiting the prehistoric caves about 1 hour away and the Roman exhibition and town as well.

A peaceful haven

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned home from a weeks stay at this cottage. It meets all aspects of the owners (jackies) description and so much more!
The cottage is situated in a small farming village - so quiet, and perfect for walks (Jackie has included some in her very comprehensive welcome pack) yet well positioned for days out to delightful places such as Troyes, Chablis and Flavigny-sur-ozerain.
The cottage itself is very well appointed. Lovely bedrooms, comfortable beds, nice White towels in the 3 bathrooms - lots of hot water for showers. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook meals everyday (we did this and ate outside each evening). There are bonus additional features such as free wifi, sky tv, DVDs and games to play! Never a dull moment!
The garden is smashing - garden chairs wherever the sun shines, lovely pool which is a good temperature, and a gas BBQ too!
One of the best features of staying at this cottage is the host Jackie - she is the perfect host, very helpful, gives lots of information about the local area, made us feel very welcome without being intrusive at all.
We were thrilled with our 'welcome pack' of a homemade quiche, bread, local cheese and bread with salad from the garden!

I would certainly recommend a stay in this comfortable cottage, and will be doing so to friends and family!

If you do stay you will love hearing the church bells ringing each hour, collecting your breakfast from the 'bread van' in the mornings (pain au raisin was great!), trying the many varieties of Chablis and being able to relax in such a lovely setting.

Holiday Sept 2009

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a wonderful week with friends relaxing round the pool with Jackie and Buddy. We were made to feel very very welcome and ere greeted with a bottle of the excellent local wine, and home made quiche!!
The Gite was everything we expected and contributed to us having a wonderful week enjoying a lovely area of Burgundy with many excellent meals enjoyed in some great welcoming restaurants.
We can thoroughly recomend the Gite and area and above all a great welcome from Jackie and Buddy.

Our village - Gigny - is located between Chatillon-sur-Seine and Chablis in Northern Burgundy. Havre Paisible, the original farmhouse from the 1600s was remodeled with all modern conveniences including 3 bedrooms, 3 modern bathrooms, a washing machine and fully equipped French kitchen. The farmhouse is enclosed in a beautiful courtyard with a heated 5 x 9 meter swimming pool (open May/June – September). The garden is compact but designed specifically for relaxation and tranquility.

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.

Other Activities: wine tasting, boating on the Burgundy canal. Dinners can be prepared and served with advance reservation.

Golf: Beautiful 9 hole course located approximately 15 minutes from the house in Tanlay. Don't forget to visit the beautiful Chateau of Tanlay and Ancy-le-Franc.
