The description of the property reads so well that we were expecting it to be a little of an anti-climax when we arrived. This could not be farther from the truth. The house has been beautifully restored, the added pool and tennis court are immaculate, and it is so well equipped by Antoine & Liliane that everything you could possibly want to enjoy your stay is provided. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a luxury, yet traditional, French holiday.
We have just returned form a wonderful 2 week holiday at Gîte du Grand Bailly. We really enjoyed our stay and it was perfect for our 4 year old daughter who loved playing with the owners' two boys and brushing their horse. She was so sad to leave! The gite is very homely, traditional and nostalgic - it reminded me of family holidays as a child. All the rooms are large, including the kitchen and so there is plenty of room. There is space to sit outside in the sun and it's perfectly safe for children to play as they can't get out of the gates. Northern Burgundy is a very interesting area of France and is not in general known by the British although it is only about 4 or 5 hours drive from Calais. There was tons to do visiting many fascinating towns and villages in the Yonne, and we could easily have spent longer than 2 weeks.... we therefore hope to return very soon!
