Just 700 km from Utrecht, in the Burgundy region, is where you will find La VilléGiature. It’s a farmstead that boasts a superb gîte (holiday cottage) for 6 people, 2 guest rooms and there are also 3 camping pitches for tents or caravans.
Room to relax, enjoy peace and quiet and a stunning view out over fields of rapeseed, wheat or sunflowers. It’s a wonderful place to spend your holiday, you can already see it before you: breakfasting in the morning sun on fresh rolls from the local baker, in the afternoon sitting on one of the terraces with a nice book and enjoying a nice glass of something, and in the evening joining us at the table d’hôtes (host’s table) for a delicious dinner. Our little place is just 10 minutes from the A77 autoroute, so it’s also the perfect place to take a break if you are journeying further south.
We are Johan and Barbara Grims from Baarn, the Netherlands and we took over La VilléGiature in February 2022. Alongside the existing gîte (holiday cottage), we added a mini-camping site and chambres d’hôtes (guest rooms). We got out of the hectic world of careers and business in order to enjoy a freer existence in peace and quiet and lots of space all round us. We really love to welcome guests to our place, to pamper them and to ensure that they have things the way they want them. La VilléGiature offers all kinds of options to do just that. We have two grown children in the Netherlands, son Koen and daughter Iris. We are enjoying our wonderful life in France.
In the nearby village of Narcy, our baker bakes delicious bread. As a guest of our gîte or mini-camping site you can ask us to deliver your bakery order to you, so you don’t have to get out of bed early just to have fresh bread.
Several evenings a week, we prepare and cook a delicious three-course dinner for our guests, naturally accompanied by appetizing local wines such as Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. And on one of the evenings, we even fire up our pizza oven for you.
We have two new e-bikes (electric bikes) to rent, so that you can get to know the countryside by bike. All the local hills mean it’s a really nice option to have.
We have created a couple of terraces in our big garden so that you are free to enjoy your book or just to take a moment to sit and quietly enjoy the view. For kids we have a swing, a trampoline and a table tennis table.
There is a walled swimming pool (7 x 5.5 metres). It’s really nice to cool off in it on a hot day and then to relax on one of the sunbeds.
There are lots of little roads that are great fun to take a trip along on your bike or in your car. Our picnic basket is waiting for you, and we will be happy to fill it so that you can enjoy a tasty lunch whilst enjoying the view out over the lovely nearby vineyards.
