This is easily the 6th or 7th time we have stayed at Bill and Jenny’s gite in Tivauche. My husband and I both love it and always feel as if we are coming to our “home away from home”. The farm house is so warm and inviting with spacious, well furnished rooms and beautiful views of the Auxois countryside. The terrace is a great place to relax in the spring and fall overlooking the lush green hills . The house is very clean and immaculately maintained and the surrounding countryside is so picturesque. One of our favorite things to do is to search out yet another charming village where I can dream of owning a wonderful stone house -there are many charming villages so
it’s hard to choose a favorite . Semur en Auxois, the medieval walled city 12 km away has about everything one could need and an excellent artisan boulangerie with the most delicious almond croissants ever! Hint: order your almond croissants for pick-up the next morning and they will be freshly baked and still warm when you arrive. Le Marrioner in Buffon overlooking the Burgundy canal and La Mirabelle at the roundabout at St Remy are not to be missed. There are endless sites to see, from Vezelay (Mont St Michelle without water) to Chateauneuf looming ominously on its promontory, the Forge du Buffon to the medieval wine town of Beaune to endless chateaux such as Tanlay or Ancy le Franc, Burgundy has it all! Everyone that we have met and come to know from visiting here for years is friendly and helpful, from the pharmacist in Semur to the florist and especially the boulangerie. We will keep returning to Tivauche to relax, refuel and refresh and hope to stay two weeks in the Spring of 2020. Bill and Jenny and their two lovely daughters whom we have watched grow up are a delightful family, always ready to help with anything but not intrusive. Anyone thinking about a trip to Burgundy would love this gite and the Higgs family. We can’t wait to go back to Tivauche.
The place was super-clean, and everything worked. No repairs were needed. Well supplied kitchen (could have used a tea-towel ...) and a fun design to the building. Great location ... easy walking distance to bakeries, bars, old city. Yet, very quiet at night. Nice animals outside ... a friendly cat and respectful chickens :) ... Comfy bed. Would happily stay again.
