Our port

The port of Gigny sur Saône

Since 1994 we have run this port at the ancient lock. The lock became out of use in 1980 after a new one at the small village “Ormes” about 4 km south of our base was built.

Along the lock chamber there are three distribution points with two ports for water and electricity each.

Today our lock is a pleasure port for private boats and of course for our houseboats.
