The 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.

The lock chamber is about 180m long and 16m wide. With its dimensions it offers about 25 boats a mooring place, depending on their length. Inside the lock there is a pontoon with a length of 36m, at the downstream exit of the lock there is another one with 24m length. These pontoons offer a perfect mooring place for all boats during the flood periods.

In the capitainerie you will find a toilet, shower, washing-machine and a drier.
The toilet is free. Near the capitainerie you can use our free WIFI.
