In the year 2000, Coen and Catherine bought Chateau de Villette in Poil, Burgundy and celebrated their wedding before starting a 2 years renovation. After the renovation, they decided to leave their busy life and settled down permanently at the domain. Catherine then opened the chateau for guests and started an prestigious B&B, which offers the service of a small luxury boutique hotel with1 family room and 4 double bedrooms.
On the estate of 500 acres you will also find two self-catering cottages, a swimming pool and a tennis court.
The chateau is located in the Regional Parc of the Morvan, close to Autun known as an old Roman town build for the Emperor August. Between Autun and Chateau de villette, there is a very interesting archeological site of Bibracte.
For the wine lovers, the chateau is close to the famous Burgundian wine villages such as Meursault, Pommard, Mercurey, Volnay, Puligny Montrachet, ...
Beaune, situated at about 75 km , is a great day trip to explore the Burgundian gastronomy and the wine;
After exploring the secrets of Burgundy during the day, nothing better then coming home at Villette to relaxing at the pool or in the gardens, once designed by André le Notre and enjoy the beauty of the Morvan hills with a nice glass of wine.
A few nights a week, Catherine prepares a nice table d'hôtes and spoils her guests with a gastronomic 4 course dinner.
