Château de Villette

Living as God in Burgundy

Tranquillity peace and unspoilt nature

The chateau lies in the visually stunning nature park of the Morvan hills. The parkland and setting of the estate is said to be one of the earlier examples of the work of André le Notre, famous for his designs of Versailles and Chantilly.


Luxury at the highest levels

Chateau de Villette is a private and extravagantly stylish private home, formerly the playground of the French aristocracy. Recently re-decorated and renovated it has sumptuous rooms with fine bed-linen, private bathrooms, period furniture, elaborate drapery, luxury beds, light and panoramic views.


Good food and wine

All the dishes we serve include local ingredients and are typical to the region. Local haute cuisine with the finest wines from our private cellars can be enjoyed in the candle-lit formal dining room or on one of several outside terraces.


Unique wildlife habitat

We have created a wildlife habitat unique in Burgundy with the help of a government subsidy. The 500 hectare estate is a mass of delightful scenic contrasts – centuries old parkland, formal terraces, beautiful woods, panoramic views, crystal clear streams, ponds and hedged fields with wildlife flourishing everywhere.
