Château de Villette
here for location
Self-catering cottage, sleeps 2 (+2), shared pool
In the grounds of the sumptuous Château de Villette, a picture-book 18thC country cottage has recently been renovated to provide luxury self-catering accommodation for a couple. This is a dream hideaway with a four poster bed, antique style bath and welcoming log fire for chilly nights. Surrounded by some of Burgundy’s finest landscapes, you have all the ingredients for a romantic sojourn.
The château is on the southern edge of the Morvan Natural Park, not far from Autun. Go walking in the unspoiled countryside, relax by the pool, play tennis on the recently added court, and soak up a bit of culture at the Museum of Celtic Civilization, Bibracte or the Buddhist temple at La Boulaye when the mood takes you.
The accommodation consists of a large open plan sitting room around the original stone fireplace, a well-equipped kitchen with dining area. There is a comfy cottagey feel to the décor with light and uplifting colours. The bedroom has views across the estate and a king-size four-poster bed. The bathroom has a deep antique style tub with shower over. The sofa bed in the living room can accommodate two more guests.
There is a small private garden for the exclusive use of the cottage guests and the swimming pool and tennis court are shared with the bed and breakfast guests from the château.
The château is famed for its good food and wine so when you don’t feel like cooking, a gourmet meal awaits.
