Your hosts at Chateau de Villette. Coen Stork and Catherine Stork, owners and hosts. We are pleased you discovered our private home " Chateau de Villette" . Villette is a world we created for people to enjoy and share our passion for life in Burgundy, nearby the wine region of  Beaune. During our travels we have always enjoyed small or very special luxury hotels and learned to appreciate the words. It is with this spirit in mind we would like you to experience your stay at "Villette". Since our opening, the majority of our guests have come to us by word of mouth. We hope to build our clientele only through people who are actively searching for something out of the ordinary.

About the Host

With his « hands-on » entrepreneurial approach, Coen’s first successful business venture was at age 17.

In 2002, Coen acquired a French estate, which he has developed into the top hospitality and field sports business with a high profile international clientele. The property is now restored to its 17th Century glory and there is, with the aid of a unique government grant, a Pheasant, Partridge and duck shoot re-established at the château.


Typical day at Chateau de Villette

This example day is based on 2 day’s mixed driven game shooting and 3 nights accommodation based on 8 guns. We also organise boar hunting and stalking with different daily programs.

 

  • Day 1. Arrive at the Chateau de Villette late afternoon, relax and refresh yourselves before enjoying a gastronomic meal in the Chateau’s dining room.
  • Day 2 and 3. Mixed driven day. There will be a mixture of partridge, duck and pheasant drives from both maize cover crops, lakes and mature woodland drives. The emphasis here is on a really fun and sporting day and the drives should produce a variety of exciting birds to suit most shots. This is also one of the few shoots in France where the shoot is managed by English keepers, though clearly run with boat loads of Gaelic charm. 
  • Day 4. Departure on the same day or after breakfast the next morning
