The owner says

Chateau de Villette Shoot: Driven Pheasant, Partridge, Duck and Boar Shooting/Hunting in France.
You will enjoy some challenging shooting and hunting on a hilly and varied terrain with breathtaking views and surroundings. Part of the shoot is in the century old park of the château.
We offer driven pheasants, partridges and duck as well as driven wild boar in the beautiful Parc du Morvan with several lakes, ancient woods, with the remainder of rolling countryside with fields, thick hedges and streams.
As we attach great importance to the well-being of our guests outside the shooting and hunting activities and therefore offer comfortable and luxurious accommodation.
For more information about our luxury accommodation and gastronomy see our website or social media channels.
The menu in the château’s dining room and the outside terraces celebrate burgundy’s famous and exceptional cuisine. The great wines in our cellar are found on the wine lists of the best restaurants of france, and throughout the world.


About

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.

Game shooting at Chateau de Villette Experience the best mixed driven bird shooting Burgundy has to offer. Curling pheasants rocketing downwind over wooded valleys, partridges flaring over high hedges or duck escaping over lakes in front of an isolated Château. We are known to be an unique driven bird shooting estate in France, with an English keeper, visited by driven game bird enthusiasts from all over the world. Our visitors include members of different Royal shooting parties. The duck shooting at Château de Villette has a well-earned reputation as one of the top duck shoots in Europe. Duck is presented over several ponds and lakes, over fields and woodland. Click here for quick country guide.

A typical game shooting 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
