Pheasant, Partridge & Duck shooting - Burgundy

Chateau de Villette in the heart of Burgundy offers luxury accommodation and superb driven shooting on Pheasant, Partridge and Duck

The Chateau de Villette Shoot - France

Welcome to one of the best places for Wingshooting and Bird Hunting in France. The Chateau surrounded by a 900 ha hunting area and countless lakes and ponds, offers the perfect habitat for game bird shooting and big game stalking. Here you can experience some of the best hunting France offers.

The Shoot

Driven Partridge, Pheasant and Duck shooting - 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 a unique driven bird shooting estate in France, with an English keeper, visited by driven game bird enthusiasts from all over the world.

Waterfowl hunting – Ducks, sometimes Teal or Snipe - Chateau 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. Waterfowl can be shot near crop fields where they feed or, more frequently, on or near bodies of water such as our lakes, ponds, and swamps. Burgundy lies in the middle of the migratory route for wildfowl over Central France,

Walk up shooting - The countryside knowledge and hunting skills required plus the fresh air, exercise and the training and working of specially bred dogs makes rough shooting (or walk-up) one of the most popular, rewarding and lowest cost forms of game bird shooting. We offer Walking up Pheasant, Partridge and Duck.

The Chateau

The Chateau lies in a stunning nature park of the Morvan hills. It is a private and stylish private home, formerly the playground of the French aristocracy. After the complete renovation, it offers sumptuous rooms with fine bed linen, private bathrooms, period and modern furniture and fantastic views into the surrounding gardens. The sitting room offers a big fire place, comfortable sofas and a well-stocked open bar. The food is traditional Burgundy cuisine, accompanied from best French wines.
