The Experience

More pretty 19th-century hunting lodge than grand château, la Villette sits in 40 idyllic acres of parkland, close to a huge spring-fed lake: borrow the row boat and potter. Capable, hospitable, generous Karin – dynamic gardener, fine cook – loves and cares for each inch of the place. A winding staircase leads to a beauty of a bedroom done in Biedermeier style, with a sloping ceiling and serene views; the second room too is seductive. Feather duvets will cosset you, elegant breakfasts and dinners at the convent table will delight you, and nothing is too much trouble for Karin.

Wonderful hospitality from Karin. Fabulous secluded location, owners and property full of character. Delicious breakfast and dinner. We will be back.

PHILIP, Bishops Waltham

An absolutely wonderful place to stay. A real hidden gem. Fantastic and beautiful grounds to explore and probably the most peaceful place I've ever stayed. Karin is a great host, a marvellous cook, has a super sense of humour and has lots of interesting stories to share. Highly recommended.


A truly special place to stay. Karin is a welcoming and generous hostess. We shared a memorable dinner with her where almost everything was from the garden and even the ducks were off the lake. Very comfortable room in such a delightful setting. Highly recommend


a glorious 3 days unwinding with the help of Karin, (and her sweet dogs). Karin made everything special. Delicious breakfasts, wonderful dinners, and most welcome cups of tea after days out exploring. We sat by the pool, walked in the woods, and enjoyed the beauty of this place. After 4 nights here we felt we were saying goodbye to a dear friend.
