Chateau Villette is one of the most significant historical chateaux in France. Located  25 miles northwest of Paris,  the magnifecent chateau, known as the "Petite Versailles," was  created by architect Francois Mansart in 1968 for the comte d'Aufflay, Lous XIV's ambassador to Italy.

This spectacular property, nestled within 185 acre of private garden retreat, has been  featured in movies and commercials, most notably The Da Vinci Code.  This movie was partially filmed at the Chateau  Villette by Columbia Pictures/Sony Entertainment staring Tom Hanks, Ian Mckallen and Audrey Tautou with Oscar winning director Ron Howard. In the movie, the chateau was featured as the residence of central character Sir Leigh Teabing, a British Royal historian who revealed the secret of the da vinci code.
