CHATEAU De VILLETTE
If you're on a Da Vinci Code tour of Paris, you can't miss Sir Leigh Teabing's residence: Ch�teau de Villette. This place is not only real�it's unreal!. Located 35 minutes northwest of Paris, it is an 18 -bedroom, 21-bath, 3-kitchen estate. I met the owner, Olivia Hsu Decker, in Fiji a couple of years ago. We have a mutual friend, so she gave us an inside tour of the 185-acre property. If you want to check it out yourself, Olivia offers DVC packages with tours and lodgings for 3,900 to 4,300 � ($4,700 - 5,100) per person (excluding airfare). For something less extravagant, try the Chateau's DVC gourmet tours; they include a meal from a renowned chef. The lunch tour runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (140 � per person = $168); the dinner tour is from 5 to 9:30 p.m. (180 � = $216). Ch�teau de Villette, Villette@TheDaVinciCodeChateau.com.
