The Villa

Formerly called “La Retraite Sentimentale”, since the sale by Mr. and Mrs. Jeanneret, the estate has become “Villa DUO”.

This house from 1721, which we like to believe that the writer Colette called it “her little farm”, is located precisely below the Maison de Colette.

The magnificent estate overlooks Besançon in the Montboucons district, a stone’s throw from Témis , a cutting-edge area in micro-techniques and the tertiary sector.

The villa now has a restaurant , 3 bedrooms , a studio and an independent house, the blue house

The Garden

We welcome you to a wooded garden of just over 400 m² with swimming pool, breathtaking view of Besançon and its Citadel.

You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner on one of the three terraces in season.

Our pergola decorated with wisteria and vines will shade your discussions and appetizers with friends.

The children will enjoy the lawn and the swings.


The pool area secured by barriers offers you a moment of relaxation with deckchairs and shades around the swimming pool, which is 7 meters long and 4 meters wide.

It is directly accessible from the blue house, via the garden for the bedrooms and the studio.

Access to the swimming pool is reserved for adult clients of La Villa DUO and implies acceptance of its payment. Children are allowed accompanied by an adult.
Visitors are not allowed in the pool area.
