The Château de Villette was built in Condécourt outside of Paris at the end of the seventeenth century according to the plans of Louis XIV's architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart and surrounded by luscious formal gardens designed by Le Nôtre. Its magnificent artistic and artisanal heritage has been carefully preserved and restored by the current owners and enhanced by Jacques Garcia's recent renovation. With its magnificent hexagonal hall, Châteaude Villette boasts the first formal dining room conceived for a French château, complete with carved stone buffets and corner fountains. Other rooms have been enhanced with fabulous silks rewoven in Lyon, and furnished with a world-class collection of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century furniture and paintings. The gardens, with their shaded bosquets, sculptures, obelisks, and cascading water features have been restored according to their original designs. The privately-owned château was classified as a historical monument in 1942, and has been the scene of numerous films, including The Da Vinci Code .

Since the Chinese translation of The Da Vinci Code was released in China in 2004, the “Dan Brown Craze” has swept across the country. All of Brown’s novels have subsequently been translated into Chinese and sold millions of copies. No living foreign writer has generated so much media coverage and scholarship in China within such a short period of time; not even Toni Morrison or J.K. Rowling. Brown’s rendering of dichotomies, such as science and religion, humanity and divinity, good and evil, and liberty and privacy, resonates well with his Chinese readers because they feel that these issues are no longer irrelevant to them. They see an urgent need for a revision, if not an entire redefinition, of their existing beliefs and values. This book examines the plot, characterization, themes, setting, codes, knowledge, institutions, and techniques in his novels, and delivers a careful textual analysis, a selective dissemination of relevant information on different subjects, and a perceptive comparison between Brown and other Chinese and Western writers. As such, it shows how his thrillers have been appreciated and studied in China, and what kinds of discoveries, challenges, controversies, and insights have surfaced in the Chinese appreciation of Brown’s novels. Furthermore, the book explores why the “Dan Brown Craze” has lasted this long and exerted a broad and far-reaching impact upon the reading, writing, studying, translating, publishing, and marketing of fiction in China.

The definitive truth within Dan Brown's fantastic fiction—revealed at last. With millions of copies of his books in print, a major motion picture based on The Da Vinci Code in theaters, and religious leaders everywhere launching scathing attacks on his work, Dan Brown is, quite simply, a phenomenon. His novels, intricate mosaics combining well-researched facts with action-packed storytelling, have created their own industry of location tours, seminars—even PBS specials. But perhaps the one thing that still keeps his readers guessing is that nagging question: How much of this is true? The Unauthorized Dan Brown Companion tells all. Unlike the avalanche of books specifically about The Da Vinci Code , The Unauthorized Dan Brown Companion covers all of Dan Brown's books and, crucially, has no religious agenda or political axe to grind—these are the facts. • Could there actually be an unbreakable code that would cripple US intelligence, as in Digital Fortress? • How much truth lies in The Da Vinci Code's history-altering propositions that have so angered the Vatican? • Are the Illuminati from Angels and Demons really alive and well? The answers are here, covering every picture, place, proper name, and historical event through all of Brown's books, explaining what's absolutely true, possible, improbable, or completely fictitious. One of Dan Brown's greatest accomplishments as a writer is his uncanny ability to blur the line between fact and fiction. Now, with The Unauthorized Dan Brown Companion, readers will at last have all of the information to distinguish for themselves between the inventions of a master storyteller and the historical revelations of a first-rate investigator. John Helfers is a full-time writer and editor currently living on Green Bay, Wisconsin. He is the co-editor of The Valdemar Companion, a guide to the work and life of fantasy writer Mercedes Lackey. Recent published books include two anthologies he edited, In the Shadow of Evil and Slipstreams. He has also written nonfiction, with his history of the United States Navy, The Alpha Bravo Delta Guide to the U.S. Navy, published in 2003.

Who knows more about traveling well through Europe than the British? And The Good Hotel Guides are at the very top of the British market in terms of respect and customer loyalty. Now in their twenty-eighth year, “The Guides” have become a British institution. Every year the U.K.’s leading newspapers and travel magazines eagerly report on who’s in and who’s out in the latest edition of these indispensable travel companions known for their uncompromising integrity. The Guides feature only recommended establishments that deliver good value for the money, from budget accommodations to five-star hotels. Destinations that fail to live up to their promise are removed, while newly proven discoveries are added. The emphasis is almost entirely on family- or independently owned establishments, from B&Bs to grand resorts. The Guides have been described as “a triumph of participatory democracy.” The editors combine their own research with comments from regular contributors and hundreds of volunteer reader-correspondents. And The Guides are uncommonly good reads. They are championed by well-known travel writers, who themselves are voluntary contributors. A sure reason for their long-term success is that the Guides are based on the concept that by following the advice of a trusted friend, you can find the secret places that most guidebooks never find – the superb English country mansion, the perfect guesthouse beside a church, delightful Italian pensiones, and grand French châteaux. The Good Hotel Guides specialize in discovering just such places for their thousands of devoted readers. These two companion volumes – eighteen countries across western and eastern Europe in one, Great Britain and Ireland in the other – are unsurpassed in their integrity and readability. No advertising, complimentary lodging, or services are accepted by the reviewers
