Villiers was born in Boulogne in the département of Vendée, France. He received a Master's Degree in law in 1971, graduated from the Paris Institute of Political Studies in 1973, and graduated from the National School of Administration in 1978. After university, Villiers became a successful entrepreneur. He created Puy du Fou, one of the most visited themeparks in France, as a living showcase for its history.
