Caumont guestroom

Medieval guestroom with canopy bed and decorative joinery, and beautiful view of the esplanade along the ramparts.

It was thanks to the Castle of Goudourville that the Caumonts, one of the oldest and most illustrious families of the Kingdom, married into a family as great as their own: the Lustracs. Marguerite de Lustrac married Geoffroy de Caumont, Duke of La Force and childhood companion of Henry IV.
Their daughter, Anne de Caumont, very quickly became one of the richest heiresses in the Kingdom. She was taken from her mother by her tutor at the age of 7, to be married. Her life took a great many eventful turns, including duels and battles between lords.

"The six best places to stay in France"

The reference guide Sawdays Alastairs has tracked down these top locations offering both modern conveniences and traditional charm. The Castle of Goudourville, a medieval splendour without the cold draughts but with the hot showers, and a romantic atmosphere to boot. The guestrooms are more than spacious and spectacular with solid wood canopy beds. The Clément V, lavishly decorated in rich reds; the Charles IX, encased in white stone walls and decked out in silky creams. The bathtubs are deep and the bathrooms dripping in fluffy towels.
There is a wooded terrace overlooking the Garonne, a large swimming pool and tonnes of things to see and do. Begin with the castle chapel, built in the 11th century and magnificently preserved."
