Diane D’Andoins guestroom

A generously-proportioned XVIII century-style guestroom in honour of Diane d’Andoins, a great lady allied with the royal houses.

Diane d’Andoins was reputed for her beauty and fine spirit. She was a fervent protector of the troubadours, the companion of Montaigne, who nicknamed her “the beautiful Corisande”, and the mistress held a special place in the affections of Henry IV. She was a political woman and contributed to the reunion of the Béarn and the Crown of France. Diane d’Andoins was a guest at the Castle of Goudourville on several occasions. Henry IV came to find her here on the day following the famous battle of Coutras with the flags of his vanquished enemies.

"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."
