Durfort guestroom

A charming XVIII century-style guestroom in vintage pink tones in homage to the Durfort family.

In 1425, Jean de Durfort, heir to the Goth family, expelled Arnaud de Montréal from the castle, who had just taken it by surprise himself. The Durforts thus became the lords of Goudourville. In 1452, Catherine de Durfort, married Armand de Lustrac and brought him the castle as dowry.

"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."
