Gasques guestroom

A XVIII century-style guestroom with gold hangings and cherubs on the wall.

The Gasques family built the castle in 1081 and stayed owner until 1374. In 1278, Seguin de Gasques, lord of Goudourville, recorded the conventions and customs of the Castellany of Goudourville, thereby setting the rules governing daily life (marriage, taxes, theft, etc.) for the whole region.

"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."
