THE CASTLE THROUGH THE AGES
Built in the 13th century by the Lords of Poudenas who were subjects of Edward the First, a Plantagenet, Duke of Aquitaine and King of England, the castle of Poudenas stands up for the valley of the Gelise river, fifty meters below at the point where the forest of the Landes begins.
A military fortification until the 16th century, the castle featured mullioned windows.
One hundred years later, a complete re-modeling of the interior courtyard created two suspended terraces and the wide façade with a triple arcade reminiscent of an Italian villa with its surrounding landscape.
We organize tours for groups of more than 10 people by appointment.

We also belong to a club of Castles
in the Lot et Garonne.
Following the rhythm of the seasons,
Jean and Alix de Nadaillac welcome you in all simplicity, in an authentic framework full of charm where traditions and the art of living in Gascony are wonderfully combined.
For your stays in the cosy cottages and, within the grounds of the castle, for your wedding, family or friendly receptions or professional seminars.
