Just outside Nantes and its vineyards, Goulaine is the first castle along the Loire. Nestled in a lush, green backdrop, this Renaissance-era sleeping beauty reveals all its treasures to you.
Home to the same family for the past 1,000 years, its salons are a perfect testimony to the decorative wealth of the 17th century. From the 15th century kitchen to the cabinet of curiosities, by way of Louis XIV’s chamber, a tour of this castle is a whirlwind tour of French history…
