Chateau de Goult - Bedrooms
The Chateau sleeps up to 20 people including children, with a maximum of 14 adults. This can be increased to 26 if more children are sleeping in a dorm-type set-up. There are 5 double bedrooms, a twin room, and a single, as well as a suite than can either be a double or a dormitory for children. There are 7 bathrooms.
Master Bedroom with its en suite bathroom (above right), with bathtub, walk-in shower, double basins, separate WC, and double aspect windows.
The Master Bedroom is on its own beyond one of the living rooms and has a large en suite bathroom. The bed was made in an epoch when 1.4m (4.5 ft) was considered a large bed. The other doubles are at least 1.8m wide (6 ft).
The master bathroom on the other hand was created in an era when we understand the pleasures of a very large, light bathroom, with jacuzzi bath and walk-in shower.

The Poterne Room with large bed and bathtub, bathroom through the double doors has shower and WC.
Shower room in the Poterne Room.
The poterne (postern) is the part of the castle that bridges over the road, and the Poterne Room (above) takes advantage of this large space to accommodate a 1.8m wide bed, a bathub and a unique marble and porcelain wash basin. There is a separate room with shower and WC.
The room has great views through big windows to the south, with the tower and the Luberon mountain, as well as over the rooftops.
Like in medieval times, there is no traffic on the road.

Léone's Room with a large double and the option of a daybed that can be used as a single bed. And its view.
Léone's Room (above) is at the top level and is the first of a run of four bedrooms in a row. Each can connect to its neighbouring rooms, and the first three also connect to the corridor that runs outside them. There is a bathroom nearest Léone's Room accessed from the landing, and there is a bathroom at the other end, but only accessed from the last two bedrooms (the Doni Suite, see below). A good use of these rooms is to have parents in the doubles and their children in the singles, although it is possible to have all adults too.

|The Simiane Suite can be a double or a dorm for 7 children,|
Across the corridor from these 4 bedrooms is another large bedroom, the Simiane Suite (left), which can be anything from one beautiful double for adults, to a kids' dorm for up to 7. There is a bathroom with shower, basin and WC in the castle turret by the Simiane Suite.
Down a level, in another part of the chateau, the oldest part, is the Dungeon Room (below). This was the first line of defence for the village against invaders, as the vertical archers' windows testify, and its walls are 6 feet thick. This ensures a remarkably cool and calm atmosphere in the summer. There is an en suite bathroom with walk-in shower, basin and WC (below right).
Downstairs is another bathroom with bathtub, basin and WC.
