Château de Drudas is a remarkable 18th-century property that has actually been listed as a historic monument. The luxury hotel is located in the heart of the Haute-Garonne countryside in France and has been recently renovated by the renowned architect, Pierre-Henri Bouchacourt. Today, Paris Design Agenda takes a look at the marvelous interior design of this outstanding historic hotel that every design lover should certainly experience.
The historic villa presented a great challenge for the interior design studio: to preserve the authentic style of the castle and to integrate a touch of modernity at the same time. The project was successfully completed with respect for its heritage value. Château de Drudas opens its doors for an exceptional stay, where luxury and comfort merge in a special atmosphere.
As we pass the entrance in neutral pastel colours, our eyes are caught by the original locks and mouldings from three centuries ago. In the hall, a beautiful beige Hermès sofa from the Portuguese brand BRABBU completes the interior design with its modern presence and truly embodies the Hotel’s atmosphere.
On the left of the Hall, we find a terrific restaurant – Le Verdurier – located on the ancient ballroom of the castle and managed by the prestigious starred chef Eric Sampietro. A splendid chandelier and beautiful decorative wall lights brighten the restaurant with a glamorous but romantic light.
Château de Drudas highlights two salons: Salon du Potager and Salon Résseguier. The first one presents a calmer and friendly environment that sets the visitor’s mind free while offering a comfortable stay. A rotisserie and a bread wood oven give all its charm to this place. The second one shows off a more professional side but with the same peace and comfort. The tomettes on the floor are the original ones and a beautiful chandelier imposes itself on the middle of the room.
While heading towards the guestrooms, guests will have an authentic renaissance experience courtesy of a massive staircase. The Château has a total of 23 bedrooms, including six duplex suites decorated in an unmistakeably 18th-century style with a few modern touches. They offer all the modern comforts and benefits from a high-quality renovation in line with the demanding criteria required for Historic Monuments.
