In the heart of the Toulouse region, discover the atmosphere of a "family house" where 22 generations have left the imprint of their personality and their time.

No archive of the castle is available before the Middle Ages but we know from a reliable source that in the XNUMXth century, the lords were suspected of heresy: they had indeed embraced the Cathar faith and were persecuted.

Then, centuries pass and the lordship of Loubens landed in the hands of Philippe de Loubens-Verdalle. It is he who brings the changes to the castle, passing from an austere residence to a pleasant typical XNUMXth century residence. From this period dates in particular the beautiful staircase tower.
The Lords of Loubens are important figures in the region, and over the years acquired many small lordships like that of Auriac.

After the French Revolution, the castle was abandoned. It was then bought by a capitoul of Toulouse, Joseph-Francois de Gounon. His son and then his grandson will make many improvements in the area including the creation of the park, today classified "Remarkable Garden of France".

In the 200th century came the second golden age of the castle, since the Loubens estate brought together a total of XNUMX ha of land! The Gounon de Loubens live from agricultural production and in particular from the cultivation of wheat.

The current owners of the castle are the descendants of the Gounon-Loubens.

Group visits are guided by the owners and can be booked all year round.
You will discover: the underground offices, the granaries (small museum by J. de Gounon-Loubens), the furnished apartments of the castle (15 rooms), the 4 hectare park with the Midi terrace, the small wood and the fountains .

The visit is free for individuals: you will find numerous information panels and historical sound points in all the rooms. Allow about an hour and a half for a tour of the buildings and a tour of the park.
