Chateau Raysse is an utterly charming and romantic medieval castle in the Dordogne valley not far from the banks of the River Dordogne.

The Raysse family built the castle’s tower in 1155. The family was allied to the French Aquitaine duchy, which sided with the Englishman and later King of England, Richard the Lionheart & his wife, Eleanor against the French king, Louis VII. The body of the Chateau was built at the end of the religious wars (about 1690).

The ancient castle is a beautiful backdrop for your wedding. It sits close to the River Dordogne and the tiny village of Cazoules with its exceptional bakery. Souillac is a charming town 5 minutes away by car. The Périgord region in which the Dordogne sits is the birthplace of modern, Cro-Magnon (v. Neanderthal) man. Believed to be 17,000 years old, The ancient cave paintings at Lascaux are not to be missed. The Dordogne brims over with beautiful countryside and medieval towns and villages with a cornucopia of culinary delights at superb prices.

Getting there is easy. It is close to 3 international airports and there’s a rail station at Souillac on the Paris-Brive-Cahors-Toulouse line.

For whatever requests you may have we are waiting for you at Chateau Raysse. So why not come and visit us in glorious Dordogne?

We have booked our wedding for Raysse next year and have been out to visit a few times already. We absolutely love the property and the grounds and can't wait for June 2019. On each occasion we have visited Malachai has been on hand at a time to suit our movements and has been able to provide practical advice and recommend fantastic wedding suppliers who have also gone above and beyond. Away from the venue they have also replied promptly in answering any questions we have had via email.

5 stars! I always wanted to have a fairytale wedding, with all my friends and family in a breath-taking castle. What I quickly discovered was that my dream wedding was going to cost A LOT! Moreover, in France many of the very sophisticated chateaux have a lot of rules and regulations about the number of guests you can have or charge a corkage fee etc. We were recommended Chateau Raysse by some friends who had married there some years before us. They said that they had travelled the width and breadth of France looking for their ideal wedding venue and Chateau Raysse was the pick of the bunch for them. They also said that the owners were really relaxed which meant that they could make their wedding very personalised. When we visited the Chateau Raysse in depths of winter, it was a little rough round the edges... but it had such charm and so much space for all of our guests. Moreover, we felt that we got bang for our buck! We were able to create a real spectacle wedding and we had the support of Malachai and his family which was amazing. Although I am half French, it was still helpful having lots of English-speakers on hand. I would recommend this as a wedding venue for any couple who is looking for something breath-taking.
