Château du Raysse
Welcome to Château du Raysse – an enchanting Medieval castle in the Dordogne with breathtaking views of the beautiful countryside. The Château dates back to 1155 and is steeped in history.
It offers 15 comfortable en-suite rooms as well as a two bedroom apartment. There are two swimming pools, gorgeous grounds, two kitchens, grand hall, dining hall, library, patios, balconies and much more.
A charming château, full of character, you and your party will enjoy private en-suite rooms, filled with heaps of period features. The views from the rooms are simply breath-taking, looking over the beautiful rolling hills and green forests.
All basic amenities are included to make your stay comfortable and you will have complete and exclusive access to the estate during your stay.
The facilities include one large, modern kitchen which is fully equipped with ovens, hobs, fridges, freezers, washing machine and plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment. There is also a smaller rustic kitchen to use.
There is a comfortable library – with its own adjoining bar – perfect for a cosy drink in one of the comfy armchairs. There is also a dining area, which you are welcome to use. In the adjoining maison there is a large hall which you can also access and is a great area for games and socialising.
On the estate there are two swimming pools, surrounded by sun loungers, and plenty of grounds to explore.
The area is simply stunning and is within easy reach of Sarlat and Rocamadour as well as all the other local tourist attractions.
There is ample parking on site.
WEDDINGS AND EVENTS AT THE CHATEAU
Although perfect for holidays, the Chateau is also used for weddings and private events throughout the year.
The Estate offers many beautiful options for your celebrations. If you would like an al-fresco celebration then the area under the main balcony of the honeymoon suite is a favourite!
There is also the front of the Château which is equally beautiful and then an additional large lawn behind the picturesque swimming pool with views of the hills and valley beyond. There is ample room to erect a marquee which we can help to organise on request.
Our large hall with its exposed wooden beams can cater for up to 70 guests seated or for larger groups for dancing. It leads out on to an extensive terrace with views of the Chateau.
During your stay, you and your guests can enjoy two kitchens, dining area, library/living room, hall, two swimming pools and beautiful grounds. We can provide children’s cots and mattresses in the rooms at no extra cost and several of the rooms are perfect for families.
For catering and other suppliers, we can help arrange this for you throughout your stay. We can help organise your wedding package and catering and also provide suggestions and support for the rest of your stay as well. We also have a list of recommended suppliers which will help guide you.
At our Enchanting Medieval Château we are entirely flexible and so can offer as much or as little support as you require – meaning you have the freedom and flexibility to do whatever you wish to make your stay just perfect.
There is ample parking on site and you can enjoy any length of stay with us – from two days, to two weeks, we will be happy to help create your vision of a beautiful Chateau wedding become a reality!
If you did need extra accommodation for additional guests, we’re lucky enough to have a guest house at the end of the Chateau’s driveway which can accommodate another nine guests.
In addition, there is a pretty campsite a fifteen minute walk from the Château or you may even wish to choose to have glamping tents in the grounds of the Château itself.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to help!
