Recommended Caterers
in the South of France

Every wedding or special event should be unique, just like you! As such, we don’t impose specific suppliers and you are free to plan your day however you choose. This includes selecting a catering or food option which will complement the tastes of your guests and ambience of your celebration.

We’ve welcomed some fantastic chefs, catering companies and other food suppliers onto the Raysse Estate over the years, and have plenty of recommendations for you to browse.

We can make introductions for you, or you can contact them directly – please let them know that you found them through Chateau du Raysse’s recommendation.
