Imagine you, your family and your friends celebrating your marriage or other special event in a beautiful historic château.
A venue which allows you to combine your wedding day with the holiday of a lifetime, with all of your closest family and friends, all in a beautiful setting in which you can design a wedding as unique and creative as the both of you.
Your fairytale château wedding is more affordable than you think!
The estate sleeps 35 guests and prices start from just 1380 euros a night for exclusive rental of the entire estate (approximately 40 euros per person, per night). This includes exclusive access for you and your guests, venue hire, concierge service, toiletries, towels and linens.
There are no corkage fees. Plus, stays of seven nights or more will receive an additional discount of up to 30%.
Setting the scene
Surrounded by 20 acres of the stunning Dordogne Valley and a past reaching all the way back into the twelfth century, Château du Raysse has so much to offer both as a romantic French wedding venue and as an unforgettable holiday home.
Stunning views, charming medieval architecture, friendly locals and a fantastic variety of fun things to do nearby – all of which make for relaxed and happy wedding guests!
You can view more about what’s on offer nearby on our explore page.
Planning Your Day
For the duration of your stay you would also have the entire estate to yourselves, with all the grounds, kitchens, reception rooms and swimming pools at your disposal.
With many beautiful gardens and elegant reception rooms, you can choose a setting for your ceremony and reception which speaks most to you. We encourage you to visit the Château for a tour of the grounds so you can clearly imagine how your special day would unfold.
The vast grounds and hillside setting mean that you aren’t limited by the curfew that many standard wedding venues impose. You can celebrate with your family and friends long into the night – and enjoy breakfast and coffee by your private pool the following morning!
“We spent a week here at the end of June with friends and family, to celebrate our wedding. I don’t think we could have picked a more romantic place to get married! The Château is full of so much character and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. There are two swimming pools which I think were the biggest hit among everybody, even on the wedding night we were being serenaded by the band while we all cooled off in the pool. I really do hope to return someday and would highly recommend anybody to have a holiday here or better yet get married here!”

At Château du Raysse, we give you the freedom to choose. So, if you would like to hire the Château for your wedding and provide your own suppliers, you are more than welcome.
Alternatively, we can help you plan your wedding by liaising with recommended suppliers at no extra cost.
We have an exceptional catering partner on-hand as an additional service, but if you want to self-cater the reception then this is absolutely fine as well. We have two well-appointed kitchens with the space and gadgets you need to whip up a spectacular wedding feast.
