You can never have too many questions when it comes to your wedding day!
Here are some answers to the most common queries we’ve had from the many couples we’ve worked with.

If you have any other questions then we’re here to help –
email or drop us a quick message on our contact page.

What does the venue rental price include?

Booking a wedding or event at Château du Raysse includes complete exclusive access to the Estate. The du Raysse Estate comprises of the Château, the Maison du Parc and the Pigeonnier apartment. In total we offer 15 beautiful and unique ensuite bedrooms and then another two bedrooms with one bathroom in the apartment. We can comfortably sleep 35 adults and additional children.
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.
The rental price excludes catering.

Will I need to hire my own tables and chairs?

Although we have plenty of tables and chairs at the Château for general use, if you would like everything to match for your special day then we recommend Chapiteaux en Perigord,. They have plenty of styles to choose from and can provide beautiful marquees as well as tables and chairs and other furniture. We have a list of recommended suppliers here to help you organise other elements of the big day.

How many guests can I invite to my wedding?

We don’t have an official cap on guest numbers for weddings and events – although for an outdoor ceremony and reception we would suggest that the Château’s grounds would be suitable for up to 200 people. If you’re thinking about using the Maison’s hall for an indoor reception, then 60 guests would perhaps be more comfortable. We can be very flexible – if you let us know further down the line roughly how many guests you’d like to invite, we can make suggestions about where the ceremony and reception would work the best and help you find the right suppliers in the area.

Are there other places nearby where my wedding guests can stay?

We can host 35-40 guests on site, and we’re lucky enough to have lots of hotels and excellent Airbnb accommodation nearby. There are numerous other properties in the village which are available on Airbnb and there are some lovely hotels in Souillac which is just five minutes away. In addition, there is a pretty campsite a fifteen minute walk from the Château.

Do you offer catering?

As a venue, we offer excellent flexibility. The venue can be used as you wish and therefore there are no restrictions on catering. This means you can choose your own caterers or we can help recommend suppliers who would best suit your requirements. If you require help organising your catering, then please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

Can I bring my own drink?

Yes. Once again, we pride ourselves on our flexibility and our rental price includes exclusive hire of the venue, meaning that it is completely yours to enjoy for the duration of your stay. Therefore there are no limits on bringing alcohol on site (within reason!) so guests can provide their own drink for weddings and events. We also do not charge corkage. We can recommend some excellent local vineyards to supply wine for your special occasion
