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.
