In Arcadian Périgord, guarding the Dordogne Valley close to the River Dordogne, Chateau Raysse is a resplendent Mediaeval chateau constructed in the twelfth and seventeenth centuries. The ancient estate of 12 hectares comprises three main rental properties and two swimming pools.
The Chateau itself comprises three living rooms and seven bedrooms. The charming estate includes two other rental properties, La Maison Du Parc, a converted annexe sleeping 18 people and Le Pigeonnier, a reworked pigeon house that sleeps up to five.

The body of the Chateau was built at the end of the religious wars (about 1690).
The overlayings of history interweave the fibrous cultural interstices of Chateau Raysse in this ancient land, the Perigord, which is the birthplace of modern (Cro Magnon) man.
