Chateau Raysse

Information About the Region


Chateau Raysse rests close to the River Dordogne and the tiny village of Cazoules with its bar / restaurants. It is idyllic cycling and walking territory along dedicated paths.
Chateau Raysse is a gorgeous hideaway for families, seminars, weddings or workgroups.

Getting there is easy. It is close to four international airports and rail. Chateau Raysse is situated in a lush countryside of wooded hills and hidden valleys, vineyards, walnut groves and orchards, fields of maize and sunflowers, farms producing foie gras, towering chateaux and ancient villages and towns, which scatter a landscape steeped in history.

There is a quality of life here, old values still exist together with the benefits of modern living and the people are open and welcoming. Almost everywhere you go are restaurants ranging from family run country ones to gastronomic, all at reasonable prices.


The Abbey, Souillac
La Roque Gageac


Only 300m away, Cazoules has a sleepy bar-restaurant and a renowned boulangerie.
A five minute drive away, Souillac has lots of charming shops, an enclave of old streets, the byzantine-domed abbey church of Ste Marie with exquisite carvings and a remarkable museum containing a large collection of automated dolls! It hums to an International Jazz Festival in mid-July.
Sarlat’s Saturday morning market is famous, full of chatter and colour, the stalls spreading into the narrow streets around the market square. The town is famed for its medieval, Gothic and 17th century architectureand a pleasant place to wander through, particularly in the early and later part of the year when it is quiet. The square in front of the Cathedral is a good spot to stop and sit on a cafe terrace and watch the world go by and there are several restaurants to choose from. It also has an active and varied programme of musical and theatrical events through the summer month
