Mr and Mrs Batchelor, May 2019

We got married at Chateau du Raysse in May and it was truly everything we could have hoped for! The venue itself is stunning, with views over the Dordogne valley. We had our ceremony under the stone balcony, next to the Medieval tower and it felt so romantic!
We chose Château du Raysse because it gave us so much more freedom in the wedding in the UK. The venue is yours for the week and you can either do things yourself or bring in outside caterers – you can provide your own drink (no corkage) and we could choose where we wanted the different elements of our day (gardens, hall, lawns etc.)

We could have stayed forever!

Kathryn Allen, July 2019

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 Chateau 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. Martina & Darren were a great help too. I really do hope to return someday and would highly recommend anybody to have a holiday here or better yet get married here!
Love from the Allens xx

We just completed a week-long stay at the Château! Hats off to the Family of Darren and Martina and kids, who tended to our large(and sometimes a little needy group of 30 family and friends! They are wonderful and went so far above and beyond to help make our stay a lifetime experience.
The property is picturesque and the upkeep of a building like the Château, which dates back to the 1200s is an ongoing endeavor for sure. But the place is awesome; the pool was perfect to gather and recap the days discoveries after taking in some of the sites in the historic nearby villages. And as a bonus Darren and Martina are terrific!

Colin Smith, May 2019

My daughter’s wedding was hosted at the 800 year old Château du Raysse in May and it is a wonderful picturesque venue in the heart of the beautiful countryside of the Dordogne. With two kitchens, huge common room, lounges, grounds and several swimming pools this lovely old house can easily accommodate 40 guests. The concierge Darren and Martina made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Off site the location is ideal for country walks, river trips and site seeing. The restaurants and local town are brilliant too. You won’t be disappointed if you choose the château for your special day.

Becky Dawson-Tuck, June 2019

I had the pleasure of staying for a week to attend my friend’s wedding. Château du Raysse is everything you could want, the views of surrounding area are perfect, the gardens are beautiful and the rooms inside are very exciting and comfortable. The chateau is an amazing place to stay for a wedding but equally fantastic for exploring the area .

Madalynn Lightfoot, June 2019

Have just spent a week at the Château celebrating my daughter’s wedding. If you are looking for that fairy tale wedding then I recommend this château. It is very rustic and has a lot of charm. The grounds are superb with two pools and plenty of outside space. Thanks go to Darren and Martina for being there every day keeping the grass cut and making the gardens look beautiful. We all had a very enjoyable week and would like to do it all over again.


This place is unbelievable for weddings but would also make a great venue for family get together and also would be great for sporting trips to the city of Toulouse.


After exploring the grounds, spending the night, and chatting with the dedicated care takers we had zero doubts about making it our wedding venue.


The Chateau and its grounds are a wonderland for children and adults alike to explore – each bedroom is unique and very comfortable.
