Sit back and picture a boho chic wedding venue in the Dordogne, friends and family gathered, tucking into awesome French food on long wooden banquet tables decorated with wild flowers. If this sounds like your tasse de thé then Chateau Barayre is the place for you.

The domaine is a venue we like for its beauty but also its casual vibe and sustainable approach to weddings. It dates back to the 12th century and it’s worth name dropping to your guests that even the Pope Clement IV spent a few nights at the Chateau!
Now let’s imagine your wedding celebration there…
For the ceremony, you have the choice of either the romantic Church adjacent to the chateau or next to the small pond in the shade of the impressive 300 yr old Cedar tree.
Afterwards head towards the inner courtyard’s floral garden for fresh cocktails and nibbles. Turn up the vibe with a band’s joyful ballads whilst the children enjoy themselves in and around the tipis.
The wedding feast will take place under the fairy lights in the forecourt at the foothill of the castle, overlooking the fields. Just imagine the scene: long banquet tables, French vintage crockery and little lamps hanging from the trees….just magical!
When it’s time to party, dance under the stars or head to the beautiful ancient barn to boogie the night away!
On the day after, gather again with your loved ones around the swimming pool, or play some games in the garden. Bake some fresh pizzas with local ingredients, or let yourself be served until sunset. Muse under the starry sky over an unforgettable wedding during which you and your friends and family have created a bond that will last a lifetime.
Finally let’s mention that the estate can sleep up to 26 on site in a total of 11 rooms. There are also over 450 beds within 10 km of the venue, ranging from chateaux to gites de charme and luxury tents at walking distance!
To summarise Chateau Barayre will suit perfectly fun loving couples in search of a great laid-back, sustainable and poetic wedding experience in South of France.
