“Guided tour of the Château de Raray”

Classified as a historical monument, this castle has seen its architecture evolve over the centuries. Known for its hunting gallery and its 17th century castle, the property which houses the golf course reveals towards the woods a pretty door sculpted with a majestic unicorn called the "Red Door".

In the courtyard a strange carved decoration welcomes you representing hunting scenes, which was the passion of all the owners of these places.

Raray Castle brought its poetry to the famous film "Beauty and the Beast" by Jean Cocteau who fell in love with the place.

Mandatory reservation.
Meet in front of the entrance gate of the Château de Raray.
Visit of the exteriors of the Château only.

After a cannon bombardment aimed at the Cathedral on 2
