Château des Milandes

The old House of Josephine Baker-Raptors show

Welcome to the Château des Milandes

Must-See in Dordogne Périgord! The visit of the Château des Milandes is a wonderful dive in the castle life at the time of Josephine Baker Whose fate remains out of the ordinary.

Built in 1489 by François de Caumont, Seigneur of Castelnaud, on the initiative of his wife Claude de Cardaillac, this Renaissance castle enjoys a wonderful panorama on the Dordogne valley. Slate roofs, woodwork, large mulled windows and beautifully preserved stained glass are the architectural and aesthetic charm of the chateau. The Renaissance fireplaces mingle with the art-deco bathrooms, the gargoyles scrutinize the garden and its centuries-old magnolias.

Visit with brochure or audio guide and songs of the artist.

Shop. Free parking. Activities around the falconry (children 5 to 10 years old) and feeding of exotic birds during all holidays.
