Chateau des Milandes

Josephine Baker's old home-Raptor show

Welcome to Château des Milandes

Essential in Dordogne Périgord! The visit of the Chateau des Milandes is a wonderful dive into the castle life at the time of Joséphine Baker Whose fate remains uncommon.

Built in 1489 by François de Caumont, Seigneur of Castelnaud, on the initiative of his wife Claude de Cardaillac, this Renaissance Castle enjoys a marvellous panorama over the Dordogne Valley. Slate roofs, woodwork, large window with mullions and beautifully preserved stained glass are the architectural and aesthetic charm of the castle. 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. Animations Around Falconry (children 5 to 10 years old) and feeding exotic birds during all holidays.
