    • "I have two loves… my country and Paris…". Who has never listened to or hummed this beautiful song by Joséphine Baker? Residence built in the 15th century by the Lords of Caumont, the Château des Milandes was the third love of this great lady of the 20th century for more than thirty years.

      Discover the exciting and hectic life of Joséphine Baker, accomplished and recognized artist of the Music Hall but also a committed and courageous woman during the Second World War. Stroll through the fifteen rooms of the castle to the rhythm of the artist's commitments.

      The Château des Milandes is also a Remarkable Garden. Stroll in the alleys of the French garden, the water games will follow your progress in the discovery of this green theater and will lead you to the landscaped park below. Immerse yourself in the heart of our exotic bird aviaries by pushing the door of our immersion aviary, open every day and for all. Change of scenery guaranteed!

      Another particularity of the Château des Milandes: its spectacle of birds of prey! The history of falconry is told to you while admiring different species of diurnal and nocturnal raptors. You will appreciate the proximity to our birds!

      Les Milandes is also full of family entertainment! Workshops and activities for young and old allow everyone to immerse themselves in several worlds. Joséphine Baker loved to give, transmit and receive and it is only natural that the Château des Milandes follows her convictions through its activities.

      Before, during or after discovering this beautiful universe, the brasserie is there to welcome you from June 3 to November 7, 2021. From lunch to afternoon tea, including refreshments, come and enjoy our terrace with a view of the castle.

      So do not wait any longer, walk through the doors of the Château des Milandes and dive into the heart of an extraordinary place!

    Wow…. This is an absolute must to visit if you are in the area. Stunning gardens, extremely informative tour of the chateau with an audio guide, amazing falconry display and some lovely exotic birds to see en route around the grounds. We had lunch outside on the terrace at the restaurant which was also excellent. Great value for money and a thoroughly great afternoon in the lovely sunshine.

    Amazing, the story of Josephine Baker presents here in the Dordogne is both interesting and moving, such a sad ending to a beautiful life story. The chateau is greatly preserved and presented and get a 10/10 for the children interactive tour, which kept them interested and intrigued. Superb ground and great bird show.

    Felt amazing even in a heat wave. The bird show was very professional (though the English elements were too brief). The gardens have plenty of interest for little ones. The house itself was well worth the visit and unusual for a chateaux in that it's all about it's recent history. Well worth it
