    • “I have two loves…my country and Paris…”. Who has never listened to or hummed this beautiful song by Josephine Baker? A 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, an 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 engagements.

      The Château des Milandes is also a Remarkable Garden. Stroll through the paths of the French garden, the water games will follow your progress in the discovery of this theater of greenery and will lead you to the landscaped park below. Dive into the heart of our aviaries of exotic birds by pushing the door of our immersion aviary, open every day and for everyone. Change of scenery guaranteed!

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

      Les Milandes is also full of family entertainment! Workshops and events for young and old allow everyone to immerse themselves in several worlds. Joséphine Baker liked 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 the discovery of this beautiful universe, the brewery is there to welcome you from March 25 to November 12, 2023 and during the Christmas holidays. From lunch to snacks and refreshments, come and enjoy our terrace with a view of the castle.

      New for 2023! The opening of the chapel, a jewel of the 16th century, after five years of work!

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