    • The castle was built in 1489 by Francois de Caumont, Lord of Castelnaud, under the intiative of his wife Claude de Cardaillac. The name « Milandes » indicates that the Middle Age it was a forest area, located between the strongholds of Castelnaud and Berbiguières, which was owned by Caumont. The castle of Milandes remained the main residence of the Caumont family until 1535, allowing them to manage their estate while enjoying an elegant residence, far from the auster environment of the feudal fortress of Castelnaud.
      In 1900, it became the property of Charles Claverie, a rich industrialist who carried out important alterations. Mr Claverie widow rented Milandes to a certain Doctor Malès in 1932.

    We chose to visit Milandes on a rainy day but we could have gone anytime and enjoyed it just as much. Amazing history, well illustrated and well presented. allow a couple of hours for the house alone.
