Castle and gardens of Milandes
The house of Josephine Baker
Only 20 km from the Moulin de la Beune
Built in 1489, this enchanting residence reveals a Renaissance architecture with magnificent Gothic elements.
Its history, or rather, that of its occupants over the centuries is worthy of a novel by Alexandre Dumas.
Particularly during the wars of religion which saw, among other tragic events, the empoissement of the master of the places.
Abandoned to the revolution it was bought and restored in 1900 by a French industrialist attached to the Sarladais: Charles Auguste Claverie.
It is Josephine Baker who made known to the world ...
Josephine Baker, a real star, a name, a legend of the song, but also of humanity.
"All men do not have the same color, the same language, nor the same manners, but they have the same heart, the same blood, the same need of love."
A castle, a memory, a legend ..
A site not to be missed during your stay in Périgord!
You can also see a raptor show: about 70 raptors live at the castle.
