The Dordogne Sights

Château des Milandes

Fodor's Review

Five kilometers (3 miles) from Castelnaud, the turreted Château des Milandes was built around 1489 in Renaissance style, and has lovely terraces and gardens. It was once owned by the American-born cabaret star of Roaring '20s Paris, Josephine Baker, and it was here that she housed her "rainbow family"—a large group of adopted children from many countries. An onsite museum is devoted to her memory. Falconry displays (April to October) are another attraction. From here

D53 (via Belvès) leads southwest to Monpazier.
