About the neighborhood
The Chateau des Milandes overlooks the Dordogne river and was home to Josephine Baker. She awed Paris with her flamboyant revues in the first half of the twentieth century and later moved to Les Milandes where she famously adopted twelve children known as the 'Rainbow Tribe'. The Chateau now features an exhibition to her extraordinary life as well as parkland and formal French gardens. Well worth a visit, there are also falconry displays and a small restaurant.

Spend a day meandering down the river passing magnificent medieval castles, old stone bridges and breathtaking scenery - it's really lovely and you can enjoy a picnic on its banks.

You can also partake in a variety of outdoor activities including ballooning and flying, canoeing, caves, cycling, fishing, golf, markets,...
