Les Milandes - 4 Houses
About the home
With the Chateau des Milandes forming a spectacular backdrop and its breathtaking views over the Dordogne, Les Milandes offers four charming properties with pools, which have been sympathetically restored to a high standard. Under an hour from Bergerac airport.
Les Milandes is just under an hour from Bergerac Airport with connections from London, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and many other regional airports. Near to Sarlat, Domme and Les Eyzies in the Perigord Noir. Surrounded by five historic and romantic chateaux, Les Milandes is ideally situated both to explore the wealth of local history and culture or simply to relax and enjoy the river or swimming pools and have a relaxing holiday.
"We fell in love with Les Milandes whilst staying there in 2001 and were lucky enough to become its new owners in the following year. To us, it is a very special place both for the beauty of the Dordogne area and also for its unique feeling of timelessness, tranquillity and well-being.
Our wish is that all who stay with us, both friends, family and guests, experience a little of the magic of the Dordogne that exists at Les Milandes"

The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
Conveniently located near to the enchanting Perigord Noir towns of Sarlat, Domme and Les Eyzies, Les Milandes is ideally located to explore the regions' wealth of history and culture. Famous for gastronomic specialties including foie gras and truffles, the region boasts an array of vineyards, the fruits of which can be sampled in one of the many enjoyable restaurants nearby. Alternatively, the area is ripe for relaxation with the river banks to enjoy, quaint villages to discover and the impressive chateaux that line the banks of the Dordogne River to explore.
Sarlat itself must one of the medieval "gems" of Europe. Enjoy a coffee in the Place in Sarlat and imagine yourself transported back in time. It now enjoys good shops, several excellent restaurants and is lovely to just explore as around every corner you will find another sight to take your breath away.
The Sarlat / Les Milandes area
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, riding, tennis and vineyards.
