With all the great Chateau that you can visit in the Dordogne, you can afford to miss this house. Chateau Milandes is so much better and entry is the same price.

Dear Madam,

We are delighted that the Château des Milandes has been a pleasure. It is a place full of memories around Joséphine Baker, the family of Gisson high magistrates since the XV Century has less affected you and we regret it. Also, since you compare I want to correct your remarks, the price of Milandes is 38% higher than ours.

We wish you a good end of stay in France, and we thank you for sharing your feelings.

The manoir is in the heart of the medieval city of Sarlat , in The Dordogne . It is only a small mansion but has some lovely furniture. You are given a guide book in English on entering with facts about the occupants & details of the furniture in each rooms .In some rooms there are manikins dressed in the costumes of the period .

Go inside and you'll find the lower floor really bizarre!

We've all heard that in past times wealthy personages loved to collect unfamiliar objects! Here you have an assemblage of the most odd and sometimes gruesome objects! Squeamish beware in these chambers of curiosities! Up the spiral stone staircase rooms radiate off, the domestic spaces including fully furnished, kitchen,dining room/salon, bedrooms,dressing rooms boudoir, servants room and loft all feeling just as though their owners had just left. There are specially themed areas and a good detailed guide to the artefacts in English.

The best thing about this house is that you are permitted to get close to the exhibits. Often the most interesting part of exhibits is in the detail and you don't miss out here. The descriptions of all the rooms and the history of the family and this house is in French on panels on the walls, but the reception will give you a folder with the exact English translation. Everything is numbered so it is easy to follow. History brought to life! No objection to photographs being taken either.

Its an old high status townhouse once owned by the family who ran Sarlat. It is fully furnished with original furniture and fixtures and gives a really great insight into how people of this status lived in past . The cabinet of curiosities in the basement was interesting and would be great for kids. A very pleasant way to pass an hour or so.
