We stayed for one week - 2 adults & 2 teenagers - and loved every minute. Lovely cottage with fantastic BBQ area and pool. Spacious, functional, undisturbed in a lovely setting. Many pretty villages in the area, fine canoeing, an abundance of food in the Dordogne in general. We would definitely return.

The site is exceptional, part of the ancient chateau, which belonged to Josephine Baker. Christopher has created a place for relaxing stays. He and his staff were enjoyable attentive. The pool is very pleasant. As well the BBQ. Perfect base in the heart of the Dordogne Valley. We loved it.

About the neighbourhood
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,...
