Château des Milandes

The Château des Milandes was built in the 15th century. In 1940, the entertainer Josephine Baker rented the château and then bought it in 1947 and lived there until her death in 1975. It is open to the public and displays her stage outfits including her banana skirt (of which there are apparently several). It also displays many family photographs and documents as well as her Legion of Honour medal. Most rooms are open for the public to walk through including bedrooms with little cots in where her children slept, a huge kitchen and a dining room where she often entertained large groups. The bathrooms are made in art deco style but most rooms retained the French chateau style.
