The castle is delighted to welcome groups of 15 persons or more: the site, labelled “Maisons des Illustres”, is a superb tribute to one of the most famous Music-Hall artists, Josephine Baker!

Several tour packages are available for our groups who can appreciate the special atmosphere of the castle. The gardens, restored to their former glory in 2016, are particularly incredible.

Our group and individual visitors also have the option of having lunch in our brasserie which can accommodate up to 120 persons.

Here are the tours offered:



If your group prefers a visit in complete autonomy, the free flow visit is the most suitable. On arrival, you set off at your own pace on a visit with our comprehensive audio-guide. Audio-guides are available in French, English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Chinese.

During this tour, you will enjoy a visit to the castle, a stroll around the gardens and a Bird of Prey demonstration. While exploring the gardens, our diurnal and nocturnal birds are visible in the upper park. Below, in the large park, two aviaries allow you to discover some of our exotic birds such as cockatiels, lovebirds and kakarikis.

This type of visit allows one of our friendly and knowledgeable guides to accompany your group. Each member will receive an audio headset (or audio-phone) and will listen to our guide via this device optimising security in the castle and assuring a truly unique and enjoyable visit!

For reasons of safety and comfort of your visit, a guide accompanies a maximum of 30 people; for groups of more than 30 people, we will arrange a second guide. Therefore, a group of 44 will be split into two groups with 22 persons in each group.

NEW ADDITION! Guided tours of the gardens: Following the “Renaissance” of Chateau & Jardin des Milandes gardens in 2016, we are delighted to add guided tours of the gardens to our portfolio. Take a step back into the early 20th century. During 30 to 40 minutes, our guide unfolds the history and restoration work to date. Throughout his restoration, Jules Vacherot combined the Renaissance, Art Nouveau and a touch of singular modernity.

*Currently, due to the Covid-19 epidemic, guided tours are prohibited. Thank you for your understanding.
