“Is this the property of Perrier LaPadite?”
Hans Landa

LaPadite's farm is the house of the LaPadite family and a dairy farm. Is was located in Nancy, France.


LaPadite's farm is a dairy farm. It consists of a house, some crop fields and (unseen) cow stables. The house is an old timber dwelling with tiled roof.


Chapter One Once upon a time... in Nazi-occupied FranceEdit

After the German invasion of France, the Dreyfuses took refuge inside Perrier LaPadite's house, where they hid for at least one year. The Germans searched LaPadite's house for the Dreyfuses in 1940, but couldn't find them, so they left.

In 1941, the German administration of France decides to send Standartenführer Hans Landa to LaPadite's farm in an attempt to find the Dreyfuses.


  • In original script, the farm is located in the region of Nancy. In the film it's not specified where in France is the farm located.
  • The cow stables are nowhere to be seen, and the region around the farm is surrounded by woods and grain fields, with no other houses seen in close proximity, an odd location for a cow farm.

Behind the scenesEdit

The inside of the farm, as well as the La Louisiane interior, were created in the studio. The shots for the exterior of the farm, however, were shot in Sebnitz, Germany, near the border with the Czech Republic.[1][2]

The interior of the house was designed to look similar to the town setting in Once Upon a Time in the West.[3]

The cows were a CGI feature added as the real cows intended for this scene were late to arrive.
