Chateau de Serrant, Angers

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
The Chateau de Serrant is a fortress of knowledge with 12,000 books stashed away in its library. The great Bonaparte himself stopped to visit this renaissance home. The then owners prepared a room for the conqueror, but unfortunately he had battles to fight and only stayed two hours. The same family that hosted Bonaparte still owns the chateau and allows you to view Napoleon’s unused room. After you 've toured the rooms, take a look at the vaulted ceilings in the former kitchens. They are an exceptional example of extravagant interior design from the renaissance architectural period.

  • Very nice tour, in a magnificent Castle still has his furniture! A big congratulations to the guide for its dynamism and its knowledge. Only shadow the cold but of course complicated to heat such a surface :-)

  • Very beautiful castle, well maintained, with a guide that is very interested in what he does and is. We were thrilled with our visit: interiors as external worth.

  • This castle is not very known but merit really to be visited, and especially in the guided tour because it allows access to the library which is amazing! the guide is really very interesting, and knows the castle on the tips of the fingers. The Park (or rather autour wood) is beautiful and natural. Absolutely recommended!

  • Terrific, and go for the guided tour, as you see more, including the it's-got-to-be-seen-to-be-believed ebony cabinet. What a place. If it was good enough for HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother in May 1981 to stay for three nights, you know it is worth a visit.
  • Tasted and bought local wine!! I love that castle!!!
  • Nice Château
  • Magnificent Castle guided tour. A kitchen and a beautiful library (the library is classified heritage).
