Chateau de Serrant, Angers

4.4
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Angers
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.

  • I went there a few years ago with some friends, we found a very interesting visit and the Castle contains a magnificent library

  • With guided tour of some rooms of the Castle, the free tour of other parts and the Park, it takes at least 2 hours to visit this beautiful home. Great pieces, tapestries and warm library.

  • This is a lovely site and the staff has done an excellent job of recreating the space. We enjoyed the grounds and access to some of the rooms. We did find it a bit discouraging when we paid for what we thought would be an English tour but the guide only spoke French. Make sure you ask for details about the tour and the communication skills of the guide.
  • Very interesting castle! In the standard visit you get to see a couple of rooms on the ground floor, a couple of rooms on the first floor and get a glimpse of the to-be-restored rooms. Nice but not a must-see. The guided tour instead was amazing. Not only you will get the historical context of the castle but you will also get to see an impressive library (among the biggest privately owned in France), working rooms, restored bedrooms and a visit to the kitchen. If you are in the area I'd definitely recommend a 2h stop to visit this
  • 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.
  • Beautiful
  • Tasted and bought local wine!! I love that castle!!!
