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.

  • The kitchen remains interesting to discover, and correct Park, but it is fast; is not of great interest, we keep not a memorable memory

  • Great Castle, the library and the large reception room are gorgeous! Not to be missed in the region.

  • Passing on the banks of the Loire, we accidentally discovered this castle. It is great and especially loaded with history, thanks to the guide we explain its history. It is furnished with period furniture. We suggest to you

  • 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).
