Chateau de Serrant, Angers
(4.4/5 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.

  • With a bit of the proximity of Brissac is yet a step not to miss. Very harmonious, if you stay for a while in the Court you will be more captivated by its beauty; apartments, Chapel, library, are still well furnished and everything has an interest, and more guides are enthusiastic, you won't make the time fly!

  • Absolutely to do this tour. There are wonders in this castle. The (young) guide was exciting. A beautiful library and an unusual ebony firm.

  • Castle of which the furniture is original and very well preserved. The guide made us share his passion for this castle from the cellar to the attic. Do if you are in the corner

  • 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).
