Chateau de Serrant, Angers

(240+ reviews on the web)
Castle Historic Site
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.

  • 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!!!
  • The tour is very interesting, very rich. Library: 12 000 old books are carefully aligned in the shelves of the library clutching. Kitchens: Installed in a medieval room, they surprised by their size.  The Cabinet of ebony: A masterpiece of cabinetmaking, furniture and unique as you have never seen anywhere else!

  • Very beautiful and richly furnished. The exteriors are not the height probably for lack of means
