Chateau de Serrant, Angers

4.4
#4 of 9 in Sightseeing in Angers
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.

  • Exciting visit with a young smiling, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable guide who accompanied us throughout our journey. The time passes very quickly in good company... A lot of very beautiful objects, furniture and tapestries. It's a beautiful castle to visit. Outside, a food truck offers a small restoration of quality and can be asked in front of the Castle while munching... The happiness!

  • Very nice furnished Castle, which is very rare, and beautiful architecture. The tour is very interesting and rewarding, we can access among other things the library with 12000 books, the kitchen and a beautiful ebony Secretary. Guided tour for € 11 with Park access also. Possibility to eat on the spot, facing the Castle, shady spot which is very nice. Cuisine of quality, with dishes and products of the region, we feasted. Craft mirrors are a delight. I highly recommend this tour.

  • 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!

  • One of the beautiful castles of the Loire even if less known, great architecture exterior and sumptuously furnished. The guided tour is essential to appreciate everything!
