15 kms west of Angers, this is probably one of the best furnished Chateaus in Angers. Originally built on the lines of a medieval fortress, its 14th Century owners, the Brie family, undertook the task of modernizing the interiors.
The exquisite furnishings and fabulous collections of paintings, tapestries and books is not something that you come across very often.Admire the:
- Sculpted ceiling.
- The grand staircase leading to the library upstairs.
- Antique furniture such as the Henry IV ebony cabinet.
The castle organizes activities such as themed visits, night visits etc. from time to time, to let visitors feel the true essence of the history of the castle.
Boasting a schist and tufa façade, the castle is a true blue example of Renaissance French architecture, where lavatories are concealed within closets and bathrooms hidden behind cupboards!

At the Chateau de Serrant, it was offered a guided tour 6 Euros more for me and my wife, but the tour was only in French. We took it anyway, and when we asked the tour guide to give a little bit of information I the end in English (he demonstrated that he knew basic English) he simple responded that the tour was in French and that he will not speak another language, since we are in France. It was a super rude treatment, at a place that is supposed to be for tourists. We simple went back and asked for our money. And left. So, unless you are French or speak fluently, this chateau is NOT for you. Foreigners not welcomed.
Not sure why it justifies three Michelin stars. Good views but fairly dull interior. Didn't do the first floor though.
Loved it. A piece of family history is always refreshing. Staff was kind but the guided tour is in French.
Beautifully furnished and top library. Guided visit is preferable.
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
