Chateau de Serrant, Saint-Georges-sur-Loire

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.

  • Nice castle that is better to visit with the guide, only a few rooms are accessible free visit. The passionate guide opens the beautiful library and the fabulous ebony cabinet to you, among others.

  • Here is a castle that seen from the outside does not seem extraordinary but as soon as you are inside it is a real journey into the past life and presents owners as it is still inhabited, furnished and neat.

  • Very nice place and we were hosted for a lovely wedding in shared bedrooms that were really good.
  • 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.
