Serrant is home to a magnificent castle which is emblematic of Renaissance-style architecture. Its exterior boasts a schist and tufa façade, two towers crowned with domes and an imposing moat. The interior is just as attractive, with kitchens which look ready to spring back to life, a beautiful staircase with a sculpted ceiling, a well-stocked library with some 12,000 volumes, tapestries and works of art – this, the westernmost of the castles of the Loire, certainly lives up to its promises. Add to this one of the finest collections of furniture in France, including a famous Henri IV ebony cabinet, and you won’t be disappointed. The castle organises themed visits which are particularly informative, as well as night-time visits which highlight the elegance of the château, and other events and activities. In other words, there’s everything you need here for an enjoyable visit full of historic interest.
