My guide describes this château as 'perfectly restored and decorated'. This is patently not the case It was the home of Chateaubriand but unless you are a fan of his, this doesn't make the château any more attractive. It is set in a large garden...More

We thought we'd see a medieval castle but got a tour of the opulent lifestyle of the 19th Century elite... But it is still worth seeing if in Chombourg.

We went on the English tour of the chateau during our stay in Combourg. Our tour guide was excellent and offered very interesting insights to the history of the chateau and area. If in the area I would recommend a tour.

Don't bring your kids on the guided tour! They will be bored within 5 minutes and you'll spent the rest of the tour trying to keep them quiet while the guide gives you the evil eye! Also, the castle was empty for about a 100...More
