We followed the French tour, and while the guide was friendly and well spoken, she only gave superficial information - essentially the same that was provided (more professionally) in the video in Chateaubriand's bedroom. A guide interested in his work might want to explore more...More

Don’t bother wasting your money. The castle needs a lot of work done to it and the guide who could speak very good English didn’t even bother trying to speak in English. We were in a small group and half of the group were English...More

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 visited Chateau de Combourg, as you can't have a trip to France without a visit to a chateau. The entrance to the property is slightly hidden from the rest of the town, but can easily be found by following the street signs. When we...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.
