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.
