  • Very beautiful castle, with interesting anecdotes on Chateaubriand. What a shame to be badly received by the staff! The visit, while interesting, is a bit playful; to avoid with young children. Lack of time to visit the Park after the visit.

  • Visit made in September 2016 (with a friendly guide), interesting and who reminded me the texts of Chateaubriand read at school while giving to read others. We visit that part of the Castle but it is already good and worth as much to the comments of the guide parts views. Beware, the guided tour is the only thing to do (the Park has very little interest and we made the turn in a few minutes), there are few, times are changing and they do not accept the latecomers so call ahead for exact times.

  • We visited the castle during the holidays of the 2017 Toussaint just until the site closed for several months. Our group was formed of three adults and two children (8 and 6 years). The entrance fee includes the guided tour found us it reasonable for a private site. The castle is located in a large park in which it is possible to walk. The guide was a great young smiling woman who knew how brilliantly animate the discovery of places. She recounted the history of the site by peppering his narrative of stories about the life of Chateaubriand, including by referring to his works (especially memoirs from beyond the grave). We have discovered different venues as well as the famous writer's room at the top of the ramparts in a tower isolated (as well as a certain Mummy). From there, we have lovely views of the village and its Lake. The visit lasted about an hour, which was enough because we are not standing during this time. One small regret: a large part of the castle is inaccessible to the visit because always inhabited. But the Combourg Castle is worth the trip!

  • 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 visited, we were given a time for the tour of the Chateau (it is not possible to wander around the Chateau without a tour). To get to the start of the tour there were steps that had to be climbed, so the building is not accessible by wheelchair or buggy. The tour was in french, but we were given a small booklet to read so that we would not miss out on any of the facts mentioned in the tour. There is some very interesting history in the property. We didn't explore the gardens much, as it is described as an English park. We can do that at home! The Chateau de Combourg is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • Beautifully restored medieval castle. Well maintained grounds. The guided English tour was very interesting. Town of Combourg and the castle's lake are lovely to visit, too!
  • Very interesting and informative tour, though the English translation is missing a lot of the jokes the tour guide made.
  • Lovely grounds. Beautiful setting.
  • Visited here in 2005. Impressive castle with great views over countryside.
