Combourg - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Ille-et-Vilaine

Limits land of legends and maritime lands of the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, Combourg synergizes the strengths of the Armor and Argoat. The city is inseparable from the memory of the famous writer François René de Chateaubriand: "Here is revealed the romance of this child of the sea...".

Small City of Character, Green Station and the first city of the great western labeled Urban Planning Vélotouristique, Combourg is dominated by the imposing castle (XI - XV century) which still belongs to the family of the writer.
