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

With limited land and land maritime legends 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 and Green Station, Combourg is dominated by the imposing medieval castle (XI - 15th century) which still belongs to the family of the writer.
