“Nous venons de passer un magnifique séjour de 15 jours dans la maison de Virginie, Frédéric, Malo, Gwenvael et Louise! Nous avons beaucoup aimé vivre à Combourg, c’est une belle petite ville très agréable, près de tous les attraits. Leur maison est accueillante et confortable, nous nous sommes rapidement sentis comme chez-nous! De plus, notre maison était impeccable à notre retour. Ce fût un réel plaisir de les rencontrer et d’échanger avec eux! We just spent a wonderful 15-day stay in the house of Virginia, Frederick, Malo, Gwenvael and Louise! We loved our stay in Combourg. It is a very pleasant and beautiful town, near all attractions. Their home was cozy and comfortable, we felt really at home! On top of all that, our house was spotless when we came back. It was a real pleasure to meet them and house swap! Julie, Jean-François, Maélie et Raphaël ID=28294”
Virginie's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We spent a lovely two weeks in July 2011 in the home of Virginie. The house is modern and full of light and suited us perfectly. We had the use of their bikes which was great because we could bring Ailbhe (3) on the back too. There is a lovely playground only 10mins walk away. The supermarkets were very near and Virginie is part of a weekly bread round so we collected lovely fresh bread every Tuesday evening.One of her neighbours actually collected it for us the first day. Our house was in perfect nick when we returned and some of my family met them and said they were lovely people. My only regret is we couldn't meet them in person as the flights co-coincided so it wasn't possible. A great houseswap. Highly recommended. Harry and Emer”
Where is it?
We live in a small town of 5000 residents, Combourg, where the writer Chateaubriant grown up. The family's castle is still there, next to the lake Tranquille. You can find there all utilities: banks, mail, small shops, supermarkets (even an organic one).
Our neighbourhood is very quiet. It is near the city centre and shopping streets which you can reach walking less than 10 minutes and above 5 minutes walking to supermarket. Most neighbour families are similar as ours and very friendly. Children use to play all together...
Combourg is half distance between Rennes and its airport, the privateer town of Saint Malo, and its beaches, where you can go by train as Rennes, the mediaeval city of Dinan and the Mont-Saint-Michel listed on Unesco's patrimony, all above 30 mn by car. Let see www.combourg.org
Combourg, berceau du romantisme, est une petite ville de 5000 habitants, animée et avec tous les services: banques, poste, boutiques, supermarchés (et même une Biocoop).
Nous sommes près du centre-ville, à 10 mn à pied, et à 5 mn à pied de deux supermarchés. Notre voisinage est très amical, composé de familles comme la nôtre et les enfants ont l'habitude jouer tous ensemble.
Le château familial de Chateaubriand près du lac se visite. Nous sommes à mi chemin entre Rennes, Saint-Malo, Dinan et le Mont-Saint-Michel, une base idéale pour découvrir les richesses culturelles de la Bretagne et de la Basse-Normandie toute proche.
