Autumn break

Chateau de Combourg
Next week we have our four-day trip to eastern Brittany. We are staying at beautiful gites near Combourg and visiting the famous chateau in the town where the writer Chateaubriand (his cook at the London embassy in the 1820s produced the steak of that name) passed his formative years. Our other excursions will be to Fougères, which has one of the best castles in Europe, the cathedral at Dol-de-Bretagne, megalithic sites and places significant in Brittany's history. There will also be an option to visit Mont-St-Michel. Looking forward to it!
