Inhabitants of Combourg are called Combourgeois and, more rarely Combournais, in French.
The town is part of the Patrimoine Urbain de Bretagne and labelled as one of Les Petites Cités de Caractère. Combourg is considered the "cradle of Romanticism" in French literature due to the renowned French writer François-René de Chateaubriand who spent part of his youth in his family's castle, the Château de Combourg. He describes the village and medieval castle in his Mémoirs from Beyond the Grave.
Combourg is located between the cities of Rennes and Saint-Malo in Brittany. It is approximately 386 km from Paris, 39 km from Rennes and 36 km from Saint-Malo .
