Combray was the writer Marcel Proust's name for the village of Illiers , vividly depicted by him in the opening chapters of his vast semi-autobiographical novel In Search of Lost Time.
The home of Proust's "Aunt Léonie" in the heart of the village, where he spent much of his childhood, has been transformed into a museum to the writer's memory. It provides visitors with a delightful view of 19th-century provincial life as well as of the many Proustian mementos on display.
