Whether you just enjoy a walk or you are a seasoned rambler, you will be spellbound by the beauty of Chailland.
Abundant traces of its iron-working past are still to be seen, notably its “old forges”.
From the centre of the village you can stroll the streets, cross the river on the flower-bedecked bridge, and climb up to the Virgin’s Rock, from where you will have a beautiful view over the Ernée Valley.
Leaving the built-up area, the tourist route will take you alongside the Mayenne Forest to the old forges, the workers’ cottages, the old Pont de la Fonderie (Foundry Bridge) and the Château de la Forge.
