Things to see and do

Built in the nineteenth century, the church of Saint-Pierre houses in its bosom an eighteenth century bell and a painting of the nineteenth, The Dream of Saint Joseph, both classified as Historical Monuments as objects.

While walking in the town, you can also admire the castle of Changé, walk the paths of the park des Ondines or discover the remains of the old priory. Built in the eleventh century, the latter was replaced by a castle that now houses the town hall of Changé.

To enjoy sunny days, head to the water bodies of Rochefort and Port, which offer beautiful family walks or the chestnut. The hills of Barberie also worth a detour during your stay in the region.

The Laval golf course, located on the town of Changé, is an opportunity to tease the little white ball and make a pleasant journey in the countryside.
