LE CHENE TREMBLANT OK.jpg
  • Many place names are based on the names of trees. These names are sometimes found in the singular, where they often describe a tree that marked the boundary of a plot of land, a parish or a crossroads, etc. Here, this place name marks the boundary between the communes of Vigeant and Usson-du-Poitou.
    In the Poitou region, the oak is also known as the chagne, as can be found in several place names in the commune of Usson-du-Poitou: Les Chagneroux, La Chagneraie and even Chasseneuil, “the oak glade”.
    This seems to be an ancient place name since it was already in existence when the Napoleonic Land Register was drawn up. As for the trembling oak, the explanation for this description will no doubt remain a mystery…
    Today, a beautiful hundred-year-old pedunculate oak stands beside the footpath.

    This circuit is one of 7 circuits known collectively as "Le Chêne Tremblant", located in the Usson-du-Poitou, L'Isle Jourdain and Le Vigeant area.
