Trept is an appealing little village with facades of exposed lime-pointed stone and a prestigious built heritage. Besides a multitude of communal furnaces, washhouses and fountains, it also conceals a few jealously-guarded secrets with the mysterious "Bon Dieu" and "Diable" erratic boulders...

The austere ramparts and square courtyard of the impressive castle of Serrières make it a fine example of military architecture from the Middle Ages.

A few kilometres away, the 15th-century chapel of Saint Didier towers above the hamlet of Cozance. Formerly the stronghold of stonemasons, Trept is now a peace haven for anglers and hikers thanks to the region's many lakes and waymarked trails. Here, nature conceals some remarkable species as well as some dry grassland areas.

Two possible explanations for the village's name: a place where three sources emerge, or a location beyond any water source. Others claim that Trept means "very small amount of land".

Bonus detail: The pediment of Trept town hall is engraved with the unusual inscription "Travail, Paix, Liberté" (Work, Peace, Liberty) rather than the traditional motto of the French Republic, "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité" (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity".
