Geocache Description:

Mandrin le bandit contrebandier fût de passage à Chabreloche le 10 octobre 1754, lors de sa 5ème campagne, voyageant de Roanne à Thiers.

Une histoire qu'aiment bien les habitants de Chabreloche raconte que Mandrin se serait arrété manger à l'auberge du village. L'aubergiste lui aurait proposé de la chèvre (en patois chabre) et de l'oie (en patois l'oche). Mandrin choisit la chabre et l'oche. Ainsi le village fut-il nommé.

Les latinistes, beaucoup moins fun dans leurs hypothèses, diront plutôt que le nom signifie champs fertiles.


Mandrin, the bandit smuggler, crossing Chabreloche October 10, 1754, during his fifth campaign, traveling from Roanne to Thiers.

A story well beloved of the people of Chabreloche said that Mandrin would have stopped to eat at the village. The landlord would have suggested the goat (in dialect chabre) and goose (the oche in dialect). Chuck chooses chabre and oche. And the village was named it.

The Latinists much less fun in their assumptions, say the name means fertile fields.
