"Le Rocher Tremblant"

at Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val
might easily also be called The Dinosaur Rock:

This is what the 'rocking-stone' looks like today - on a wooded slope.

Below is an old postcard from a photo taken early in the 20th century
(if not before) showing the village of Saint-Antonin before it spread
beyond the limit of the old defensive walls.  Very little woodland is apparent
in the postcard view, but now much of the countryside is (naturally) forested
as a result of agricultural and population decline,
and the abandonment of marginal land.
