Tréhet is a commune of the Loir-et-Cher department in central France.

Situated on the left bank of the Loir close to the Sarthe département communes of La Chartre sur le Loir and Ruillé sur Loir, and traversed by the Niclos stream, the name derives from Latin trajectus (crossing). Its small partly Romanesque church dedicated to the B.V.M.has recently been restored revealing early wall paintings (the subject is the martyrdom of St. Lawrence). The population is approximately 120.
