steeped in history
Valbonne (Vallis Bona - la Bonne Vallée - the Good Valley) was founded in the 13th century with the establishment of a monastery. In the 16th century, the bishop of Grasse, Augustin De Grimaldi, decided to create a small village to repopulate the Grasse hinterland devastated by the 14th century plague. Valbonne owes its “Roman" design (perpendicular streets, organised around a main road and a central square) to defensive reasons thanks to "house-ramparts". The shape and layout of the village has hardly changed since these times.
From then until the beginning of the 20th century, the village remained focused on the local industries of vines, olive trees, and roses and jasmine intended for the perfumeries of Grasse.
At the beginning of the last century, some of the houses of the village which originally housed local workers and craftsmen, changed their function and became family houses or apartments; and finally a hotel, in the case of Les Armoiries.
