History[edit]

In 1239, the land was given to the Lord of Esparon by Raymond Béranger V, Earl of Provence.

By 1490, Jacques Garde had become Lord of Saint-Marc, and twenty years later the land was passed on to Dauphine Garde, married to Bertrand de Puget.

In 1723, Saint-Marc was sold to the Meyronnets, a family of advisors in the Provence Parliament. In 1784-1785 Philippe de Meyronnet invited Lucien Bonaparte and Joseph Bonaparte to his estate.
