The history of the domain goes back to at least 1652, when it was owned by the Chambellan family. This family also owned the property in 1777 when a daughter from the place married Louis Boisson and in this way connected the Boisson family with the property. The Boissons also worked as blacksmiths in the town and from this got the nickname "Caboche" (derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails). This name was consequently chosen for the property (Domaine Père Caboche).

As Emelie's Jean-Pierre Boisson (Mayor 2001-2014)  often was away from home, most of the every days desicions for several years has been in the hands of his daughter Emilie who is now responsible for the domain.
In 2012 Emilie married Vincent Durieu
