It has been the property of Parfums Christian Dior since and is not open to the public. From the 15th century to the beginning of the 19th century, the site was described in various ways: However, it was from that the domain finally took shape, when Henri-Emmanuel Poulle — , lawyer, first president of the Court of Aix-en-Provence and deputy of the Var region , from an old family of Montauroux , became owner of the "domain of La Colle" and took the neighbouring hamlet's name to become the "domain de La Colle Noire".
In Henri-Emmanuel Poulle created a staging post on the estate which later on would serve as the base for the future chateau. Over time, through various acquisitions, the estate reached an area of more than hectares, becoming a vast agricultural operation, composed mainly of plowing fields, pastures, vines and muriers. In , at the age of 66, Henri-Emmanuel Poulle decided to build a residence for his retirement. The construction lasted three years, from to The facade with its two emblematic towers that dominate the valley, dates from that time.

It was also during this period that H-E. Poulle had a chapel dedicated to St Anne, in reference to his daughter Anne-Victoire. Due to the loss of its land title, it could not be sold as a national asset under the French Revolution and was thus protected from vandalism during the revolution. It passed into the heritage of H-E. Poulle and was transmitted to Christian Dior who offered it to the commune of Montauroux in The chapel was built in by the White Penitents, and still has today the wooden painted decor which adorns the walls as well as the vault.
Anne-Victoire was very pious and obtained permission from the Bishop of Frejus to allow the priest of Montauroux to say mass in the chapel St Anne every Sunday except for Christmas, Easter and other festivals.
The inhabitants of the neighborhood became accustomed to hearing Mass at La Colle Noire. The St Anne chapel is still consecrated today. Head of office at the Ministry of Justice in Paris, he showed little interest in the property located in the remote Var region where his family originated.
The property was ceded to an industrialist named Fayolle, whose widow resold the estate in to Pierre Grosselin. On October 25, , the property, with an area of 50 hectares, comprising a noble house, agricultural buildings and land cultivated mainly in vines and flowers, was bought by Christian Dior.

Famous and recognized — his house of couture was created in and his house of perfumes in — Christian Dior acquired this emblematic property in a region that he knew well. Indeed, his father, a widow since , lived close by in the plain of Callian with his young sister Catherine who was the inspiration for the perfume Miss Dior ,  "And then Miss Dior was born.
She was born from those evenings of Provence crossed by fireflies where the green jasmine serves as a counter-song to the melody of the night and the earth". It was therefore in the Provence dear to his heart, in the inaccessible Var inland that Christian Dior would develop his house, far from Paris and 30 Avenue Montaigne, home of his couture house. Of the house, I can not say much because I'm restoring it.
