In the 13th century the village belonged to the Knights Templars and it came into the possession of the Order of St. John in 1298. United with the settlement in Cransaz, the commandery was headed by the preceptors of Vaud who were, until 1580, the patrons of Montbrelloz, Fribourg, and Saint-Jean de Grosset, Pays de Gex. The commandery was abolished during the Reformation. von Volborth (1981)
