The name comes from the Latin word " arbor " or " tree." It is difficult to locate the precise time of the beginning of the existence of this village ; certainly before Roman times, since we found very characteristic remains : buildings, pottery, which have almost disappeared since.
The old village, located on a promontory, date of feudalism in the Middle Ages : abandoned by most of its inhabitants in the nineteenth century. Then in ruins, it was in the 50s he sees rebuilt.
The old village, accessible by car or a small footpath that runs behind the town hall (insecure path), offers a breathtaking view of the Furrow of Eygues.
