Originally, a chaplain, housed in a building adjacent to the sanctuary, served a small hamlet of around fifteen houses. The hamlet was destroyed by lightning in 1628.
The chapel was destroyed and rebuilt a few years later. Sold in 1795 as a national asset and stripped of its furnishings and interior ornaments, the chapel was then used as a barn.
Bought back by the clergy in 1820, it was home to a new chaplain who set up a Latin class for around fifteen pupils in the adjacent premises (now demolished).
The last custodian of the sanctuary, Victor Mottard, a former page at the Court of the Kings of Piedmont-Sardinia, was buried in the chapel's small cemetery in 1895.
The Notre-Dame de Bonne-Nouvelle chapel is still open for worship, but only rarely. The chapel's patron saint's day is March 25, the day of the Annunciation.
