Roquefort les Pins, coat of arms
Roquefort was originally a "castrum", then became a "seigneury", and was classified as a municipality in 1790. However Roquefort-les-Pins has never been a village.

It consists of a series of hamlets made up of recently built homes, ocated in an area near Grasse, and concealed in the midst of a pine forest.

Roquefort les Pins, town hall
Notre Dame is the oldest part, Le Plan is the commercial and administrative centre, Le Colombier is the residential district and Les Terres Blanches is a more rural areal.

In other words, at Roquefort-les-pins, there is something for everybody: schools, shops, sports centres and tennis courts, nurseries, and retirement homes, an antique dealer, vet, garden centre and osteopath, etc.
