The building that now is home to Villa Florentine was known as the "Maison de la Providence" in 1707, at which time it became home to a congregation of Trinitarians. The purpose of the institution, which was founded by Louise-Blanche Therese de Ballon, was to provide young girls with sufficient an education so that they could earn their own income when they turned twenty.
