The village was founded as "Moenai" in 1100. Following the tradition, the chapel Notre-Dame-du-Vallet was built after the discovery of a statue; it was rebuilt in 16th century and again in 1862. The old village of Ternant, mentioned for the first time in 1100, was linked to Monnai.

In 2005, the "Carrefour des Cultures", an international gathering of the Hospitality Club of about 450 people, happened for the first time. Locals and members of hospitality exchange networks from all around the world came to meet for five days.
