The mansion house
Via the entrance porch, through the first courtyard under a wooden ceiling, a set of rooms dating from the 15th century, one of which is vaulted. A courtyard forming a lightwell housing facades featuring mullioned windows and fluted pilasters, cornices and sculpted modillions, resembling the 17th century facades of Arles. The vestibule also houses the main stairway, lined with dressed stone balusters, going up to flats on the first floor. At the end, an enclosed garden closes the view.
The entrance porch opens into the section dating from the 15th century. One room has a wooden ceiling with traces of colours; a vaulted room, followed by a room overlooking the enclosed courtyard. Another two rooms open on to the barn and the courtyard. Opposite, the main stairway goes up from the vestibule, leading to the first floor. A utility room. Two courtyards under ceilings, a courtyard forming a lightwell and an enclosed garden.
This level is divided into four flats. The first with a lounge, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom; the second, with a lounge, a dining room, a bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom; the third, with a lounge, a kitchen, a bedroom, a study and a shower room; the fourth, with a lounge, a bedroom and a kitchen.

This is probably one of the town’s most beautiful mansion houses, abounding in history with untouched architecture and real vestiges that are but waiting to be enhanced. These premises are classified in their entirety on the French Supplementary Historic Monument List. They offer great possibilities as regards rehabilitation and tax-deductible investment.
