Private mansion

Hôtel de Grimaldi Régusse The 17th-century Hôtel de Grimaldi-Régusse was built in 1680 for Charles de Grimaldi-Régusse, President of Parliament.

It is situated at 26 Rue de l’Opéra, Aix-en-Provence.

In the same period, the frontage was redesigned by the Aix architect Laurent Vallon.

Above the mansion's wooden door are small carved lions on either side of a coat of arms. The door itself is decorated with leaves as well as geometric shapes which stand out in relief around the œil-de-bœuf window surmounted by a lively mask.

On the ground floor, giving on to the garden, is a drawing room with the ceiling painted by Sébastien Barras (an assembly of the gods), and a boudoir with a cupola stuccoed and painted with bold perspectives.

The building is listed in the Mérimée French Architectural Heritage database of the Ministry of Culture and Communication.
