Private mansion

This private mansion belongs to the De Gassier family.

It is situated at 10 Rue Mignet – 2 Rue de Suffren in Aix-en-Provence.

This annexe to Collège des Prêcheurs boasts a Regency door, adorned with a faun's head crowned with a basket of fruit.

Then, between the two windows is a panel, unique in Aix-en-Provence, composed of bands of plasterwork in Pompeian style that could be by Cauvet, decorator to the Count of Provence, the brother of Louis XVI.

In the garden of the mansion is a fountain with a deep basin and a fluted column, at the base of which the water flows from a gargoyle.

An 18th-century pergola in the form of a pavilion enhances the garden terrace.
