This beautiful house was built in the sixteenth century to the eighteenth century, probably by Du Bousquet, coseigneurs Sigonce on medieval past remains: Two angled wings are connected by a dungeon and each extended by a tower, the northern façade is crowned with an arc, the Genoese all facades are 4 rows of tiles privilege of senior lords. Inside, a monumental staircase has a ceiling decorated with plasterwork, and the lintels of the rooms are decorated with paintings of the eighteenth century.
