A simple rural house then, La Mignarde was bought in the 18th century by Gabriel Mignard, a rich Aixois confectioner. From 1760 onwards, his son, Sauveur, planted and enlarged the park, decorated it with statues and brought the waters that supply the basins. Built with Bibémus stones, the residence, on three levels, has a dining room with « Chinese » wallpaper and a large lounge with a « radassière » set in an alcove surrounded by pilasters and columns. As you take the path leading to the park, from the Pinchinats road, you will see, on the right, the façade of another house, La Gaude, which cannot be visited.
