Later, his grandson, Alexandre de Fauris de Saint-Vincens (1750-1815), who served as President a mortier of the Parliament of Aix-en-Provence in 1782 and later as Mayor of Aix-en-Provence from 1808 to 1809, lived there too.

On the ground floor, there is a vestibule, a big lounge looking out to a private garden, a bedroom and a library, as well as two additional rooms which are rented out to the Société Générale, a French bank. On the first floor, there is another big lounge, another bedroom and another library, all looking out to the garden. There is also a second floor.
