The Hôtel Raousset-Boulbon (a.k.a. Hôtel Fauris de Saint-Vincens) is a listed hôtel particulier in Aix-en-Provence.



It is located at number 14 on the Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence.


It was built in 1660 for Honoré de Rascas, Lord of Le Cannet and Advisor to the Parliament of Aix-en-Provence.

It was purchased by Antoine de Fauris in 1739. It later became the private residence of his son, Jules-François-Paul Fauris de Saint-Vincens (1718-1798), who served as the President à mortier of the Parliament of Aix-en-Provence in 1746. 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 first floor, there is another big lounge, another bedroom and another library, all looking out to the garden. There is also a second floor.
