    On the death of the artist's mother, the property was sold to Louis Granel. His daughter married Frederick Corsy, professor at the Faculty of Medicine of Marseille. In 1956, their son sold the property to the city of Aix en Provence, reserving the usufruct until his death in 2002.

    Today
    The park entrance, marked by a monumental gate opens onto a path lined with towering plane trees leading to the mansion.

    Not to be missed the typical 18th century magnificent mansion of the Jas de Bouffan. Reservation at the Office of Tourism of Aix en Provence (Mansion closed in 2017).
