This little manor was built in 1595 by Maître Jacquet, one of the numerous solicitors who lived in St-Maurice in the sixteenth century, when the main part of the house was built. The tower, built in the early 17th century, is more recent and shows country stones.

When the seat of justice was transferred from St-Maurice-sur-Loire to Roanne in 1698, most of the solicitors left to Roanne. The Jacquet family stayed in the village and at the time of the Revolution, the first mayor of the villag was a member of the Jacquet family.
