The bakery on the ground floor holds a bunch of load Vault. Before the farm remains a walled garden and a trough. The Cassini map [1750] mentions a hamlet at a place called Hugons. This farm is represented on the cadastre of 1836 according to an L-shaped plan which it is currently only a long building covered with a roof of slate from the quarries of the Mont Signon (Haute-Loire). The bakery, built in sections of columnar basalt extracted near the farm, leans against the barn. The former logis, la bergerie, the trough and covered well are ruined.
