MOUGINS: The Mediaeval fortified village of Mougins with its environment of pines, olives and cyprus trees and truly magnificent views, lies between Cannes and Grasse and just 3 km north of the A8 motorway. This makes access to all centres on the Cote d'Azur, and especially the airport very easy. It is just 20 minutes from Nice Airport. The Valmasque forest which surrounds it is 430 hectares in extent and ensures the quality of life and the environment that makes property in this area some of the most desired in France. It is set approximately 250 to 300m above the Mediterranean so the views looking down across the Baie de Cannes to the sea from one's villa or luxury apartment in Mougins are panoramic! World class! Beyond Cannes and appearing to float dreamily in the Bay are the twin historic Iles de Lerins, and looking northward the Perfume Capital of Grasse with the often snowy Alps behind it. The ancient village is seductive and charming with narrow cobbled pedestrian passages, wonderfully coloured floral displays at all times of the year, superb ancient houses and villas, picturesque doorways and window-frames, and delightful touches everywhere one looks. With the character and history of the area carefully and sensitively preserved, the famous quality of light which has captivated so many famous artists for generations is still appreciated and remains inspirational for artists today. There are more than 20 working, living artist galleries in Mougins, and the list of artists past is impressive, and includes such names as Picasso who lived here for 15 years, Jean Cocteau, Winston Churchill who painted the 12th century chapel at the heart off the village, and many others. Celebrities past and present appreciate Mougins too - but the roll-call of famous names is too long to include here. Its links to the worlds of art, culture and the influential people who have shaped our world are everywhere. In the hills and valleys surrounding the Old Town are luxurious properties set into the most wonderful Mediterranean gardens, and villas with views and surrounds to take ones breath away. Although close and very accessible to Cannes, Antibes, Juan les Pins and Nice, Mougins itself is set in its own quiet and private world apart, and its for that reason primarily that luxury property is so sought after here. It has two major golf courses, more than 40 world class restaurants including the Moulin de Mougins, and famous automobile and photography museums to add to the list of galleries and other assets already mentioned.
