MOUGINS: The Medieval 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 centers 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
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
