Only 10 minutes from Cannes, Mouans-Sartoux, is situated just outside Mougins which is without doubt, one of the most wonderful places to visit on the French Riviera. This superb medieval village is set amongst pines, olives and cyprus trees and surrounded by forests (the Valmasque forest covers 427 hectares).
As soon as you arrive in the village, you will be seduced by the charm of the narrow roads, bordered by colourful flowers and superb ancient houses. Picturesque door-ways with each stone carefully restored, beautifully designed window-frames… there’s delightful detail everywhere you look!
With the imprint of the past subtly conserved, the harmony of the colours and quality of light has seduced many artists and celebrities who have chosen to stay in Mougins, including Picasso (who spent the last 15 years of his life there), Christian Dior, Catherine Deneuve, Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel.. amongst others. Mougins has always had close links with the art and cultural world.
On the village outskirts, luxurious properties are hidden behind magnificent Mediterranean parks and gardens. It is not just by chance that Mougins today continues to be one of the “must-sees” on the French Riviera. While close to the coast and all its cultural events, you can also take enjoy the quieter life found inland.
