Welcome to... Mougins

Mougins is a small village only a 15-minute drive from the Bay of Cannes and is perfect for those not wanting to be quite so close to the bright lights of its neighbours who take centre stage further along the Riviera.  It is situated in the district of Grasse and preserves its charming Old World character despite the rapid growth seen in the region since tourism and migration became the vogue.

The range of properties available in Mougins is wide, with fantastic investment opportunities for those prepared to locate a short distance from Cannes and the other attractions along the coast. There are some incredibly beautiful houses, apartments and villas for sale in the village and immediate area. There are fine examples of French architecture spanning many generations, from detached luxury chateaux and villas standing in their own extensive grounds, old and new Provencale style houses and bungalows, to one bedroom apartments and penthouses.  A wide variety of renovation projects are also available for those wishing the challenge.

The old quarter of the town is charm personified, with wild tumbles of exotic blooms pouring out of window boxes along the maze of winding streets and terraces that define the soul of this little community.  Christian Dior lived and worked here at the height of his fame and you can almost sense the bouquet of Miss Dior perfume along Mougins’ well-trodden back streets.  There are delights to be found around almost every corner. Cobbled squares complete with baroque style fountain and quaint cafés make welcome relief as one strolls in the warm and pleasant sunshine.  The pace of life is leisurely and relaxed, stress free and peaceful.

According to local legend, the young Picasso painted murals on the walls of his hotel room in the 1930s. The enraged hotel owner is said to have made him whitewash over them, and threatened him with eviction.  It would be remiss not to mention the gastronomic delights that await visitors to Mougins.  This little piece of France has more Michelin starred restaurants than any other region in the country, with people travelling from far and wide to enjoy the experience. Mougins plays host to the annual 'International Gastronomy Festival of Mougins', or 'Les Étoiles de Mougins', an international event held every September. The most famous restaurant in Mougins is the Le Moulin de Mougins, located in a charming old mill just outside of the village and is regarded as one of the premier restaurants in the whole of France.

Estate Net France has its head office in the very heart of Mougins and is ideally situated to advise and offer the very best properties available in the region.  Our representatives can draw upon a wealth of local knowledge and will endeavour to meet your most exacting requirements.
