Chosen for The Times '50 Best villas in the Med' it is not surprising that Villa Mougins was featured in the 'Best for luxury' category. It is a stylish and luxurious villa just 2 miles from historic Mougins; the ultimate in contemporary living, set in huge private grounds within the Valmasque Park. Amazing artwork adorns the walls and the enormous heated pool is a work of art in itself - a miroir d'eau designed to reflect the nature surrounding it. The interiors are designed by renowned interior architect Christian Liaigre. Cool white walls are contrasted by the verdant green of the garden as seen through the many glass panels and doors, creating a luminosity which Picasso himself would have relished! It is not just pretty, but practical too; air-conditioning, underfloor heating, Wi-Fi, video entry, alarm, pool heating and a Jacuzzi, plus of course all the latest appliances.
Nearby Mougins offers medieval buildings, quaint, narrow side streets and squares full of cafes and restaurants bustling with life. There is a path from the villa leading directly into the Valmasque National Park which offers lots of hiking and cycling trails. Less than 1km from the villa is the renowned Mougins Golf and Country Club. A 20 minute drive inland takes you to Grasse, perfume capital, and the numerous medieval villages perched high in the hills above the Riviera which offer some superb views of the region. The delights of Cannes and the beach are just 6 miles away, Antibes old port is 8 miles, and if you want to do a spot of shopping, the newly built, avant-garde Polygone Shopping Centre in Cagnes-sur-Mer is only 12 miles.
8000 square metres of enclosed grounds, mostly flat and laid to lawn, planted with trees and shrubs. 25m x 5m heated pool (all one depth of 1.20m), Jacuzzi. Huge covered terrace with outdoor seating and dining. Direct access to walking & cycling paths in surrounding Valmasque National Park woodland.
Cannes, the 'Jewel' in the crown of the 'Côte d'Azur' since the dawn of time, focal point for festivals throughout the world and a cultural melting pot. The city is very well located to choose as a destination for a vacation apartment rental in Cannes in order to discover the french riviera. You could not dream of a place more like paradise than Cannes. A town whose eclectic scenery has amazed even the most powerful. The Romans chose it as a place in which to settle. Also, the English chancellor, Lord Brougham, Napoleon and Cocteau and many others have all fallen in love with this vibrant, colorful town and its peaceful way of life.
The closest thing to an 'old town' is 'Le Suquet' overlooking the west end of the port. The 12th-century Tour de Mt. Chevalier, ramparts and 12th-16th-century church Notre-Dame-de-l'Espérance give a touch of medieval flavor to the city. Le Suquet area has narrow streets climbing up and around the hill, with a fine view from the top. Standing on the ancient rampart wall in front of the church, you can see east across the city, the port and the bay to the Cap de la Croisette, and to the west across the Gulf of La Napoule to the Massif de l'Estérel mountains.
