Mougins is a beautiful village, with tiny, winding roads that seem to roll up like a “snail’s shell”.
Situated in the most spectacular countryside, close to Cannes, this typical Provencal village is the epitome of peaceful tranquility where a romantic sojourn is guaranteed. Mougins is one of the best known and sought out villages on the Côte d’Azur because it offers luxurious accommodation in a romantic setting:
During Roman times Mougins had already achieved status and strategic importance, due to its proximity to the Aurelia road. Around the 18th century this region benefited from a prospering economy and in the 19th century, thanks to its neighbor, the town of Grasse (world capital for perfume); Mougins became one of the richest centers in the region. In the ensuing years the flower tradition was almost completely forgotten, leaving in its place immense of historical homes with lush gardens and parks destined to welcome the jet-set visiting Cannes. It was around the 1950s that a more structured approach to tourism was undertaken with the village’s artistic and gourmet cuisine interest developed.
In 1969 the famous chef, Roger Vergé, founded “le Moulin de Mougins”, one of only seven restaurants in the town at the time. Nowadays there are more than fifty gourmet restaurants, proposing a wide variety of delectable, gastronomic cuisine.
Visitors’ only dilemma is to make the difficult choice between them. Many moods and palettes are offered: you can select a restaurant for a romantic candlelit dinner, or a charming hotel restaurant complete with parks, gardens, pool and exclusive services. Professionalism and quality are the common denominators for all these highly respected establishments.
Inland from the town of Cannes; only 15 minutes from the A8 motorway exit (Cannes-Mougins).
