It almost sounds unreal, the magic word; “French Riviera”, but it’s not. This wonderful house is located in the very centre of it all, in a small typical French village, called Mougins. What about the following examples of distance from our house to wonderful places: 5 minutes to Cannes (and the Mediterranean), 20 minutes to Antibes, 25 minutes to Nice, 35 minutes to Monaco / Monte Carlo, 45 minutes to Italy (3 hours to the city Milan) , and 60 minutes to St. Tropez. And if this isn’t enough, you can always ad places in between such as St Maxim, Aix, Frejus, Vence, San Remo, Menton, St Paul de Vence, Marseille and many many more…
Mougins, the famous ”gourmet village”, is actually the heart of Provence, as a suburb to the famous city Cannes, most known for its yearly Film festival and great “jet set” shopping.
Our house, a typical French old stone house, has been totally, but carefully renovated in 2012 and 2013. We have preserved the original stile but at the same time made something brand new and very comfortable. The house has the space of almost 300 square meters. It’s placed on a typical French “slanting” piece of land and the garden is 3000 square meters, filled with fruit-, olive- and lemon-trees.
The house is in two different etages (floors). The entrée level includes a lounge, kitchen, living room, dining room, library, an office and a guest toilet. At this level, you will also find two master bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and toilet, and a separate and practical laundry room.
Upstairs you will find the guest department. This sleeping area includes two bedrooms, a bathroom and toilet, one small and one big walk in closet. The master bedroom upstairs has a beautiful balcony. In total, there are 4 bedrooms with 8 beds.
The outdoor pool includes 70 000 liters of water and the size is approximately 10 by 4 meters. The depth is 1,8 meters and it also includes a built in “plage” with 30 cm depth. The water is kept warm by the sun and rise to above 30 degrees Celsius in the summer.
The pool is automatic cleaned by the sand filter and timer functions, and our pool maintenance guys come every week. The pool is unbelievable luxury in the summer and a must when the temperature in the air excide 30 degrees Celsius in the shadow. On the pool area you find sun beds, several tables and chairs and of course big parasols.
The garden is a well-kept wild growing wonderful place which includes several exciting and useful trees and plants. Among others, you find orange trees, lime trees, lots of olive trees, rosemary hedges, thyme bushes, big trees with bay leafs, plum, grapes, figs and much more.
Our more than 100 square meters terrace between the house and the pool is simply wonderful, and it works as an extra room in most of the year. Besides stools, hammocks and plants, there is a huge table for 8 – 10 people, a modern weber barbeque and an unbelievably beautiful view.
A wifi network connected to our Internet broadband keeps you connected to the world.
The kitchen is my favorite room. Here you find everything you can possibly ask for and even more. Everything is in order when it comes to preparing those wonderful French gourmet dinners. The kitchen includes all staple commodities that you need and you find a brand new, big refrigerator for all the rosé wine you can possibly drink.
The four bedrooms are all light and enjoyable. Three of them include big sized double beds (king size) and the fourth have two separate beds. Most of the rooms have fans to get the pleasant breeze when it’s time to sleep. The house is also equipped with air-condition. The rooms also have mosquito nets to keep the small guys outside.
You find three bathrooms (including shower or bathtub) and four toilettes in the house.

There are more than 20 golf courses in just some 20 kilometers distance from the house. And if you want to get the cultural doze filled, you have all the “big ones” around the corner. Chagall, Matisse, Leger, Picasso, Renoir and many more… they all lived in this area and they all have their own museum in the neighborhood.
When it comes to cooling down, the choice is yours. Ether you can enjoy our own pool below the terrace together with a glass of rosé wine, or you can go down to the sea, trying out some of the activities or just look at all the nice and famous people lying on the beach.
The weather on the “Cote d’Azur” is always nice… you can expect more than 320 days of sun and blue sky every day, and it’s never too hot, due to the nice breeze from the Mediterranean.
Mougins is most famous for its restaurants and art galleries. More than twenty of the best restaurants in Mougins are in one way or the other well known in the southern France and most of them are found in the “Guide Michelin”. People from all over the Riviera are coming here to eat and the small village is more than lively in the evenings.

About Christer Udd
We are a Swedish family who lives in Stockholm and we have been the owner of a vacation home in Mougins for more than 13 years now. As non smokers, we prefer that you enjoy the cigar together with the French Cognac outside on the terrace. We do not have any pets ether, due to the respect of people who suffer from allergy.
A maid can come and clean the house as often as you want for a small sum of euro. She will also take care of the cleaning on your departure day.
