We are a mixed English/French family. We were lucky enough to be given this piece of land, which belonged to my wife's family, who are from Mougins. She grew up in Mougins and her family are still here, which means they are close by in case of any problems.
Why Nathalie chose Mougins
It took us over 10 years to design and build the house, and many 'Grand Design' moments. We do also live here sporadically, but let it out for selected weeks. It is a modern contemporary villa, with open plan living that everyone who goes there loves. It is tucked away in forest, yet so close to amenities, the coast and many great holiday places.
What makes this villa unique
Having designed and built the house, it is the way we wanted a villa. Private & secluded, stunning views, alfresco living, great pool and safe for children & family. There are many lovely villas in Mougins, but we wouldn't swop..
