Make a villa in Mougins your home away from home

Located in the heights above Cannes and known as the village where Picasso spent the last 12 years of his life, Mougins villas spirit guests away from the crazy bustle of Cannes' seafront, and tuck them into a quiet, forested cocoon of Provencal life. Accommodation in Mougins offers an ideal base for exploring the foothills of the Alps, and the southern Alps themselves – what better place to return to than a village where the main industry was the growing of flowers for perfume? With a central location for so many activities, guests can really get the balance right when staying here.

Mougins rentals mostly come with access to a pool, air-conditioning, and fully equipped kitchens, and are conveniently located for lovers of horse riding, golfing and fishing. Gardens are also common, as is onsite parking – and hiring a car is a great way to explore. With a diverse range of apartments, farmhouses, villas and cottages to choose from, properties can also welcome parties of any size.

Things to do

Outdoor pursuits: Ideally positioned for both the mountains and sea, Mougins apartments allow guests to experience the activities of both, even in the same day with a bit of driving. Hiking and biking opportunities are easy to find nearby.

Beaches: The closest beaches to Mougins holiday rentals are those at Cannes, which are widely regarded as some of the most exclusive in the world. If Cannes' sand is a little too pompous or hectic, however, there are other sandy beach options a few miles to the northeast at Antibes and Juan-les-Pins, where HomeAway offers a further selection of holiday homes. At the latter, visitors can expect to find plenty of picturesque views, particularly as the sun sets – simply head to one of the beachside, high-class restaurants, and enjoy a night of delicious French cuisine.

Nightlife: Mougins itself is well known for its restaurants, with a history of eateries starring Michelin-starred chefs such as Roger Verge and Alain Ducasse. The most famous is L'Amandier, currently situated in an old ecclesiastical court house. Dining out in Mougins can be absolutely amazing, but be prepared for the bill.

Shopping: Cannes' shopping opportunities are famous for being the preserve of the famous – because they're all typically rich! There are numerous exclusive boutiques to cater to the tastes of such clientele, but they're still wonderful to browse, if not buy. This is not a place to pick up traditional souvenirs, however; more a 'pick up a shell/pebble from the beach' kind of place.

Culture: In keeping with Mougins' propensity for food, every September sees the village open up their Les Étoiles de Mougins, an international gastronomy festival with keen attendance by famous chefs. For art lovers, Picasso's influence can be felt at the recently opened Museum of Classic Art at Mougins.

Weather in Mougins

It's often surprising to learn how mild the summers are, when it's so easy to expect the Mediterranean to be scorching hot. The highest daytime temperatures rarely exceed 30°C, while winters are mild and wetter, with daytime highs in the teens and more rain falling, chiefly in October and November. A typical year sees over 300 days of sunshine, so bring plenty of sunscreen.

Travel to Mougins

Cannes does have its own airport, but only for private charters for movie stars and the like... The best bet for common mortals is to fly in to Nice Cote d'Azur Airport, which is just 15 miles from Mougins. Buses do serve the area, but it's far more preferable to hire a car and drive in. Who would want to miss driving through James Bond country? For those who like a road trip, driving from the UK can be done in a couple of days. If travelling by train is preferred, London to Nice is possible in nine hours or so with the right connections.

The pool was amazing and there is plenty of seating area. The owner Natalie is a delightful lady and extremely helpful and knowledgable about the local area. We would recommend staying here.

The location of the villa is fantastic within easy reach of Nice airport (less than 30 mins), Cannes and Mougins old village only a few minutes by car. The villa is immaculate inside and out; the outdoor living areas are spectacular and make the villa fabulous for entertaining. My husband particularly liked the outdoor professional kitchen! We had 2 very young children with us and the villa worked perfectly with air conditioned bedrooms, a heated pool with security cover, garden and plenty of space. We would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone and hope to travel back ourselves.
