About Mougins

Just a few kilometres from Cannes, medieval Mougins is a haven for artists — it was the long-time home of Picasso — and boasts a number of Michelin-starred restaurants. Brilliant for artsy travellers, foodies and history buffs, the town also has a varied selection of accommodation options. Whether you’re dreaming of a cosy B&B for a couples’ escape or a luxurious boutique hotel, our pick of the best places to stay in Mougins has something for everyone.

A labyrinthine network of cobbled streets, Mougins’ historic centre is alive with trendy galleries, gorgeous gardens, gourmet eateries and charming little bars. Culture aficionados will adore the Photography Museum, the Museum of Classical Art — housing everything from Egyptian coffins to the paintings of Picasso — and bustling evening events at the Eco Parc Mougins. The octagonal Chapel Saint-Bartholomew is wonderfully unusual, whilst the Chapel Notre-Dame-de-Vie sits on the site of an ancient temple — also well worth visiting. Active adventurers should look to the Parc Naturel de la Valmasque.

Admire dramatic views of the Bay de Cannes from the table d'orientation, or pick a perch at top restaurants such as La Place de Mougins or L’Amandier. The best places to stay in Mougins fill up particularly fast during the Mougins Festival of Gastronomy each June — and for the Cannes Film Festival, of course!
