Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity


  • La Cave de Mougins

    La Cave de Mougins is the top spot to enjoy a morning or afternoon in France. Originally used for storing olive oil, the site now holds 12,000 bottles under the over 300-year-old vault. The cellar is the oldest in Mougins and only one in the Old Village. It sits on the soil of the broken-down jars where the Mougins olive oil was once placed. La Cave de Mougins is also the cellar of the legendary restaurant, Moulin de Mougins, now called L’Amandier. Former L’Amandier chef Roger Vergé reopened the cellar during his time at the restaurant.

    When you walk in, you’ll be greeted by lush plants, comfortable seating, and a view you can’t get anywhere else. Relax with a glass of local wine, cup of tea, or other delicacies that are exclusive to this stunning wine cellar and bar. Appetizers, bottles to purchase, and more are available whenever the cellar is open.
