Mougins is the ideal getaway for adventurers who want to surround themselves in French history and culture. The village’s impressive culinary history makes for delicious date nights, and tours within the charming walled city known as the Old Village. If you’re looking for a warm day in the sun, head down to Plage du Ponteil to catch some rays and snorkel through crystal clear waters. But if the glamour of the south of France is what intrigues you, come during the Cannes Film Festival to rub shoulders with entertainment’s elite and bask in the beauty that is the French Riviera.
Settled in the center of the Old Village, this restaurant formerly housed the courthouse of the Monks of Saint Honorat in the Middle Ages. More recently, it was managed by renowned chefs Roger Vergé and Alain Ducasse.
For a day of history, architecture, and landscape, visit Notre Dame de Vie Chapel. The site is home to Picasso’s former estate and the monumental tomb of the Guinness family. Go for the history; stay for the beauty.
Art enthusiasts and history buffs alike will enjoy a visit to the Classical Art Museum. On display are pieces from ancient, neoclassical, modern, and contemporary influence, all in a renovated medieval home-turned-museum.
You’re in wine country; time to explore the flavors of French wine. There are a number of vineyard tours available near Mougins that will show you underground cellars and stunning architecture. End with a tasting.
Play a round of golf at the country club that the Cannes Open called home for 14 years. The course was built in 1923 and sits on more than 148 protected and natural acres. Enjoy exquisite landscape and architecture while you golf.
Wander through this protected and natural park area, which is home to wildlife and indigenous plants. Horseback riding, hiking, and running are just a few fan favorites at the park.

If you’re looking for a buzzy time to go to Mougins, go during the Cannes Film Festival in May. Celebrities and industry pros gather in Cannes to preview new films and attendees often head to Mougins to dine and drink between festival events. Enjoy all the bustle that Cannes has to offer while retreating to your village sanctuary.
Gastronomy made Mougins famous, so consider visiting in June during the Gastronomy Festival when the village of Mougins celebrates the relationship between food and culture. Dive into delicious cuisine prepared by Michelin-starred chefs, and enjoy incredible music and art.
You don’t have to rent a car. Traveling by train, ride-sharing service, or foot is incredibly easy. But if you do decide to rent, take a day trip up to Monte Carlo, Monaco, and drive the Monaco Grand Prix route before dining in the historic city.
If you want to avoid the high season and other tourists, visit in winter. The weather is still incredible and the locals will welcome you as an honorary resident.
