Villa Mirabelle is situated just a five minute walk from Mougins town, 20 minutes away from Cannes and 30 minutes from Nice Airport.
Mougins is a town and commune in the Alpes-Maritimes département in southeastern France. It is near a medium sized town, Grasse, which is the international capital of perfume. The town of Mougins is where the artist Pablo Picasso died.
Mougins is a beautiful place to visit on the Côte d'Azur, a pretty medieval village only a 15 minute drive from Cannes. The village is surrounded by forests, such as the Valmasque forest, enhancing the environment in the village. The pines, olives and cypress trees in the village also add to the quality of the local environment, making the village popular with tourists in summer.
Mougins is picturesque and charming, with beautiful French architecture carefully restored. This scenery, colour and light quality has attracted many artists and celebrities to the village, such as Picasso, Cocteau, Winston Churchill and Christian Dior, as well as many others. Picasso spent the last 15 years of his life living in Mougins and today the Museum of Photography has an interesting permanent collection of photographic portraits.
The many studios and art galleries in Mougins make the village a great place to visit, with its relaxing atmosphere and scenery.
The town has a large number of excellent restaurants. Many are in the centre of the village including perhaps the most famous, the Moulin de Mougins.
