Nicola Gowans purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Nicola Gowans chose Mougins
We purchased the villa in Mougins for it's provencale Charm and location. Mougins rates as one of the top neighborhoods in the South of France to live. It's very well located for easy access to all motorways, and some of the best schools in the South of France. The villa is so peaceful and quiet. We fell in love with the garden and the country side surrounding the area. The restaurants in the area & old village of Mougins are world renowned as gastronomic. In Mougins you truly get an authentic feel of what life is like living in the south of France. We also chose this area, as it is not overwhelmed in the summer with tourists as some of the other places are. Easy to drive to all the beaches and Cannes, Antibes or Nice. Traffic is not congested even in the summer months.
What makes this Villa unique
Apart from how beautiful Mougins is, the best part of this villa is the authenticity of the Provence feeling and the magical gardens. The garden is so private & in the summer you will enjoy breakfast, lunch & dinner in it. The activities surrounding Mougins, such as hikes, beaches, lakes and the back country of the Var and Provence are all between 15 minutes and or a 2 hour drive. The Italian border is only 1 hour away and you can enjoy the day in San Remo shopping and eating the local cuisine.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Excellent holiday for the family
Lovely house in a lovely location. Nicola couldn't have been more helpful from the first moment we booked. Pool was great!
Mosquitoes were pretty rough despite the garden being sprayed just before we arrived.
Great holiday nice location. Mosquitos were vicious all day long day and night but overall great hol
Nice place, quite rustic
We haven't not had as much rain this winter as we did last year, so normally we should have less mosquitos.
This summer we are going to be doubling up on the mosquito garden spraying. :-)
picturesque area, convenient for Nice, Cannes, Grasse and other surrounding villages.
Villa needs updating, but is adequate. Lovely pool.
Amazing villa in a super location. Perfect property to chill out in with a lovely pool and BBQ are, and such a good location for seeing other parts of the South of France.

One of our best holidays in a fantastic Villa so far in France. Our family travels once a year to the South of France and staying at this peaceful and cozy villa in Mougin made our trip even more pleasant than usual.
