La Roseraie is an attractive stone villa with a superb pool. Set in beautiful mature gardens, this luxury holiday villa is in walking distance of Mougins and its excellent restaurants. If you’re looking for a high quality Cote d’Azur villa for your vacation then this property with its appealing exterior and attractive internal décor would make an excellent choice. One highlight surely has to be the large private pool which has an unforgettably bright and airy summer kitchen alongside, and another the lovely gardens, planted with over 500 rose bushes. Set apart from neighbouring villas in thoughtfully-designed, spacious grounds, La Roseraie’s location close to Mougins' old quarter is a definite advantage. The walk is short; however, some of the party may occasionally prefer to use the courtesy car as it is also steep! The village itself has much to recommend it. You will be spoilt for choice for excellent places to eat as Mougins has a very strong culinary tradition; several Michelin-starred chefs cook in restaurants here. For wines, try La Cave, a wine cellar and bar where ‘dégustations’ (tastings) can be arranged. And as well as restaurants and wine cellars, the attractive narrow streets of the old town house little shops, pavement cafes, bistrots and art galleries. Over the past decades many artists and celebrities have made this village their home, including Picasso, Christian Dior and actress Catherine Deneuve, all lured by the charm of this perched village. The prestigious Musee d’Art holds an exciting private collection of classic and modern art, and the small photography museum alongside is considered a small gem. For children the closest sandy beaches are to be found at Cannes, just 15 miles down the road, but you can also enjoy outdoor family fun at one of the many fun parks in the area, including the Bois des Lutins at Villeneuve Loubet, Eco Park Mougins and the tree-top adventure park Riviera Nature Parcours. Mougins is also conveniently placed for Cannes and the coast, Antibes, Nice, Grasse, Valbonne and many of the pretty inland villages of the region.
This lovely villa is situated in a small village which is renowned as the Cote d'Azur's capital of gastronomy! Several chefs here have been accredited with Michelin stars. Some of my suggestions in the locality: Les Amandiers, Les Mucadins, Les Trois Etages and La Méditerranée ... a little further afield in Grasse is the excellent Bastide St Antoine, and also Lou Fassun in Plascassier. Mougins itself has plenty of attractive art galleries too, and exhibitions are held in the village's old laundry house where all the womenfolk used to gather to wash the clothes. This location is also handy for pretty Valbonne, atmospheric Grasse and sparkling Cannes, so you won't be short of fantastic places to visit!
