|Further details outdoors|
Whilst the village is largely car free, adding to its charm, there is free parking in the village car parks at the entrance to the village.
There is a grocer 1 minute from the house where you can buy fresh bread, croissants and basic fruit, vegetables, washing powder and other provisions. 'Champion' supermarket is 3 minutes drive away in nearby Mougins town, with a large Carrefour in Antibes.
The wonderful fruit, vegetable and flower market of Forville in Cannes is only 10 minutes away, as is the famous 'Rue d'Antibes' which has good clothes and shoe shopping. There are plentiful restaurants in the village and bars and clubs in nearby Cannes.
The vibrant town of Nice is 25 minutes drive away, and a further 30 minutes East is the principality of Monaco, and then the border with Italy. Good eating and markets can be found in the villages of San Remo and Ventimiglia. To the west is the beautiful Lac St Cassien, the Esterel forest, the stunning Gorges de Verdon and pretty hilltop villages such as Fayence, Seillans and of course the star studded St Tropez.
Located 260m above sea level, the old village enjoys a grandiose panorama over Cannes and the Isles of Lerins, Mandelieu, Grasse and the Pre-Alps. The village is designed in the form of a snail shell, its streets forming a spiral shaped by the ancient village fortifications. Like all villages, Mougins was encircled in ramparts with a parapet walk, which have partly survived along with one remaining old village gate: la porte Sarrazine.
There are many restaurants in Mougins, from simple pizzerias to some of the best restaurants in the area.
