The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region

The Côte d'Azur, otherwise known as THE FRENCH RIVIERA, brings tradition together with modern comforts.

Though the French Riviera is often associated with luxury and eccentricity, it is also a land rich in heritage and culture.

Its large seaside walkways and its gorgeous bays of white sand giving onto the Mediterranean Sea have made the region an internationally renowned holiday destination.

From Saint Tropez to Monaco and Cannes, through tiny tucked-away villages like, Mougins, Valbonne and Mouans-Sartoux, the French Riviera is full of surprises just waiting to be discovered. You'll discover fascinating culture and delicious cuisine, a refined but relaxed lifestyle, and an exciting variety of events.

Whether you're a family looking to for sunny beaches and recreational activities, a couple looking to discover the charm of small towns and fishing ports, or friends looking to party all night in clubs and discos, the French Riviera is sure to surpass your expectations and Villa Dusett is in the centre of it all!

Mouans Sartoux

Mouans Sartoux.

Mouans-Sartoux only 5 minutes from Villa Dusett is a mondernized Medieval village located on the flatlands between Grasse and Cannes. The old town (veille ville) is layed out in the Lerins style of symmetrical rectangles like that of nearby Valbonne.

"Mouans" is an active little town, with the lived-in old-town merging smoothly with the dynamic activities of the modern part of the town. Annual events Mouans-Sartoux has become known for include a book fair, pottery markets, winter santons exhibit and a modern multiplex cinema.


The old village only 5 minutes away from Villa Dusett, which has a large Anglophone population, has retained much of its 16th-century character, though mixed with an active town atmosphere. In contrast to the twisty little streets in the hundreds of other medieval villages of Beyond, Valbonne village is laid out in neat, symmetrical rectangles planned by the Abbot of Lerins, following the layout of Roman cities.

In the center of the village is the very lovely, 16th-century Place des Arcades. This central square is surrounded on all four sides by picturesque arcades, café terraces and little shops. The arcade at the "Hotel Les Armoiries" is engraved with a stone as "1628". Unfortunately, and unnecessarily, the square is also a parking lot for about 10 cars; not enough to be useful, but enough to spoil the view and the character of the square.

Dispersed through the little streets are more shops and a few, well-respected restaurants here and there. Our favorite is the Cadran Solaire on the rue Eugène Giraud (tel: (33) 493 12 13 30). For lunch or Sunday brunch try the Comptoir du Sud on rue Gambetta, at the edge of the old town.

At the bottom of the village, across the street below the rectangle of the center, is the 12th-century Eglise Saint Blaise, the attached Chalaisien Abbey (or "Ancien Couvent Chalaisien"), the Moulin des Moines (now a restaurant), and a very ancient-looking carved-stone monument. The Couvent Abbey is now being restored (June 1996), and is looking very smart.

Beside the village to the west, across the street, is a new, little shopping complex and a parking lot. It has at least one restaurant, newspaper shop, food and produce shops, and the post office is at the far end of the parking lot.


Mougins is without doubt one of the most wonderful places to visit on the Cote d'Azur. Only 15 minutes from Cannes and 5 minutes from Villa Dusett, this superb medieval village is set amongst pines, olives and cyprus trees.

Surrounded by forests (the Valmasque forest covers 427 hectares) Mougins has kept the quality of its environment intact, and offers visitors, from the height of 260 metres, a panoramic view of the "baie de Cannes", the Lerins islands, Grasse and the "Pre Alpes".
