What did Picasso and Churchill have in common? Both painted in Mougins, a
place they loved. In a snail-like formation, this once fortified city
has inspired many an artist and more recently, received numerous stars
seeking a hideout from the Cannes-festival. Little is left from the
roman days except the ruins of the ramparts from the 14th century.
Protected forest and parks cover 50% of the area. Its mild and dry
climate makes Mougins an attractive place to live. 8 kms. from Mougins,
you find neighbouring Mouans-Sartoux, also deserted in the 14th century
and rebuilt the following century.
