Our favourite rooms
All rooms and apartments are furnished with top-drawer linens and fabrics, with original features such as oak beams and local tiles well preserved. Of the four one-room suites, we loved Suite Anais – mainly due to the fact it has its own small private terrace; for space, choose Suite Alexander. Families or groups should go for Maison de Village Marion, which sleeps six and has a bedroom with bunk beds for kids. (It’s also in a particularly charming spot, next to the church square, with a courtyard-facing terrace.)
There’s no pool, but Mougins can arrange driver drop-offs and pick-ups to and from the beach.
Mediaeval alleyway-friendly footwear; an impressive knowledge of Cubism and modern art; and an appetite for some Michelin stars.
None of the rooms or apartments have wheelchair access.
All ages are welcome, but there are no special facilities for children. Cots can be added to all rooms, or book a two-bedroom apartment. Maison de Village Marion has a room for kids with bunk beds.
