Mougins, France

Villa Grain d'Orge

Style

Nouveau neutral

Setting

Grapes and grain

The five-bedroom Villa Grain d'Orge is a pool-toting luxury retreat perched in prime position on the Côte d’Azur in the hilltop town of Mougins. The neutral interiors boast traditional elegance and modern swagger, with natural materials and chic styling alongside sculptures and ceramics sourced from local artisans. But if there’s one thing to coax you outside, it’ll be the cool blue pool, sitting on a terrace overlooking hills rolling down to the sea. In the evenings you can spark up the barbecue and gather around the firepit, or eat out instead – Mougins is a gastro capital of the region, which says a lot when the neighbours include Cannes and Grasse.
