While jet-setting around the French Riviera for a high-end holiday home, investors would do well to stop off at Mougins. Just a short car ride away from Cannes, the town is one of the most popular areas near the coast – and with good reason.

Located 15 minutes by car from Cannes, Mougins shares the same temperate climate but in far prettier surroundings. Cyprus and olive trees surround the village, while the hilltops stretch up to 260 metres, offering a spectacular 360-degree panorama of the Côte d'Azur.
If Cannes is the playground of the stars, Mougins is the cool park next door. Golf courses, galleries and museums add to the laidback lifestyle of the French Riviera's quiet countryside retreat; the kind of environment that drew minds such as Pablo Picasso and Winston Churchill to live there.
Mougins is famous for its chefs, a reputation that has attracted celebrities to host dinners there for years. Traditionally, its rural surroundings has seen it rely on flowers and perfumeries for income, but as with the rest of the Riviera, tourism now provides an equally powerful financial scent. •
"There aren't really such a thing as apartments in Mougins. You can get villas or village houses from €900k and up – there are some stunning things out there. Because it's set back a bit from the coast it's slightly cooler, which is why Brits like it. It's a retreat from the city life. You get views of the coast, even though you're in the hills."
