Easy living in the South of France

Easy living in the South of France

05.05.20

Globally renowned for its fine cuisine and heavenly climate, the true endurance of the Cote d’Azur is undoubtedly due to the lifestyle it presents, but also the timeless and enchanting architecture it offers. From medieval villages and rural landscapes to city living and superyacht marinas, the region caters for all tastes and a surprisingly broad range of budgets.

Buyers relocating permanently to the region often target the area inland around Mougins. Located 6km from the Boulevard de la Croisette in Cannes, the perched hilltop village has its own intoxicating Provencal vibe. “With a well-regarded international school, the nearby technology park of Sophia Antipolis, and the annual festival and conference roster of Cannes; there is a tangible vibrancy throughout the year,” comments Jack Harris, Associate Partner, and member of Knight Frank’s Residential French Desk. Alongside this, the village was also home to Picasso in the 1930s. One therefore finds an eclectic mix of galleries throughout its cobbled streets, which are complemented by some of the finest eateries in the region. 

A home currently for sale in the area, priced at €5,400,000 with a total of seven bedrooms, perfectly demonstrates this appeal. As locations go, the estate enjoys a truly exceptional position. The Castellaras hillside is home to some of the finest homes on the French Riviera which boast a lush green environment with far-reaching views towards the Mediterranean. 

The accommodation of the property has been meticulously maintained and restored with beautiful stone fireplaces, ancient doorways, and original tiled floors. Arranged across a four bedroom main house, a guest apartment, and a two bedroom guardian’s cottage, the home allows for the future owner to host a great number of guests. “One of the greatest features is the extraordinarily beautiful gardens,” adds Jack Harris. Set in approximately 6,500 sqm of grounds, which include an olive grove, citrus trees, an idyllic pool area, and a gorgeous tree-lined driveway. 

With a wine cellar, cinema room, and an array of terraces with far-reaching views towards the Mediterranean and the charming hilltop village of Mougins nearby, one certainly has plenty to do.
