A classic Provencal-style villa, gleaming white against the Mediterranean sky and adorned with traditional stone balustrades, Villa Julien is a luxurious retreat with a touch of bohemian chic.
Standing tall and elegant amid mature gardens bursting with lush palm trees and fragrant blooms, the house looks out over pine-clad hills towards the famous ‘blue coast’, a short drive away.
Inside, the villa’s décor is pristine and minimalist, with whitewashed walls and stone floors that are both stylish and deliciously cool underfoot. Quirky arched windows, brightly coloured cushions and kilims and an assortment of furnishing styles lend an air of informality to the open plan ground floor, while a traditional stone fireplace in the living area makes for cosy evenings, even outside of high summer.
A modern, fully fitted kitchen provides plenty of scope for those who relish the chance to expand their culinary skills while on holiday, and there’s no shortage of inspiration for even the most ardent foodie in the cafés and restaurants of Mougins. With the huge, 10-seater dining table provided, you can choose to be as formal as you please when it comes to presenting your creations.
French doors lead out from the ground floor rooms to a pretty garden and patio area which offers another fabulous option: a table with a view for alfresco dining and barbecues. With a chilled glass of bubby to hand and the lights of nearby villages twinkling below, you’ll soon relax into Mougins mode.
Villa Julien’s comfortable bedrooms are divided between the lower ground floor and the first floor. The three first floor rooms, all doubles with their own en suite bath or shower room, also boast French doors that open onto a lovely balcony from where guests can savour the delightful views. The two twin bedded rooms on the lower ground floor share a bathroom and an additional living room, ideal for teenage children or anyone in the group who might appreciate a little private space and independence.
The villa’s pièce de résistance is its magnificent private pool, partly shaded by lofty palm trees and fringed by stone paving with stylish sun loungers thoughtfully placed to offer a choice of sun or shade. There’s even a separate section, complete with a little palm island at its heart.
Mougins has captured the hearts of many celebrities over the years, especially those with a passion for art. Picasso himself chose to live here in his later years and the village is awash with art galleries exhibiting every genre. A browse of the artworks, followed by coffee at one of the chic pavement cafés, will be just one of the highlights of your visit. Eating out is another of Mougins’ great attractions, with a number of first class restaurants to choose from, including several with Michelin stars.
Of course, with Cannes only 15 minutes away by car, those in search of livelier nightlife will find it in plentiful supply. The famous beaches of Juan les Pins and Antibes are within half an hour’s drive while golfers will find it hard to resist a round or two at the beautiful Golf Country Club de Cannes-Mougins just outside the village.
Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply looking for a culturally interesting spot for a memorable family holiday, Villa Julien comes highly recommended.
