Raising the bar for Côte d’Azur stays, this four-star hideaway at the edge of the prestigious Royal Mougins Golf Club is one of the chicest addresses in Mougins – the artsy Riviera village where Pablo Picasso spent the last 15 years of his life. But most fabulously, you’ll be just 15 minutes from Cannes – the glitzy and glam Riviera powerhouse where too-chic boutiques line the promenade and eye-poppingly huge yachts dot the harbour at La Croisette Beach.
All of the luxurious guest rooms and apartments assure a grown-up balance of high-end comfort and timeless elegance; think sleek Provençal décor, neutral colour tones, sophisticated furnishings, and all the mod cons you’ll need. There’s also an outdoor pool lined with sunloungers, an all-day restaurant for freshly prepared Mediterranean and Provençal specialities, a cosy bar for end-of-day drinks, and a lovely spa for massages and other beauty treatments.
There’s also plenty to see and do outside the hotel grounds, including visiting the Mougins Museum of Classical Art to marvel at works by Hirst, Dali, Warhol and Picasso, and popping to Cannes for a quick splurge in the fashion boutiques and chocolatiers along Rue d’Antibes. But for most, though, the pièce de résistance is the Robert von Hagge-designed 18-hole golf course – the majority of which stretches across the beautiful valley known as Vallon de l’Oeuf.
How to Get There
You need to need this place functions as serviced apartments. There is nobody there from 23:00 on and the services available are quite limited.
Starting on the positive side, the location is great and the apartments are comfortable and in good condition. There are four or five house (mas, in French) and they all have apartments ranging from a small about 20sqm room to big three bedroom apartments.
All the rooms I have seen have a terrace and that makes the experience much more charming (if the weather helps).
The swimming pool is small but enough for a swim or for the kids to enjoy some time in the water.
The restaurant is just ok. We only had one meal and felt like we are disturbing them. It closes at 22:00 and then the place looks deserted.
There is an underground parking where any car can enter easily.
Overall stay was quiet disappointing. No assistance with baggages although they claim it is a four star hotel. One of the two apartments we had booked was disgusting when we got there:
1- Hair in bathroom
2- Hair on living room carpet
3- Freakin toe nail in the bed room floor ( pic below)
To top it off our bedroom Air conditioning was not working so our vacation was more of camping mode in mid-August heat.
The staff was quite responsive and did their best to address the issues, however I think this place has a fundamental mismanagement problem
The hotel itself is “ok” fairly clean rooms and “ok” pool.
The pool bar was closed, so we had to get drinks from the main bar which took a while.
The breakfast selection is terrible...... unless you just want to eat carbs, carbs and more carbs.
The “manager” on reception was the RUDEST woman I have ever met and when I checked out they tried to charge me £300 for the terrible breakfast which I had previously been told was included. I disputed and they said “ok no problem, we don’t charge you” then when I left the STOLE the money out of my account anyway. Needless to say I have reported them for fraud. Absolutely disgusting
