Chateau de Mougins

The Château occupies the south half of a hill overlooking the bay of Cannes/Mandelieu, with 15 hectares of forest, olive grove, and vegetable garden providing a privacy buffer zone, encircling the 5-hectare private parc that forms the heart of the property. The woodlands and most of the part of the property are classified as a nature reserve for their outstanding natural beauty (Espace Boisé Classé).
The private park dates back to the times of Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll, offering stunning old trees and different zones for different purposes throughout the day and the seasons.

The main terrace of the château offers (in-)formal dining locations for different situations – shaded under the plane trees, in full sunlight between the fountains, in the evening shade of a large cypress, around the wood-burning pizza oven – depending on the weather and the guest preferences.
The ancient olive grove next to the château boasts olive trees between 400 and 800 years old, a beautiful place to promenade or picnic.
The traditional rose garden displays ±50 different rose varietals with varying colors, shapes, and smells. It is regularly used for small-group luncheons or sunset aperitifs.
The formal « French Terrace » below the main terrace offers the geometric hedge design made famous by Versailles, a popular place for cocktails or tea.

Chateau de Mougins


Nestled in a secure estate between the charming towns of Mougins and Cannes, this sumptuous Demeure de Maître majestically overlooks the Bay of Cannes and the Estérel mountains.

This historic 17th-century residence has been carefully restored and modernized to guarantee the highest levels of comfort and security while retaining its timeless elegance.

Facing the Iles de Lérins, the château is a former monastery built by the island’s monks. Although it was transformed over the years into an aristocratic residence, it has retained its name and homage. It became an emblematic residence of the French Riviera, thanks to the vision of Sir Edwin Lutyens, who completely transformed it in 1912.

Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944) was a renowned British architect, widely recognized for his diverse and influential work in the field of architecture. He is often associated with the Arts and Crafts movement, as well as with the Georgian Revival architectural style. His architectural style was characterized by a combination of tradition and innovation, integrating classical and modern elements to create buildings that were both elegant and functional. Lutyens had a unique ability to adapt his style to his clients’ preferences and the characteristics of the site, which led to a variety of designs. Known for two types of buildings, he completed military memorials and castles in France, England, and India.

Among the castles he built was Castle Drogo, in Devon, England, an emblematic work of the Arts and Crafts movement, with its meticulous architectural detailing and meticulous interior design.

Château Lérins is one of his first large-scale achievements and is a grandiose testament to his art in France.

After the First World War, the château was bought by the British banker and statesman Baron de Wolverton, who made it his family’s vacation residence for several decades.

Just before the Second World War, after the death of Baron Wolverton and his heir, his widow sometimes rented out the property as a summer residence to wealthy holidaymakers. In the summer of 1939, the Kennedy family rented the property while Joseph Kennedy was US Ambassador to the United Kingdom and John F. Kennedy (his son) traveled around Europe getting to know the continent.

In the 1980s and 1990s, the château played host to some of the biggest names in art and cinema, who stayed in Mougins in conjunction with the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. These included Catherine Deneuve, Elizabeth Taylor, Sharon Stone, and Sean Connery.

Very recently, the château has been completely renovated to bring it up to modern luxury standards. This cocoon of prestige and privacy extends over hectares of classified forest, olive groves, and Mediterranean flowerbeds. A haven of peace just a stone’s throw from Cannes’ sunny beaches, this residence offers absolute privacy.



Mougins is a destination that exudes culture and embodies a prestigious art of living. This charming Provencal commune has seduced artists and aesthetic enthusiasts alike with its rich heritage, exquisite gastronomy, and elegant atmosphere.

Culture in Mougins manifests itself through its picturesque alleyways, art galleries, and museums. The village has long been a haven for many artists, including the legendary Pablo Picasso. The famous painter spent the last years of his life in Mougins, leaving a lasting imprint on the town.

The art of living in Mougins is synonymous with luxury and refinement. Michelin-starred restaurants offer memorable gastronomic experiences, where Mediterranean flavors are sublimated by talented chefs. Local markets abound with fresh, colorful produce, offering a plunge into authentic Provencal cuisine.

Mougins’ architecture reflects its rich history, with stone buildings, colorful townhouses, and sumptuous villas blending harmoniously into the landscape. Mediterranean gardens, fountains, and terraces offer spaces for relaxation and contemplation, where the art of living takes on its full meaning.
