Hotel de Mougins

We did not get to see Carol Drinkwater's Passionata farm, but we must have been nearby when we found Hotel de Mougins in the hills behind Cannes. It was a 51 room hotel and it looked very quiet and refined. The hotel had a typical Provencal setting and it was made up of four charming country houses situated in a peaceful setting, surrounding a scented garden with swimming pool. The hotel had a bar and outside restaurant, as well as tennis court and access to golf courses. Our rooms were air-conditioned and quite comfortable and they even had an outside balcony with table and chairs.

The girl at the reception was very helpful and went out of her way to print maps for us and book a restaurant for dinner. The hotel has a new chef now and he offers a cooking course for hotel guests! The course lasts a full or half day and for dinner, guests can enjoy the dishes they have learned to prepare earlier! We would have liked to have dinner in the hotel, but they were completely booked out.

After our long drive, we were glad to sit outside to enjoy some cold drinks before going out to dinner in the town of Mougins.

The next morning there was blue sky and not a cloud around, so we sat outside to enjoy breakfast and it felt great to be surrounded by all that Mediterranean scenery! Breakfast was excellent and there was not only fresh fruit and juice, but also assorted cereals, nuts, yoghurt, croissants and assorted pastries, plus coffee and hot chocolate for the kids. They were beautiful surroundings and they put us in the mood for what was to come in the Midi in the days ahead! Reluctantly, we had to leave Mougins, without even having a swim in their pool, as we were eager to get to the boat to start our cruise and meet my brother Will and her friend Ivanna.
