Last summer, during a trip to the South of France, we had the pleasure of visiting the delightful village of Mougins, a small hilltop town fifteen minutes from Cannes, and a world away from the hustle and bustle of La Croisette. The entrance to the town was so tight, that our car got stuck in one of those tiny dead end alleyways that only clever maneuvering back and forth, perhaps a few inches at a time, can get you detangled from. But ah, once we arrived, what a wonderful place to meander…
As with most hilltop towns in this part of the world, the views were stunning.
A wonderful place for a relaxed Provençal meal, Le Bistrot de Mougins.
But we had our petit déjeuner before we arrived…
So we wandered instead, enchanted by the way the colors of the village reflected the natural scenery surrounding it.
Ivy covered stone facades with perky white shutters opened to the clear day.
Delicious small shops tease as you pass their inviting window displays. I must admit I didn’t leave empty handed.
These delicate window boxes charmed us in their pale blue setting.
Greenery, sunshine and lace. C’est magnifique!
