We spent the last 8 days of our vacation here and it was truly perfection. After having been traveling non-stop for a week before, this was really the rest and relaxation we needed. Joel immediately made us feel at home. To add to the charm of the place, when I learned that Joel had renovated the entire place with his own two hands, I was shocked. The quality and attention to detail in everything from the design of the rooms to the lush landscape truly speaks to the warmth that Sonia and Joel have invested in this B&B.
We arrived in Mougins purely for R&R with some loose plans to visit Cannes and other neighboring villages, but ended up staying poolside for the majority of our stay. Realizing that there was no restaurant or food made to order, we went to the local grocery store to stock up on snacks to get us between the huge breakfasts and dinner.
Of course, I cannot leave this review without mentioning the breakfasts, as many reviewers have before me. They absolutely lived up to our expectations, and Sonia continued to surprise us every morning with her homemade tarts, quiches and breads. We grew comfortably accustomed to our 2-3 hour breakfasts sitting outside at a communal table with the other guests and were content until about 2pm, when Joel would bring around ice cream for those who decided to stick around the pool.
All in all, what really made this place special were the people. Not only did we meet several guests who were returning for the third or fourth time who easily call this place their summer home, Joel and Sonia were the most amazing hosts. I would enthusiastically recommend Mas de Mougins to anyone looking for a calm getaway.
