Medieval Village of Mougins 
The hilltop of Mougins had been occupied since the pre-Roman period. 

In the 11th century the Count of Antibes gave the Mougins hillside to the Monks of Saint Honorat (from the nearby Îles de Lerins just off the coast of Cannes) who continued to administer the village until the French Revolution.

Mougins has a strong culinary history with such great chefs as Roger Vergé and Alain Ducasse having managed restaurants in the village. 

Given its close proximity to Cannes, Mougins is also often the tourist destination for Hollywood stars during the Cannes Film Festival.

   The Matton-Farnets have been in the wine industry for almost three centuries, beginning at the Domaine de Chateauneuf in Vidauban, and continuing at Château Minuty from 1936 where Gabriel Farnet, the grandfather of François and Jean-Etienne, the current owners, set up. Gabriel Farnet replanted the entire wine estate and returned Château Minuty to its former glory. It was built under Napoleon III, as was the small chapel that the cuvee de l’Oratoire takes its name from and which was the estate’s flagship bottle for a long time. The most prestigious hotels on the Côte d’Azur still have its fat Burgundian-shaped bottles. In 1955 Château Minuty was one of 23 estates to be consecrated as a classed growth of the Côtes de Provence.

    
    
    
    
 The vineyards are directly influenced by the sea with a south-east aspect. These 75 hectares of vines benefit from a temperate maritime climate. The sea breezes dry the vines after morning dew or rain and contribute to reducing the risks of disease.

Antibes was founded as a 5th-century BC Greek colony settled by Phocaeans from Massilia,[1] called Ἀντίπολις, Antípolis which literally means the “city across” as the city was situated across the sea from “Νίκαια”, the main Greek city at that time. Due to its naturally protected port, the town of Antibes has long been an important trading centre.
Rome gradually increased its hold over the Mediterranean coast and in 43 BC, Antipolis was officially incorporated in the propraetorial (senatorial from 27 BC) province of Gallia Narbonensis in which it remained for the next 500 years. Antipolis grew into the largest town in the region and a main entry point into Gaul. Roman artifacts such as aqueducts, fortified walls and amphoræ can still be seen today.
After the Western Roman Empire disintegrated in 476 AD various barbarian tribes seized Antibes. This resulted in destruction and a long period of instability. In the 10th century, Antibes found a protector in Seigneur Rodoart, who built extensive fortified walls around the town and a castle in which to live. For the next 200 years, the town experienced a period of renewal.
Prosperity was short-lived, as the whole region fell into disarray for several centuries. The inhabitants of Antibes stayed behind their strong city walls as a succession of wars and epidemics ravaged the countryside. By the end of the 15th century, the region was under the protection and control of King Louis XI of France. Relative stability returned, but the small port of Antibes fell into obscurity.
From around the middle of the 19th century the Antibes area regained its popularity, as wealthy people from around Europe discovered its natural beauty and built luxurious homes here.
In 1926, the old Château Grimaldi in Antibes was bought by the local municipality and later restored for use as a museum. Pablo Picasso came to the town in 1946, having visited his friend and fellow painter Gerald Murphy and his wife Sara there in 1923, and was invited to stay in the castle. During his six-month stay Picasso painted and drew as well as crafting ceramics and tapestries. When he departed Picasso left a number of his works to the municipality. The castle has since become the Picasso Museum.

Baôli Nightclub and Baôli beach best spots around the French Riviera.

The Baôli restaurant-disco is at Port Canto. The two establishments offer the same menu and both are apt to attract wandering celebrities and restless tycoons. If you do not fall into one of those two categories, you will probably be welcomed as the commoner you are. The beach-restaurant is stylishly decorated and the dining is handled by chef Bruno Oger. Baoli beach has the longest pier in Cannes. 

 I loved it!
