Bastide in Mougins
We are delighted to present this luxury Cote d’Azur villa in the wonderful area of Mougins on the French Riviera! This elegant and typically Provençal bastide is one of the masterpieces of French architect André Svetchine, who spent his life in the Nice area, and worked for prestigious clients such as fashion designer Christian Dior and painter Marc Chagall, before passing away in 1996.
