Take a look inside the 25€ million fairytale château on the market in Mougins 

chateau mougins

Dreamlike Provençal style and architecture, but on a truly mind-blowing scale: that’s what awaits the future buyer of the incredible Château Lérins in Mougins, which is currently on sale for €25 million. Here are all the details. 

The Château Lérins is built on the site of a former 17th century monastery constructed by monks domiciled on the Lérins Islands that face the city of Cannes.

In the early 20th century, the 19.5-hectare estate caught the eye of English architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. By 1912, he had completed a major transformation of the property, turning it into an “aristocratic” residence that saw the restoration of some of the older, classic elements and the modernisation and enhancement of others.  

The main residence covers almost 1,400sqm, but combined with the staff quarters and an old bergerie in need of renovation, the living space actually extends to a massive 2,000sqm. This includes 19 bedrooms, 20 bathrooms and 25 other rooms. There are also multiple balconies and terraces for the indoor-outdoor feel so appreciated in this part of the world. 

Outside, a verdant forest of native trees, shrubs and olive groves adds to the tranquility and peacefulness of this haven, which offers proximity to Royal Golf Mougins as well as the much-loved area of Mougins’ old town.  

There is parking aplenty – enough for 10 cars, easily – a clay tennis court and a 130sqm golf range for days when you don’t feel like leaving the house. There’s also a spa, a gym and a pétanque court. You really needn’t go anywhere else.  

The swimming pool measures an epic 21x6m and is accompanied by a 90sqm pool house with its own lounge and prep space for entertaining waterside.

And we haven’t even mentioned the views yet. From horizon to horizon, the prospective owners and their guests will be dazzled from every angle. From one perspective, you can enjoy views of the Esterel and the Bay of Cannes, but turn around and you’ll be enchanted by a panorama of mountains and endless skies.  

All in all, this is a genuinely exceptional property that is rare even on a market as luxurious as that of the French Riviera.

Everything you need to know about the upcoming Trott’n’Roll event in Monaco


The Flavien Foundation’s annual Trott’n’Roll event is back later this month with a renewed drive to raise funds for charity all while having plenty of fun.  

Back in 2014, brain cancer took the life of eight-year-old Flavien Maccario. Since then, his father Denis has made it his personal mission to stop any other child from suffering this tragic fate. The grieving parent, in tribute to his young son, also created the Flavien Foundation, Monaco’s first charity association that’s wholly dedicated to fighting paediatric cancers and other rare childhood diseases. The organisation puts on several events each year, with one of the most popular being the upcoming Trott’n’Roll.  


Trott’n’Roll, now in its ninth year, runs from 9am to 6pm on Saturday 16th September and asks participants to head to the Jardins d’Apolline on the Allée Lazare Sauvaigo with any two, three or four wheeler of their choice.  

All day long, the event will feature entertainment for all ages, including a skate park, games, stands, a tombola and cosplayers. There is also a “One Rider One Child” parade starting at 2.30pm that takes a spin around the Principality. Monaco’s firefighters will also be abseiling down the garden’s facades! 

Food and drink will be available on-site.  


This year’s focus will be to remind people of the importance of donating blood, as well about bone marrow donations. The charity association will be supported in this task by representatives from the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace and the Nice University Hospital.  

All participants and guests are asked to wear orange, the official colour of the Flavien Foundation, in another show of support for this admirable charity.
