Another nice place to visit, this provencial little church, Notre Dame de Vie; a romantic place and arounds, near Picasso's residence ; the bell allows to know the time all day; ideal for a nice walk.

Picasso spent so many of his last years here. Its sort of become a pilgrimage to him and his art. I found it beautiful. Really peaceful and tranquil. Didn't spend ing here as not much to do except walk around and enjoy the view. Traditional french architecture. Worth a visit

Just to the south of Mougins is Notre-Dame-de-Vie, which is where Picasso chose to spend the last twelve years of his life. His house is now in private hands and closed to the public, but one can still visit the 13th century bell tower that was visible from his room. We made the pilgrimage to this very special spot and...

I think it's a lovely church in a town that's so picturesque Lots of great photo opportunities. We got to see a wedding party arrive which was super. Definitely worth a visit

There was a wedding at the old church and it looked so traditionally French. Yet the Church is so small.

A sweet chapel but really difficult to find and if you hope to see Picasso's former home then you'll be disappointed; you can get a glimpse of the back through some trees but that's about it. There's a small photo exhibition upstairs but nothing to get excited about.

This is the lovely chapel, recently renovated, right beside Picasso's villa where he spent the last 12 years of his life. The chapel is now a small museum with photographs of Picasso and the history of Mougins explained. It's about a 2km drive from the old village on the next hill. I would combine a visit to the Chapel with... More

Very difficult to find. Very little publicity made around this little chapel dating from the 17th century, painted by Churchill, visited by Picasso who lived nearby for 12 years. Unfortunately it is not open to the public.

Built on what was once a Roman temple dedicated to Diana and dating as a church from the 11th century, Notre Dame has had a facelift. Having fallen into disrepair, the restoration work carried out has returned it to its former Provencal self in a non-obtrusive way. The chapel has been renovated and those of a religious disposition can go... More
