Presentation

Set in the heart of an enchanting estate of almost 2 hectares, and surrounded by lush, romantic parkland, Le Park Cannes Mougins is nestled opposite the old village of Mougins, only 30 minutes from Nice-Côte d’Azur airport and 15 minutes from the Palais des Festivals de Cannes and the techno-city of Sophia Antipolis. Le Park Cannes Mougins is the perfect place for extravagant parties and extraordinary events. Its lounges, terraces, gardens, fountains and ponds are frozen in time, drawing guests into the magic of an emotive, epicurean journey orchestrated by Eric Finon, Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2011 (Most Skilled Craftsman of France 2011).

History

It is said that in the 1930s, William Burton, son of a wealthy New York brewery owner renovated the surrounding 11-hectare Domaine Saint-Antoine in the countryside of Mougins … He was not the first owner of the house, but William Burton was a man of taste and a lover of nature, and went to great lengths to enhance the place.
He grew flowers from all over the world, indulged in his architectural follies, built pools and patios, collected orchids and Rolls Royce cars and was a generous host to the villagers as well as artists, men of letters and world-famous celebrities. Charlie Chaplin was a regular patron at Le Park and would spend endless nights under the stars, where guests would drink the night away without a care in the world. In 1939, William Burton returned to American soil and the evolution of this magnificent venue was put on hold.
Now, the keys to the estate have been entrusted to the Maison Lenôtre, continuing the work of this genius of festivities, and bringing Le Park into the 21st century.
