An Unmissable New Museum in Mougins

Mougins is a picture-perfect centuries-old hilltop village. Constructed like a spiral with ancient passageways lined with stone houses, it is now a magnet for craftspeople, artists and high-class restaurateurs.

But there’s an additional reason for visiting the village and that’s the Musée d’Art Classique de Mougins.

Continue reading here to discover why Lynne thinks this is one of the best museums in the South of France and one that you should not miss. The gallery collection of 700 works includes pieces from antiquity and more recent artists Chagall, Cézanne, Matisse and Picasso.

Pablo Picasso first discovered Mougins with his muse, Dora Marr, in 1935. Tempted by the proximity of the French Riviera and surrounded by unspoilt countryside, Picasso returned to Mougins in 1961. He established his atelier was in the building that is now the tourist office. He purchased the 35-room villa Notre Dame de Vie, and it was there where he died in 1973 at the age of 91. The villa is privately owned.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully, it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."

For what is going on in Aix-en-Provence, Lynne has you covered at Aixcentric
