3 hours (or less) from Paris: Côte d'Azur #4

Mougins, not far from Saint Tropez and where Pablo Picasso chose to spend the last years of his life, is one of the prettiest villages of the Côte d'Azur. But for me, a mere mention of its name and I remember how many times, when in the region, we'd excitedly head to Roger Vergé's incomparable Michelin three-starred restaurant Moulin de Mougins. Considered one of France's greatest chefs, Vergé sadly passed away in 2015. It was there, with friends from London, our three-hour lunches would kick off - memorably once with deep-fried crispy fish bones, piled high on a platter and served with a spicy aïoli, one of the most exquisitely unique ameuse-gueules we agreed that we'd ever experienced. - BPJ
