Fodor's Review

You can find Picasso's final home, where he lived for 12 years until 1973, by following D35 2 km (1 mile) south of Mougins to the ancient ecclesiastical site of Notre-Dame-de-Vie. From his room, he could see the 13th-century bell tower and arcaded chapel, a pretty ensemble once immortalized in a painting by Winston Churchill. The chapel, listed as a historical monument since 1927, is said to date back to 1655. Approached through an allée of ancient cypresses, the former priory house Picasso shared with his wife, Jacqueline, overlooks the broad bowl of the countryside (now blighted with modern construction). Unfortunately, his residence was bought by a private investor and is closed to the public.
