Bormes les Mimosas - town of golden blossoms

You only have to hear the name "Bormes les Mimosas" to have your senses filled with a sweet scent and a burst of golden colour. The charming mediaeval town that carries this evocative name is every bit as lovely as the blossoms, and is considered by many to be one of the most idyllic locations in this utterly beautiful part of France.

Set in an enviable position

Bormes les Mimosas is located in the Var department in the south of France, and occupies an enviable position just inland of yet within sight and scent of the Mediterranean. A near neighbour of the beach resort of Le Lavandou, Bormes les Mimosas has access to lovely beaches and an associated port known as Porte de Bormes.

Sights and attractions

Bormes les Mimosas is a genuine mediaeval town with a rich history and patrimony. There are three areas of the town, a port, a new town and the old town, but the most interesting is undoubtedly the old town. The beaches and the port are colourful and delightful of course, and can be enjoyed to the full during your visit, but it is in the old town that the history and tradition of the area really come to life.

Historical and traditional old town

The charming, if twisting and narrow, streets lead you alongside ancient, crumbling stone and shuttered houses into the sunlight and dappled shade of several pretty squares, where you can rest and refresh yourself with a coffee, a cold drink or even a glass or two of local wine. Climb to the top of the hill to see the remains of the old chateau, and to gaze out to the blue waters of the Mediterranean. Besides the chateau, the town has various sights of interest and importance. Make time to see monuments such as the chapels and churches, and to visit the Arts and History Museum.

Dining out in Bormes les Mimosas

With over 70 restaurants to choose from, Bormes les Mimosas is a paradise for lovers of dining out. Choices range from fine dining in imitable French style to cheap and cheerful pizzerias, with several other options including seafood establishments and Moroccan cuisine to add to the enticing blend.

Exhibitions, festivals and sporting events on offer

There's usually something going on in the town, which is particularly lively in summer. However, to enjoy the light and scent of the mimosas, the best time to visit is winter, as this is when the flowers are at their glorious best. There are exhibitions, festivals and excursions down "Mimosa Road" to enjoy, and all will make you feel the golden glow of summer in the dead of winter! Spring, summer and autumn also offer various festivities and sporting events, so you can be sure there will be plenty to do no matter what time of year you are in town.
