Bormes les Mimosas

20 km from Hyeres, on the D559 leading to Le Lavandou and Cavalaire.

Bormes les Mimosas, the village
Classed as one of the most flowered villages in France, Bormes les Mimosas extends its territory both by the sea and in the overhanging land a few kilometers from the beaches where its old village stands proudly like a Provencal crib.
In Bormes les Mimosas you will visit its old village on the hill and two of its emblematic seaside districts, la Faviere (port) and Cabasson (beaches)
Bormes les Mimosas, fountain
- The old village perched on a hill facing the sea:
It is the true village of Provence, typical and authentic with its old houses with pink and ocher tiles, posed in an amphitheater facing the Mediterranean, the ramparts and ruins of the castle, its flowered alleys which meander in a labyrinth of stone walls covered lush vegetation.
Bormes les Mimosas, view of the sea on the Porquerolles island
You will have a panoramic view of the plain which stretches to the Mediterranean coast and faces the Golden Islands: Porquerolles and Ile du Levant.
- The Faviere district:
By the sea, the marina and the marina around the Carre d'Honneur are a pleasant and very lively area in summer. It is here that you will find diving schools, nautical base and La Faviere beach and Gouron beach.
Bormes les Mimosas, Bregancon Beach
- The Cabasson district:
After having crossed magnificent protected pine groves and vineyards of great wine estates (Domaine Ott, Chateau Bregançon, Chateau Leoube ...), you will discover the beaches of Cabasson, Estagnol and Pellegrin in their wild and protected. These are among the most beautiful beaches in the Var, or even on the Cote d'Azur.
Bormes les Mimosas, street
It is also in the Cabasson district, a former fishing village, that the famous Fort de Bregançon (on a small peninsula) is located, summer residence of the Presidents of the French Republic since 1968.
Previously closed to the public, François Hollande has decided to open it to visits to the general public in summer since 2014. 2-hour guided tours, tickets on sale beforehand at the tourist office.
Bormes les Mimosas, chapel
Each year the last weekend of February takes place the Bormes Grand Flower Corso of Mimosa.
Nearly 12,000 visitors attend each year the parade of nearly a dozen superbly decorated floats that perfume the whole village.
