Mandelieu, Mimosa Capital.
Nature maintains her rights and is starting to cover the hills of Mandelieu in mimosas, thus allowing the town to cultivate is reputation as the Mimosa Capital.
In fact, every year, from December to February, Mandelieu is bedecked in yellow and there is a gently aromatic atmosphere that bathes the surrounding districts. A symbol of the winter sunshine on the Côte d’Azur, it is the opportunity to take a multitude of walks or hikes with a sea view, in the Grand-Duc Forest or in the Tanneron, THE mimosa mountain range: indeed, it is given the title of the “Biggest Mimosa Forest in Europe.”
Despite the absence of the traditional Mimosa Festival from the 2022 calendar, activities are still offered, based on this delicate flower that brings such good spirits!
