STAGE 1: BORMES-LES-MIMOSAS
Bormes-les-Mimosas, starting point on the Mimosa Route.
To celebrate the beginning of the calendar year, the village of Bormes-les-Mimosas, often considered one of the most beautiful flower villages in France, drapes itself in a yellow floral shawl. It’s simple, Bormes is THE mimosa capital of the Var and lists more than 90 species. This is obviously the natural starting point on the Mimosa Route. It’s difficult to miss since Fort de Brégançon, the holiday home of the President of the Republic, is in Bormes.
