If you're looking for a medieval village with fine sea views, plenty of flowers and fine dining restaurants on cobbled lanes, then Bormes les Mimosas is for you.
With plenty of gourmet restaurants to try, this sleepy little hillside village is made even prettier by the careful nurturing of blooming flowers throughout the year. The mimosa tree after which the village is named, blossoms from January to March.
In terms of things to see, there is a medieval ruined castle, sadly not open to the public, artisan shops and a market. The closest beach (family-friendly) is at La Faviere, where you can also find a marina and a diving club.
There's not much to be said about the nightlife in Bormes-les-Mimosas, although the streets are filled with the music of buskers on summer evenings and there are some nice terrace cafes and bars to enjoy some aperitifs and the wonderful view before heading to dinner. If you're fancying a night at the clubs, head to Saint Tropez
Bormes les Mimosa has several budget hotels where you can stay, offering simple bedrooms with sea views.
