In a lovely site near the sea on the edge of the Dom forest, Bormes-les-Mimosas is ideal to slow down and recharge your batteries, with 19km/12mi of beaches stretching from Le Lavandou to La Londe. The French President's summer residence, Brégançon fort, can be glimpsed from La Favière beach. Eucalyptus, cypresses, oleanders, asters and especially mimosas perfume this medieval village clinging to the Maures mountainside. Best visited in February for the procession of mimosa floats.
