Mimosa Routes

It is from January to March that the Mediterranean coast reserves the most beautiful surprises. A perfumed surprise, bewitching, all gold and light, the blooming mimosa is a real enchantment! From the Corniche des Maures to the Massif du Tanneron, from the Var to the Alpes-Maritimes, slopes, valleys, hills and gardens are covered with downy flowers. To follow this road is to go through a world of colors and perfumes: the blue of the sky and the sea, the red ocher of the earth, an explosion of yellows and greens of the mimosa, all in the exhilarating scent of the acacias.

An itinerary of 130 kilometers and 8 stages of wonders allow you to enjoy this enchanting spectacle. Everything starts of course in Bormes-les-Mimosas where a famous flower corso is programmed each year in February where events or visits are offered along the route.

The mimosa route is the perfect opportunity to taste the beautiful winter of Provence through the forests and flowery gardens with a Mediterranean background.
