Jump to: navigation, search

Bormes les Mimosas is a small city in the French Riviera. The city is protected under French preservation laws to retain most of its medieval charm. Bormes is known for its omnipresent flowers, the castle ruin and the church residing on top of the mountain on which the city also resides. Nearby are many great (although some are densely populated during August) beaches, the Iles d’Or islands and the famous Port Cros national park. Port Cros is said to be one of the great places to dive in the Mediterranean.
