Bormes les Mimosas
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.
There is a small airport nearby, however it is not serviced by commercial flights. Commercial flights go to the larger nearby cities such as Nice, Toulon and Marseilles. There are no trains going directly to the city, but you can catch a connecting bus from either Nice or Toulon.
