Bormes les Mimosas, France

If I was asked what I liked the most about Bormes les Mimosas, I would answer the light, the color and the flowers!  All the old houses are covered with pink tiles, the streets are lined with flowers and the Mediterranean medieval village, with its castle ruins and ramparts, offers a panoramic view of the plains and the lles d’Or (golden islands).

One of the most florally decorated towns of France, Bormes les Mimosas is often compared to a Provencal nativity scene due to its ancient village. The village won the 2003 Gold Medal awarded by the Entente Florale. There are flowers everywhere!
