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…
