Apprx 3km away is the 13th century village of Bormes-les-Mimosas with its narrow streets and arches. The village is very high up set above the coast in the hills and is a picturesque clutter of colour-washed houses, covered passageways (cuberts) and vaulted interiors. The village takes its name from the abundant bright yellow vanilla-scented Mimosa trees that flower throughout the village in early spring.
In summer, the village becomes awash with Bougainvillea and Geraniums, a really fabulous spectacle. From its high perched position, Bormes offers a festival of colours accompanied by fantastic sea views.
There is a very good market in Bormes on Wednesday mornings.
From the village there are breathtaking views across the Levant and Port Cros Islands, the pretty port of La Favière and of course the sweeping bay of Le Lavandou.
Bormes-les-Mimosas also considers itself to be a centre of scuba diving and is very near the National Park of Port-Cros which is studded with shipwrecks. In the vicinity plenty of other watersports are available, such as parascending, water skiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing and sea fishing.
There is 22km of coast, alternating sandy beaches and pretty inlets and coves to explore where the colour of the sea ranges from pale turquoise to a deep cobalt. Among the beaches are the charming Fort of Bregancon, Cabasson, Pellegrin and Estagnol. The coast line around Cabasson is unspoilt and has several forest walks.
Le Lavandou (approx 4km) is a seaside resort and has fine sweeping sandy beaches. It has a busy yacht marina with fishing boats still plying their trade; a fish market is held there every morning. The seafront is thriving in summer with stalls along the promenade selling arts and crafts. There are many restaurants and the town is a-buzz well into the night. From the marina are regular ferry crossings to the islands of Porquerolles, Port Cros and Le Levant.
There is an excellent market every Thursday morning.
There is also a long sandy beach at La Favière (5km), which is the busy seaside area of Bormes, with a marina, diving club and plenty of shops and restaurants. La Favière hosts a Mimosa festival in February. La Favière has a market Saturday morning and Monday evening in July and August.
