Bormes-les-Mimosas, France

Bormes-les-Mimosas

Our holiday village is situated in Bormes-les-Mimosas, a medieval town in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region that has won the gold medal in the Entente Florale Europe Competition in 2003. The old town is built on a hill with a superb view of the sea below and the village is like a beautiful garden. We were suitably enchanted and could understand why the French Presidents have a Summer residence in the Fort de Brégançon which is on a little island that is part of Bormes. David Cameron was offered a room in the fortress when his father died after suffering a stroke while holidaying in France.

The restaurants looked interesting but we had full board at our holiday village, buffet 3 times a day...And the food sucked.
