Mimosa Blooms on the French Riviera

A&K Travel Blogs

For those of you seeking the spring sun, the French Riviera is the perfect destination for you, even offering a glimpse of what summer has to offer in the form of the Mimosa plant. Having been imported from Australia in the mid-19th century by the 'English Lords' who discovered the Cote d'Azur, Mimosa acclimatised very well to the slopes of Tanneron and blooms in full spring.

The mimosa forests are in bloom from mid-February to mid-March and it is an ideal time to escape to the beautiful Mediterranean coastline. Stay in our stunning villa, La Bergerie de Tanneron located in the Tanneron hills, famous for their huge mimosa forests.  This 18th century original stone farmhouse is the ideal holiday home for a family or group of friends wanting privacy and a taste of country life near to the French Riviera, while being close to the main tourist attractions. The large secluded grounds of nearly five hectares comprise a salt-water swimming pool and a private tennis court.

The small village of Tanneron has a bakery, grocery store and a few cafes and restaurants.  Many villages organise Mimosa festivals, guided walks and mimosa festivals for you to explore their beauty.  There are even mimosa corso flower parades in some towns.
