Tanneron – a hilltop village in the South of France
The kingdom of mimosa, Tanneron is one of the hilltop villages of the Pays de Fayence area
In the Var, French Riviera-Côte d’Azur, home of your four-star campsite Les Jardins de La Pascalinette®, you’ll find sunshine in the sky AND in the trees!
You probably thought the sun only shone in the sky in Provence? Well you’d be wrong! It also shines in the hills of the Var, where it warms our hearts with its radiant yellow colour and regales our noses with its heady, bewitching scent. Tanneron boasts the most beautiful show of mimosa in the Var (and France!) and regularly honours its iconic flower with flower parades and mimosa fairs.
Unfortunately, if you’re visiting the campsite in summer you won’t get a chance to see the mimosa in bloom as the varieties that grow in the forests between Bormes-les-Mimosas and Grasse flower from December to March. But there is a “4 seasons” variety you can admire at a specialist nursery in Tanneron.
