Follow the Route du Mimosa!
Every year, the mimosa flowering period is eagerly awaited by nature lovers and those who want a beautiful shot. The cradle of mimosa-growing, the Massif du Tanneron is clothed in a delicate yellow robe from December to the end of February. You have three months to walk along the hiking trails and breathe in the delicate and very special smell of mimosa. One of these trails is called “Coeur de Mimosa” and takes you from mimosa plantations to the forest of wild mimosa trees! You may not be able to go to Japan to admire the cherry trees in bloom, but you can make the most of the winter sun and mild temperatures of the south of France to plan a gentle weekend. Mimosa is a highlight of the winter season and is celebrated as a festival. Tourists and locals mingle during typical events for an immersive trip in Provence: there’s a mass in Provencal, the Children’s carnival, folk dancing, and flower-decked processions – entertainment for all ages.
