Standing in a hectare of grounds on the outskirts of the picturesque mediaeval village of Bormes-les-Mimosas the Domaine du Mirage is an introduction to a more relaxed lifestyle. The hotel offers breathtaking views over the Iles d Or particularly from the rooms that face directly south whilst those with terraces have their own deckchairs and parasols. Colonnades balustrades and pastel colours all contribute to the Victorian charm of the hotel which is set against a backdrop of palm trees and Mediterranean vegetation. Quiet areas and a pavilion for meditative moments are perfect for an afternoon nap. The restaurant next to the swimming pool offers a tempting range of dishes made with fresh market produce.
