Massages and facial treatments are offered to children for a moment of magical relaxation. Colin Maillard’s principle is to focus on the well-being of the child. It is not a cosmetic brand that treats the needs of the skin, but which, through emotional development, provides overall relief.
The selected fragrances have a direct and positive influence on the child’s behaviour for a relaxing and reassuring effect. The choice was made with the help of a psychologist on the basis of a specific study. The aim is to awaken the senses and to lead through play to an identification of emotions and better management.

ON THE ROUTE DU MIMOSA
The Route du Mimosa stretches for 130 km, and we recommend taking it from January to March – the season when the mimosa flowers. Mimosa is the real symbol of the Côte d’Azur in winter, just as lemons are, and you’re sure to be amazed by this colourful itinerary that follows the blue of the sea and the yellow of the sun – the colours of our hotel!
The Route du Mimosa crosses eight municipalities: Grasse – Pégomas – Le Tanneron – Mandelieu la Napoule – Saint-Raphael – Sainte Maxime – Le Rayol-Canadel and Bormes-les-Mimosas. Each is a charming stopover that ranks as one of the most beautiful venues on the Côte d’Azur. Below we introduce you to three villages located at the beginning, middle and end of the route.
Le Tanneron with its 22 hamlets nestling in the heart of the massif 516 meters above sea level. Here you’ll discover a vast expanse dotted with wild and cultivated mimosas, whose velvet, fragrant yellow balls explode in a natural, hilly landscape. Guided walks with naturalists are available.
Le Rayol Canadel, where Le Bailli de Suffren Hotel is located, is a village full of charm and a gentle way of life in a natural, well-preserved environment.
This is a site of great beauty, where the wooded hills of the Corniche des Maures disappear into the azure-blue water of the Mediterranean opposite the magnificent Îles d’Or. Close to Le Bailli de Suffren are the Jardins de la Méditerranée, well-known to lovers of green spaces.
Bormes-les-Mimosas, where the origins of the village date back to the 12th century, is without doubt the mimosa capital of the Var. There are no less than 90 species waiting to be discovered on a range of walks high up in the hills with a bird’s eye view of the sea below and the port of La Favière.
THE VAR: A PRIME LOCATION FOR BLACK TRUFFLES.
Truffles are considered the “black diamond” of Provence. Also known as “rabasses” in Provencal, they are a noble product that grow in rich terroirs. Provence alone produces 80% of all the truffles produced in France. They are found in the heart of this picturesque region between the mountains and the sea.
It was back in 1810 that the first “truffle farmer” had the brilliant idea of planting acorns that he had collected under truffle oaks. Nowadays, between 10 and 30 tonnes of black truffles are harvested every year. Although the harvest begins in November, it is not until January that the truffle reaches its ideal maturity.
With its round but imperfect shape, the black truffle gives off a captivating fragrance that is highly sought-after by anyone who appreciates fine culinary flavours. Priced at between 100 and 1,000 euros a kilo, truffles can be found not just in the top Michelin-starred restaurants but also in many family homes, cooked in omelettes, for example.
There are a few precautions to take when preparing truffles. First of all, cook the truffles as little as possible so you do not impair the aroma, and take them out at least 12 hours before preparing them. Don’t add seasoning that is too strong, and use fat to release the truffle’s full flavour.
Don’t hesitate to try out a day discovering black truffles with a truffle farmer. This day out is devoted to digging up or harvesting truffles, with a meal in the form of a “snack” made – of course – from black truffles. All the secrets of the truffle will be revealed to you: how to choose them, clean and cook them.
The list of the best places to find black truffles includes the weekly winter market for black truffles in Aups, held from November to March every year. You’ll have realised by now that the black truffle is a mysterious and unique product worthy of being discovered and savoured.
