To explore throughout the year and especially in January and February, in the heart of winter, for its mimosa forest in bloom.

The Forest of the Grand Duke

The Forest of the Grand Duke in Mandelieu-La NapouleLocated on the lower slopes of the Tanneron, facing the sea, this municipal forest, whose management is entrusted to the O.N. F, offers a genuinely fantastic view at the top of the Côte d'Azur.

Information on the Forest of the Grand Duke:

The slopes and trails are arranged for your use and you will both benefit from exceptional views of the coastline, while discovering the specific forest flora of this massif.

Did you know?

The forest was completely destroyed on 31 July 1985 by a fire which travelled more than 1500 hectares in the Tanneron Massif between the Var and the Alpes Maritimes.

Since then, the municipality with the assistance of the O.N.F has committed to replenishment and the development of its forest heritage.
