Fort de Bregancon, Bormes-Les-Mimosas
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
The Fort de Brégançon served as the official retreat of the President of France from 1968 to 2013. It will become a national monument.LocationIt rests on a small island off the French Mediterranean coast. It is connected by a short causeway to the mainland and lies in the commune of Bormes-les-Mimosas in the Var department.HistoryThe fort became a presidential residence in 1968 during the presidency of Charles de Gaulle (1890–1970).It was used only once by President Nicolas Sarkozy and his ex-wife Cecilia. It was also only used once by President François Hollande and his partner Valérie Trierweiler, in the summer of 2012, when it was discovered it wasn't sufficiently private, and too easy of a target for papparazzi.In October 2013, it was announced it would become a national monument open to the public, in an effort to reduce state expenditure. Indeed, the maintenance and staffing of the property cost £200,000 a year. Instead, La Lanterne, a hunting lodge in Versailles will become the official retreat of the French President.To visit Fort de Bregancon and other attractions in Bormes-Les-Mimosas, use our Bormes-Les-Mimosas family vacation planner.

Our guide Christmas did us spend a good time: more local, and absolutely cultural angle, it really touched me, the child of Cabasson... This exceptional places is not glitzy, but his positioning on the rocky spur above the big blue is extra-ordinary...
