A privileged view on the Golden Islands
The Fort de Brégançon long remained under the authority of the Counts of Provence before integrating the royal domain of France in 1246 following the union of Béatrix of Provence with Charles of Anjou, brother of King Louis IX. Militarily declassified in 1919, the fort was rented by the French State to wealthy individuals, including the industrialist and politician Robert Bellanger, before its affiliation to the Ministry of Cultural Affairs. As the resort residence of the presidents of the French Republic since 1968, it offers its occupants a privileged view of the islands of Levant and Port-Cros, known as the Golden Islands.
