A Little disappointing
Sep 2021
Whilst the building was very interesting with some spectacular views I would have preferred more about the over 2,000 year history associated with the site than looking at a series of photos of how each room looked during the timer of different recent Presidents.

presidential fort

This is on a gorgeous beach. ... You can when the boss is not on holiday, walk round and visit. Last year it was the setting for the meeting between Presidents Macron and Putin. It has a well known neighbour Carla Bruni who has a beautifull villa.

Very interesting visit
Aug 2018 • Friends
we visited the fort twice with different persons and a different guide each time.
Although the overall information given by the guides was similar, each one added his or her own touch, which made the comments more interesting.
Only 20 or so persons are allowed in each group, with a very precise appointment for each visit, and therefore booking is an absolute must.
We highly recommend.

Interesting visit

This is the summer residence of President Macron of France. It is an interesting place but be prepared for the tour to last 2.5 hours with no toilet facilities. It would have been helpful if there was an English translation of the tour, either written or through headphones. Would have liked to purchase a brochure but non available. Entrance fee reasonable at 10€.

very interesting and so worth for the price

We were in winter, very lovely walk through St. Tropez and then up the stairs. Very well kept fortress and things to see inside and a very lovely view from up there. I definitely recommend visiting it, but maybe in summer it is quite hot climbing all those stairs, we were in St. Tropez in summer but didn't have power to go up under the scorching sun. There is a parking place nearby, so if u come by car u go directly there first, not down to St.Tropez parking place.

Well worth a visit

One can only visit as part of a guided tour, and this must be booked either from the Tourist Office in Bormes-les-Mimosas or via the internet. There are simple guides in various languages included in the entry price, but the guided tour is in French.
The interior is surprisingly simple compared with the chateaux further north, but comfortable nevertheless. There is a bus from the car park and the overall time for the tour, including the obligatory stop in the Fort's shop, was 2 hours.

Interesting place, but a terribly boring giude
Aug 2017 • Family
Kids go free while Britain is still in the EU!

It was a windy day so we thought something a bit more cultural would be a nice change. We booked tickets online and turned up at the gate at the booked time, but there was a bit of a manyana approach to the start of the tour. Luckily, a gorgeous beach with an ice cream cart was just a few yards away.

The Fort is quite an interesting place - only opened to the public a few years ago. It is quite restricted - the guide keeps a careful eye on where everyone is - but that wasn't a problem.

We did all get quite bored during the tour of the rooms. My French is just about good enough to get the drift of the talk (although we definitely missed bits) and probably as good as our guide's English.

So we thought we had misunderstood when the guide invited us all to look at the carpet in the dining room and showed in some detail some markings. It took me a little while to realise it wasn't markings but simply the line where two bits of carpet had been joined together. The guide spent a surprising amount of time telling us about that as if it was a really interesting fact. As I said, I might have missed something important - perhaps some big diplomatic incident had occurred which had left to a piece of the carpet being replaced. But, as far as I could tell, it was just where two bits of carpet had been joined.

Despite that, the Fort is definitely worth a trip.

Beautiful sight

Take the time to walk on the beach and view the fort before walking up. It's a lovely walk. The views are gorgeous. There's parking very near by. And the little snack restaurant is very good.

This is an interesting attraction. The summer residence of the President gives a fascinating perspective. Commentary in French only but fairly easy to follow.
