Prepare to embark on a journey to a lavish seaside villa in Brittany, a notable property owned by Gabriel Attal, the current Minister of National Education and Youth in France.
Location and History of the Villa
Positioned on the picturesque Île-aux-Moines in the Gulf of Morbihan, the villa projects an aura of tranquility. A structure that served as an oyster warehouse initially, it has been transformed into a tranquil beachfront haven and now features a lush garden with easy access to the sea.
Attal’s grandfather purchased this property in the 1980s as a holiday home. Eventually, it was passed down to Gabriel Attal, serving as a reminder of the many summers he spent there as a child, learning to swim and cycle. The villa holds a significant sentimental value for Attal, as it was also the place where his parents first met.
Amenities and Activities
A host of activities await visitors at the villa. Fishing, boating and drone flying are popular pastimes, not to mention the unlimited supply of rosé and spritz available for those who prefer a more relaxed approach.
The villa isn’t just a family retreat; it’s also a meeting point for Attal’s political colleagues. Among the noted visitors are Sacha Houlié, Pierre Person, Stéphane Séjourné, Aurore Bergé, Matthieu Orphelin, Franck Riester, Agnès Canayer, Anne-Christine Lang, Marie Lebec and Dacian Ciolos.
A group photo of these politicians enjoying their time at the villa caused quite a buzz on social media.
