their love and family vacation in Greece

This is a large part of the Sarkozy clan, which went on a nine-day cruise. A first for the former president, who has never spent a vacation with his three boys and daughter together. The host of this family vacation, Karla, has only one desire: harmony around her husband

Could she have imagined it? Twenty years ago, Carla Bruni was preparing for the release of her first album with the naivety of beginners. Would you find a review of his song? Were they going to seduce a niche audience or invade radio? She honestly didn’t know. She, a former model, did not have a card. One that allows you to be taken seriously, to be treated with kindness by the “important” media.

So Carla gave her first interviews, staunchly defending the songs that spoke of her intimate love, the flash of passion and the devastation that follows. A 33-year-old young woman who knew the attractiveness of a smile like a body revealed herself like never before. With disarming sincerity and charm. She was then in love with Raphael Enthoven, the father of her son Aurelien, whom she had just given birth to. Hosting Marianne Faithfull in her large apartment on the Boulevard Saint-Germain, she received reporters sitting on her coffee table. When she was asked about her future career, Karla replied: “I don’t know what life has in store for me. And that’s what makes it so exciting: this eternal leap into the unknown. »

Twenty years later, we find her in paradise: on a boat sailing from island to island around the Peloponnese, accompanied by her entire renewed tribe and Nicolas Sarkozy, the man of her life (and independent director of the Lagardere group, owner of Paris Match). ). It was she who wanted to organize this trip together: it is the first time since his meeting with the president of the republic in 2007, when he went on vacation with four children. Twelve people flew to Athens on July 13, accompanied by two bodyguards assigned to serve the former president of the republic. Jean Sarkozy, his wife Jessica and their two children, Solal and Lola, Pierre Sarkozy and his companion, Louis Sarkozy and his fiancee Nathalie Husik, Julia Bruni-Sarkozy accompanied by one of their friends, Nicolas Sarkozy and Carl Bruni since they arrived in Greece boarded a yacht rented for nine days and capable of holding all the pitch. Heading first to the canal, then to the Gulf of Corinth, where every evening the ship docked at the mainland.

After several days of cabotage, the tribe made a stop on the island of Cephalonia before sailing to Zakynthos. Far from the Cyclades and tourist islands, the Sarkozys wanted a vacation that would be interesting, separating swimming for the woman and children and reading on deck for the gentleman. At the age of 67, the fiery former head of state was forced to do the unthinkable: leave his phone away from him. And enjoy your family as much as possible. Because 2022 was not the most peaceful year for the former tenants of the Elysée Court after two high-profile trials in 2021 in which the former president was convicted and challenged. “Throughout this legal period, Carla was his support,” says a relative of the couple. She did everything to make life easier for herself, convinced that the judges were still ready to do anything to get her. »

Having officially retired from political life, Nicolas Sarkozy, nevertheless, eagerly followed the presidential campaign. With Valerie Pecress close to the plate, he didn’t see fit to endorse her publicly, a sentiment borne out by the 4.78% the Republican candidate received. In private conversations, the former head of state says Emmanuel Macron is overwhelmed by events – the result of the parliamentary election in support – and thinks he would do better to listen to him more. “Even if the political struggle is behind him, he still cheers for the fate of France, supports a close friend of the ex-president. Currently undecided, he is not disappointed with Macron, but not convinced. He realizes that his next speech will be important. »

Karl does not get involved in politics. She sees how her husband is addicted to phone conversations with his former lieutenants and watches him watch the news channels, tying political appointments as before. But, unlike Francois Hollande, Nicolas Sarkozy refuses most invitations to the media – believing that the words of the former President of the Republic should be rare and, first of all, “useful”. Because, in fact, Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy are convinced that they faced a clear injustice. “The court machine allowed the poison of doubt to settle in our lives,” Carla told us last January. So he and I face each other. And to cope, we act as if nothing happened. We don’t talk about deadlines, they don’t exist in our history. Each day has enough of its own troubles. »

He resigned himself to the unthinkable: he left his phone far from him

Carla knows that a man, no matter how powerful, can be swayed or shaken overnight. Nicolas Sarkozy has the art of never backing down. On March 1, 2021, she was by his side to hear the trial court convict him. Since he was there on January 26, 2022, at the last concert of his tour, at Olympia. “You have to understand the meaning of their story through absolute love and boundless respectful admiration,” deciphers one of their relatives. Together they went through incredible things and terrible trials. And since neither he nor she is the type to speak up when something is wrong, they make sure to always look good. The convict Nicholas never stopped Carly from singing. Vice versa. Sometimes she even talks about her pains and her colors in songs – Carla recently wrote a piece called “Injustice” in which she tells her four truths to this universe that “wants to destroy them”. She has not yet decided whether she will include it on her next album…

Music will be actively talked about since the beginning of the school year: the singer is starting to think about her seventh CD, which she would like to release in 2023. A former head of state, he takes on his next challenge. “When he’s writing, you shouldn’t talk to him,” she told us. It’s a bit like Zola at home…” After Le temps des tempests and Promenades, Nicolas Sarkozy has just started writing the second volume of his memoirs in Greece. “It was good for him to be around his four children,” continues this close friend of the couple. He had never spent so much time with all of them before. And he knows that it was Karla who made it possible. Willingly modest, Nicolas Sarkozy is proud of the careers of his three boys. After a brief political career in Hauts-de-Saint-Jean, he decided to devote himself to his work as a lawyer at Realyze, a firm founded by Nicolas Sarkozy with Michel Leibovitch and Arnaud Claude in 1987. He also teaches commercial law at Paris XII University. Pierre continues to produce music in the world of hip-hop. What allows his father to tell him all the bad things he thinks about rappers… As for Louis Sarkozy, he is preparing for marriage with Natalie. Cecilia and Nicholas’ son is due to get married next October.

And then there is Julia. A 10-year-old girl, a gorgeous blonde, is a ray of sunshine for her parents. As if “she is the opposite of her father’s temperament”, we smile in the couple’s entourage. “She never gets angry and even tries to soften it. It is enough for him to see her to feel a father’s pride for his daughter. »

Recently, Carla was approached by the Gims team with a request to participate in the rapper’s next album.

It was with her that the Sarkozys returned to their Paris home on July 22. If Carla wanted to go see the Rolling Stones at the Launcechamp Racecourse on Saturday the 23rd, she gave it up because of love. She did not want to involve Nicholas in such an event. Aurelien liked it. On the 25th, the Sarkozys went to the island of Formentera in Spain. With his friend Christian Clavier, this time waiting to get to Cap Negre, starting August 1, and the Bruni-Tedeschi family estate. “Nicolas likes this place. He can ride his bike in the morning, people leave him alone, offer him a glass of water while Carla rebuilds the world with her friends. “They will go head-to-head at the Ramatuelle festival either for the work “Le vertige de Marilyn” performed by Isabel Adjani, or for the concert of Calogero, with whom Carla has already worked, scheduled for August 12.

Pursue the natural, it returns at the end of the guitar neck… Carla writes for herself and for others. Recently, she was approached by the Gims team with a request to participate in the rapper’s next album. She also re-signed with Barclay, one of Universal’s record labels. And if she is willing to sing at private events, she hopes to be able to go on a real concert tour of France – the last one was cut short due to a health crisis.
Always invited by luxury brands such as Balenciaga or Bulgari, Carla Bruni at the age of 54 likes to spend time on the catwalks of her life, and her friends are the top models of the time. She was the only one who knew how to invent a new life after experiencing love on a roller coaster. She admits she’s surprised by the ease with which she lives now – even if she pulls out her claws as soon as you get too close to ‘her person’. This “little cheetah” that only she knows how to “coax, giving him something to dream about”, as she sang in her last album.

Gone are the days of doubts and questions. From now on Carla Bruni assumes. The watchtower of a shaky but strong family, she is also the rock of a man who knows that in life and in death he can rely on her. And this is the best of their victories.
