Nicolas Sarkozy looks carefree while relaxing with his model wife Carla Bruni in the Côte d’Azur

Sarkozy, who was president between 2007-2012, looked at ease in crystal blue clear water as he swam around. Showing off his athleticism, the politician was also spotted cycling as well as climbing through rocks. Meanwhile, model and singer Carla, 53, who married ex-French president Nicolas in 2008, kept her accessories minimal – adding just a pair of black sunglasses to her beachy look.
