Mirleft was occupied by the French military until the 1950’s. The remains of the castle they built on the hill overlooking the whole area is now a tourist attraction. It has stunning views. After the departure of the French military, travellers from all over Europe started arriving in Mirleft. Most would drive and camp on the beach or stay in one of the small hotels. There was no electric or running water. Candles, gas lamps, car batteries, charcoal and well water were used.
