In Chile, the Presidential retreat residence is the Palacio de Cerro Castillo, located in the beach city of Viña del Mar

Summer residences of the President of Finland

If the President of the United States had as many summer residences PER CAPITA as the Finnish president he would have 120 vacation houses.

Being Finland's head of state has its perks including three official residences. Each represents major periods in the nation's history and in the history of Finnish architecture.



(Summer) Kultaranta by architect Lars Sonk c1922 "National Romaticism"




(Summer) Mäntyniemi by architect Reima Pietilla "Finnish Modernism"



Presidentinlinna by architect Carl Ludwig Engel who designed most of neoclassical Helsinki.

(I'm not Finnish...obvious I suppose)

Presidential Palaces of Republic Indonesia.

Officialy there are 6 Presidential Palaces of Republic Indonesia. Two are in Jakarta and one in Jogjakarta are served as Official Residence and the Office of the President. Historically Jogjakarta was Indonesia's Capital in 1946-1949.

Other three Palaces are qualified to be called The Official Summer Residence of the President although Indonesia is a tropical nation with a year long summer.
Those Palaces (means Istana in Bahasa Indonesia) now are rarely use by president in any official duties and most used them in their vacation times.

1. Istana Bogor (Bogor Palace), Bogor, West Java, built in 1744


2. Istana Cipanas (Cipanas Palace), on the slope of Mount Gede, West Java, built in 1916



3. Istana Tampak Siring (Tampak Siring Palace), Bali, built in 1957.

You've posted this in the wrong thread

The occupant of Chequers is not the British Head of State.
