The latter wanted to be able to relax away from the prying eyes of the Court of the Kingdom of France. For years, the French leaders have taken turns in this property so original. Staying there was the guarantee of rest and discretion. Although the apartment was much larger at the time of the king, it was partially destroyed during the Second World War. At the end of the 1980s, François Mitterrand learned of the existence of this underwater property and decided to restore it. Thus, the apartment was completely renovated, so that it can be lived in peace.
