As leader of the Free French in the Second World War, General Charles de Gaulle, France’s president from 1959-69, spent time at Stafford Mansions in Stafford Place, SW1, where the Free French navy was headquartered.

Hathaways has a beautifully refurbished two-bedroom flat for sale there at £1.25 million that would make a perfect pied-à-terre.
