Looking at various things on Wiki, I came across this gem. There's a forest to the west of the city, near Versailles called Foret de Marly. This is what wikipedia says about it:
"Historically, it was a hunting estate of the kings of France, then of the presidents of the Republic" (my italics).
Isn't that great?
I wonder if there's a republican bowling alley for the sole use of Obama, or a cabinet golf course for our prime minister.
