The mystery quest
The mystery villa to be found was Villa La Surprise.
It is a very beautiful Art Nouveau style villa, which has now disappeared. It was built in 1903 by the workshops of Hector Guimard, for the Nozal family.
It was used in 1942 by the German army to install an aerial battery and suffered damage during the war. It was then destroyed in the 1950s. All that remains today is its garage, still located at number 20, avenue Aristide Briand.
