No regrets

Owned by Édith Piaf from the 1950s until her untimely death in 1963, Les Parettes in Plascassier on the Cote D’Azur is a 19th century bastide that has been completely renovated. It has been used as a holiday rental and wedding venue and is now for sale for £3.5 million ($5.2 million or €4.5 million).

Previously marketed for the much higher price of £5.4 million ($7.9 million or €6.9 million) in 2012, ‘French National Treasure’ Piaf retreated to the property after the death of her married, boxer lover, Marcel Cerdan, in 1949 and died there from liver cancer aged just 47. It now features 4,500 of living accommodation with four bedrooms and four bathrooms in the Provencal style main house, three guest suites and a two bedroom guardian’s cottage. It has a heated swimming pool with a pool house and summer kitchen, a gym and sauna, an all-weather tennis court and a boules court and stands in four acres of land. An additional two acres with planning permission for a double garage is available by separate negotiation.

  1. If I won the lottery tonight, I would most definitely start considering putting in an offer. It has everything one needs in a holiday home and the location is just right.

  2. The prospect of the French legal system and taxation is enough to put anyone off. I will not be suggesting this as an option for a holiday home to Mr Stocken.
