Some years back the block of forest adjoining our garden was sold to a friend who lived nearby. She had just received a small inheritance and took advantage of the rough hand written board advertising the sale. If only I had seen it first I would have got there before her, but I didn’t.
Her idea was to one day build a small house on it but was told by the mairie that there was no chance of it being allowed such use so she moved away to the next village where she lives in, I think, very downmarket accommodation.
I have seen her a few times over the years and she has always resisted selling it though has offered free passage to my garden at no cost other than the notaire to protect me from any inheritance issue.
I now have a very good reason to purchase, not for access but as a separate unit albeit connected by a pedestrian gate and wonder what sort of money might persuade her. So does anybody know where I could get an idea of how much it might be worth? I think it is about one hectare.
