Sir Clement Freud, his villa in Luz, and his alleged interest in underage girls has popped to the top of the ‘news’ stories recently.
In an ITV documentary from 15/6/16, Exposure – Abused and Betrayed : A Life Sentence, two women accused Freud of paedophilia. A third came forward soon after.
For the moment, all I want to establish is where the villa is. Here is a photo of the villa from the current press.
The location of the villa has already been identified in the media. Here is the graphic. Please note, this is slightly inaccurate. The villa is somewhat to the north and on the opposite side of the road.
I had worked out from the first photo where the villa should be, so I went off and Googled it. Here is what I found.
Now, it struck me that the sugar cube structure, with no windows, placed on top of the building was a tad odd. So I enquired about it.
Here is the best explanation I have heard. It is a store room. It seems if you get permission to build a store room, it makes it easier to then get permission to build another level on top.
The road beside the villa has already been featured in the Madeleine McCann story. It is how one gets from Luz to the top of the cliffs to the east. The photo of Kate and Gerry jogging not too long after the disappearance comes from somewhere along this road.
