Blond Estate Agent Marries Toothless Landowner

Recommended Posts


A wealthy French hermit, whose marriage to a glamorous Parisian estate agent made headlines around the world, cut her out of his will before he died.

The marriage of toothless land owner Marcel Amphoux to Sandrine Devillard, who was 25 years his junior, caused controversy in France after residents in Puy-Saint-Pierre turned out to boo and whistle throughout the ceremony.

They said they were concerned about Devillard's motivation for marrying the 68-year-old, who lived in a hut close to the Italian border without electricity or running water.



Marcel Amphoux died in a road accident in late November last year. A car driven by a friend of Sandrine's tumbled from a mountain road in heavy mist. Marcel was killed instantly. The friend was badly hurt.

Foul play was ruled out by the gendarmerie but the driver, now recovered, was tried in Gap last week for manslaughter. The verdict is expected on 27 June.

L'arroseur arrosé, as they say

So what happened, the wife's friend was encased in a rollcage that only covered the driver's side of the car plus a full face helmet and full racing harness?

And the shepherd's seatbelt was mysteriously not connected?
