I have just got back from a great family holiday on the French island of Ile de Re (just off the French west coast) – it is totally stunning. But never have I felt so poor. Every Brit we met owned loads of houses – the classic moment was when one person said “we own too many – must get rid of some of them”. Now, as a person who partially owns one, who is the best legacy prospect – me or the wealthy? I still can’t make up my mind!
