A stunning home on the French Riviera that was once owned by Edith Piaf is on the market for almost £4million.
The French singer was best known for her songs ‘Non, je ne regrette rien’, ‘La vie en rose’ and ‘La foule’.
She bought the four-bedroom property in Grasse on the French Riviera in the 1950s and lived there until her death from liver cancer in 1963, at the age of 47.

The extensive grounds boast a tennis court, an outdoor swimming pool and a pool house
She bought the property following the heartbreaking death of the love of her life, married boxer Marcel Cerdan, in 1949, past reports have claimed.
He died in a plane crash in October of that year while flying from Paris to New York City to meet her.
The refurbished property on the south east coast of France is surrounded by countryside, being between the two pretty villages of Mougins and Valbonne.
The grounds are extensive and include a tennis court, an outdoor swimming pool and a pool house.
In addition, there are three separate guest suites and a two-bedroom guardian’s cottage.
The landscaped gardens include a lawn area with Mediterranean shrubs, mature trees and enough space for a helicopter to land.
The main living area has wooden ceiling beams and pretty exposed stone walls
The kitchen includes a large stone archway that leads to a dining area and staircase
Plenty of light floods into the stunning home in Grasse on the French Riveria
Inside of the property, there is a stone archway separating the kitchen and dining room, as well as exposed stone walls in the living area.
There is pretty floor tiling throughout much of the house, with wooden ceiling beams and large doors opening out to the garden.
Carlton International, the estate agents handling the sale, said: ‘The property makes the perfect family home, ideal for entertaining.’
It added: ‘This was the former home of one of the most famous, internationally renowned french singers of the twentieth century.
‘It is a stunning property in the heart of the countryside, enjoying complete quiet.’
And buying agent Henry Pryor said: ‘Properties with this history are always going to create a stir, especially on the French Riviera.
‘The agent’s problem won’t be getting someone to view it, but holding back the tour buses who would like to see it.’
