How wise you are Bob.    Because of the Napoleonic law which still exists here regarding inheritance, there are many pieces of land owned by many people or under litigation as to who actually owns what.   I know this only too well because of my children's inheritance.   They own a beautiful walnut grove (with a stream running along one boundary) and a few olive trees in the north of the island.   As neither of them are able to find work here, the land lies fallow.   They wished to offer the use of the fertile land to a distant cousin, but other family members were not happy.   I think I have been spurred on to encourage them to just give their distant cousin the go ahead and stuff the rest of them!
