This eight-bedroomed, five-bathroomed home called the 'Mas de St Croix' was owned by the infamous former Iraqi dictator. Located high in the olive groves above Grasse, near Cannes, It now sits deserted ransacked and ruined. It was abandoned after being confiscated during the first Gulf War. Squatters moved in, painted graffiti everywhere and set fire to rooms. Filthy mattresses still litter the bedroom floors. The wrought-iron gates are left open, allowing anybody to wander in and out. Its pond and swimming pool are clogged and the garden is full of weeds. It is now the property of the of the IRAQ government.
