    Heather Mills has bought a new house in village of Ukanc

    Residents in a peaceful Slovenian town where Sir Paul McCartney's estranged wife Heather Mills has bought a house are demanding the government scrap the deal because their new neighbour will ruin their peace and quiet.

    Led by the local mayor they claim that the sale will turn the village of Ukanc on the shore of Lake Bohinj was be the first step in becoming a second St Tropez.
    Slovenian authorities' sold the government-owned timber house in the heart of one of the country's best loved national parks to Heather Mills for just over 400,000 pounds. ($800,000.US approx )
    But people in the village of Ukanc said having her as a neighbour will ruin the peace and quiet of the region - and they fear an invasion of fans, paparazzi and possibly other celebrities that will now also want to share a similar address.
    She bought the house for exactly 407,000 pounds after putting in the highest bid for the property, beating a Slovenian firm that also wanted to purchase it.
    But locals say the government should never have sold the house to her.

    One villager told the local newspaper Slovenske Novice: "Nothing good will come of this. We expect trouble because all the kinds of star watchers and photographers will surround the village. There will be no peace here anymore."
    Mayor Franc Kramar said: "I'm against the sale of cultural and national heritage to foreigners.

    "I can't understand that the government has allowed foreigners to buy property inside the national park of Bohinj. Such a property should stay in Slovenian hands."

    He and many other locals are angry that the sale to the former Beatle's ex-wife went ahead at all and want it scrapped.
    Local man Miro Bokan, 25, said: "We will get no peace. Everyone is against it. People used to come here to enjoy the unspoilt countryside but now it will all be different."
    An Irish man who has a holiday home in the area, 52-year-old Noel Brady from Dublin, said Mrs Mills' arrival would not be good for locals.
    He said: "It would be the prefect escape for her but no one here is going to be happy about it. I came here for the unspoiled nature but I don't think that will be the same now." Neda Todorovic, another villager, added:
    "This is one of the last corners of Europe that is not polluted or ruined with buildings and roads. This is the greatest treasure of this place. It is sad that Slovenia is selling its beauty.

    "This is probably the most beautiful part of the country."
    The locals may not have long to worry. The news that the house has passed into private hands has given renewed energy to a legal case from a British family who claim it was stolen from them by the Nazis, then handed to the communists before finally passing into Slovenian hands.
    Dana Stankovic, an 84-year-old widow who lives in Cornwall, and whose father built the house in 1937, says she will start a court case to claim back the house from the Government Stankovic said: "I will never give up my fight to get the house back. It is my heart and soul. It means everything to me. We will do all we can to get it returned. It belongs to my family."
  2. I have to say - and the fact I don't personally like what I know about her - I can see it from their view. They've seen what has happened in other areas and obviously worry that loads of people are now going to buy houses in the area and the locals will be pushed out.
  3. Foreigner or not, the house was for sale and she was the highest bidder. Many places in Eastern Europe are still ruled by a mighty dollar. Government doesn't care as long as it profits from the sale. It's sad but true.
  4. I wonder how well that would go over if she were of a different race, religion, etc. And $800,000 for that???? It looks like something in the appalachian mountains.
  5. She's not THAT much of a celeb.

    It's like a neighborhood not wanting Lance Bass move in.

    and yeah, that looks like my cabin from the YMCA summer camp I went to when I was 11.
  6. i truly doubt she will be spending much time there, if i had her money i don't think it would be the 1st choice. i think they should get over it, and be thankful that someone paid that amount of money to live in slovenia.

    her 15 minutes of fame are just about over
  7. What a great house!!!
  8. Just what Heather and her daughter need....more drama.
  9. She make not be that big of a celeb in the US but in Britain? Um yeah. And their media is ruthless and makes ours look like kittens.

    That chalet is adorable and I can see the mountains in the background, AND it's on a lake. I say she got a screaming deal. I bet it's so beautiful there.

    If I was a local...if I was ME. No matter where I lived I wouldn't want a celebrity moving in my neighborhood. Who wants papparazzi and celeb stalkers in their front yard? Not me!
  10. They needn't worry, who's interested in her these days anyway.
  11. hmmm......for some reason, I can't see Heather Mills in THAT house!!!!
  12. i am not a fan of that house. sort of scary looking.
