The latest issue of A Place in the Sun magazine goes on sale today, with some beautiful character homes in Italy from just £30,000.
We hunt out some bargain properties in Portugal and find out how one British couple successfully played the property ladder there to realise their dream of retiring to a mountainside property north of Oporto.
We meet British Architect Keith Gray and his family, who totally renovated their Turkish villa on the Bodrum peninsular and learn from Jon O'Shaughnessy, the British Consul in Sofia about life in rural Bulgaria and the expats who have made the move there.
We look at why the dire economic climate has left many property-buyers in hot water and talk to some people that might be able to help reclaim lost deposits.
