In the latest issue of A Place in the Sun magazine we lend a hand to Shaun and Michelle Henders from Lancashire in their search for their perfect two-bed property in the Algarve, Portugal with a budget of £130,000.
We take a look at why Malta and Gozo have again become so popular for second home owners and why Brits are now buying properties in Turkey for a permanent home rather than just a holiday pad.
If you're buying abroad for the first time, we take a look at some schemes that let you try before you commit buying. We hear from one happy reader how her experience of buying off-plan in Cyprus was a positive one and find out how husband and wife team Martin and Chris Wilcock left the UK to open a gîte business in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
There's the usual round-up of overseas property news and comment from A Place in the Sun television presenter Amanda Lamb plus thousands of properties for sale from around the world.
