Houses come in all different shapes and sizes with all manner of accompanying price tags to go with them. Logic would seem to dictate that the more money you have, the better the property you'll get. On a superficial level, this is probably true - the larger your budget, the more choice of size, spec and location you have - including being able to demand those extras like sea-views and swimming pools that we all like.
Still, we'd argue that it's what your A Place in the Sun represents that is most important when buying an overseas property, which is the opportunity to benefit from living more relaxed lives in warmer climates. Therefore, even if your budget doesn't extend to all the little extras you think you want or need - you shouldn't let this put you off making your home owning dreams come true.
With this in mind, we've handpicked our favourite bargain homes showcasing what £50,000 can buy you in a variety of worldwide locations. These houses may not come with private swimming pools or every mod con known to man, however, they're affordably-priced and have the potential to be wonderful homes. From beachside apartments in Bodrum to traditional cottages on the Greek island of Zante, there is a wealth of similarly priced properties listed at A Place in the Sun.
