As the temperature dips here in the UK, you'll forgive us for casting our gaze to warmer climes, and picking some of our favourite properties for sale around the Med.
From Cyprus, this white-washed stone villa in Famagusta is decorated in a traditional Mediterranean style, boasts a private roof terrace with sea views and is priced at a very reasonable £134,000. If you still want sea views but would rather be in Greece, you'll love the terrace of the two-bed house on the island of Andros.
Over in Turkey, there's a beautiful two-bed, two-bath apartment in Bodrum on a complex with two communal pools and spectacular gardens - all for under £100,000. And last but not least, four lovely Maltese properties. The character home in Qrendi has very distinctive stone features that are bound to impress, and it's for sale for less than £225,000.
