In this issue...

In this month's issue of A Place in the Sun magazine we're investigating how to make the most of bailout bargains with an in depth look at the hardest hit markets - Portugal, Spain and Greece.

Then, in a world away from bargain property, we catch up with ex England cricketer and beefy batsman Mike Gatting and learn more about his spectacular villa on Royal Westmoreland in Barbados.

Elsewhere, we're jetsetting as usual, finding out what's available in Lake Annecy for a couple with a £250K budget and discovering more about the property markets in Kalkan, Sicily, Sardinia and Dubrovnik. And Amanda Lamb tells us why it's so important to get independent legal advice.

Comprehensive legal advice is something that unfortunately could become all too necessary for those looking to rent out their holiday home on the Canary Islands with the news that the local authorities are clamping down on a little known law which prevents short term rentals. We look at the facts and investigate what the impact could be on the housing market.

Enjoy this month's issue.
