In this issue...

Chilly isn't it? This month's issue of A Place in the Sun magazine is packed full of places you can warm yourself and in the case of Egypt, there are quality apartments available from only £45,000, that's why Agnes Bell from Galshiels went on our property hunt to the land of the pyramids and winter-sun. Catch up with Agnes to see if she found what she was looking for.

We also look at what good-value property is available in Malta taking a look at best-buys in Sliema and St Julians. And if you already own a property overseas, do you really need a license in some countries to let it out? We dig around to give you the facts and make sure you don't come unstuck. Plus there's plenty more advice too in Any Questions, from tax and pensions information through to the best immigration advice for the US.

Our Property Spotlight this month is Portugal, we choose a property and outline all the purchase costs, legal fees and likely ongoing costs with rental yields to show you exactly what you can expect to make – or spend – each year on your overseas property.

More properties, more pictures, more advice and more insight for anyone thinking of buying property abroad, A Place in the Sun will take your mind off the cold and fire your imagination.
