This month we are all over the European continent in search of great property. We go looking for a dream home in 'The £150K Decision' scouring some of Britain's favourite overseas destinations, we take a closer look at why Brits love Brittany in Home from Home and pit Italy's Mediterranean islands of Sardinia and Sicily head-to-head.

Continuing our property in Florida series we're covering the central gulf; Tampa and Sarasota and find that there's much more than virgin beaches attracting families to this region where property prices are currently at a six-year low. We also round-up our property in Egypt series, with a look at the options on the Sinai coast.

And for the brave and hardy overseas explorer we discuss taking your work abroad with two venturesome couples in Portugal and New Zealand in 'Remotely Interested?'. We also consider health matters and how best to get medical cover in your new overseas home.

Our journey into alternative destinations take us on a hunt for the golf developments with a difference as we take a look at low-density golf resorts to find beautiful homes with stunning fairways and we'll also be checking in with some private residence clubs to see how this interesting concept is being redesigned for the curious city dweller.

Plus get the latest on the property situations in Spain and Dubai with our two features receiving word from the inside on the property, the market and everyone in it.

There's also the usual selection of great value properties from around the world, follow us this moth as we settle our spotlight on the Spanish island of Mallorca. And kicking it all off, A Place in the Sun: Home or Away? Jonnie Irwin and Jasmine Harman will be telling us about the most unusual and memorable homes they've ever visited in this month's comment.
