Five dream homes abroad
The traffic light system for travel has been replaced with new, simplified rules in the UK, with one red list and a ‘rest of the world’ travel list.
The revised rules will be welcome news to those who want to get their dream of an overseas move back on track.
Trevor Leggett, Chairman of estate agent Leggett Immobilier, says the loosening of restrictions will lead to a leap in viewings and sales of homes in France.
“The French property market is hotter than at any time I can remember. We have pent up demand from British buyers who have not been able to travel easily between the two countries. Be warned though, you will face stiff competition from local buyers, so get your finances in place and be ready to move quickly,” he says.
In the meantime, we thought we’d head off on a dream house hunt and take a peek inside some of the most spectacular homes for sale across Europe right now – from exotic beachfront villas to palatial countryside retreats. Take a look.
This stunning Hacienda-style luxury villa built into the hills of Saint-Antoin, in Nice, overlooks the hills to the west, and the sea and Cannes to the south-west.
The sprawling eight-bedroom is an architectural masterpiece, with a statement curved staircase in the grand entrance hall and marble floors throughout.
