This year’s summer number of Country Life International is the perfect place to start if you’re thinking of buying a property overseas. This summer features some beautiful houses for sale on the French Riviera, and a guide to property for sale in Sardinia.

We also investigate the changing face of the Monaco property market, and identify some excellent properties for sale for under £500,000. 

You can also win a week’s luxury holiday in Portugal in this summer’s magazine, and read our hilarious interview with Richard E Grant, who shares his love of his holiday home in France. 

Lush gardens in Mallorca attract green-fingered buyers to this Balearic island, while Bordeaux has enjoyed an extraordinary renaissance in its property market. 

A private jet might well be a better way to travel to avoid delays when travelling to and from your overseas property – and we identify some extremely unusual, innovative designs in some houses for sale from Tuscany to Hawaii.
