Overseas property: The best of the rest
Wednesday 25 February 2009
Rock star: Admiral’s Place, Gibraltar
They say: A substantial, four-bedroomed house in a converted former naval hospital, which retains many original features.
We say: Tiny Gibraltar, a British overseas territory, is becoming increasingly popular but homes here are scarce. This attractive conversion also has a clifftop pool with panoramic views of the Mediterranean.

Going for golf: Belek Golf Village, Belek, Turkey
Price: from £137,000
They say: A quality development of two- to four-bedroom villas and apartments in Turkey’s golf capital.
We say: Turkey still offers good value, though these properties are at the high end. The beach is five minutes away on the resort’s private boat.

Kitted out in style: Silver Reef, St Kitts
Price: from £249,000
They say: Less than five minutes from the famous Frigate Bay, this eco-resort is designed in colonial style and built to be as sustainable as possible.
We say: St Kitts is one of the prettiest islands in the West Indies. These spacious properties have a stunning location with views of the Caribbean and Atlantic.
