Bay watchers

Price: £1.4m
Agent: Quintessentially Estates
Tel: 0845 224 3658

We say: In a stunning hillside location, 2km from the medieval town of Begur, this home is just three years old and has cool, open-plan interiors and a pretty garden with infinity pool.

No Spain, no gain

Font de Sa Cala, Majorca, Spain
Price: £3.15m
Agent: Savills
Tel: 020-7016 3740

They say: A wonderful opportunity to buy a frontline property with direct access to the sea. The main house has 11 bedrooms and bathrooms, and extensive terraces. There is also a guesthouse in the grounds.

We say: The stunning location and sheer size of the property accounts for the high price, though the house is a tad dated and owners may want to do some renovation.
