A Second Home


Property, whether a home or the land it’s built on, is more than just an appreciating asset (most of the time), it can also be the basis for residency in an uncertain world.

And all the more reason why we love it. For this year’s show, the first under the management of Luxury Property Collections, we bring you some of the most sensational homes on the planet. They gaze out over waters from Swiss lakes to the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean, on islands as diverse as Mauritius and Long Island, from Porto to Dubai.

With such a wide variety of locations, the prices vary too. After all, what may cost a few million in the Hamptons can be just half a million in an equally desirable location closer to home. But what marks out all of these locations is that they’re only likely to become more desirable in the years ahead.

So let’s pick out some highlights.

Algarve Portugal

There’s a reason why we return to the old favourites like the Algarve. This sun-drenched stretch of coast has it all. Easy to reach and with plenty to do all year, with low tax schemes and financially stable, Portugal is going from success to success. You may want to talk about ‘golden visas’ while you’re here.

This four-bedroom luxury villa in Praia da Luz, Algarve, Portugal, has nearly 5,000sqft of indoor living space, a private garden and pool. For sale with Portugal Best Invest, £2M

Second Home


As well as being warm, safe and welcoming, Mauritius also has tax advantages. Legend Hill resort in Black River, on the west coast of Mauritius includes restaurants, spa, fitness club, music room and kids’ entertainments. Your every requirement will be looked after by the concierge service. This generously proportioned and let’s be honest, really rather beautiful three-bedroom villa is for sale with Sotheby’s, at just £750,000


It used to be a tax haven that attracted the UK’s most talented and attractive people, and we suspect that it could be once again in the years ahead. This waterfront development at Lake Brienz near Interlaken in Switzerland opens in 2021 surrounded by pristine, untouched nature, over which it has panoramic views. One- to four-bedroom apartments are for sale with Florens

Florida, USA

With year-round warm weather and the easiest of access, central Florida has plenty of benefits even before we get to the fact that Disneyworld is on the doorstep. This large property at Bear’s Den community in Reunion Golf Club, Florida has eight bedrooms, a bathroom each, garage, games room, swimming pool and spa. Plenty of room to treat the extended family, friends and maybe an au pair or two too. For sale with beINFlorida, £1.6M
