Five of the most viewed overseas homes this year
While it might have been a difficult year for many people planning a getaway, that hasn’t stopped the nation from searching and dreaming of the perfect home overseas.
From a luxury mansion in the city that never sleeps, to a stunning villa in the Algarve, our most viewed properties abroad this year span five different countries and have just about everything – sea views, private terraces and spectacular swimming pools.
Take a look at the top five below. Which is your favourite?
1. A bulletproof townhouse in New York
Ever imagined living it up in style in the heart of Manhattan? Well, it seems lots of people have, as this New York City pad is among our most viewed overseas homes so far this year.
This achingly cool, architect-designed luxury pad is spread over seven levels. If the slick interior design hasn’t already sold it to you, then maybe the rooftop terrace will, where you can sip a Manhattan or three while taking in the city’s magnificent skyline.

2. A sprawling villa in Cannes
This ultra-luxury mega-mansion in Cannes is in the exclusive La Californi neighbourhood, and offers sweeping views over the sea, the bay of Cannes, and the mountains.
It has pretty much everything you’d ever want, including eight bedroom suites, nine bathrooms, a gym, dance studio and cinema room – but our favourite spot is the poolside bar and terrace, which we would never want to leave.

3. A movie-set retreat on the Amalfi coast
This spectacular home on Italy’s Amalfi coast cleverly combines the building’s natural structure with an interior design palette that makes you almost feel the warmth of the Italian coast.
If you ever tired of admiring each unique and elegant room, then the private swimming pool set amongst the rocks is the ideal location to just take all of the scenery in.

4. A contemporary villa in the Algarve
The biggest decision you’d have to make at this cool, contemporary villa in the Algarve is which pool you’re going to dive into first before you hit the golf course.
The centrepiece of the eight-bedroom villa is the luxurious infinity pool overlooking the Quinta do Lago lake, but there’s also a heated indoor pool and spa, and a rooftop lounge with a pool.
