After reviewing a hotel stay this month (check out my review of the Hallmark Hotel in Glasgow) and visiting a few new sites around my area for an upcoming post, it's made me feel like I want to travel more! Owning a holiday home or second home abroad seems like the ultimate dream and if I was lucky enough to own or rent a holiday home there are quite a few locations around the world that I'd love to live in. However, for today's post I'm only going to mention a few locations otherwise the list would ridiculously long...

I visited Lisbon a few years and I would love to visit again as we only had one day to explore so there's still so much more to see! Portugal is such a beautiful country, especially the Algarve region so I think that a holiday home would be perfect in the Algarve. Ideal Homes have a selection of utterly beautiful properties for sale in Portugal and properties for sale in the Algarve region. There are so many heavenly villas to choose from and if you want to look through beautiful dream home photographs then definitely look through the properties on Ideal Homes, especially those in the western Algarve.

Another country that is one I would love to live in is Italy. Based on all of the countries I've been lucky enough to visit in Europe (which is quite a lot!), Italy is one I would be incredibly happy to live in. My favourite Italian city is probably Venice, shortly followed by Florence, both of which I throughly recommend visiting. I have a few posts on my blog already about some of the various locations I've visited in Italy and around Europe, if you want to scroll through!

Scottish Highlands 
Lastly, a location closer to home! Scotland is one of my favourite countries to visit, especially after visiting Stirling, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs national park this month which were all so beautiful. I have a photo diary post of my visit to Scotland on my blog, if you want to read it. I've been camping around Scotland since I was a child and while I loved the places we visited, including Oban, Fort William and the Isle of Mull, I think my favourite Scottish city is probably Edinburgh but I'd love to visit more of the highlands and Shetland.

Would you buy a villa abroad? If so, where? Have you visited any of the locations I've featured?

  3. I'd love to live abroad for a time but not sure where. Maybe the Netherlands x


  4. I'd move back to Spain in a heartbeat! It's such a beautiful country to live in xx
