September is here. Children are back in school, Tesco has brought out their Christmas cards and chocolates, and that great holiday you had in the sun is now becoming a distant memory.

It’s not surprising that Spain, France and Italy are always among the Brits’ top 10 holiday destinations. Their lovely climate and more relaxing lifestyle, among other factors, win the hearts of millions of Brits every year; to the extent that these 3 countries are also among the top 10 most popular countries for Brits to buy a property in.

It seems that there is no obstacle to getting a place in the sun, not even the financial crisis in Spain. Buying property abroad will stay in fashion and be the next move for investors, for those wanting a holiday home, and for those who want to emigrate for good.
