The Romans called the Mediterranean “Mare Nostrum” (“Our Sea”). And it’s no wonder why. At its height, the Roman Empire encircled it. This vast waterway enabled trade, the interaction of diverse cultures, and the exchange of ideas for millennia. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Western Civilization as we know it today would look… Read more

Sometimes you just want to get away from it all. But rather than a steamy tropical beach, you want cool weather…crisp, clean air…peace and quiet…and panoramic views of natural beauty. A place where the nearest town to buy your groceries or have a meal out is a small village…and limited access makes it hard to… Read more

I often get people asking me for international real estate recommendations… “Should I buy in Belize?” “Do you have any thoughts on purchasing property in Cuenca, Spain?” Before you start asking those questions, you need to ask yourself a much more important one: What kind of investor are you? Knowing the answer to this will… Read more

Narrow, cobblestoned streets lined with brightly colored facades…quaint plazas and leafy parks…soaring churches and cathedrals…shaded courtyards complete with tinkling fountains and grand statues of past heroes… It’s touches like these that have attracted people to live in Latin America’s colonial towns and cities. These “inner city” historic districts were once neglected, as local people with… Read more

Language does not have to be an obstacle to traveling or living anywhere in the world. But sometimes it can be nice to converse in your native tongue. A long colonial legacy in the so-called West Indies by the British means that there are several islands in the Caribbean where English is commonly spoken or… Read more

With nearly 20 years of scouting experience under my belt, I thought I knew how to recognize a tourist. But in Tulum, on the Riviere Maya (where I spent some time recently), you never can be sure. That couple who were sunbathing on the beach are now logged into their laptops, fielding Zoom calls and… Read more

Without the cholera epidemic in the 19th century, the city of Cannes on the French Riviera would not exist. At least not as the epitome of glitz and glamour it is today. In 1834, a British Lord Chancellor and his daughter were on their way to Nice, a part of Italy at the time, and… Read more

For lots of people, the pull of big city life is strong. They’re drawn by the plethora of arts and culture, fine dining…the feeling of being in the center of the action and on the cutting edge. And they draw energy from the frenetic pace of a major metropolis. Due to high demand for housing… Read more

Have you ever dreamed of living in a medieval villa in Italy? How about a French cottage in a grassy glade…or a majestic chateau built by a prince? In hidden corners across Europe, you can find countless bargain properties just waiting to be rescued. I’m talking old, beautiful, and often quite substantial homes which are… Read more

It seems I’ve developed a bit of reputation among my friends and colleagues… As one real estate contact put it when he saw my place in Los Cabos, Mexico (after having previously seen my newest home on Portugal’s Silver Coast): “You sure have a type when it comes to beachfront communities you choose to live… Read more

First come the artists, the writers, then those with money follow… This is a pattern I’ve witnessed time and again in places that undergo gentrification. Artists and creatives find an overlooked town, city, or neighborhood. They move in…make it an exciting place to live…watch as a whole micro economy grows up around them…as old buildings… Read more

The air is cool inside the old winemaker’s house, a welcome break from the summer sun. The house has three floors. In total there are six bedrooms, and lots of what you’d call “character”—original floor tiles, heavy wooden doors and wrought-iron finishes. It also has a small shady garden in front making it perfect for… Read more
