It’s the next best thing to buying an Island, and for some very lucky people it will be the ultimate Christmas gift this year

Will rise in lifestyle purchases of exclusive £1m+ properties make Christmas 2015 the most ostentatious yet? is selling an increasing number of exclusive properties abroad that offer the owners somewhere wonderful to entertain and an income stream too. And for those with buying budgets of £1m - £2m they make amazing Christmas gifts for those special spouses and trust fund families, while happily evading the UK's new stamp duty laws.

So forget the Sunday supplement gift guides, if you want to pass a parcel to the one you love that blends originality the with the ostentatious then present them with a present no one else can match.

For example over in Australia there’s an entire holiday resort complex in the beautiful Whitsundays, a snip at £1.1m, or if you fancy South America there’s a rainforest lodge in Ecuador at £1.5M while closer to home there’s 42 acres of French natural park land, only 45km away from Paris, which comes in at just under £1.4m.

Compare these with a modest abode in England where the average house price in London is now £0.5m and, at these prices, what you can get for your money doesn’t look as extravagant after all – particularly as each offers a healthy revenue stream.

Rufus Bazley, Marketing Director at says, “Our unique residential businesses are attracting a growing number of lifestyle buyers keen to acquire sizeable properties oversees that can provide them with the ultimate venue for entertaining plus some income during those periods when families and friends are elsewhere in the world. It’s the next best thing to buying an Island, and for some very lucky people it will be the ultimate Christmas gift this year.”

For those with under a £1m to spend also lists hotels complexes in India, Holiday cottages in France and a B&B in Thailand. Each is an established business and predicts a high number will be sold to private investors keen to mix business with pleasure this Christmas.
