Expatriates appear to be taking a strong interest in property in Mallorca, it has been suggested.
The country's largest English language portal, Kyero.com, reported that the region accounted for 51.1 per cent of enquiries in the first quarter of the year.
While the island does have the second highest average asking price in Spain, the "golf courses, infrastructural developments, glorious beaches, year-round lively atmosphere, celebrity residents and world recognised events" could make up for the cost.
Ignacio Osle, sales and marketing director of Taylor Wimpey de Espana, commented: "Mallorca seems be receiving a touch of the Monaco effect, attracting the rich and famous to our shores.
"The island is already noted for being fashionable, desirable and fantastic for boat owners and beach lovers alike."
But before moving overseas it could be worth looking into expatriate insurance policies to check that you and your family are covered.
