Expatriates looking for a new country to live in might want to consider relocating abroad to the island of Sal in Cape Verde.
Cape Verde Property managing director Adrian Lillywhite explained property prices in this area have fallen as a result of the global economic downturn.
This has enabled people to receive "tremendous resale bargains in superb locations", he remarked.
It is hard to find a house on the island that is more than a ten-minute walk from the sea, with Sal becoming more and more cosmopolitan, featuring a "variety of top-quality developments", the specialist continued.
Mr Lillywhite highlighted the "lovely, lazy little town" of Santa Maria as a key district in Sal, pointing out it has "excellent" restaurants and bars, "world-class watersports" and an attractive beach.
A comprehensive international health insurance policy is useful for people in Cape Verde, with the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office calling the nation's medical facilities "limited".
