If you like the idea of owning property in Portugal, then you might want to do some research on an area called Alentejo, where you have the opportunity of not only buying one of a variety of villas, but, when you purchase one of these properties, you also become the proud owner of a vineyard as well. Properties vary in size and the larger the property you buy, the bigger the vineyard you will own.

Another of the best places in the world to own a villa, according to the article, is Kotor Bay, Montenegro. This is the ideal place for those looking for somewhere quiet and relaxing to go to, to get away from the rat race for a while.
