    Not worth it unless you are super-rich
    It ties you to one holiday destination

    No because I don't want to be limited to one location.

    Yes I will.

    It will be a nice farmhouse in the South of France. I love that place and I'd love to spend my twilight years there.

    You won't be living permanently in a holiday home.

    I'd love to get one in Spain/Portugal - not too far away for a number of flights a year, and not too close so we don't share the same weather.

    Yes, I understand the term holiday, but for me, it's not worth the money (I'd rather spend money going to different countries than on buying a house).

    No, I prefer tranquil and continental. I love the food there, the people, the traditions, the ambience... I can't imagine finishing my life anywhere else.

    You'll eventually have to settle somewhere though, in old age.

    I love travelling too, so I understand where you're coming from. It's always nice to have somewhere to kick your feet up

    Pretty sure most people wont be able to save up the deposit for the first home, let alone a second one

    When I was 17, I went to France with my ex boyfriend and stayed in a place like this. It was heaven...
