What is the best website for buying a holiday property?

Chances are you will already know some of the biggest websites. The likes of Zoopla, Prime Location and Rightmove are giants in online property sales.

However, there are other websites out there that might be of interest if you're looking for something specific or a little bit different. For example, for a property with a lake or sea view, try Waterside Properties. For a contemporarily-designed property, take a look at The Modern House, or if it's a characterful property that you've got in mind then head to Period Property UK.
