Luxury Oceanside Homes in Europe

Goals

To compile a list of luxury oceanside properties in Europe that are available to rent or buy at a relatively cheap price due to an overlooked location in order to create a private residence similar to Putin's Palace or the Chateau Louis XIV. Locations should meet the following criteria: 1) stable government, 2) isolated area, 3) safe area, and 4) minimum wage is less than $7.25 per hour. Properties should be divided into three categories according to cost (in US$): 1) $1 million to $2 million, 2) $3 million to $5 million, and 3) $5 million to $10 million.

Early Findings

A search of proprietary databases yielded no relevant paid market reports addressing luxury oceanside homes for rent or purchase in Europe that meet the requested criteria. However, initial research indicates that there are several luxury oceanside properties available to buy or rent in Europe with costs ranging from $1 million to $10 million. Additional research is required to establish whether these properties meet all requested criteria. We've put together the following spreadsheet and included one property as an example in the third tab ($5-$10 million).
