If guaranteed heat is a necessity, then Cape Town is enjoying its moment in the sun, with prices in prime locations rising almost 20 per cent last year. Those who want to make the most of every ray could consider this three-bedroom duplex penthouse (savill.com; about £5m) in Mouille Point. Nestled on the coast, with views of the Atlantic Ocean, the property is designed with indoor-outdoor living in mind and includes a private swimming pool, deck and barbecue, while inside its ensuite bedrooms are complemented by two study areas, a wine cellar and staff accommodation. Alternatively, if total privacy is a must, nothing beats your own personal island, and 38-acre Little Pipe Cay in the Bahamas’ Exumas not only offers pristine waters and seas teaming with marine life, but five elegantly furnished homes (knightfrank.co.uk; $85m), four private beaches and metres of dock frontage.
