Locations of properties listed on The Viewing

Our website advertises luxury second homes around the globe. Often these properties are not always inhabited year-round and for this reason our vendors prefer that the precise locations of their properties are not publicised. Our website does however provide area information including landscape types, the vendor’s personal tips and recommendations regarding the surrounding area and distances to key locations in the vicinity.
