King of the County: Own a South African nature reserve
With the 2010 FIFA World Cup just around the corner, hotels and rental holiday homes are quickly filling their booking quotas quicker than you can say babbelas. At JamesList we've never been fans of doing anything small-scale, which is why our accommodation of choice for the World Cup would be the €17 million, 2455 ha piece of South African coastline that is being presented by JamesList partners Engel & Völkers.
No construction is necessary either: the estate features 20 residential houses, two larger multi-purpose buildings, two workshops, a club house, a pool house, two tennis courts, parking spaces and tarred roads, your own private chapel (why not?) and a helicopter landing pad. And a few zebras. See you this summer!
