Eight-bedroom house in Callac, Brittany, France
Caribbean: St Vincent and the Grenadines
Comprising beachfront land and a quirky, undulating stone house, this property is on the southern tip of Bequia island. It is part of the Moonhole Community which was founded by Tom and Gladdie Johnston in the 1960s when they retired from their work in advertising in New York. They built the houses for family and friends. The two-bed, two-storey house, which comes with an exposed roof garden, is open to breezes. It needs work and an open mind.
