We looked at buying on the Silver Coast about 2 years ago and saw about 20 properties. Most of them are still for sale but only a few have been reduced in price. Like most places, it’s a buyer’s market.

We realised that we didn’t want cold and/or wet winters so we decided we had to look outside of Europe. We finally bought a place near Cape Town in South Africa. It's on a security estate. Flights of course are more expensive but the cost of living is lower than UK or Portugal. Golf club membership is cheap and most days October to April are warm/hot and sunny. Living in a country where everyone speaks English is also an added bonus, at least for us.
Well good luck to you but many of us may not be happy with the idea of living in gated communities. Seeing as you have been knocking about in the middle east I see why you may heve developed this disconnect. I used to live in Kenya so I know what I'm talking about.
