Below are a few ideas to help you decide where you may want to live:
A nice big house to start with
First, you’d need to decide where you would like to live, in the country where you live now or somewhere warmer and more exotic or even both, a place near your current home with a superb holiday villa or mansion abroad.
You may decide to become a jet setter and move to Beverly Hills where you are spoilt for choice with many luxury houses on the market. Then you may wish to have a weekend beach house in Malibu a short drive away. There are many fancy shops and restaurants you can visit and possibly rub shoulders with a famous celebrity eating at the same restaurant. You may even end up owning property next door to someone famous.
How about a private island?
If Beverly Hills isn’t quite your scene, maybe you’d fancy a private island such as Pumpkin Key located in the Florida Keys. The island consists of 26 acres of completely private land where you can live a relaxed life and is a mere 10- minute flight by helicopter from Miami, Florida whose international airport has flights to all parts of the globe.
The island consists of a luxurious three-bedroom main house and two cottages for the caretakers to live and a private marina with 20 slips for you to park your luxury yacht and accommodate visitor’s boats. Also included is a tennis court that doubles up as a helipad. It can be all yours for a mere $95 million.
How about a castle in Scotland?
Seton Castle in East Lothian, Scotland is a magnificent neoclassical castle that is not very far from Edinburgh. The castle has been fully restored into an opulent but welcoming thirteen bedroom family home set in 13 acres of private gardens and parkland. This beautiful old building is the consummate romantic Scottish castle that has been updated to a superb standard for modern living. It also has a lot of history to it as it was Mary Queen of Scots preferred residence at one time. It was built by acclaimed architect and designer Robert Adam in 1789 and was his final project in Scotland. This wonderful old building could be yours for a mere £8,000,000 making it a very tempting purchase for a lottery jackpot winner.
Perhaps you’d like the quiet life out on a ranch?
Being a ranch owner can be a wonderful way to invest your lottery jackpot winnings and can also be your money-making business at the same time. Ellis Ranch is a huge livestock farm consisting of over 46,000 acres and located in ‘big sky’ southeast Montana, USA. The land consists of undulating flats to rolling breaks including cedar and pine trees that provide protection for wildlife and cattle.

It is a very good self-sustaining cattle ranch that can provide a good return on investment all for the very reasonable price of $20,500,000.
A beautiful wine estate can be tempting
The amazing Via Di Cervognano Montepulciano in Siena, Italy is a superb winery tucked away in the green heart of Tuscany. It is on a hill with stunning views of the surrounding countryside and set in 84 hectares of arable and wooded land, sunflower fields, olive groves and vineyards.

Maybe the big city is attractive to you?
