With many of us welcoming spring, we thought it would be a great opportunity to take a look at some of our members' fantastic outdoor spaces - and give everyone a little seasonal inspiration. From grand stately gardens in the Netherlands to tropical modern spaces in Bali, here are nine of our favourites... 

1. Beautiful stone house in Aquitaine, France

We're completely head over heels for this outdoor space from this gorgeous French stone house. We love the rustic features combined with the elegant floral arrangements and perfectly green lawn. This would certainly make the ultimate place to sit and enjoy the French sunshine. 

2. Idyllic hideaway in Ibiza, Spain

If there's anywhere to enjoy the Ibiza sunshine it would be here relaxing by the pool. We particularly love the modern furniture and decking mixed together with the more rustic stone walls and of course the fantastic greenery. 

3. Luxurious mountain home near Rio, Brazil

Arguably a simple garden, the views from this property and surrounding landscapes speak for themselves. We would love nothing more than to relax in the pool and soak in the mountainous backdrop and Brazilian sun. 

4. Oceanfront home in Laguna Beach, California

We can't help but imagine being sat here as the sun sets across the ocean and taking in the gorgeous surroundings. We love how well thought out this viewing area is - from the modern glass railings to the spectacular gas fire - everything here has been built around the incredible views, and we love it! 

5. Beautiful estate in Cape Town, South Africa

This vibrant outdoor pool area is everything you could want to cool down in the African heat. The flowers and plants really steal the show in this garden - as does the large luxurious pool! 

6. Luxurious villa in the Ibizan countryside

This outdoor seating area would make the perfect location to entertain family and friends between taking a dip in the pool. We particularly love how the owners have contrasted the rustic wooden table and floor with the glamourous crystal chandelier hanging overhead. Similarly the green throw cushions suitably blend in with the manicured lawns and shrubbery.  

7. Tranquil home in Provence, France

This wonderful rural French home has spectacular views over the Luberon hills. Featuring a heated swimming pool, floodlit tennis court, and perfectly kept gardens – this would make the perfect location to relax and unwind. 

8. Luxurious chateau in Zeeland, Netherlands 

This garden looks like it has been taken straight out of a fairytale. Featuring grand statues, fountains, swans, moats, peacocks and a pool – these grounds certainly have it all. 

9. Secluded oceanfront home in Bali, Indonesia

The name of this magnificent villa, ‘Villa Frangipani’ was chosen after ‘ the unique selection of 12 different varieties of Bali’s most famous flowering trees, the Frangipani, each with different colored flowers, blooming at different times of the year. The beautifully manicured gardens further feature large multi colored bougainvillea, a massive cascading multi-level water pond filled with a variety of coi, catfish and a plethora of fish traditionally found in rice paddies and creeks. Topped off with a 130 m2 swimming pool, this really is a taste of ultimate luxury.
