Birgu — one of the oldest areas in Malta — was crowned the winner, with 79% of people saying that the houses in this area are completely breathtaking. In second place came Bibury, England, famed for its honey-hued stone cottages, while Tuscany in Italy rounded off the top three.

Other idyllic locations to make the list include Ghent in Belgium, Mykonos in Greece, and the beautiful French city of Paris.
