Hidden behind discreet entrances, imposing gates, and even dense jungle vegetation are some of the most exclusive properties in the world.

Point2Homes, an international real estate listings database, compiled a list of the most expensive homes you can buy in 12 different countries.

From a palatial dwelling in Russia to a tropical paradise in Costa Rica, these pricey properties are pretty incredible.

Take a look below.

ANDORRA: This six-bedroom property nestled in the mountains of Andorra is currently on the market for $29.9 million. The house comes with several outbuildings, including a horse barn. It’s also minutes from the ski slopes.

AUSTRALIA: This $75 million property, located three miles outside of Sydney, has been owned by the same family for four generations. It has seven bedrooms and its own stretch of private beach.

BRAZIL: São Paulo is one of the most expensive cities in the world, so it’s no surprise that this stately four-bedroom will cost you a pretty penny, coming in at $20.8 million. You get almost 20,000 square feet, including a massive dining room and library.

CANADA: For $48 million, this is one of Vancouver’s largest waterfront estates, with panoramic ocean views and 10,000 square feet of English mansion-style living surrounded by mature cedars.

CHINA: This three-story Beijing home is going for $58 million. It comes with six bedrooms and three living rooms.

FRANCE: If you’re looking for a home that truly stands out, this property is your best bet. But be prepared to pay for it, as it’s currently on the market for $390 million. Overlooking the bay of Cannes on the Cote D’Azur, the so-called “Bubble Palace” is also in one of the world’s most exclusive locations.

INDIA: This stately New Delhi colonial villa is priced at $29.8 million for five bedrooms on a lush, five-acre parcel. Marble floors, servants’ quarters, an entrance rotunda, and a pool complete the picture.

ISRAEL: This ultra-sleek villa is fully decked out: Versace designs are scattered throughout the house, and you’ll find 24-carat gold tiles in the master bathroom. No wonder it costs $33 million.

MEXICO: In the middle of a UNESCO nature reserve, Hacienda Palancar has the luxury of being surrounded by acres and acres of lush land. It has 13 bedrooms spread across five villas and costs $30 million.

MONACO: Have you ever wanted a luxury Monaco penthouse? For $55.4 million, this could be yours. It comes with four bedrooms and a large outdoor garden roof area.

RUSSIA: This Skolkovo country house found just outside Moscow is on the market for $80 million. It’s an over-the-top city escape with decadent interiors fit for royalty. An indoor pool, entrance rotunda, and tree-lined drive add to the look.

UNITED KINGDOM: In the heart of London’s chic Knightsbridge neighborhood is a residential building operated by the Mandarin Oriental hotel. On the seventh floor is this spacious five-bedroom flat designed by the property tycoon Candy brothers and available for $68 million.
