Cheryl Cole is looking to buy a holiday home in South Africa.

The 'Call My Name' singer spent the festive season soaking up the sun in the region and is now looking for a more permanent vacation spot in Cape Town.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Cheryl has hired an exclusive property finder to look for a romantic bolt-hole on one of the secluded beaches.''

The 30-year-old beauty is looking to purchase a beach property in the affluent suburb of Camps Bay and the price is said to be ''no problem'' for the star.

The source added: ''She adores it there and has visited three times now. She was asking everyone over New Year if they thought a house on the Camps Bay would be too windy. But some of the fisherman's cottages have been done up and they're stunning.''

Cheryl posted a collection of holiday photos to her Instagram account and spoke of how much she had enjoyed her break.

She wrote alongside one of the images: ''My holiday was everything, shout out to everyone I met. Beautiful sunsets, beautiful city, beautiful people.''

A picture of Cheryl hugging a 20-year-old student also emerged during her holiday and he later revealed that the superstar gave him ''a kiss on the lips'', which he described as ''pretty great.''
