Cheryl Cole is looking for a holiday home in South Africa.

The 'Call My Name' singer spent the festive season in the region and is now hoping to find a quiet spot near one of Cape Town's beautiful beaches.

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 brunette beauty wants to set up in the affluent suburb of Camps Bay and was inquiring about the location over the New Year.

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.''
