Storyline

British couples wishing to buy a property in a sunny foreign country are shown three or four places found by the show's researchers. The presenter (currently Amanda Lamb) gives the couple useful local information relating to buying, running and maintaining a property in this particular location. After viewing each property the couple are asked for their opinions. At the end of the show they are asked if they have a favourite property and we're finally told if they went on to buy the property or another in the region. Written by Rob Hartill

Pure Rubbish
10 September 2017 | by solitaire-77488See all my reviews

I've watched about 200 of these shows over the last 7 years and, from this moment on, will never watch it again. They show people who say they have a certain budget to spend on properties. They are shown properties within their budgets and meet nearly, if not all, of their requirements. The properties are really lovely and many times the people say they love them. The kicker is when they put in an offer it's so ridiculously low that 99% of the time no one ever actually purchases! It seems to me a setup from the very start. I've seen only 4 purchases out of 200+ programs watched. After awhile I kept watching just to see if my suspicions are right...either "British" people are too arrogant or this entire thing is nothing but staged to get viewers. It seems more a setup although England is, admittedly, full of some very arrogant people. The "cheeky offers" are just laughable and they get denied every time...except once. So, to me, this show is 100% a waste of time. If you watch it for any reason at all, the properties and views are absolutely wonderful. You will get some great ideas for yourself. Otherwise, it's not worth watching.
