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

Dreary. It's success is baffling.
19 April 2005 | by ali_but_not_GSee all my reviews

Quite how this show has lasted for so long will be a mystery to television historians for decades to come. I've often tuned in to the show over the years hoping that it would eventually evolve into informative and entertaining television only to be disappointed.

The main presenter (Amanda Lamb) is sorely lacking in charisma and seems to do little else than walk people up to houses and then condescendingly pretend to be friendly with them over awkward chats. Some of the supplementary presenters in the longer shows took a stab at making things interesting but they were usually defeated by the need to stretch the shows out to their near 60 minute duration.

The biggest problem is that the property hunters chosen were frequently quite uninteresting. The properties they were shown were too conservatively chosen. Quite why we should be interested in seeing a 3 year old villa in Marbella is beyond me.

Lastly the programme too often displayed a petty minded Little England snobbery at foreigners and their quaint ways. Some of the property hunters did seem genuinely interested in living abroad but the vast majority seemed quite undesirable neighbours.

Stay in Cleethorpes!
