With a budget of £65,000, Rob Morris and his girlfriend Gaynor Carman from Swansea want a slice of the tranquil French countryside in the Limousin. Can Sara Damergi find Rob the bargain he's after?
Rob Morris and Gaynor Carmen have only been together six months but they’re so loved up they’re already looking for a French holiday home which they can enjoy together (and eventually retire to)

Our arty couple are also hoping that the area’s vivid landscapes will inspire their paintings. Will Sara be able to find them a house that’s as pretty as a picture, or will the whole property hunt be a surrealist nightmare?
