Monday - Torrevieja with Lee

Lee and house hunters, Torrevieja

To start off the week, and the new series, we headed to Torrevieja on Spain's Costa Blanca with Lee Juggurnauth. In this episode, Lee was on hand to help couple Ash and Anila find a three-bedroom holiday home with a swimming pool, for a budget of £135,000. He showed them five properties in Torrevieja and the surrounding areas, including Los Altos, Punta Prima and Villamartin. Torrevieja is consistently one of the most popular regions for buyers on - it has a near-perfect climate, great beaches and although it's home to many foreigners, has retained its Spanish charm.

Thursday - Eastern Algarve with Danni

Danni in the Algarve

 On Thursday Danni Menzies was house hunting in the eastern Algarve. She was tasked with finding Colin and Janet a holiday home for £350,000. The Algarve is a favourite with tourists and holiday home owners, but the eastern Algarve is commonly associated with being more unspoiled and rural than the central, most visited, region. It is home to picturesque towns like Tavira and secluded island beaches. Some of Danni's options for the couple included villas in Moncarapacho and Olhão.
