Jonnie Irwin is coming to the help of Debbie and Dave from West Sussex, so they can fulfil their long-held dream of owning a holiday home in France.

What's the appeal?
The Dordogne region in south western France is about an eight hour drive from Calais – or you can fly into Bergerac right in the heart of the region from quite a few UK airports – the flight time is less than two hours. The Dordogne is well known as a gastronomic hotspot – you’re never far from a tasty bite to eat or a delicious glass of wine, nearly all home grown. The region, named after the river that runs through it, is one of France’s most popular holiday destinations (with more than 3 million tourists visiting each year) and it’s popular with Brits, almost 10,000 live in the region.
