My £10k Holiday Home

My £10k Holiday Home

Series 1



In a breezily informative new series, Julia Bradbury scours Portugal for a holiday home that will cost her less than £10,000. It’s not some unattainable dream –apparently cheap fixer-upper properties in sunny countries are all the rage.

It seems like a good idea, but before looking for her own place Bradbury visits a Brit who bought agricultural land cheaply and converted two shepherds’ huts into bijou crash-pads for visitors. In Bulgaria we meet a couple who bought a two-storey cottage on a credit card.

Having ruled out Portugal’s expensive Algarve, Bradbury moves inland and finds a dinky house in a tiny village where the locals assure her she’ll be warmly welcomed.


Julia Bradbury finds out if it is possible to buy and renovate a home abroad for just £10,000. She begins with two potential properties in Portugal, and is assisted by designer and salvage expert Max McMurdo.
