Review

Multichannel television means that at almost all hours there’s an episode of A Place in the Sun to enjoy. It’s such an attractive formula for armchair travellers, and the Winter Sun format means we get even more overseas properties to nose around. And as we’ve got used to rocketing property prices in some parts of the UK, it’s reassuring to know that there are still good deals to be found on the continent.

In this episode, childhood sweethearts Debbie and Tony Parkes are looking for a sunny bolt hole for their retirement. Albufeira, in Portugal’s Algarve, seems like a good bet (let’s not dwell on the freak storm that caused flooding in the town centre in November 2014), but what can presenter Ben Hillman find them with a budget of £80,000?
