Debbie and Dawn wanted to fulfil their long-awaited dream of owning a holiday home in France. With a budget of £200,000, the West Sussex pair hoped Jonnie could secure them the perfect find on Channel 4’s A Place in The Sun. Despite Jonnie’s best efforts though, the two kept poking holes in the homes they toured, leaving him surprised as he thought he had found a house that met their requirements.
The couple rejected property one, a four-bed house in Brantôme.
The 16th-century house featured a large back garden with room for a pool, a spacious living room with a fireplace, a light-filled dining room, a kitchen, a utility room, a bedroom and a bathroom.
Upstairs there are three more bedrooms, one currently being used as a studio, a family bathroom, and a large loft space.
Valued at £202,702, the couple deemed it as having “too much character”.
Next up was a six-bed house in Tocane-Saint-Apre.

“No,” Dave agreed. “Straight away, the road is quite busy, there’s no privacy outside.”
Looking deflated, Jonnie replied: “Okay, yeah.”
“And also as we’ve come into the house, although it’s a big property, there is a bucketload of work to do,” Dave added. “It’s not for us I’m afraid.”
“That’s fair enough,” the property expert answered. “We’ve got so much ground to cover, and three more absolute crackers to look at in terms of property.
“So, let’s concentrate on what’s coming up – why don’t we go back outside, I’ll show you the back garden and we’ll discuss where we go from there.”
He told the cameras: “That was a bit of a disaster wasn’t it?

“And I am slightly surprised that Dave and Debbie ruled it out quite so quickly, as it did tick a lot of their boxes.”
Jonnie got a third strike when property three, a four-bed house in Maurens, was also written off by the pair.
The traditional stone house had a pool with a surrounding patio area as well as a terrace.
Valued at £190,990 at the time of filming, Dave said it was “not traditional” on the inside.
“It’s not what I was expecting to see from the outside,” he admitted.
In the end, Dave and Debbie eventually named property four as a contender.
The four-bed home in Vanxains had big front and back gardens, a patio area with great views and an upstairs balcony.
“We finally have a contender,” Dave told Jonnie.
