Horrified A Place In The Sun couple instantly write off villa after seeing view

A Place In The Sun was challenging for presenter Jasmine Harman when husband and wife Maggie and Alistair almost immediately ruled out the first property she showed them.

In today's episode of the Channel 4 show (April 8) she was tasked with finding a holiday home on the sunny Canary Island of Gran Canaria within a budget of £350,000.

Maggie and Alistair, from Edinburgh, were not shy in voicing their concerns about property number one, a three-bed duplex in Arguineguín.

They liked the modern interior but couldn't help but express disappointment in the view from the patio area, which was little more than the rear ends of neighbouring properties with mountains in the distance.

Maggie said: "As a view, it’s not the view I had in my head and in my heart.

"It’s just a view of other houses."

Jasmine cheekily asks her tall husband: "How does it look from up there?"

"Up here it is rather similar to how Maggie described it," said Alistair.

"We are slightly looking into the houses at the rear here."

"This isn't it," Maggie said flatly.

Jasmine sounded gobsmacked and checked with her: "You’re ruling this out already?"

The couple did agree to have a brief look upstairs just to help them get an understanding of what their money could buy but the large bedrooms and living areas were not enough to persuade them to consider the villa for the running.

Upstairs, there was another terrace that had gorgeous views of the sea and Maggie and Alistair said it was a shame the water couldn't be seen from the main outside area.

They decided to change their search criteria and look at more traditional properties in rural locations with more attractive scenery.

Unfortunately, Jasmine's efforts were in vain and Maggie and Alistair returned to Scotland without making an offer on a single property.
