I watch sometimes for the locations: places in France or Spain that I know or would like to know more of. Have to turn off sometimes because the buyers/presenters are too irritating!!!
Don't pay much attention to the prices but sometimes like to guess whether the properties are French or British owned; eg by the shape of the pillows on the bed, the plants in the garden, the furniture, etc.
Always annoyed when they say things that are patently untrue such as "you can add a bathroom here for a few hundred euros", "you could have this barn done out to provide gite accommodation for about 2000 euros", "you could knock this wall down to enlarge this space".
NEVER do they mention that renovations cost an arm and a leg, that not all walls can be simply "knocked down", bathrooms and toilets need to be sited where they can easily be connected to the existing drainage system, that charges for communal gardens and swimming pools can be high and are likely to increase year on year, etc.
Still, during the hot weather when I was in front of the goggle box for hours on end in a darkened room, the programmes helped to pass the time
