                I think there was a previous thread that I can not now find on similar TV programme or maybe the same as this one repeated.

                The chap in that one looking had limited walking disability and was shown properties impossible to walk.

                He also wanted a swimming pool. I recall one property was a converted old Balery in a village with limited outside space and a tiny swimming pool.

                Earlier tonight I was watching, location, location. Again in areas around Chania.

                Again converted Old Bakery. 3 bedrooms, except in my opinion, all the bedroom were open plan, i.e. if a couple wished to have a passionate night, then would be heard by everyone.
                Again limited outside space and tiny swimming pool – maybe the same place.

                My thoughts as one has to pay extra tax for swimming pool in Greece, did not make sense to have a tiny swimming pool. Be better off to have an inflated paddling pool, that I presume one would not pay tax for.

                I guess whoever converted it, thought Brits like a pool, without thinking it through.
                I think the price quoted was around £200K (yes £). Owner can dream on.

                The couple were shown some decent sized homes.

                Also this time, a bit more time was spent explaining about the Greek Lady who does the cookery classes and we saw her cutting up a peeled potato. Told the class was later in the day to their visit.

                    I don’t see a question mark so I can’t tell whether you are asking a question. However, I can tell you that the programme you are describing is not the one that I recorded. I think yours was first shown in 2015.

                        just Google search A Place in the Sun 2015-2016 and all the episodes are listed .
                        According to the list there is only one Crete episode, it is the one described by moggy and the one I watched a couple of weeks ago.
                        all the episodes can be watched online.

                            The episode which I recorded has the house in Stylos, one just outside Vamos and one in Kefalas with a sea view. It was filmed this spring/summer.

                                Two programmes have been recorded and shown. – One was recorded last Autumn, which is the one Moggie refers to, (A chap accompanied by his daughter house hunting) and another this Spring, in which a young single woman was looking for a house, (accompanied by a friend). They have both been shown in the UK and the first one has also been repeated. I think they are both available online.
