The TV Series
House hunters Jo and DP are searching for a holiday home in Nerja on Spain’s ever-popular Costa del Sol.

Tasked with finding them the perfect property is Ben Hillman, who shows them five fantastic options – but will any of them be the dream place for Jo and DP?
About the area of Nerja
A majority of people arriving at the ‘gateway to the Costa del Sol’, Malaga airport, head West towards Marbella, but if you travel an hour to the East up the A7, you arrive at Nerja. The beaches here are arguable just as stunning.
While there are fewer tourists and a little less glitz and glam, this town has a beautifully traditional charm with its coddled streets filled with authentic tapas bars, restaurants and coffee shops.
Surrounding Nerja are a few more great locations, like the tourist town of Torrox Costa with its brilliant promenade, and Almunecar, popular with Spanish tourists and renowned for its fabulous food.
If this is the type of program you like, then here is the link to the Nerja episode shown on Monday 4th of July 2022.
You can also find lots on their Facebook page.
