A Place in the Sun, Lecrin now Weds, 21 Jan

The scheduled time for A Place in the Sun: Winter Sun featuring the Lecrin Valley has been changed. It will now air on Wednesday 21st Jan 2015, 14:10 (GMT), Channel 4. Fingers crossed for no more changes!

A Place in the Sun comes to the Lecrin Valley

It’s been a very exciting week in the Lecrin Valley, with the arrival of Channel 4’s A Place in the Sun. The crew has been filming in the area for a new episode featuring a British couple who are thinking about buying in the Granada Province.

A few weeks ago we got a very exciting call from the researchers, asking if we could help the crew look for houses in the Lecrin Valley and suggest existing local expat residents to interview for the show. No problema!

Danielle Gouwens at At Home in Andalusia quickly got to work shortlisting suitable houses, while we set up interviews with a few of the local expats, including Louise Spink from Restabal’s Vinas de Vera,  Cathy King from La Tasca Restaurant in Niguelas and the lovely Molly Sears, author of the Piccavey blog who lives in Granada.

Laura HamiltonThe team, headed by popular presenter Laura Hamilton, visited 5 houses in total, of which three were in the valley – in Chite, Albunuelas and Pinos.

Now we just have to wait for the show to air to find out if the couple, Pauline and John, decide to buy in Granada, but everyone’s had a great time in the process!

We’re hoping that the show, which will probably broadcast in January, will encourage more people to visit or buy a home in our lovely corner of the world, as well as bring welcome business to the local bars, restaurants, cafes and activities.

Next week the show will be filming in Motril, so the Costa Tropical will also get a look-in!
