A Place in the Sun guests halt viewing midway through leaving host gobsmacked

A Place in the Sun buyers were branded 'messers' by gobsmacked viewers after they stormed out of a property mid-viewing, leaving presenter Scarlett Douglas lost for words.

Married couple Laura and Matt had enlisted Scarlette's help in their search for the perfect holiday home in the Italian countryside on a budget of £180,000.

The pair wanted to find a property in Tuscany with beautiful views and plenty of space for their grown-up children to visit.

They were delighted with Scarlette's second property, a three-bedroom farmhouse with a private garden, a huge open plan living area and a modern kitchen. It was on the market for just under £170,000.

But when it came to property number three, they called it quits before having even taken a proper tour. On the market for £187,500, it had four bedrooms with stunning views of the surrounding hills.

It was too remote for Laura and Matt's liking, and they walked out before Scarlette could show them around.

The host said: "I am sensing that you’re not as elated as you were with the previous one".

Laura admitted her concerns over the remote nature of the property, adding: "I think it’s more that if it was a permanent move then it would be more suitable."

Matt agreed, and said: "The location is a little bit of an issue. It feels like you come off some very remote roads, down a remote track into the woods. It just feels disconnected".

Scarlette asked: "Do you want to keep looking around?”

Matt replied: "I think we’ve probably drawn a line on this one."

“It’s location. The house is lovely, but it’s location. So, I think it will be a no,” Laura added.

As a result, the couple walked away from the property without finishing the full viewing.

Another added: "Pair of time wasters."

A third said: "He’ll never make his mind up… Or by the time he has, someone’ll have got there before him."
