A Place in the Sun guests were shocked when host Jonnie Irwin showed them what viewers thought looked like a "half-finished" property.
Pub landlady Alison, who lives in the north of England, was looking for a permanent holiday home in Costa Dorada, just south of Barcelona in Spain.
Appearing on yesterday's (April 14) episode on Channel 4, the house hunter was willing to spend £70,000 for a one to two-bed property with amenities like swimming pool and shops nearby.
Alison also wanted the property to come with a decent size plot of land so that she could grow vegetables.
For the first stop, Jonnie took Alison and her friend Theresa to the countryside area near the town of L'Ampolla.
He introduced the property and said: "Now, let's talk about the property – compact and bijou. This is us."
Standing outside in the drive way, Alison replied: "It's got quite an attractive look. I like it, I feel like I can't see any neighbours."
The rustic finca came with one main bedroom and a guest room in the mezzanine level but Jonnie explained that the owner was happy to install solar panels for Alison if she paid for just under £75,500.
As they enter the house, both Alison and Theresa gasped and said: "Oh my God!"

Jonnie responded: "You both said the same thing, is that good or bad?"
Alison looked around and added: "Not for me, haha. I don't like beams. I do like this room, I think it's absolutely, really nice.
"Kitchen is small but I don't need a hand, it's only me living really, so that's okay.
"I kind of like the sofa, double chairs, and you still got a dining space, which is a little bit separate."
She then took a second look at the wooden beams and took back her comment.
Her pal Theresa added: "In my head, this is the sort of place that she would live, where I wouldn't live.
"This is exactly what I imagine her sleeping her and just go out to the kitchen and wander out in the terrace."
Viewers, however, saw it differently and said the house looked like a "cow shed".
One asked: "So what are they calling this property? Looks half finished!"
A second wrote: "Probably running alive with vermin."
