British TV station Channel 4 will return to Nerja next week to record a new episode of the series “A Place in the Sun”. This new show will be named “A Place In The Sun: Home or Away”.
The show’s aim is to find homes for British nationals wishing to purchase property in Spain. The show’s production team had already visited the town at the end September last year to record another episode of the series.
Aside from showcasing homes, the show also transfers television viewers to different areas of the towns they visit, such as streets, beaches and other places of interest. This time, due to the fact that the visit will coincide with Easter Week, the Town’s Council informed the Channel 4 about the processions that will take place between Wednesday and Easter Sunday.
