Re: Kandilakia/Eikonostasia of Crete

The concrete/stone ones are available from the sort of places selling big barbecues and wood ovens. I would guess any blacksmith wood supply the metal ones but I don't know for sure.

Re: Kandilakia/Eikonostasia of Crete

They are commemorating someone who has died in a road accident at that spot. People also erect them in their gardens to commemorate someone who has died.

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

...We have 2 totally at variance selling factors, a big private garden , and room to develop!... With a 1,600 sqm plot and a 400 sqm build allowance I wouldn't class them as "totally at variance". You already have 120 sqm constructed so you would only be taking 280 sqm at most out of what...

It might be worth saying which area you are in?

Re: Latest EHIC & Reciprocal Healthcare

It is pretty obvious that this so called post code lottery is what will happen in the event of no-deal so it shouldn't be a surprise. The EU is not a sovereign state, it is a union of 28, soon to be 27, sovereign states. When the UK leaves the EU it becomes a third country and each sovereign state c...

Re: Hotels for Christmas.

It tends to be big tourist hotels by the coast that offer all inclusive packages and they are closed during the winter. Like Peebee says just get a hotel in town and there are tons of places to eat and drink, including some good tavernas that are only open in the winter. They probably need to book s...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

The positioning on the map of AirBnB properties is somewhat haphazard so it is difficult to be certain but I think this is the small property opposite the semi-derelict OTE building. As you can see it is nicely done inside but it is very small to say it claims to cater for 5 guests, i.e. 75 sqm and ...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

If you have access to UK TV it is worth watching the Rachel Parris section of The Mash Report on BBC2 on Thursday 10 October at 22:00 UK time, midnight Greek time. For those with IPTV service in Greece it will probably list as 00:00 on Friday 11 October. It's near the beginning of the show. The rest...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

The figures I gave were from the topography used to get building permission so they only contained information relating to a private dwelling. The original topography, when we bought the plot, contained figures for both private dwelling and tourist property. I can't find that at present but from wha...

Re: Any one seen a Honda 400 Four on Crete?

I think Old Codger Two is thinking more of this model , Jeff, or this one or this one . This one is a twin cylinder model just after the 400 4, so not exactly what I think you are looking for, but it is cheap and hence presumably needs work. All the others are rather expensive. I think I saw a nice ...

Re: Ratios of buildings dimensions and size and position of site

My topography has a box showing the calculation of permitted build area. There are two calculations, one for residential property and one for tourist property. It is based on breaking the plot down into smaller areas and applying a multiplier to each area so a plot double the size does not have doub...

Re: EHIC CARD LOST

Saddler, you haven't read all my comments. The writing in red wasn't there a few years ago. It's changed. As far as I am aware the NHS has always been a residence based healthcare scheme and EHIC was never intended to be used by people who had moved permanently abroad, although many people have sta...

Re: EHIC CARD LOST

As Warwick says it is not an EU benefit. It was 'foisted on' the UK being an EU law with which the UK was compelled as a member of the EU, to offer to UK citizens. So, not one of 'our' laws. As has been said, that's what the EU referendum was all about, taking control of our own laws. Tough. Bob. I...

Tax Cuts.

According to this ekathimerini article , those of us who are tax resident in Greece should see a tax cut next year. Can anyone understand what the red bit of this statement copied from the article means? The tax cuts planned concern a series of measures that will see all taxpayers paying less tax ne...
