Re: Gluten Free Dairy Free

Hello JayCee, I live here 50 % of the year and I'm Coeliac. There is a limited amount of gluten free food available in shops here. Mainly pasta and bread and some biscuits/crackers and oats. I buy M and S bread mix and bring it back with me and maybe granola. You definitely won't find the range avai...

Re: Felling Cypress trees

I'm not a tree hugger or anything, I just don't like the wanton destruction of something beautiful just because someone knows they are above the law and can get away with it. It was a lovely tree. And it did allegedly have some degree of protection. Allegedly. Anyway I am over it. If if complain the...

Re: Felling Cypress trees

Thanks Bob, really appreciate the information. When we first moved here five years ago there was a large Cypress tree making the road to our house narrow. People we knew said it was likely to incur a fine if we removed it. We had no intention of removing and so didn't because it is lovely. It is suc...

Re: Felling Cypress trees

No. Not a lot of point... I just wanted to know the rules so if it is illegal I can tell someone so he doesn't take down any more! He doesn't strike me as the kind of man who would welcome any input from a woman ;)

Felling Cypress trees

Hi, I was vaguely under the impression that it was illegal, indeed that it carried a 1,000 euro fine to fell a Cypress tree in the Apokoronas region. So yesterday a 'neighbour' lopped down a beautiful 70 foot specimen that we had previously enjoyed the sight of. Now in its place there is a gaping ch...

Re: DPD telephone number Chania

Thanks, very helpful. managed to get hold a very helpful lady who told me the courier had tried to phone me twice yesterday. They hadn't and I told her this when she explained the two parcels wouldn't now be delivered until after Christmas. Given the courier was in Vrísses and my telephone number wa...

DPD telephone number Chania

Hi, Can anyone help me with the DPD telephone number for Chania? I am expecting a parcel. It has my telephone number on it. They haven't called me but have stated in the tracking page that my address is incorrect and they can't deliver. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you :)

Re: Capital Control Issues

Thanks Andrew. It would otherwise seem impossible to sell a house here even if you could find a buyer. I certainly wouldn't want money in a Greek bank while I sat transferring 420 euro a week :) still a bit confused about the capital gains because like others have said there is confusing information...

Re: Capital Control Issues

Am I right in thinking that if you sell your property to anyone other than a Greek person that the money can exchange hands outside of Greece? How would that affect tax? Don't taxes, like capital gains, have to be paid before the sale can be finalised? Ok I understand that capital gains are unlikely...

Re: Cost of an OTE line

Hi, We now have our OTE line and an excellent internet connection after putting up with a Tooway system for four and a half years. We didn't go for the OTE line at the time we moved into the property because of the need for new poles and OTE not giving us a fixed price for the work. Having been ripp...

Re: Bonfires

Would be interested in the official rule on this. We have seen people making fires near where we live but also understand that we shouldn't until after end October. One person right next to their house !

Re: A website listing British expat property and used cars for sale?

Hello Richard, We have considered selling our house and one of the main issues we face is the lack of Estate Agents we can trust in our area. Wouldn't put our house for sale with any of them. We would be very interested in your idea of a website advertising properties for sale but not only to the UK...
