Rental Chania/Vamos

We have been in Sitia for a few weeks looking at the area and considering purchasing land/property. We would now like to stay in the Chania/Vamos area for a minimum of 4-6 weeks initially and perhaps we can extend this to 6 months, from around 1st October. We would be looking for a self contained un...

Earth tremor Sitia, 27.08.17

Second one we have experienced in 7 weeks of being here, any reports from anywhere else?
This was time it was certainly stronger than the previous one, our Greek neighbour was somewhat concerned!

Re: Wind

Yes Bob, I have read it and would recommend it to others. It is tucked away somewhere in one of the bookcases. You have just remained me to re-read it! Places like Plakias and Frangokastello on the south west coast are notorious for strong winds Raw, but weather on the south coast is often good whe...

Wind

Hello, The title is not related to a a personal issue! We are in Sitia and have been here for around 7 weeks. In that time we have had perhaps 5 days without it being windy. It is a huge surprise to us as when we came to Crete last year for 6 weeks we never really noticed it being particularly windy...

Re: postal service

I had a letter sent to me but as we are in a rental property currently and are considering if we wish to move somewhere else on the island I had it sent to the PO at Sitia. The were happy to receive the letter on my behalf and I had 15 days in which to go and collect it. Now that is super service. :)

Re: Earthquake

Yes, yesterday evening, our apartment we are renting shook for a moment or two.
Not the first we have experienced. We also had a couple of tremors when we lived in France.

Sailing

Can anyone advise if there are sailing clubs or is it possible to team up with people to go sailing?
I did a bit of sailing in France and I thinking of getting back into it again.
i am currently located in Sitia, but we may move to another area of the island in 2/3 months time.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Registering with a doctor/Healthcare

A little update: We did go to the IKA office in Sitia and the lady was very helpful indeed. Yes we need an S1, which we will not get, but that is not a deal breaker. I consider any information, good or bad to be a positive step. With knowledge it is possible to move one way or the other, without kno...

Re: Registering with a doctor/Healthcare

Thank you for your reply Carol.

I had read the information you had provided, then when we received the advice from Greekbay we became confused.

We will go to the local office and see what they say.

Best wishes

Hello, Well here goes! We are considering moving to Crete, we have rented an apartment and got ourselves comfortable. Now we are starting to investigate the logistics of the move.

Oh my goodness, what a mess......Greece

Yesterday we traveled from the Corinth to Piraeus and took the ferry over to Heraklion. Whilst driving through Athens we were shocked to see so many homeless people, living in tents under flyovers. But worse was to come, we drove into a Lidl car park and actually saw families living in vans and truc...
