Re: Dog tied up and literally wining and barking all day and night

Suddenely stopped on the fourth day and i could hear what i think was the same dog up behind us in a different direction but fainter and further away. Not much i can do now, just hope it doesnt happen again. If it does when out here again i will contact Aria. Thanks for the advice.

Re: Ryanair 2020

O no, just started flying from Birmingham because the flights were cheaper and at a more sociable time than Bristol. Is that all definite?

Dog tied up and literally wining and barking all day and night

Theres a very big house on the Xirosterni- Almyrida road and they have lots of dogs. No problem, but there is one dog tied up and yelping all day and night for 3 days now. We have been there but they say its not one of their dogs which is obviously not true and all a bit odd. Isnt it illegal now to ...

Re: Could this be true?

An old post, Warwick but you seem to be the expert and i wondered if the dreaded Brexit will make any difference. I and my partner own a villa here and a house in UK. I have not made a greek wiil, our lawyer said the uk one will do. When one of us dies, the other will inherit the properties. When we...

Re: Xirosterni cats

Any news on this? I was in Xirosterni just a few weeks ago and there were a few cats there but not as many as last year. I noticed lots of dry cat food along the wall as usual. I do hope they have not been poisoned, they looked quite big and healthy too. Is it really an offence now? I am surprised b...

Re: Garden furniture

I think our rattan is fake, ie plastic, but it just felt a bit softer to touch than real rattan which we found scratchy. I think there are lots of materials, some a bit better and more expensive than others. Time will tell how good it is i suppose. I put comfort above all else.

Re: Garden furniture

Some of those rattan sets have a table with a hard square cushion on top which matches the vushions on the seats. We got ours from Oikos in Chania.
