Re: Superbyke 200cc Quad

You say the Quad is UK registered. Unless someone is going to buy it & return with it to the UK, then it would be illegal to use it here in Greece, unless the original inporter re-registers it here on Greek plates. Only the original owner of the UK registration can do that here. And yes, quad bi...

Re: Hot tubs and Kayaks

Sorry & way off of post, but after all the doom & gloom of the Brexit posts etc, I had a good laugh at your post! My mind automatically went to thoughts of years ago & the adverts & requests for inflatabile "ladies"

Re: DOG KENNELS

I use Dorothea, a German lady, who has a small kennels business on the outskirts of Dafnes, about a 20 minute drive from Heraklion airport.
She doesn't advertise anywhere, her reccomendations are all by word of mouth. PM me if you would like her mobile number, she speaks English.

Re: Exchanging residence certificates for biometric residence cards

My understanding is that this will apply to PERMANENT residents in Greece.

Re: The Far East

I knew what standard Hotel Zakros was, the owners were lovely, the room was almost clean, smears on windows & mirrors, clean sheets, towels etc, the fridge was far from pleasant, with a really bad smell, the aircon worked after a fashion, but I was unable to alter the temperature. The ensuite ba...

Re: The Far East

Guy M, I stayed in Zakros itself, at Hotel Zakros, as I was visiting a friend who lives there. It's
a bit of a dive to be honest, but it only cost 52.5 euros for a 3 night stay, including breakfast and all I wanted was a base as I was out with my friend most of the time.

Re: Greek Driving Licence

I've recently received my Greek driving licence, which I exchanged my UK one for. It took 6 months to come through. The licencing office in Heraklion told me, the biggest delay was from the UK, they took 4 months or more to reply & confirm my UK one was valid & what categories I had on it. I...

Re: The Will of the People

OK, speaking as a retired Civil Servant, albeit from a politically based family, my father at 92 years old has recently become a Parish councillor & stood around 60 years ago for Parliament. I worked for HMC&E, then HMRC, then UKBA then UKBF, before I could take it no more & was in the f...

Re: IKA and AMKA

My understanding of this, is that they have NOT retracted the rights from people regarding AMKA, they have just rescinded the simpification process for acquiring an AMKA number from non EU citizens, illegal immigrants & refugees to what it was 1 month ago. I am NOT saying I agree, but it's not a...

Re: External Villa Painting

I have never heard of this, if something sounds too good to be true, it's normally a BIG con. Ask the firm to give you details of their satisfied customers, tell them you want to see examples of their work, especially a house they did 15 years ago, that still looks perfect!!!! I think they will be r...
