Re: Question for American citizens.

Hi there, I have friends who are an American couple and they decided to go the Golden Visa route. Which is probably the easiest way around it for Americans in Greece. You need to buy a property for 250k or more and then you get your residences. I do suggest you make sure all your paperwork is in or...

Re: Cigarette smoke issue

If it’s annoying you either ask them to stop or move it’s quite simple. A smoker will not be offended. Why should I have to ask them to stop when smoking is not allowed int he first place and signs posted clearly saying so? Why should I have to move just because somebody insists on doing something ...

Re: Cigarette smoke issue

I would add two things to the discussion so far. i) Inhaling smoke is a real problem for asthmatics like myself. If we’re eating indoors and someone is smoking on our table or very nearby, it takes three full days for my lung function (as confirmed by my peak flow meter) to return to normal afterwa...

Cigarette smoke issue

Hello, we currently live in Malaga Spain, it is unfortunate that we can not enjoy the outdoor seating's of all the nice Restaurants/Cafes/Bars that Malaga offers due to Cigarette Smoking. 9 out of 10 are smokers... so if we sit outside of a restaurant all tables around you filled with people smoking...

Re: West or East

Panormos (20mins east of Rethymnon) is lovely and quiet. Perama, 8km inland from Panormos is also worth a look. Both are in a good central location so easy access to the east and west. Panormos has 3 or 4 mini-markets, bakery and butchers shops but locals head to Perama which is the nearest commerc...

Re: What can i get for 300,000 Euros

When I looked in 2004, from Siteia to west of Chania, the market was so disparate I am surprised you could detect any trend at all. It seems to be based on "Think of a number and double it". In some cases the thought process seems to be: "Well if he'll give what we asked for it he'll...

Re: What can i get for 300,000 Euros

About 15 km south west of Chania. Part of the decision process, not in any particular order: 1 Large enough village to have facilities so you could live without leaving it if you needed to. That's proving quite useful at the moment. 2 Flat. I no longer ever use the words "walking" and &qu...

Re: West or East

This is nearly impossible to answer. I’d really recommended taking a good look at the West, to around 30km West and East of Chania, the East from Ag Nik to Sitia and beyond. The South coast is much less populated so fewer towns/tavernas/shops, but I know two different people who have chosen to hide...

Re: What can i get for 300,000 Euros

Come and rent first, travel around, get a feel for the place and then decide where you want to be. €300,000 will buy you a detached property over 100 sqm with some land and probably a small swimming pool virtually anywhere on the island. If it is inside a village boundary the land will probably be ...
