This is an honest enquiry about renting a place for two to three months. Not quite sure how much they are willing to pay. Of course if I did give any indication then that might be jumped on as a price. It's a kind of how long is a piece of string type question. If somebody does have a place to rent ...

Looking for house for next year

A friend of mine is coming out next year, hopefully for about 3 months or so. They are looking for a house with up to four bedrooms, not far from the beach, not too far from Chania. And it would be nice if it had a pool. Easy, eh? Anybody got anything suitable for June/July/August next year?

Lexis language school

I did a six week course there in 2007. Our instructor was very good. The only thing was that the pace of the classes was a bit quick. We were a mixed class agewise from about 20 up to about 50 or so, so the learning levels were not very even. They also do private lessons (more expensive of course) w...

INTESOL ETC.

This may not seem to be a helpful reply but maybe the reason all the sites are down is that the course providers like INTESOL are finding it harder to get applicants because, once you qualify, after paying out your hard-earned cash to learn how to teach English in Greece, the qualification you have ...

I think it would also be a very good idea to rent for a while when you move, before you buy anything, as has probably been mentioned elsewhere on this forum. There can often be probems with purchasing property here or buying a site and having a house built. We only rented for a short time before buy...

I suppose when people say that you should check all eventualities that they may mean that if you live here full-time to be prepared for a certain amount of culture shock.

We live near Chania so of course we think this is the most scenic area. We are just west of Chania and everything in the whole northwest, west and soutwest is very accessible. Our house is just an hour's drive from the top of the Samaria gorge, and a short drive to the beach at Falasarna in the nort...

I live near Chania and even though I'm not involved in the tourist industry it seemed to be fairly busy in the Platanias, Agia Marina area this summer, west of Chania, so that might be an option for you if you have experience in the tourist end of things. I've also noticed on this forum that there a...
