Calor gas

We brought a Thurcroft gas stove with us to Crete from the UK, which has 7kg bottles. We have to use an adapter to have them filled. There is an Autogas station in Galatas-Daratsos, not far from Hania where we refilled until about 2 years ago when it became a problem. The gas station is no longer 'a...

Vodafone internet dongle

Ask in the village itself. We only have a few people with internet connection here, but they knew when the Vodafone 3G arrived and told me - I still had a Cosmote 2G but made a swift change! I agree you should try it - in the house they will live in - to check reception. I'd be happy to help out wit...

power cuts

We have this happen regularly throughout the winter in our village too. Kilkis is right, it's maintenance or new installation etc. There are usually notices posted on the poles warning us. They are in Greek, but once you recognise them, if you don't read Greek, you can see the date and estimated tim...

Food distribution for the Poor

Like you I don't know the name. However, there is a place in Maleme (near Hania) where hot food is delivered three or four times each week and dry goods are brought and distributed to 13 'local families'. I understand it's a sensitive issue (not surprisingly) and has to handled carefully for these f...

Query re tax

We're in a very similar position - two UK state pensions, a very small personal pension and no other monies elsewhere in the world. After twelve years, we've just 'officially' become Greek tax residents and we too will pay tax - approximately 1,500 euros, according to our accountant. I will pay abou...

sewing machine repair

I took the machine to Singer in Hania when the problem started. They found a broken 'gear' and said a) it would be difficult to find a part b) it would be difficult to replace c) offered to sell me a new Singer 'at a good price'. I really don't want a Singer so we found the part on ebay and my husba...

Sewing machine repair

I'm looking for someone to reset the timing on my Elna sewing machine. In the Hania area, but not the Singer shop in the town centre. Any ideas ?

Greek tax residency query

I have just been reading the item on Tax Liability, on the LiC website, for those designated as 'resident in Greece'. Is the collection of 'daily living receipts' still required, and if so does the exception of 'transportation' mean petrol receipts can't be used ?

Temporary internet connection

We don't have wifi where we live, so is there any way a visitor can purchase a temporary internet connection whilst they are here ? I have a dongle but that will be in use.
