We have installed electrical heating cables under the tiles in all the rooms of our house and are very happy with the result. Total cost (all included) 50 euro per square meeter when installed in a new house. Each room has its own thermostat and can be set at individual level and with a timer so tha...

We had our house "next door", in Plaka built by Europa Eiendom and are very happy with the quality of the build. Suggest you call Thanos at +3069445669 and say hi from the Norwegians in Villa Boreas in Plaka. He has the key to our house and is free to show it to potential customers as long...

Snow chains is something that will only take you out of a situation where your car gets stuck and certainly not meant for driving longer distances! If conditions are really bad the only thing that will help is proper winter tires as these so called all season tires are neither good for summer condit...

Generally, no speed limits on German & Austrian motorways and, in particular, no tolls so quick and cheap compared with French major routes. Have been to Austria every year last six/seven years and never seen a motorway without a speed limit and also you have to pay toll! I also happen to know ...

So if the UK or Greece leave the EU , there may not be an automatic right to reside in Greece, and I revert to my earlier post that perhaps a maximum stay of 90 days will be allowed in one period - similar to the USA ?
