Re: Info for getting married in Crete

I am sure that there will be some guidance online that will tell you everything you want to know but here is my experience: My wife and I were married in the Town Hall in Palekastro, near Sitia. We were the only English couple to be married there and probably the last as the Town Hall no longer exis...

Re: Round and Round We Go

This debate seems to have moved a long way from considering the impact of Brexit on 'Living in Crete' !

Re: Samaria gorge friends

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful walk down the Samaria Gorge about 18 years ago - however, we needed to buy up half a pharmacy to recover over the next few days !

Re: Sitia Airport

Haven't posted for some time but, as an annual visitor to Palekastro, I do keep an eye on the forum. In one sense it is good to see the new terminal open (I did rather like the old one) but I do fear that this may speed up the Minoan Group's plans for golf courses and hotels set in the peace and qui...

Re: Syriza Grants Legal Status to Gay Couples

So, so pleased that Syriza is doing this. Sadly, the bigotry expressed by one person on this thread is the same bigotry that results in innocent people being beheaded and burned alive. As someone has already intimated, it is how we live and how we respect others that counts - not blind adherence to ...

New airport at Heraklion

I am sure this has been a regular topic in the past but I just wondered if there was any updates on the building of the new international airport at Kastelli above Heraklion. Wikipedia suggests it is due to open in 2014 while the front page of the existing airport's website says 2015. Any news ?

Hotels in Rethymnon

Please can anyone recommend a good hotel in Rethymnon. I am ashamed to say that in all my years visiting Crete, I have yet to get to know the town. I have some friends who wish to find a nice, comfortable hotel within easy walking reach of harbour and beach (if possible). Thanks in advance for any s...
