Re: Hotels for Christmas.

Case Leone is very highly recommended. Mmmmmm! Absolutely, and we had a bonus; a free upgrade to "The Honeymoon Suite" with roof terrace overlooking the harbour. With one of us 70+ and the other close behind we discovered that, despite being quite fit and without mobility problems, ascend...

Re: Hotels for Christmas.

Are you looking for something in Xania? If so you're unlikely to find anywhere offering full board and, broadly speaking, there's a choice of boutique hotels of which there are many, especially around the harbour area. For the last five years we've stayed for 4 or 5 nights at: Casa del Porto in Sint...

Re: TENT ONLY BASIC CAMPING SITE

This is Greece so you're bound to need a licence and tents scattered over the land are going to be noticed by (or reported to) some authority sooner or later. It doesn't sound too comfortable for winter either.

Re: Day trip to Santorini

I met a German couple holidaying here a month ago. ................. In the day the cruise liners came in and it was like ‘playing sardines’ everywhere. - They could not wait to get back to Kriti. They did say though that is is a beautiful island. Just returned from 14 days on a gorgeous island ver...

Re: Income Tax Submissions

No, DWP do not send out any form of statement. You get a letter around this time of year telling you what your weekly payment rate will be starting from X April. We received ours a couple of weeks ago. I presume that you mean that you received the letter informing you of the payment rate from X Apr...

Re: OTE Landline contracts

Your OTE contract must have been renewed more recently than 17 years ago if you have VDSL50! It didn't exist back then? Quite right Carol. I originally had 56K dial up which was upgraded to ADSL as soon as it became available. Then, a few years ago (don't remember exactly when) OTE phoned, singing ...

Re: OTE Landline contracts

When contacted by anyone speaking Greek I usually explain, in Greek, that I am English and ask if they speak English. Sometimes they switch immediately to English and sometimes they hang up. Exactly what I do and usually the response to "Μιλάτε Αγγλικά;" is, "Of course." This ti...
