General information required

Postby Brynanwyl » Wed Feb 05, 2020 9:04 am

Hi all,
We are in the process if finalizing our purchase of our house in crete.
Can anyone help with the following as we are due to go out in a couple of months to do general work on the property which is in Milatos.
Closest furniture stores(bedding,kitchen,sofa,etc)
Will need someone to set up tv and dish/ you know of any independent guys who do this in the area?
Finally the house is partially furnished.
If some furniture is not required how/where can we dispose of them.
Any other useful information will also be much appreciated.
Bryn & Sabina Jones

Hello and welcome to the island!

I don’t live in your area so cannot be specific. The norm here regarding unwanted items including furniture is to leave it by one of the communal bins and then if anyone wants it they will take it away. Or you could ask your local church or mayor if they collect for the less fortunate. I known that in our area we can provide clothes and food In this way, so perhaps you could ask around locally.

Someday is now : )

Apokoronas Council has a phone number for collection of large articles to avoid dumping by bins....although it still happens!! Your Council might have the same? Have they got a website you could check?

Welcome to Crete

You are between Hersonissos and Agios Nikolaos. I am not certain how good the stores are in Hersonnissos. However, there are a couple of good Furniture Stores in Ag. Nik, Also a shop, run by an English lady, who can provide most of your soft Furnishes. Just before Lidl on the left side there is also a very good store for Kitchen utensils etc (They supply many Hotels and Taverneras) It is an Aladdins cave, they are very helpful.
Also in Ag.Nik there is a very good TV man who can provide Satellite dishes, and TV aerials, he will also install them. I highly recommend him, his prices are very reasonable.
Ag.Nik also has a Charity shop that may be able to take any unwanted items.

If you require further details of these stores please send me a PM.

Malia May be able to provide some of your requirements, I have no experience except it is or was quite a costly place.,

Good luck with your move.

Enjoy living in Crete. Hitek are down the west of the island but they do satellite dish installation for receiving UK TV all over Greece. Very nice people. Worth contacting them if that is the sort of thing you want.
