    • Koufonisia and Naxos accommodations

      Greece Jun 10, 2015 at 9:22 PM

      When I posed my question today, I forgot to put Koufonisia in the header along with Naxos. If you have been to Koufonisia, please read the paragraphs below:

      We will be in Naxos for five nights as part of our trip to Greece in September, and we have decided this might be a place to splurge on our hotel. We have booked most all of our other accommodations, and I know I can look at all kinds of hotel sites, but I'd really like a recommendation for a small hotel or B&B (I know they don't call them that in Greece, but can't think of the term right now) locally owned, that has rooms with patios with a view of the ocean. Anywhere between 100 and 150 euros would probably be our price range, and we're more interested in view, nice and helpful hosts, and not too many stairs, than in any fancy large place.

      We would also like the same type of recommendation for Koufonisia if anyone has been there. I understand we can go there without reservations and find a place spontaneously, but I'd like to have some recommendations as a starting point.

      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Hi, I'm planning on taking my two young children to Stoupa next year for 2 weeks staying at Evi apartments. They will be 18 months and 3 at the time, just wondering if there's any play parks or play areas for them. Just returned from Crete where even the cafes and restaurants had play areas in so we were very spoiled. Thankyou in advance.

      IMPORTANT read about RED BEACH!

      Santorini Island 18 hours ago

      IMPIS (Institute for the Study and Monitoring of Santorini Volcano) has sent a letter to the members of the Hotel Association Santorini. They want to draw everyone's attention of the status of Red Beach in Akrotiri:

      "We would like to inform you and ask you to inform clients of this situation, and that access to the beach is extremely dangerous due to landslides, to avoid any accident with incalculable consequences for the island" They ask the members of the Hotel Association to contact the authorities and to take the nessesary steps to protect visitors from the enormous consequences that will occur in an accident due to a possible landslide.

      The authorities have put up signs at the red beach but tourists does not respect these and still walk down. Very soon they will need to put a fence!

    • Current situation with banks in Crete

      Crete Island Jun 29, 2015 at 1:16 AM

      My Son is departing for Crete next Sunday and as parents we're worried about the current currency situation. He does not have a credit card only a bank debit card. Which currency is preferred - is it still Euros or would US$ GB £ be a better option. If local people could keep me updated I would be much appreciated. Much has been heard about what is happening in Athens but how much is this directly affecting Crete. I note that the banks will be closed for at least a week - difficult to distinguish fact from fiction in the media

      Hoping someone can keep a worried mum up-dated. Please no generalised info - hard facts as to what is happening.
      Many thanks

      Chalkidiki - in which town/village to stay, what to do and visit and accommodation-reasonable price

      Hi all VT's

      Please help me with some tips about Chalkidiki. I am going there with friends at the end of September but have absolutely no idea which town might be good to stay. It should be on the beach not inside the penincula. We are looking for reasonable accommodation and are quite flexible - campings, private accommodation, hotels, hostels - everything is all right as far as the price is reasonable.

      What are the biggest attractions except the monasteries. What is Chalkidiki known for and are there green areas?

      Many thanks in advance.

    • Transfer from Thessaloniki to Toroni, Sithonia

      Hey everybody,

      I'm going to spend my holidays in Toroni this year. I'm arriving on Sunday, August 2nd 2009 at the airport in Thessaloniki. I want to go to Toroni by bus, is it right that the bus station of "KTEL Halkidiki" is no longer in the city of Thessaloniki but near the airport now? Does anyone know the address of the bus station? I want to go to the bus station by taxi, how long will it take and how much will it cost? Whether I can find a schedule for the busses to Toroni in summer nor I can find how much this will cost. I guess it will take about 3 hours to get to Toroni, is this right? I hope someone can help me :-)

      Thank you!

      From Thessaloniki Airport to Chalkidiki, Kassandra

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Jun 20, 2005 at 1:04 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I have a problem and I hope, someone can give me an advice:
      a friend of mine will go to Greece in July. Her final destination is Chalkidiki, Kassandra, but she will arrive at Thessaloniki Airport. The problem is that she will arrive fairly late (around 11 pm) and the travel agent told her that she will have to hire a car to get into town. I wonder, if that is true, because ususally, airports have their shuttle buses which run until very late.
      Does anyone know, if there are buses going to Chalkidiki around midnight or the early morning hours? Otherwise, my friend would have to hire a car for three days which should cost her around 180 Euro!!! I can't imagine that there is no other option to get into town?!?
