    • Help choosing a village?!

      Rhodes (Island) 5 hours ago

      Hi All,

      My partner and I will be visiting Rhodes for just over 2 weeks towards the end of May and are struggling to find the best place to stay.

      We will be hiring a car and planning on exploring to find secluded more intimate beaches but love the history and hustle and bustle of the old town. We want to stay clear of the new town but since we will have a car to park are concerened about booking to stay in the old town.

      We were thinking about villages just outside of the old town so we can travel in in the afternoon/evenings. Does anyone have any suggestions of alternative ideas?

      We aren't big fans of built up resorts and ideally want to stay in a traditional but nice b&b??

      No amount of research seems to answer our questions :{

      Thanks in advanced
      Lauren :)

    • Best place to stay in Samos/recommended things to do/see?

      Greece Feb 14, 2015 at 3:39 AM

      So after much trawling the net and great suggestions from fellow travellers on here have managed to decide on Samos as our chosen summer holiday destination (it seems to have a good balance of all that we are looking for from our holiday...beautiful beaches/scenery, ruins/sights, day trips and most importantly real Greek charm).
      Before proceed with a booking wanted some advice on a good place to stay.
      We are a small family, not into resort style/18-30 holidays! We will not be driving so need advice on which part would be best to stay as a base (would like at least a beach/village with shops/taverns nearby) and can then obv take the bus/boat for daytrips etc and prob not too far from the airport (don't mind about 30/40mins away).
      Also could you recommend the sights/trips too! We are looking at 7-10days.
      Many thanks in adv :-)

    • Advice for best island for family holiday in Greece

      Greece Feb 13, 2015 at 6:54 AM

      Hello, we are looking to visit Greece towards the end of July. We last visited Greece 7years ago, went island hopping (Santorini, Naxos & Ios) my son now 9yrs, was only 2 at the time so doesn't have any recollection of the amazing time we had.

      We will visit towards the end of July for 7-10days.

      Our requirements, so that you have a better understanding of what we are looking for in a holiday ...

      • Needs to be a place that has an aiport (doesn't have to be international as can transfer from Athens). I don't really like the idea of ferries as think it becomes complicated trying to get flight times to coincide with ferry times, what if there are delays/bad weather etc.)
      • We definately want to be in a place where we feel like we are in Greece, eat Greek food, hear&seeGreek music /dancing and see Greek architecture ,ruins etc)
      • We DON'T want to be anywhere where it gets roudy ie 18-30s clubs. We want a good atmosphere but not 'Brits behaving badly sort'! (Yes we visited Ios but only for 2 night as we had friends who ran a hotel there and we managed to escape to a hidden beach, think it was called Manganari beach which was beautiful but wouldn't have chosen it otherwise, also was in the 18-30 bracket then).
      • We want a balance between (beach/swimming/exploring/history/nature) ie visiting beautiful turquoise crystal clear beaches, being able to explore narrow winding streets/rustic charm ofvillages, seeing olives being pressed, churches, taking day trips etc (I understand that we will not get it all but just done ideas
      • We are NOT interested in a 'plastic holiday' in the sun or 'kids clubs'
      • As for accomodation we would prefer to be in a smallish family run hotel where you are looked after, with at least B&B and a pool. Happy to eat out/ buy from local supermarket. Definately nowhere that is too big/resort style!

      I don't want to stay at the places we've been to already but wouldn't mind doing a day trip to them again(if suggested place was in Cyclades) for instance know my son would love to see the volcano in Santorini.

      • We don't want to drive so somewhere that has good transport is important.

      Any suggestions for a great well balanced family holiday in a proper Greek environment would be greatly appreciated :-)

      If you do have any suggestions please could you be specific as to the island and place as sometimes there are nicer/more suitable parts.

      I have looked at Paxos which seems lovely with old Greek charm but perhaps not enough to do / complicated with ferry? We have also looked at Paros but then have read quite a bit that it can be more for the party goers but has good transport.

      Thanks in advance! I look forward to hearing your suggestions :-)

    • Drive from Athens airport to Delphi, then Meteora, then Athens Airport

      Delphi Aug 13, 2012 at 7:59 PM

      Hi everyone,

      We are going to Greece 08/31 (arrive 9am)- 09/07 (leave at 11am) and we want to drive to Delphi from the airport, then to Meteora from there and then back to Athens to visit acropolis. Do any of you know how long/safe these drives are (Airport to Delphi, Delphi to Meteora, and Meteora to Airport). I'm also a little worried about driving at night if the roads are dangerous mountain roads :) Also would 1 night in Delphi and 1 night in Meteora be enough to at least see a couple of the main areas? I know more time would be much better but we don't have the time available. We are going to Santorini for 2 nights so we don't have too much time left. We might drop Meteora but we don't know when/if we will ever be back to Greece so we would really, really, love to see that beautiful place. Also, do I need a special driving license to rent a car there?
      Thank you everyone for your help :)

      How to adopt a kitten from Delphi???

      Delphi Nov 13, 2011 at 6:50 PM

      I visited Delphi a couple of weeks ago - I had a great time. I know this sounds crazy, but I met the cutest kitten i would love to take home to live a long and healthy life in California. I have to go back to Athens in a couple of weeks so I was wondering if anyone has ever done anything like this. I know you need to have a vet check them out a month before you come to the US (which would be a challenge).

      I know this sounds crazy, but I thought I would try. Does anyone take care of them or feed them right now? It would be great to help this kitten that was so friendly. Thanks!

      I would be travelling from Athens to Delphi and halting at delphi for the night.
      The next day I have a late evening ferry to catch from Athens -Piraeus.

      if so:
      1. Is it possible to do this by Buses or do we need to hire a cab for this.
      2.How much is the travel time from delphi to Olympia and again from Olympia to Athens in both these modes of transport?

      Hi,
      I've found virtually impossible to find a hotel in Delfi/Arachova
      in April 6-10, on Easter Holidays. Does it mean there is nothing
      available , or there are small apartments without Internet?

      Somebody knows abou Aiolos Hotel - it is the only bookable, and it
      is suspectful

      I'm looking to catch a bus from athens to delphi late saturday night. I've read some previous posts and saw that Ktel has a bus, but their website is temporarily suspended. Does anyone know if there is a bus and where/how I can book it? thanks
