    • 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.

      IMPORTANT read about RED BEACH!

      Santorini Island 7 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

      Hi all. Last minute questions (of a basic nature) due to last minute booking of holiday to Petra!

      1. We are 3 adults, 1 child. How much can we expect to pay for lunch and dinner(child normally eats at least as much as an adult) and how expensive are the drinks?

      2. How are the buses regarding regularity, coverage and cost? Would like to travel a bit, but not enough to warrant hiring a car.

      We'll be there in 2 weeks time, so if anyone could answer, that'd be great.

      Skopelos Nov 25, 2007 at 5:32 AM

      Now booked up for 2 weeks in early July to Skopelos and looking at the possibility of a night on Alonissos. We will be hiring a jeep for a few days to reach those small rocky coves and a boat for a day to reach those with no road access. Before I start contacting companies though, does anyone have any preferences as to hire companies for both the jeep and the boat?
      Also I see there are a few boat trips from Skopelos for the day......any in particular that anyone would recommend?
      I'd be very interested in an around the island boat trip to help me decide what area I'd need to hire my own boat from as to which bays I need to see. The same applies to Alonissos and any trips to the deserted Islands in the marine park.
      When I hire a boat on Skopelos do they allow you to go across to Agh Georgios Isl and Mikro Isl and would combining these with the coastline around Cape Kiourto and southwards then back along to Skopelos town be a possible day trip or would it be a little too much?

      Thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated

      Hi, I'm a woman travelling solo to Lesvos this spring, for 2-3 weeks. Considering late March-until after Easter. Anyone have an opinion of the best time to go in spring? I am seeing the best flight prices for late March, but am concerned that accomodations will still be closed for the winter? Will it be crazy over Easter or is that a special time to visit and experience the culture? I am going off season to avoid crowds and save money. I am also a jeweler and would love to connect with some local metalsmiths. If anyone has a tip on how to do that beforehand, I would be most grateful.
