    • Early summer holiday.

      Greece Jan 11, 2017 at 3:05 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, an old town nearby.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      We'd love to visit a Greek island, also considering Italy and France, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!

    • Kefalonia or not?

      Greece Jan 1, 2017 at 4:40 AM

      Dear VT Fine Folk:

      Anyone here spent much time on the island of Kafalonia (aka: "Cephalonia") in the Ionian Islands (& Sea).
      Any advice?
      For, say, a one or two week stay in the spring -- is Lixouri or Argostoli best? Looks like Argostoli has a loud,
      busy airport near downtown? Or Not?

      Perhaps Zakythos (aka: "Zante") just to the south of Kefalonia is better?

      Thanks ahead of time for all & any tips!

      by esthtcn1 Online Now Nov 4, 2014 at 10:02 PM

      Hi, I'm uk citizen and have been living in virginia bch va usa as us citizen. My family live in uk and I'm wanting to live closer to them without living in uk! Im female 64 yrs. I will be living off my uk/usa pension/social security. I will need to feel safe & secure, so interested in crime rates, where best to live and not!
      What are requirements for living permanently in greece as uk citizen. Can I work or open a small business, I'm in skin care field offering customized facial treatments & retail skin care products.
      What kind of money will I be looking at for accommodation, food, utilities, travel etc. Are there theaters close buy? Does samos still have things to do after tourists have left. (I'm not a drinker, so not interested in bar scene). I would like to get involved in the community, I like to keep busy but also love my quiet time too. I love learning new skills & hobbies and enjoy people. I might even be interested in an online business, if I could figure out what type, and it would help financially, (any ideas?) Also, how difficult is it to open a bank account and have pension deposited?
      If you have any Information that would be beneficial I would appreciate it.
      My sister and I are planning a visit this year to visit a couple of islands or so. I'd love to hear about your experiences and wisdom. Kind regards, linda

      Thanks!

    • Information on Balos

      by babyellie Online Now May 19, 2006 at 4:53 AM

      Hi,
      We have booked a holiday for july this year and are staying in Balos, we enjoy the quieter areas and are thinking of hiring a car to get out and about but are unsure if we should get a car from the airport and drive to Balos given that we have not been before and are unaware of the area or directions. So my questions are.

      Would it be easy to get from the airport to Balos driving ourselves or should we get a taxi and any idea on prices and time to reach Balos.

      Also if anyone knows where we could get more information about this area it would be great as it is off the beaten track a little we are finding it hard to get much info.

      Any information anyone may have would be very much appriciated

      Thanks x

      Hotel on Samos?

      by AcornMan Online Now Apr 30, 2004 at 12:10 PM

      My wife and I are looking for inexpensive accommodations on Samos for about 5-7 nights. We would like to be near a beach, but we don't to be right on it. We just want a clean, quiet place with a private toilet and shower and decent rates. I do not know which part of the island we'll be staying on, so any location is fine.
