Re: Sfakia report, Oct 10

Nice to see that the "honesty" system is working with the Livaniana tavern. This is good news on the practical side but the long chats with Elk (hope the spelling is right) put the cherry on the cake for this unique tavern. Hope there will be some human presence with a new owner who likes ...

Re: Sfakia Report

Enjoy your stay and hopefully we'll be spoilt with your great photos. p.s. looks like the harbour webcam lens needs a clean. For several days the image has been very "foggy". If you know the person responsible perhaps you could mention it to them. However, the beach webcam is showing clear...

Re: Greek hoteliers at odds with Booking.com over commission policy

Interesting. Unfortunately, these online booking companies have worked their way into system and are eating away at the profits of the hotel owners. In most cases, it is the hotel owner who carries the cost of their service. Here in France, I don't know how they structure their final bill to the hot...

BIG thanks to those who have helped to restore our means (the webcam)...

Re: Livania cafe

Thanks for the info. Some news on Eike would be nice. Hope the customers respect the "honesty" system so that the cafe can continue to offer a self-service to hikers and others.

Re: Tourism drops in Greece after 5 record years

Totally agreed. "More" can reach the point where it is simply greed. Let's hope that the limited space (land surface/sea frontage etc) available in Sfakia will keep things more or less as they are today. Let's hope ..... let's hope, but greed can be a very powerful force.

Re: An end to reduced tax on tsikoudia (raki) and tsipouro

And so in Brussels big brother is looking over us and telling us what we have to do. Could this type of thing be one of the reasons that motivated BREXIT ??

Re: Imbros gorge taxi

Oh! calm, calm my children.
I suggest you all get a push bike to get from point A to point B and leave the taxis alone (and the honesty or dishonesty of the drivers also).
End of problem .... no? : and good for your health also.
Lets keep the forum bright, friendly and brotherly.
