Re: Photos from Agios Ioannis in the 70´s

"I am trying to make a web site with some text and lots of pictures about the village in the late 70s. Slow work but I might finish it sometime... " Jassou Tone, it would be great to have such a collection of old pictures from Agios Ionannis. Thank you very much or your effort. Apart from ...

Re: Livania cafe

Jassas, from what I heard through the grapevine, the self service is organized by the the owner of the taverna Akrogiali at Lykos beach. Unfortunately, I don't have news about Eike. In September, we were very pleased that the fridge was even stocked with FIX alcohol-free beer. A really nice refreshm...

Re: A few observations

As far as I understand it (and also people in Sfakia) that the outside use of masks is only mandatory in the towns of Chania and Heraklion, and immediate surroundings. The rule does not apply to the Sfakia region or to Crete in general. From what I noticed during our 4 weeks stay on Crete, the Greek...

Re: Possible Medicane later this week

Nothing spectacular at Lykos this afternoon. It is slightly more windy now, but so far no indications for a storm. (tu)

Re: Half job on the road network of Chora Sfakion

Apart from the part down to Chora Sfakion (or up) that Lennert has indicated there are stretches of road work on the road to Kallikrates and also to Frangocastello. So, altogether we are looking forward to better roads in this area.

Re: Taxi to Chora Sfakion

A cheaper option might be to take a rental car. With Sfakia Tours you can arrange to pick up a car at Heraklion Airport und return it at Chora Sfakion. We booked on their Web-Site.

Re: The upcoming Greek summer will be something like this - Part 2

Please forgive my ignorance - what are health interest stores or health stores? Why are they so critical to prevent the spread of Corona virus?

Re: Ferry timetables for the start of the season

At the moment I am not sure how reliable this timetable is, since the Daskalogiannis still seems to be anchored in Souda. The smaller boats will hardly manage to cope with a larger number of people hiking through the Samaria Gorge. I'm curious.... Erno, could you please check the link to load down t...

Re: Harbour Webcam

Quite often I also have a look at the Paleochora webcams. They are hosted by Palaiochora.com, which seems to be an association of several business partners and / or the village of Paleochora (my Greek is by far not good enough to read their homepage). So I'm thinking whether it might be worthwhile t...

Re: The upcoming Greek summer will be something like this

These measures and precaution sound very reasonable, in my opinion. Going to lonely beaches and staying away from busy and overly touristic centres meet our preferences on Crete anyways. So, we decided to think optimistic - and booked a flight in september. And the hotels we contacted for booking we...
