Re: The missing farmer in Sfakia was murdered - Two arrests

Erno,
Any information on motive?
Sounds pretty gruesome.

Re: Top 10 Cretan food specialties you must try

Uhhmm! Very nice - not sure about the snails though!!
For the best pastry and sweet desserts, can you find better than Sifi Bolitis's at Ammos Apartments in Frango? His desserts are the best I have ever tasted.
Worth a visit.

Re: When are you coming to Crete (again) in 2018?

Arriving July. Leaving August.
We can't wait to stay in Andreas and Katerina's lovely haven from this crazy world.
The only thing I really HATE about Crete, especially Sfakia is leaving it!

Re: Two Cretan airports among Europe’s worst

What airports ANYWHERE are nice places these days?? OK, I've not been through Hania for a while and admit that Iraklion isn't great. Would it put me off visiting Crete? No way!! Consideration must be given to the huge demand due to Crete being so popular in summer, whilst in the off season, the dema...

Re: The new Spatial Plan for the roads, airports and ports of Crete

I hope the development is kind to Crete. To kill the 'golden goose' would be awful and irreversible. Crete is charming just the way it is, whether you prefer the north or south coast; the balance is about right. As the Americans would say, 'If it ain't broken, don't try to fix it'. Why welcome the c...

Re: Scuba near Frangocastello?

I will contact them now and mention your forum. Many thanks for the tip and so close to Frango too. Best wishes from Scotland to y...

Scuba near Frangocastello?

Hello Erno and Sfakia fans. This year, we missed out on our holidays to beloved Crete and ended up in Cyprus instead - long story. Cyprus did confirm at least just how much we love Crete and its people. Anyway, as a family, we did gain our PADI Open Water dive certificate. For next year, I am asking...
