We are researching Crete for our possible future. We have lived on the Costa Blanca and Bri has worked around Europe as a builder for many years. We have noticed that construction methods are virtually identical to Spain and as such we intend to start building villas as our business. We are both in our 40's and our son (21) works for us as part of our construction company. We hope to make our first trip to Crete within the next 6 months to view land and get the building laws from the horses mouth, so to speak. At this time we live in Essex, England and are all suffering for the need to wander again. Such a big world and so few years to build on it lol. We look forward to forum interaction with you all.
