#11923 Visits For 2007

Posted by yvonnetp on 09 September 2007 - 09:21 AM in Meet in Crete

Hi All,
Kev and I will be back on Tuesday - this time is is to start the final stage of building on the house in Latsida. Hopefully when we return next spring it will be completed and ready to move into.
We are staying with friends again in Koutouloufari. I am so excited, I'm like a 6 year old and all her Christmas's have come at once.

Great news, We've just had a phone call to say our Greek Mortgage has been approved.

Dreans do come true :)

We bought an old stone house for 28k and are slowly renevating it. We have now applied for a Greek mortgage with Euro bank, based on our earnings in the UK, as we cannot afford to move out and rent while we are doing the house up slowly, with the costs involved in that.

The interest rates in Greece are much cheaper that in the UK and the interest we are paying on the Mortgage we will probably save on the accomodation costs for our current 2 trips a year. We would prefer to move out immediately, however we want it to be right when we do get there.

Remember - patience is a virtue, and it gives you time to make all your dreams come true. :)

Kevin and I will be back in Koutouloufari tomorrow. :P :D

B) Hopefully we will be instructing out builder to complete the work on the house in Latsida so we can spend our holidays there next year and make plans to move out permanantly shortly after.

Dreams do come true :rolleyes:

#11195 Koutouloufari - Anyone Been To Sunrise Apartments ?

Posted by yvonnetp on 28 May 2007 - 06:23 PM in Explore Crete

We have been going to Koutouloufari for 5 years and we love it. We are going again on 5th June and then again in September. It is reasonably quiet however loads of Tavernas and a couple of bars. If you want to be in the middle of the night life get a cab to take you into Hersonisos just down the hill.

You can have the best of both worlds in this exceptionally pretty and very friendly village.

Hope you enjoy

Yvonne :rolleyes:
