Help Me Impress My Greek Father-in-law

11 February 2008 - 11:19 PM

My father-in-law's family is from Hania and, perhaps needless to say, he is incredibly proud of his Cretan heritage. We are planning a family vacation to Crete this summer. It has been more than 20 years since my father-in-law last visited Greece. I know he is truly looking forward to spending time with us (especially his grandchildren!) in his ancestral home.

I volunteered to find our housing in Crete, hoping to impress my father-in-law. One idea I have is to swap our 4 bedroom house in New York (45 minutes from Manhattan) for a home in Crete. Do you have any advice or leads for doing so? I have tried the usual Homeexchange.com type web sites, but they do not have many home swaps listed in Crete.

Cheers and thank you in advance for your help.

PS - Our ideal swap dates would be June 7-21.
