I don't know if you have it, here's the timetable.


Unfortunately no dates are given.

I have been told that KTEL are very good at answering queries by e-mail so maybe you could try contacting them on

Sorry, I can't help with where to get off the bus - I'm at the other end of the island.

In Topic: Blood Tests In Crete.

There are plenty of private laboratories where you can just walk in and ask for blood tests. The prices seem reasonable for any tests we've had done. Results are usually pretty quick, as well.

If you say where you will be staying someone may be able to give you details for a laboratory in the area. You could then contact them about prices.

If you Google Snobby homes you will find several links to comments about them.

Remember the old adage:

'If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.'

If you do go ahead with buying a property from them or any other developer DO NOT use their lawyer. Find one of your own. Even if it costs you more it will be worth it in the long run if there are any problems.

" And if you walk some on the older areas you will see oranges left to rot on the ground as it is too expensive to harvest them, as those prices are also low."

Interestingly, it was reported recently in the UK press that orange juice will become a luxury item there because of the failure of the orange harvest in Florida and somewhere else which I can't remember. It's a pity the juice producers don't look further afield for their raw material.

With regard to foreign workers: we were told that here, in Apokoronas, that the it's the Moroccans who have undercut everyone with the price they are prepared to work for and that a lot of the Eastern Europeans have left.
