Living on Crete

If you need to know anything about Crete, read on ...

If you have read about our experiences with selling our house in Crete, you would be excused for thinking we would be making our way back the UK as quickly as possible.
We did try to buy a property in the UK, which we were hoping to rent out, to provide the funds for staying in Crete by renting a villa in the Apokoronas. This proved to be impossible as the fees for the rental property in the UK were excessive and we wouldn't pay them.
That left us looking for property in Crete, either to rent or tentatively to purchase. We rented for a year in Douliana but were lucky to find a house to purchase in Kambia in the early part of 2020.

Unfortunately this was at the same time as the pandemic of Covid-19 really started to grip the world.
