        Hello there. I’m new here and am posting as I’m a Brit (Greek dual nationality but lived in London most of my life) and am coming on February 20th for 3 days to see some land as I’m looking to buy to build a house on.

        I’m staying in Chania and will be travelling to Livadia area and surrounding, where I’m interested so far.

        I’ll be visiting a few times and wondered if there are any decent bars in Chania to visit and say hello to any fellow Brits, to get an idea of life on Crete and hear of any stories, recommendations, warnings, etc, that I should hear – if anyone is around during the 3 days i’m there, would be good to hear from you.

        Thanks, Nik

                    Go to Almyrida to meet Brits. Try "Captain Jack’s" bar first.
                    You’ll find me most Sundays at "Francoise" from 10 am. Not that I’m a man of habit. Sometimes I go to Georgioupoli instead. If you go there, try "The Cotton Club".

                            I forgot to mention for Georgioupoli, as well as "The Cotton Club" (by the sea), just off the square there’s "Stelios’ Bar" and "Sinatras". Both are frequented by Brits. We prefer Stelios and Giorgia’s bar because they let us practice our Greek. :)

                                Thanks again – I’ll have a look when I visit, I’m sure that as the weather gets better they all become good places to go to… :D
