I have just joined today, and don’t have as much info probably as the longer members,but, my Partner and I rented a 3 bed villa in Kalyves in October last year with the intention of staying until end of March 21, then lockdown happened after 1 week!!!
We came home to UK, 6 weeks later, cos of Covid, but, we found that depending where you shop,the Food prices are maybe slightly less than UK,But others are higher, ie,UK Dairy products! We paid €600 winter month rent,the water cost is ok, but electric is very expensive, again it was Winter! If it’s just for you and dog, get 2 bed place, flat or small house,I can recommend Claudia at Crete-island estates, for rental or Maria at Minoan Properties, or Marlize at Alpha-Omega Estates, all in Kalyves, I hope this helps a little!! By the way we are moving to Crete in 3 weeks time to live, hopefully for quite some time!! Good Luck!! Toni
