        Just joined ‘Brits in Crete’ and wanted to say “hello” and hopefully get some tips and advice from you expats. After many years of visiting Greece, I am finally in the position to make the move to Crete early in 2019. We hope to buy a property which needs a degree of renovation and wondered if anyone could advise me whether it is more cost effective to buy a kitchen in Crete or to buy one in the UK and have it shipped to Crete? Also, can anyone give me an idea of how much it costs to have a solar water heater supplied and fitted. Many thanks

            Solar water heating systems start at about 600 Euros, I believe. Labour is cheap.
            Shipping kitchen units here (via Nomad Crete Express?) can cost hundreds. It might be cost effective if you ship a really, really expensive kitchen kit. I assume you’ll install it yourself.

            The water here is extremely “hard” (limestone) so taps & shower heads get fouled up. Make sure that you can get spare taps etc.
