Hello, we are a retired English couple who are in the process of selling our home here so we now need to find a suitable long-term home.
The area we are looking at, at the moment is:- from Karteros to Kato Gouves, Heraklion.
We would like a house, minimum 100m2, min 2 bed, unfurnished with secured garden or very large patio. (We have a small dog). Solar panels, aircon, fitted kitchen, car parking and close to main bus route to Heraklion. Walking distance to shops/tavernas/bank facilities/health centre – we need somewhere that is quite level for walking. Many thanks.
Most rentals are done via word of mouth amongst the locals so it’s a good idea to ask in all the local shops and cafes.
Make sure they understand your complete requirements (print a list – preferably in Greek – with your mobile number included) otherwise you’ll waste your time and theirs as they offer you totally unsuitable places.
