We are currently driving down the Dalmation Coast and will be reaching Crete mid (ish) October, and are looking for somewhere to live over Winter. Ideally 2 bedrooms near the sea, any help much appreciated.
Please see previous posting below for a bit of info on ourselves-
After spending last September visiting several Greek islands we are taking the plunge and driving our camper through Europe, then hope to spend the winter somewhere quiet in Greece.
We would ideally love to settle during our travels. We are looking either to rent or house-sit, and would be happy to do gardening, painting and tiling maintenance and look after any pets if needed.
I am a sound engineer and I also teach young people with learning and behavioural difficulties. I also am in partnership in a small recording studio where I record bands and make my own music most weekends. I am happy to undertake most DIY. Sam works as a primary teacher 2 to 3 days a week and also takes on self employed tiling work. Sam has spent a lot of time ‘doing up’ houses and is proficient at painting and decorating, tiling, and general household DIY.
As part of our work with young people Sam and I both have up to date CRB (criminal records bureau) certificates and can provide references from Headteachers and senior academics.
If you’ve made it to the end thanks very much for your time, and any advice or help would be gratefully appreciated!
I suspect by the time you get this, you will be nearing the end of your trip – so I hope you’ve had a wonderful time.
Having read your post from the end of last year, I thought I’d just drop you a line, just in case you find yourself looking to explore Crete once again over the winter months.
We have a couple of villas (both with 2 double rooms) overlooking Tholos Bay in Kavousi (near Mochlos, Pahi Ammos, Istron.. that sort of area). We rent them out during the summer season, but they ar wonderful in the winter months as well (there are wood burning stoves and a hot tub).
So please do feel free to get in touch if this may ever be of interest. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org We have a website http://www.tholosluxuryvillas.com which has some pictures and info. If your stay was a bit longer, you can ignorethe advettised prices as I’m sure we could agree a special rate for you.
