                            I would strongly recommend Birakis constuction. They have an office in Solomou st hania and in the summer in Almirida. They have alot more experience than the previosly mentioned builder.

                                Hi, a friend of mine who lives in Vamos has had 2 houses built in the last 7 years by Miridakis construction.
                                The first was a holiday home and when he moved to Crete permanently, he found it too small – so he had the second one built. I have been around it and the finish seems to be very good. You can read his comments at http://www.myridakis.gr/catalog.asp?lang=en&id=350

                                    I would concur with Peebee, I and several friends have had houses built by myridakis and have been more than satified with the result.

                                            Deciding to have a new property built is a major decission , make sure you do your homework thoroughly as you are no doubt aware the building industry in in Europe is going through a very difficult period , we visited many companies prior to deciding on using Alpha Omega ,a family company based in Kalives village.They built us a wonderful villa on the outskirts of Kalives village , approx 18 months ago , we found them very good through out all of the various stages , and they provided us with very detailed pictorial progress reports through out the whole build process , nothing was to much trouble for them , even after the build was completed , they assisted us purchasing a car, furniture , opening bank accounts etc.

                                                There is so much over-development now on Crete I wonder that the government is still giving out licenses.

                                                Running out of water to provide sufficient means for supply to all parts of the island.  Especially East Crete where some villages have to share one day on, one day off during the summer months when tourism is at it’s heights.

                                                Be careful that you don’t try to build in a highly built up area and check that there is sufficient water all year round especially if you have bought higher up as lower down towards the coastal areas get the first supply.

                                                Known holiday makers in August have no water at all for a week above Elounda but the fountains springing well and swimming pools swimming with water at the hotel resorts just half a mile down the hill.
