Where to eat...or not! / Fresh Kalamari
« on: November 03, 2018, 10:46:20 AM »
I had fresh Kalamari this year for the first time ever and I could not believe how good it was compared to the standard frozen stuff you get in most tavernas. Does anyone know which tavernas serve fresh Kalamari in Plakias.


PlakChat / Exchange rate
« on: August 08, 2017, 09:22:22 AM »
As the exchange rate is so poor at the moment (1.08) at the post office, I am wondering if I might get a better rate in plakias. Would anyone be able to tell me what is at the moment please? Also can you still exchange at the Alianthos and car rental place?

Many thanks

Holiday Companies / Extra checks at passprt control

I have been reading in the press about the delays at European airports as a result of extra checks at passport control. Has anyone experienced any delays upon arrival/departure?


Where to go / The Pelion - katigiorgis
« on: July 22, 2012, 10:23:20 AM »
As much as we love Plakias, the situation at the far end has made us look at somewhere else this year. We got fed up with having to rush down to the beach in the morning just to get a bed. We always stayed at the Peligrimnos and we used to sit on the balcony and watch people drive up between 6.30 - 7.30am, go and put their towels on the bed, and drive off again. This is in September when it gets really busy. It isn't a holiday if every morning you have to rush down to the beach just to get a bed. So it's katigiorgis, in The Pelion for us this year. 2 small tavernas and a little mini market. Lovely apartment with magnificent views towards Skiathos.  Very quiet but no rushing around in the morning!

Plakias / No Fuel on Crete
« on: July 29, 2010, 09:02:29 AM »
Just had a call from my husband who was listening to the Today programme. There was a report on the Lorry Drivers strike in Greece and apparently, Crete has been badly hit with no fuel getting through to petrol stations. Drivers are abandoning their cars at the side of the road. This will obviously affect transfers from the airport.

Has anyone any further information?

Plakias / Tribute to Steve Rabbetts
« on: December 13, 2009, 05:39:22 PM »

It makes me very sad to report that earlier today, Steve Rabbetts lost his very couragous battle with cancer. Steve loved plakias and spent many happy years there with his wife Lin and he was known by many on this forum. He was a very upright, straghtforward guy who will terribly missed by those who knew him. He was also a dear friend who we spent many late and very happy nights outside ostracos with. Somehow it just won't be the same without him. Steve was someone special.

PlakChat / Airport Taxi Transfers
« on: August 03, 2005, 06:40:10 PM »
Is there anyone who has used taxi transfers to and from the airport recently? I was wondering how much it is at the moment and if they are still charging for luggage by the kilo.

I do have the option of the guys from paligremnos picking us up which would be cheaper but not sure what their mode of transport is. Does anyone know?
