This made me very sad! Consuelo and I meet them during our 2006's holidays in Plakias but we felt immediatly like old friends with Freddie and his wonderful wife Frieda.

Maybe @harribobs knows who did the picture? ;-)

All the best to her and to his family,
Alex & Consuelo

Hi Alex,

Good to hear from you.

Does -5 mean you will be in Plakias in 5 days time?

If so then we will see you there, we go tomorrow.

Will look out for you.


Paul & Margherita

Hi Paul!!!
nice to hear you!
so sorry but this time our plan does not include Plakias...for the moment!  
We decided to go to Kalives for 3 days, then go down to Paleochora for about 1 week, then... we don't know.
So it is possible also to come back to Plakias, maybe for a day trip.
If it will happen, I hope to find you!
Anyway, have a very good trip Paul, and say hallo also to Margherita (I mean not the pizza, but your italian wife   )
I'm joking...!  
Have a nice time in Plakias, I still miss friends like you.

@Chris: all right... was my fault with email... (see the new one)

Hallo everybody!
sorry if I didn't post anymore here... but really got no time  
Well, I want just to say 'yassou' to all the friends we meet in Plakias in 2006, and just say that for me is -5    

@Harribobs, please check your mail, there's a big question for you  
Anyway, if you can't but see this message... remember the Water's Edge (I hope you know what I mean )

For all of you:
Thank you very much... I LOVE U PEOPLE! (VI AMO!)
You are great!  

Er... just a little thing: my girlfriend's name is "Consuelo", and not Consuela!  
It is not a common name, ending with "o", but it's true! and I'm sure she is female!  
(normally names ending with "o" are male ones...)
Anyway, she was quite good the last two days, but it's a pity that she has bad memories about that Saturday evening in Rethymno, because I wanted to have a great evening and I enjoyed very much the food at the Castello taverna. She still cannot look at the picture of the food that I made...  
But now she has recovered, she is 95% ok (that night was 2%)  

For John:
too big words for me, I'm so shamed...  
Thanks, I was pleased to speak with you and Gillian, very nice people!
And you were always smiling to everyone, that's a sublime soul!  

For Chris & Mandy:
thanks for the moments you gave me...
Remembering the days gone, it was like I knew you as friends since many years!
You made me feel happy when I was "alone"! Thanks from the heart, you're wonderful!  
Hey Mandy, I've seen that sign at Paleachora beach... ("No nudism here"), that's great!  

So Chris, I see you have some pics of me, and I have some of you.. look at this one...:
---> next days I will send you a PM, so we can send them each other, if you like it!
I think it would be nice!  

And for Paul, that, as John said, became "older" when we were there, I want say something:
first of all: thank you for your party, and many thanks also to Margherita for speaking some Italian with Consuelo  
Then, I want to say that I was joking when I said you are old!!!  
(don't need to say, but in any case, more words are better than less!)
And also for you, look at this nice pics...  
Happy Birthdaaay Paolinoooo  

bye all,

Hallo people!
It's so SAD to write again here AFTER being in Plakias!!!  
However, life goes on, and with so many things to do! That's why I find very little time to post...
But, I have to say that in Plakias I have met very wonderful people, especially those members of the forum, and others delicious people that are not members, but great ones, and also some nice locals (my future neighbours   ).
Well, I hope to find the time to do a report of my holiday, would be interesting to discuss some place...
For this time, it is enough (work is calling me!)... but before going, great great great greetings to Ploppy and Margherita (an OLD man with a very nice girl... he he!), to Chris and Mandy (ho ho, Babis was still offering raki and it was SO good   ), to Freida and Freddy (no words can explain what I feel about you... but if I have to say one, will say this: "the world should learn from you!"   ) and to John, Dotty, Rowena & Carl, and all the other people I met (sorry, cannot remember all the names!).

Sorry, sunset is coming...

think that Matala is about 10 minutes from that place...

maybe 10 -15 mins in a car, nice place, big long beach running down to Kommos beach

the beach behind mandy is kommos but you can see kalamaki a bit further up the coast

Want to thank all of you, even those who haven't directly answered to my topics, for the tips you gave me.
I'll be very glad to meet some of you in Plakias, and the others here in forum again.

Accommodation looks really nice Alex.....but did you not want to stay in Matala itslelf?
No, not strectly. We are free to go around and think that Matala is about 10 minutes from that place...
Otherwise, after the first 2 nights, we'll move to Matala.
And then, the second week.... you know

Have you had any luck with boiknig accommodation yet Alex? or are you leaving it til you get there?

For the moment I have still to decide...
I think I will book a room for the first 2 nights from Italy, then when I will be there I'll decide to keep it or to change if I don't like it...
Also I can stay in the nearess of Matala, as I've seen this very good positioned studios:
they also seems pretty
Thank you again dear for the precious advices you gave me for Plakias accomodation!
For those ones I'll choose when I'll be in Plakias, so I can also see the rooms

Quote from: Katerina
When you get to Matala make sure to go to the taverna perched on the top of the rocks to the east of the bay. It is run by wonderful people, they always seem to have something 'etoimo' that the whole family eats and is absolutely delicious. And as if that weren't enough they have a terrace overlooking the sea that gives you the most fantastic view of the sunset
You lucky, lucky thing

you mean this one:

By the way, thank you very much for the tip! I appreciate this kind of advice  
But what is 'etoimo'?

Quote from: beachcombers
Search for this spot and you are very near to the best place.

is it the Skala Taverna?

Did you know we are allowed to grow 5 canabis plants in our homes.

I think 5 plants are a bit too much for personal use...  
Better change them with 5 bottles of Cretain Raki... that's not too much!
