Hi just to let you know we are now getting excited   as it is nearing our fist visit (this Year) to Plakias. We also notice that on the events board we appear (I know we won't be) to be the first and last visitors of the year.

I didn't get my fix last year so I'm getting really excited and still have 20 weeks to go!

Do leave just a little bit of Plakias for us latecomers. We come late Sept / early Oct.

Hope everyone enjoys Plakias again this Summer.

Very proud to be classed as a regular by forum manager (Andy) - who surely deserves a medal, a subsidised visit to Plakias at least !! and many thanks. One day I might be classed as a regular in Plakias. This year will be our 7th visit and we still feel like (very welcome) newcomers and I suspect shall do so for the next many years to come.

Hi John wondered if you had booked yet, sorry we will miss you, it would have been nice to have a natter again, we will try to warm the beach for you and any followers. No tickets yet but still excited.

Yes Dotty - we booked shortly after Christmas, and got an excellent deal with First Choice - cheaper than 'go it alone', and far less hassle overall for us, as there will be 15 of us this time! (I think - I didn't do the bookings).

I'm sure we'll catch up some other time - have a good one!

Well - how about this for an early booking   . First Choice 2005 bookings available today (1st day I think).
I have just booked 2 weeks in good old Stella pension from 27 September 2005  .
First Choice really do have good prices for the all in deal.

You are keen! I expect we will book again with First Choice soon after we get back from Stella this Sept. I know one thing, we won't leave it as late to book as we did this year (Jan) - we got the last available room in Stella. At less than 600 for the two of us, you can't go wrong.

We're with First Choice this year - first time for about 5 years - but the prices were too good to miss.
We will certainly be checking out next years booking soon - probably have a chat about it when we are there in May, and do the bookings just after we get home.

Agree with you all on First Choice our two visits are with them, early and late visits we know, but for both (one at Costas Chrysoulla the second at Stella)  we only paid 749.

Sounds like a bargain Dotty.  We've booked with Olympic this year for 2 weeks in May at Costa Chrysoulla and are paying 630!  - the reason being Olympic were doing a flight returning to Bristol on the Friday evening instead of Sat. 5am, but now they have changed the flight to return on Saturday morning.  We'll have to look at First Choice next time

We had problems last year with Olympic changing our flights - 4 times in all! It meant that we ended up with 13 hours less time in Plakias     Here's hoping that First Choice are better.

Have to say that we've used Olympic for the past few years, and not really had trouble with them at all.
We're going First Choice this year due to prices and availability - interesting to see how they do, as a few years back they were not that impressive!
