Leaving it late!
« on: April 21, 2004, 08:48:04 PM »
Hi Guys,

Still haven't booked yet for September (No early visit as we have just got back from Italy seeing the in-laws)

Didn't book before because of probation period in new job but now thats over and I am settled in I am itching to get it sorted.

I see nothing on First Choice, presumabley the flight is fully booked.

Looking to come out on the 6th of September for 2 weeks (can make the meal that way      )

Anyone got any ideas?

Ali expect an e-mail soon begging for accomodation help  

Good to be back.

Paulie & Marge

Hope you can make those dates Paul - we'll be there for 2 weeks from Aug 31st.
I heard there's not a lot of accommodation left for this year - but I'm sure you'll manage something! Last time we checked, there was space in Dora, so it might be worth checking the Olympic brochure (their online booking is OK too)
See you in Ostraco (I haven't danced with an Italian  lady for far too long...)

I would check that again as you would come out on the 7th not the 6th. If it's still a no go then an alternative would be to book the flight only (I have checked and they are still available) and arrange accommodation through Anso travel. We always do that and find it works very well.

We are going on the 7th so maybe see you at Gatwick!

What am I talking about  

I meant Friday the 3rd although we could do a Tuesday departure I suppose (just means taking that extra day off work!).

Off to check with Olympic...

I'm sure we'll make it somehow even if we have to swim !

No luck with Olympic packages although there does appear to be space on the flight at 167 each. Nightmare times though, even worse than the First Choice charters.

What sort of price would we be looking at for 2 weeks studio accomodation?

Might just book 'em anyway. Can always kip on the beach!

Cheers

Paulie

Hi Ploppy

Have a look at http://www.interkriti.net/hotel/plakias/anna-apts/

These are very spacious and well maintained studios in a quiet location - not far from the Youth Hostel.  If you email Anna direct at the address given on the web page you can probably do a better deal than the prices quoted for a 14 day stay.   You won't get Room 4 though because we have already booked it!

Regards,

Allan

Here's a link to Morpheas - around 40 Euro/night/room
http://morpheas-apartments-plakias-crete-greece.com/#

Olive House, on the outskirts is cheaper at 32 euro/night - link http://olivehouse.kreta-sun.com/contact-en.html
Lots of other possibilities you can find with a goovle search, good luck.

Thanks for the accomodation info, thats what we need cos I just booked the flights    Hurrah!

Quite interested in the Anna Appartments, what sort of walk is it to the beach from there?

Any more appartment advice?

Thanks again

Paulie

Re the distance from Annas to the beach , it depends which end of the beach you use!  The studios are about 150 yards from Medousa (where we had our inaugral meeting last September).  From there you walk around the back of Alianthos and cross the road to Meltemi.  Anna's is nearer to the 'nice' end of the beach than say Costas or Dora.

Regards,

Allan

Ploppy, may be able to get you an apartment where we will hopefully be living soon, it is at the end of the beach behind Parigremnos (can't spell tonight) is that too far out?  Let me know the dates and I will speak to the guy who rents the apartment if you are interested.

Hi All,

We have always stayed at Oasis, in the lovely appartment there.  Just a little out of town, but it keeps us fit walking up and down the hill.  We dont feel too bad, as we know that whatever we eat will be burned off walking back.

We booked our flights through Airborne travel, can you believe that we paid 139 each, that included accomodation for 14 nights (bargin). We are not staying at the accomodation in Malia, we are using it as a flight only, and returning to lovely Plakias, with some friends, who are bored with us going on about how we love the place. They decided that they wanted to see what we are always raving on about. Anyway only got to wait until the 25 May ...... . May be we will bump into some of you that are going to be out there at the same time.

Bye for now, hope you all have lovely holidays this year.      

Regards Sarah

Blimey Sarah thats a good price, less than we are paying for flight only. Looking at your previous posts you are a master bargain hunter, give me some tips cos I want a new digital camera
