replied to the thread Thinking of retiring to Greece
on the Greece forum:
My wife and I are looking into making a move to a country with a nice climate; looking into Greece now.
Can anybody tell me where the weather will not be too hot in summer (the winter will not be a big problem)
My wife is english...I'm dutch.
She would appreciate being able to mingle with fellow english people.
We are mainly looking into Corfu where we will be renting.
All comments,positive or negative will be appreciated.
Getting back to england every 3 - 4 months to see her kids and grandkids shouldn't be a problem either I expect.
We want to be near the sea for maximum of light.
I think you will be in Greece by now...
I found your comment:
"We want to be near the sea for maximum of light. Thanks"
a rather curious one. I can understand Northern Europeans wanting more sunlight but how amazing to think traditional Greek homes have small windows to keep out the summer heat and light because it is so bright. In fact there are so many eye problems caused by the excessive glare. That is the reason I reacted to your comment.
I am familiar with Eastern Crete where the days are sunny and long for most of the year, Corfu is rather less so. I hope you will have a chance to see Crete for this reason.
All the best
Firstly i would like to say Hello to all ex-pats here in Greece,my first time on any ex-pat site and i am looking for any information about buying,trading and selling items with other ex-pats also hopefully for myself and my Greek wife to meet up with other ex-pats for friendships too
Buy and selling what, I venture to ask?
It may be surprising to learn that any local Greek telephone directory has many foreigners listed for their home phones, no matter where you are in Greece.

I moved to Athens actually in october last year, and although some points like the way the driving is here can be a cultural shock but no worse than when i used to drive my self through france,italy and portugal as a long distance lorry driver,but i am pleased to say as for alot of other things, i have an amazing greek wife and son, and everyone that i have met and been introduced too,have actually aprt from a very few select ons been very friendly ,helpful,and kind,its hard to settle anywhere if you dont know the language but i am always trying and even now only just still learning the basics,but in general i love the country and the people and hoping to meet alot of others including ex=pats like myself
