Hello all 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. Thanks

Jordan6223 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 (forum)

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.

DaleandEfie commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Athens, Greece
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Do more "market research" on your destination before arriving and check the findings with people you know who live there. If it appears too much, plan "coping mechanisms" before moving. (Continue)

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

Trying to establish where English expats live in Corfu or Greece near the sea. My wife is English, I am Dutch and we live in Belgium. I am still working and stop on 26-06-2015. We would like to explore Corfu and Greece to see if there is a suitable place to move to. What we would like in particular: English speaking people in the area (Dutch is ok as well but not a must), we would very much like to be near the sea (for maximal light) and must not be too far from airport so my wife can visit her children and grandchildren in England every 3 months or so. We both love the sea and even the hot water springs (went to Edipsos about 3 years back) Who can help?

Who can tell me which places to check out whilst in Corfu next year where to snorkle...thinking of coming to live there for a while but would like to know which places are "interesting". Oh, by the way, I am just learning to snorkle. Any info is most welcome. Also renting out long term in these areas.
