BritsinCrete, the Blog

The Living in Crete | Brits in Crete Blog is an eclectic mix of spouting off by the webmaster of Brits in Crete. None the less, there are useful tidbits of information to be gleaned on life and living in Crete, Greece and a glimpse into a Mediterranean lifestyle.

So far, Greece has not reached the stage of intensive development of expatriate communities such as in Spain. As a result, as foreigners we are able to blend in with our Greek hosts. Sissi has the charm still of the traditions of many centuries, yet embraces side by side today's modern ideas, concepts and sophistication. Sissi and Mirabello is welcoming to all, whether on short or long stays, no matter the age group. Xerete! (welcome).
