March in Crete
Kalo Mina! Welcome March. Welcome Spring!
The weather has been wonderful here in Crete. Winter was soft and warm for us living on this beautiful island. Living in Greece and specially on Crete at this difficult times of corona is the best of options. Lockdown strict restrictions have been imposed in all the country. Vaccination against Covid-19 is in full progress in Greece. Until now 885.000 people have been vaccinated and its estimated 30.000-35.000 are getting vaccinated per day. Through this strange frightening period we are lucky to have the sun on our hair, the Cretan sea on our feat and of course the beautiful Cretan country side with its proud mountains adorned with olives tree, tea and herbs.
Did you know that locals on the first of March give as a gift to friends, loved ones and mostly to children a little bracelet made of red and white woven threads. This symbolizes good health and it protects children's faces from sunburns as the sun is getting stronger. This special bracelet is meant to be worn until the end of the Month and it's called Marti. You can find them in all accessory shops.
A variety of properties from abandoned old stone houses waiting for someone to realize their beauty and bring them back to their forgotten glory, apartments with two bedrooms ready for you to come and live under the Cretan sun, secluded Villas with stunning views with modern architech design waiting for high standards potential buyers and of course lovely plots waiting for you to build your ideal house.
Beautiful Crete is a lovely home and locals will welcome you and make you feel as a member of their family.
