I can fully understand that Lesley.  We would probably enjoy the quietness ourselves, as long as we could still get a good meal and somewhere to have a drink at night. :)

Hi karen. I'm sorry to see that your flight has been changed to the mo day. It won't be the same when we arrive on the Friday. Ah well, at least we will see you and John. It's a long way off yet. But we can't wait.

Hi Paul, yes the day is not too bad but the night flights aren't so good.  So we shall be about on the Tuesday, but not too early, so no noise from your apartment please!!  Looking forward to seeing you and Ruth!

Couldn't agree more Jim, they work so hard during the season and before and after.

We have been coming twice year since 1997 and as we now live in Wales flights from Cardiff are limited and never cheap.
We do occasionally come from Bristol but it is much further for us and adds almost £200 to the cost of the holiday.
Even Cardiff is 60 miles.

Next year there are to be Monday flights for a few weeks as well as Friday from Cardiff which is wonderful because the Friday flights are swamped by the Cruisers so you really need to book early.

I didn't twig about the Cruisers, on a Friday, but that is probably why the airport is so busy.  Hopefully our Monday night flight may mean the airport is not so busy. :)

Couldn't agree more Karen, we're finding July and August too hot now as well. Previously been in May and June and though the evenings were a bit chilly in May you still only need a light jumper or cardy we're not talking a coat here. I must admit I enjoyed both trips more than peak times when it can be high 20's during the night and thats far too hot. I need my sleep.

The first time we went, we went in May, daytime was just right, but yes the evenings could be chilly.  For the last couple of years there have been a couple of days where we haven't moved far from the apartment, because of the heat.

Changing times is one thing changing days is another. What if your accomodation can't meet the change and do you get compensation??

Does anyone know why this is happening?

Well we are with TUI, so we're ok, not sure about indy booking...what's happening?!

We have booked again after what will have an 8 year gap. Staying at Nondas in July for 10 days. Must admit we’re really looking forward to seeing what’s changed in the village and, of course, slipping back into that relaxing rhythm.

First place looked at before we booked was this forum to see what was happening. It’s still good.

Great news!  There aren't really too many changes, loftyscot, the only thing that never changes is the warm welcome from the lovely local folk! :)

I've always been more of an observer rather than a contributor.

However, it was this site that convinced me that I had made the right choice when I booked San Stefanos on a whim 4 years ago. The restaurant and general reviews painted a great picture. So,I'm making an early resolution to become more active.

I'm not a great Facebook lover, but the advantage it has is the ability to post photos and videos (although the meal and beer pics bore me)

I love Karen's idea of a daily holiday blog and I'll do mine when we return next August.

Welcome on board!  Looking forward to all the holiday reviews next year! :)

It doesn't take much to breathe life into this forum so well done folks. It'll be nice to have a look each day expecting to see something new rather than no activity

Quite right, help us get through the winter months! 8)

We have already booked for May next year we booked it whilst in San Steph in May.
I did miss me second visit this year and hope to get two in in 2019 although one of my granddaughters will be 18 at the end of September just when we like to go.
In our 70s we find the height of summer too much for us.

I am pleased that there is still some activity on here I do like to keep the flame alive all year.

Yes we are finding July rather hot now, so may have to look at changing that. Do you think May or September would be the best time to go, in your opinion? :)

Hello Lesley. We go with Tui and our Friday flights are now Monday flights and both night flights, not happy with those times, means we miss our first night there.

Yes Jackie has a big op coming up early January and looking forward to sitting in the Athens Bar in June is certainly one of the things keeping her spirits up!

Aah, good luck with that Jackie, the thought of your holiday will keep you going. Hope you have a quick recovery :)
