San Stefanos news and views / How long have you been a member?
« on: June 10, 2020, 02:36:38 AM »
Hi everyone. I'm bored so I just spent some time looking at past comments I posted on the various topics over the years and I wondered how many members are still around from when I joined. It was 28th June 2008.

I still see many posts from people who were around back then but some of the regular contributors 12 years ago seem to have been less prolific in their postings in recent times. Hopefully their still around but use twitface (or whatever its called) instead.

Hope you're all well and staying safe.

We've booked a package holiday with TUI for 6th Sept at the Rose Gardens however we don't fancy the coach ride from the airport because of the timing and previous experience. We intend to book a taxi. Obviously I'll tell the TUI reps we won't be needing the coach but can I anticipate problems with them as a result? It should be straight-forward but you never know.

Where to stay / Fantasea studio's
« on: February 26, 2019, 07:47:48 PM »
Hello all,

Looking at a week or so in San Stef this Sept. Lesley has kindly given me some contact details for Olympia which is much appreciated but I would also like some details on the Fantasea studios/apartments. Info on the forum is quite old so I'm looking for an update.

Are the studios in the hotel itself or with the apartments behind the church. If by the apartments do they have the same patio area with view over the old harbour and are they comfortable enough.

As usual any help greatly appreciated.

What a lovely day in San Stef..........not. They really seem to be having a lot of rain of late. Still its a lot better than 5' snowdrifts and minus windchill figures.

Doesn't the beach look wide, just like it used to. I wish it was like that in the summer. Still, the beach is the beach is the beach and long may it remain.

San Stefanos news and views / Gone and done it

In the words of Shania Twain I've gone and done it. I've booked and paid the deposit for next year's holiday at the Fedra Mare. I know it costs more but that's life. Things are what they are. I can't forego 2 weeks in the sun with great food and being amongst friends on holiday, marvellous.

Didn't make San Stef last year but will be back at the Fedra this July. Other than Beer O'clock what else is new.

Heard a lot about this place from Hippopots in terms of how busy it is was there during the summer but what's it like. What food do they do? How do you get to the place? Going back to San Steph next year after missing out this so we'll try it if it's any good.  :)

San Stefanos news and views / Car hire
« on: November 13, 2015, 02:51:23 PM »
Morning all. This may seem like a stupid question but what will I need to take to San Stef to hire a car and what's the best option insurance wise. I haven't driven abroad for 12 years or more since we had an unfortunate incident outside Alicante one year so I consider myself a green horn.

Any info as always gratefully received.

San Stefanos news and views / Greece says no.........what next
« on: July 06, 2015, 01:02:20 AM »
Greece has said no by a huge majority to a deal which the EU withdrew last week. What now? Where does that leave them? I'm not convinced that the EU will make many if any concessions as to do so could start a dominoe effect across countries like Portugal, Italy and especially Spain which has an election later this year. I fear for the immediate future of our Greek friends but let's hope they can get back on a more secure footing sooner rather than later.

San Stefanos news and views / Had to cancel....gutted
« on: April 22, 2015, 04:59:19 PM »
Hi all. Been meaning to write this update for a few months now but kept putting it off as its still very frustrating/disappointing.

Back in November last year we had to cancel our yearly 2 week stay at the Fedra due to a conflict of money interest. We had water coming into the garage so I replaced the roof which wasn't cheap but it was manageable. This unfortunately hasn't solved the problem which meant house roof repairs. As a public servant with a 2 year pay-freeze plus 3 years below inflation pay rises in the last 5 years things are tight and one thing had to go........the holiday or the roof. So a no brainer in the end.

For my sanity I should stop looking at this forum but the draws too strong. Continuing to do so is a form of mental self-harm.

Anyway hope to get back there next year especially as we've just received a 0.5% pay rise.   :-\
