Castro Restaurant

Kandanos Property Guide - Castro Restaurant

In case you are looking for a really pristine and charming restaurant in Palaiochora, a nice suggestion would be to visit the Castro Restaurant & Cafe Bar.

The restaurant has a modern/traditional Greek design and a very stylish exterior space with a wonderful view over the east side of Palaiochora and the Libyan Sea.

The food here is excellent – a welcome blend of traditional Cretan dishes with creative and modern Mediterranean influences- cooked by a properly trained, professional chef who takes great pride in his work. For those who love alternative choices and want to taste the Cretan creativity a must dish to try is the Seafood Mille Feuilles starter which would have been remarkable in ANY serious restaurant anywhere in the world.

It is absolutely true, that people travel from all over Greece to visit this particular pastry shop. Owner/baker, John Kontekakis, was featured on several national travel cooking shows and culinary exhibitions. Their Galaktoboureko (vanilla custard in fillo with a honey based syrup) is really legendary and one of the best you’ll have on the island of Crete, if not all of Greece.

For more information please read our Buying a Property in Chania Guide.

Kandanos Property Guide – Helping you Find the Perfect Home

Generally speaking, some real estate agents might not feel happy to discuss the facts. However, receiving a reliable answer will provide you an insight into how really excited they are to sell the property. Let’s say, a property owner moving to another area of the country for work. In this case, the owner will be more likely to sell the property faster than someone who is just moving to another property of different size. In this case, you could even negotiate the selling price due to the urgency of the circumstances.

However, if you are still wondering “What are the costs involved in buying?” or “Apart from the property, what other costs should you budget for?” please read our buying a property in Chania Guide.

This could be the most significant question you ask a real estate agent. The duration of the property in the market provides a magnificent insight concerning the desirability and attractiveness of the property. If the property has been on the market for a half of year or more, ask the agent about the initial selling price, location or possible structural and legalization problems.

However, if you are still wondering about the “Property Legalization Law” or the “Spatial Planning Permits & Environmental Permits in Chania” please read our buying a property in Chania Guide.

Issuing of energy performance certificate is a prerequisite for the property transfer or rental of buildings and has become mandatory since 9.1.2011. To prepare a Deed of Conveyance for any real property transaction Deed, the notaries public or solicitors are obliged by law to cite the EPC’s reference number in the real estate contract and submit an official copy of that document to the authorities. Buyers should be aware of the need for an up-to-date EPC.

However, if you are still wondering about what exactly the EPA involves you can read our detailed article on the Energy Performance Certificate. For more information on the “Property Legalization Law” or the “Spatial Planning Permits & Environmental Permits in Chania” please read our Buying a Property in Chania Guide.

If the property has been on the market for several months, you can propose a new price below the current price. However, this is not always an effective strategy because you never know how low a seller is willing to go. Since there are different motivations for selling the result of the negotiation as- always– is uncertain. Nevertheless, if the seller is willing to negotiate, you could luck out and achieve a magnificent deal.

For more tips about how to negotiate a property please have a look to our Buying a Property in Chania Guide. Moreover, you can always visit our Real Estate Chania website for all the latest Chania real estate trends, house prices and news.

If you find a property you really want to buy, then do not hesitate to ask your real estate agent whether the property seller is ready or not to reduce the selling price. A real estate professional will definitely provide you this critical information even before you make a deal.  However, the most important is your enthusiasm and high willing to acquire this property from the outset.
