|WORRIED ABOUT THE EURO ? RECENT SCARE STORIES|
Rest assured, Mastihari is just as it always is, as the Deputy Mayor said on BBC News, nothing has changed, everything is normal and we look forward to welcoming you.
Please ignore all the scare stories in UK media, we have highlighted this weeks for you:
YOU COULD RUN OUT OF MONEY AND BE STRANDED Flase- You can withdraw as much money as you wish from ATM machines. If any problems, we have an access to cash in the village programme, which you can use.
WE WILL RUN OUT OF FOOD Rubbish - The Island is largely self sufficient regarding growing food, we have over three months of supplies of the food we need to import.
WE WILL RUN OUT OF FUEL False- We have three months supplies on the Island and the oil terminal is operating normally.
NO ELECTRICITY Rubbish- see above.
ANY MONEY YOU HAVE PAID, ARE ABOUT TO OR ARE THINKING OF PAYING WILL BE LOST Again, completely untrue. All money is currently held in a UK bank and will only be transferred once the village considers things to be normal again.
If you have the slightest worry, please contact us for the facts. DO NOT listen to UK Media scare stories. MASTIHARI WELCOMES YOU AND INDEED NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT MORE THAN EVER !!!!
We have just received the following letter from someone who has just returned from their stay with us. We have their permission to reproduce it as they feel people are being misled by the media. Please read it and judge for yourself:
Just to say thanks for arranging our 5 day break last week.
The Angela Thalia apartments were as lovely as ever. It is so peaceful there but interesting as its opposite the harbour, so our only exercise was raising the ouzo glass, whilst watching disembarkation - which is always fun.
We had some lovely food - most memorable was the 'special' pork on a spit at Harama and our free breakfast (I had egg and bacon which was a first for me in Greece) .
We also had moussaka which isn't something I'd usually choose, but my friend wanted it so I said I would too. This was at Kali Kardia, where Nikos is on a mission to persuade people to try tsipero as it doesn't give you a headache (apparently).
We also tried a cocktail at Number 1 Bar - both going for a Shirley Valentine.
I don't know how Mastihari has hung on to its village feel but it has and it's beautiful still.
In case you are asked, we went to Kos on the bus last Friday and I can honestly say that I saw two possible refugees ( they were darker skinned and sitting on a bench) there was no sign of the 'hell hole' described in the Daily Mail and Daily Express. Kos town was busy and we had a lovely meal at lunchtime at The Fish House Taverna by the harbour. At no time did we feel intimidated, threatened or uncomfortable. I feel it is important to tell you this, as I heard that the news reports had people changing their mind about coming - even to Mastihari, which is miles from Kos town. These newspapers are just scaremongering.

|THE CONCEPT OF OUR SERVICE |
I first visited Mastihari nineteen years ago to 'house sit' for a friend who was away in the U.S.A.. I instantly fell in love with the village and its attendent qualities which epitomise the Greek way of life. Sadly, these very qualities which first attracted me to the Island are now vanishing under the onslaught of mass tourism. To preserve the delights of Mastihari, a radical approach was required, hence the concept of our service was born. This is a genuine partnership with the local community, we take great pride in ensuring the money you spend with us, goes into the local economy for the benefit of the whole community. By playing our part in the social and economic fabric of the village, Mastihari will remain unspoilt. For your part, you will experience the open arms and hearts of the villagers who are delighted that you will embrace and respect their customs, traditions and way of life. In return, they offer you the chance to share for the time you are with them, the 'magic' which is Mastihari.
