With regards to eating, reaching one of over 50 supermarkets by walking is possible for some, but not all, home buyers in Greece. A small number of restaurants and cafes are available as well.
Greece is very car friendly. It is very convenient to find a place to park. However, getting around by transit can be very difficult in Greece due to the service's low frequency. Thankfully, the town is served by approximately 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not particularly far from most residences. Greece is not very conducive to traveling on foot as very few daily needs can be carried out by walking.
