No one has signed contracts yet by the looks of things so obviously nothing will appear on a web site to book
A lot of apartment owners have decided that the Tour OP's are just not paying enough to make a living (if they are meeting current obligations looking at other posts) so will be going independent next year so won't appear in any brochure
You will have to wait until later in the year to see what happens, but expect a further reduction in 'package holidays' to Kassiopi again next year and be prepared to go 'DIY'
But it WAS there the day before. Could have booked it then. According to Manos it is a glitch with their system - the price is coming up as £100 (YES PLEASE!!!). It wasn't saying that when I looked - £372 pp I think.

The thing is I spoke to a few owners two weeks ago and they told me nobody had been paid this year. Thats three months with no money. One owner, Theo who has his place on the beach is already on his own for next year.
It seems to be a recurring problem - I remember a couple of years ago the owner we stayed with hadn't been paid for the season either. No wonder they are disgruntled and going on their own. What with that and the TO's pulling out as well.

Many of the owners here have not been paid for previous years yet, never mind this one. The tour operators have been doing this for a number of years now. These owners have families to feed and businesses to run.
Things are bad enough with low numbers of tourists this year. Some places have not even had the cash to open up this year and some will close permanantly at the end of this season as they have made so little money.
