A place in the sun: where to buy real estate in Greece

Houses and apartments in Greece are bought primarily by those who had an opportunity to enjoy the country’s kindly Mediterranean climate, the hospitality of the locals and moderate prices at least once. Greece abounds in beautiful picturesque sites and it is extremely difficult for foreigners to decide where to buy a new house under the Hellas sun. That’s why we decided you would find useful our list of top destinations for buying real estate. 


Crete real estate

Crete is especially favored by customers from Great Britain. It is situated in the southern part of the country and is considered to be its biggest island. Crete offers good sea and air traffic, organic food and moderate prices. Most customers give the nod to the western coast, Chania and Rethymno, over Heraklion. Probably the western coast is more popular because Chania and Rethymno have better beaches and lots of beautiful and authentic villages in the neighbourhood.

By the way, you can take a closer look at these villages if you are more attracted by harmonious and relaxing atmosphere than the noise of big tourist cities. The main advantage of Rethymno is the availability of two international airports in Chanio and Heraklion. It takes no more than an hour to reach either of them. Crete is so attractive for tourists and real estate customers because the tourist season is very lengthy – officially it ends in October, but you can swim till November. 



Corfu real estate

Corfu Island is one of the most favourite destinations for tourists and real estate customers. Crowds of tourists visit this island all year round, and those who have apartments have an opportunity to earn some money on renting.

If you would like to save your money, but at the same time you don’t want to live somewhere afar you should take a closer look at the profitable offerings in the Guvia district, which is situated very close to the capital of Corfu. It takes only 10 minutes to get there by car. You can find rather cheap apartments in the tourism zone, but small village houses requiring some reparation would cost you even less. 


Phodes real estate

Most real estate customers on Rhodes prefer the northern part of the island, which is considered to be less developed from the point of view of tourism industry. You can find some village houses situated by the seaside at the western coast for 85,000 Euro.

An apartment in Lindos would cost you more money, seeing as the acknowledged Rhodes gem is extremely popular among tourists. Gennadi, a small village with spacious beach, numerous taverns and all the needed infrastructure, is acquiring popularity and offering advantageous prices for real estate. 


Chalkidiki peninsula

Chalkidiki peninsula is considered to be extremely popular among the Russian tourists. It is situated close to Thessaloniki, which means that you can enjoy both staying at the seaside and visiting a big city. Chalkidiki is the best option for buying real estate for those who are looking for the best place for family vacations on beautiful sand beaches surrounded by pine tree forest. Due to its popularity among the Russians, you can rent your apartment during the summer months.

Chalkidiki is a suitable place for older people, who prefer to buy small houses with land parcels. Those who are fond of partying won’t have any time to get bored, seeing as some areas of the village are known for having an active night life.
