Greece is a sunny Mediterranean country rich in historical and cultural treasures and an irresistible destination for many tourists, travelers, and ex-pats. It is a country that many people dream of, the vibrant life of Athens, Thessaloniki, or the Greek islands. Maybe it's time to realize your dreams!
About 75% of Greeks own their homes altogether.
This is partly due to the long and robust family branches, so homes are

the market so that you can create your Greek paradise.

Alternatively, tourist resorts of Sidari or Kavos offer water sports, great bars and restaurants, and lively nightlife.
- If you have always dreamed of a retiring to a Greek island, Kefalonia is a great place to consider. Quieter than the likes of the Corfu, Kefalonia is home to many treasures. The charming fishing village of Assos has a collection of colorful harbor front houses and the ruins of a 16th-century Venetian castle to explore. The secret underground Lake Melisani will take your breath away, and you can spot giant turtles swimming in the capital's port, Argostoli. The turquoise waters of Kefalonia versus the greenery of the hills are truly unique.
- Kefalonia is home to Mount Ainos, the highest mountain
in the Ionian Islands if you enjoy hiking. There are plenty of hiking
trails through black pine and Greek fir and panoramic views of
surrounding island at the summit. You might even see some semi wild
ponies on the way up.

known as Zante, is one of the Ionian Islands. The island includes
hilltop villages, traditional monasteries, castles, and caves. The
beaches of Zakynthos are home to the endangered Caretta-Caretta sea
turtle species and the famous Navagio shipwreck. Zakynthos Town is the
island's cultural center, with plenty of history to discover, including
Vientiane Castle and Solomos Square, as well as the abundance of bars
and restaurants serving traditional Greek cuisine.

ex-pats. In addition, the island is considered highly safe with meager
crime rates, which makes the residents indulge in famous raki, honey,
and other Cretan delights without worry.
we all know the Greek islands are lovely, but mainland Greece also has
charm. The Peloponnese has been the site of much of Greece's antiquity
and has some impressive ruins. Olympia, the location of first Olympic
Games in 776 BC, and the remains of a fourth-century city are just some
of the area's archaeological wonders. In addition, several medieval
towns, including Mystras and Monemvasia, will transport you back in
time. The scenery of the Peloponnese is rugged, with hiking trails
through mountains and dense forests that can lead you to more hidden
ruins. With the beautiful beaches, caves, waterfalls, and even ski
centers, this area is worth considering when buying your vacation home.

- Many expats are already living in Rhodes Town and have a strong bond that helps each other with everything from language classes and retirement forms to the best bars and how to find work.
- The entire island is easily accessible with
a decent and reliable public transportation system, but as with most
islands, having your transportation is best. Getting off the island is
relatively easy, with regular ferries to the mainland and several
airports, including an international airport for direct connections.
Island life may be idyllic, but it has some downsides; the Internet can become very slow in Rhodes (as with all islands), and shopping for large pieces of furniture is very limited and expensive.
On the plus side, the food is locally sourced, the people are friendly, and the way of life is slow, relaxed, and comfortable. In addition, the island is surprisingly green for a Mediterranean island due to the rainfall in winter.
