You can choose property for sale in Greece from the olive groves of Corfu to the historic sites of Rhodes. There are the picture-perfect islands like Santorini, the party scenes of Mykonos, the glitz of the Athens Riviera, the White Mountains of Crete and the growing popularity of the mainland and Peloponnese.

There is so much to adore about Greece from the vibrant cities of Athens and Thessaloniki to the 227 inhabited islands.

Properties for sale in Greece

If you are looking for property for sale in Greece, you are in luck. Here at Your Overseas Home, we have everything from land plots to city apartments to luxury villas. The price of property for sale in Greece starts from just €50,000. For this price, you can find a land plot for sale. Alternatively, Athens has many low-priced apartments to choose from. In rural Greece, you will be able to find many old, multi-bedroom homes for sale, often requiring some level of renovation.

Many of us are attracted to the aesthetic of traditional Greek homes. We love the blue of the window frames and the pretty stone used in construction. It is possible to find old homes that have been lovingly restored so that they have modern elements whilst maintaining this charming appearance. You can find homes like these for as little as €100,000.

Greece is really perfect if you are searching for a property that benefits from the peace and quiet, while being only a short drive away from resorts, beaches and even the airport. With a budget of at least €220,000, you will be able to find a family villa of three or more bedrooms. Often, you can find villas with spectacular views of the sea and mountains.


Where to buy property in Greece

Foreign buyers tend to gravitate towards Greece’s islands. Crete, the largest of the islands, is a popular choice. The west has a traditional, laidback atmosphere while the east is known for its lively resorts.

In the Cyclades, Mykonos and Santorini are known for their stunning, white-washed buildings and being the playpens of the wealthy and glamorous.

Recently, Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian islands, was rated as the best Greek island. It came out on top for its beaches, food and drink, accommodation, tourist attractions, scenery, shopping, peace and quiet, and value for money.

Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands, has a cosmopolitan town with a remarkable medieval quarter and harbour. The east coast is populated by a string of villages, resorts, and holiday homes, while the west is less developed.

North of the Dodecanese, the Eastern Aegean islands are often overlooked by foreign buyers. If you are on the hunt for a property for sale in Greece that offers a much slower pace of life and is surrounded by natural beauty, then Lesbos, Chios or Thassos might suit you. As they are less tourist driven, there are less direct routes over there, and so, they do require a little more journey planning.

Meanwhile, the Peloponnese is connected to central Greece by a narrow piece of land called the Isthmus of Cornith. It has quaint villages, mountains, and 5 UNSECO World Heritage sites.

Greece has dynamic cities and 227 inhabited islands; we are confident you will be able to find a stretch of a sand to write your name on.
