You loved the house you rented by the sea. You went for romantic seaside promenades. You enjoyed the finger-licking food. You collected the sun on a sandy beach and swam in crystal-clear waters. These are just a few of the perks you have enjoyed during one of your visits as a tourist in Greece.
Now you’re thinking about investing in a vacation home of your own. After all, you’ve been renting from other people who own vacation rentals. Why shouldn’t you consider buying one yourself?
Investing in a vacation home is a great opportunity to make sure you always have a place to stay for a vacation on your favorite Greek island, while creating a second income, if you choose to rent it out. It will be a home away from home, a place to invite friends and family to enjoy their vacations and share some memories with you.
In the central Aegean Sea, you find the Cyclades, the islands that appear on every tourist brochure with traditional cuboid whitewashed homes and pebbled streets with small taverns under a canopy of pink bougainvilleas. This group of islands is easy to reach from Athens by ferry or plane, even direct flights from many European capitals.
In the Cyclades, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding your ideal summer home. From the wild hedonism of Mykonos to the second-to-none beauty of Santorini or the quiet charm of Syros, from modern luxury villas to small seaside traditional homes, there’s an island and a house for everyone.
Here are just a few of the most sought-after Cycladic islands to start your property search, based on your personal taste:
Mykonos: Meeting point of the international jet-set
Dazzling sugar-cube houses with colorful railings line up down narrow winding alleys: Mykonos is picture-perfect and has been the meeting place for international jetsetters for more than 50 years. In the evenings, people meet in the trendy bars for prosecco and laid-back music. During the day fancy yachts take you to sandy beaches with azure waters.
While the rich and famous get in the mood in the early evening, hundreds gather to admire the sunset in front of the famous windmills. The lights of the neighboring islands flicker on the horizon. Gradually the lanterns go on down in the old town with the famous captain’s houses of Little Venice. Now the night can begin.
Discover your perfect Mykonos villa and live the magic of the Queen of the Cyclades every summer.
Santorini: Timeless, one-of-a-kind beauty
You probably know where the typical photos from Greece were taken, right? The ones with the blue church domes and the white houses? Everyone knows the answer, even those who have never been to Santorini. The village of Oia (pronounced E-a) is the top (photo) model among the Greek island villages.
Known as one of the most romantic islands of Greece, Santorini is popular for having one of the best sunsets in the world. Which island could be more perfect to spend your summer days with your loved one(s)?

Paros: The relaxed up-and-comer
Traditional sugar-cube houses with blue wooden shutters and a cat lazing nearby. This is the scenery of your everyday walks in Paros. Resting gracefully in the heart of the Aegean archipelago, Paros is an up-an-coming gem with a big advantage, that few of its neighboring islands share; it has a fun option for everyone regardless of age.
A whitewashed capital, narrow cobbled streets, second-to-none water sports facilities, fashionable bars and restaurants and picturesque villages, all the more charming for their relative lack of hordes of tourists crowding in. If you are looking for a vivid nightlife without the unnecessary commotion, Paros is definitely the island for you!
