The southern most of all the Greek Islands, Crete is, by far, the largest and most popular of the islands in terms of tourism numbers and international sales of Crete property. The strength of the tourist market has encouraged British buyers to rent their property in Crete whilst not enjoying use of them themselves or purchasing specifically for investment purposes. Much of the property in Crete is representative of the 4,000 years of history the island offers and can be found on beautiful landscapes, stunning beaches and in the unspoilt seaside towns and villages which are, as yet, untouched by mass tourism and overdevelopment. For the ultimate tranquil property in Crete, the north west of the island is an area of outstanding beauty and is the greenest part of Crete. Lush vegetation meets the coast where a scattering of villages and fishing harbours appear untouched by time!
The Greek Ionian Islands are scattered off the west coast of mainland Greece, with the exception of Kythira which lies off the southern coast of the Peloponnese. The two most popular places for property on the Ionian Islands are property in Corfu and property in Kefalonia; while property in Zakynthos and property in Lefakada is surrounded by popular holiday resorts and property in Ithaca is great for those seeking a tranquil, unspoilt island untouched by mass tourism. Each Ionian island has a distinct character and appeal and between them they offer everything you could wish for from your property on the Ionian Islands. You can swim with the loggerhead sea turtles should you choose a property in Zakynthos, party the night away before returning to your property in Corfu; leave your property in Kythira to relax on its beautiful unspoilt beaches or follow in the footsteps of Homer's Odysseus to find your perfect property in Ithaca. A property in Lefakada means residing in one of the top windsurfing resorts in Europe whilst propety in Kefalonia puts you a stone's throw from the magnificent Myrtos Beach, widely regarded as being the loveliest in the Mediterranean.
The Aegean Islands; made up of Samos, Chios, Lesbos, Limnos, Ikaria and Thassos are fairly mountainous creating dramatic landscapes perfect for exploration!

Property in Ikaria, an island owing its name to the mythical Icarus, is ideal for relaxing in the islands natural thermal springs and its famous red wine; or invest in property in Thassos and visit the old Roman market place, the temple of Athena and Acropolis at Agora, wander around the ancient Thassos Town; or simply soak up the sun on Thassos's Golden Beach.
