Crete (on Greek: Κρήτη) is the largest island in Greece. The area of the island is 8336 square km. The Capital of island – Heraklion city. Crete is divided into 4 regions: Chania, Rethymno, Heraklion and Lasithi.
The island is washed by the Cretan, Libyan and Ionian seas and has a mountainous landscape. Three majestic mountain – Lefka Ori, Ida, Dikti — a recognizable appearance of the island, which can not be confused with anything. The journey along the North and South coasts fascinates with views of the coastline with beaches, bays, bays and cliffs. A trip to the Central part – its hills covered with olive trees, as well as mountain rivers and gorges, which have their own flora and fauna.
All Cretan towns, villages and cities are connected, if not by roads, then by good roads. Visiting the main attractions of Crete does not cause any transport difficulties.
The Mediterranean climate is very favorable for living, and the nature of the island is simply mesmerizing visitors. Tourist infrastructure of Crete is better than other Islands, so Crete is one of the most popular European resorts. Tourism on the island began to develop 30-40 years ago from the Eastern region of Lasithi, where the elite resorts of Agios Nikolaos and Elounda are located. Now other areas of the island, such as Malia, Hersonissos, Agia Pelagia, Bali, Rethymno and Chania, have gained popularity.
Due to all the characteristics of the island and its popularity among travelers, real estate in Crete has become a very attractive object for foreign investment. Almost all popular objects are located on the Northern coast of the island, in such large cities as Heraklion, Rethymno, Chania and Agios Nikolaos or in their surroundings. For buyers offers many options for housing, commercial real estate, or land. Elite real estate has the greatest success in the sales market thanks to detached villas in classic or modern design style, located on the beach or nearby, with its own gardens, swimming pools and picturesque panoramic views. Prices for luxury real estate range from several hundred thousand to several million.
In addition to villas and mansions, buyers often choose spacious city apartments with stylishly decorated interiors, or modern townhouses near the sea. I would like to add that the purchase of real estate in Crete from 250 thousand euros and above allows any foreigner to issue a Greek “Golden visa” – namely a residence permit in the EU country, without the need for permanent residence in it.
