Property for rent in Greece
Greece is not a very popular country to go and live and work. This depends in large part on the fact that there are not so many international companies and therefore the possibility of making a career is perhaps not as easy as in other European destinations.
But in recent years the situation is changing and the prospect of living in Greece is becoming very attractive to many people, especially since it joined the EU. Greece is an extremely lively country, famous all over the world for its climate, history, architecture and culture.
It is generally a very safe place and the level of crime is quite low. Greece has one of the lowest life costs in the European Union, although cities like Athens are generally more expensive than the rest of the country.
Athens is one of the cities with the most requests for properties for rent in Greece and in the capital itself there are many areas and very different prices of properties for rent depending on the area.
The North part of Athens is in great demand by families looking for properties for rent because it is home to many foreign schools. The most popular choice is Kifissia, full of shops and restaurants. Here properties for rent are very beautiful and luxurious.
Near Kifissia we find Maroussi, a green area and home to many international and Greek companies.
If you are looking for properties for rent at more affordable prices, a little further from the central areas are Ekali, Dionysos and Drossia. Here the most numerous type of property for rent is that of very large houses with more affordable prices.
In the southern part of Athens, the neighbourhoods that have the most requests for properties for rent are Glufada and Voula. The properties for rent here are almost all newly built, in excellent condition and close to the sea. These locations are also chosen for the intense nightlife.
The centre of Athens is more noisy and chaotic but full of life and charm and the neighbourhoods where the best properties for rent are located are Kolonaki, Hilton, Pangrati, Mets and Pigilis. Here properties for rent are not new, but characteristic and close to historical monuments.
In Greece there are many places where you can find interesting and beautiful properties for rent. Among these we can highlight the Ionian Islands and the Sporades, Simi, Póros, Lesbos, Crete which is the largest of the Greek islands, Mykonos, Hydra which is a car-free paradise and finally the island of Paxos very elegant and pristine, famous among the affluent Europeans.
