Kefalonia is the place where your stress level will drop and your enjoyment of life will rise.


Economy - Investing in the expanding European Union is always a paying proposition. The Euro has proved a strong and vital currency, competing favorably with the US dollar and the British pound, and has also contributed to the stability of the Greek economy. Greece (Hellas) has one of the highest growth rates in Europe and, given its prospects, is anticipated to keep this position in the foreseeable future. It is also a natural destination for holiday homes.

With the lowest crime rate in Europe, Greece is very safe. There are no "no-go" areas at any time of the day or night. Many Greek islands, including Kefalonia, have the lowest cost of living of all EU countries, and friendly and hospitable people who are ready to teach others how to enjoy the simple things in life. The natural environment and the great weather make it one of the best countries which to live.

Buying Property in Greece - Greece is in the process of establishing a National Land Registry, whereby official titles shall be issued for the property and secured at the same time by the state.
