Continued growth is expected thanks to resulting development from the Olympic games including infrastructural projects such as highways, arterial roads and the Athens peripheral railway. New construction and opportunities for residential, commercial and office real estate projects continue to arise. Also, a recently revised legal framework for the establishment of real estate investment companies marks the beginning of a new approach and transparency for real estate investment in the Greek market.

Among all the Greek islands, the Cycladic islands are some of the most picturesque with white buildings and bright-blue church domes, and golden beaches meeting the Greek aquamarine sea.
The Cyclades, part of the 30-island strong archipelago in the Aegean, including Mykonos, Santorini, Paros ,Delos, Amorgos and Ios island are internationally touristed, while others such as Andros, Kea, Serifos and Sikinos island, are more favourites of the Greek population.
The islands of Mykonos and Santorini are probably the most renowned for their nightlife, shopping, restaurants and beaches. Paros, still one of the larger Cyclades islands, is becoming more and more popular as a great alternative to the busier islands of Mykonos and Santorini.
On Paros you can still enjoy good sandy beaches and old world traditional fishing villages, which come with reasonably priced hotels and a bustling nightlife. The island’s main port of Parikia has a ruined Venetian castle and an impressive Byzantine church. On the north coast the resort town of Naoussa is nearby the island's best beaches.
HOW TO GET THERE
From London Luton and Gatwick take Easy Jet to Athens and change for a domestic flight. Domestic flights are mainly with Olympic airlines, Hellas Jet and Aegean airlines. There are airports at Mykonos, Santorini and Paros. You can reach the island of Paros by plane from most international airports via Athens. The flying time from Athens to Paros is about 35 minutes. During summer, many charter flights go to the larger Greek islands.
There are good ferry connections between the Cyclades islands and the mainland and in summer, hydrofoils and high-speed catamarans as well. Between May and September it is easy to island-hop, although strong winds can upset the more sensitive hydrofoil services.
