Not To Mention Being Terribly Unhealthy For You.

I Remember When I Lived In The UK How Utterly Miserable The Weather Was. Not So, Greece.
The Climate Of Greece Is Primarily Mediterranean, Featuring Mild, Wet Winters And Hot, Dry Summers.
This Climate Occurs At All Coastal Locations, Including Athens, The Cyclades, The Dodecanese, Crete, The Peloponnese, The Ionian Islands And Parts Of The Central Continental Greece Region.
Say Goodbye To Miserable Weather. Move To Greece And Enjoy The Sunshine.
Reason Number 3. Massive Choice Of Places To Visit And Live In.
The Greek Islands Are Made Up Of 6,000 Islands And Islets Scattered In The Greek Seas, Of Which Two Hundred And Twenty Seven Islands Are Inhabited.
Bottom Line: You’ll Be Spoiled For Choice When It Comes To Places To Visit And Places To Buy Or Build A Home.
Reason Number 4. Is The People. Something You’ll Her Over And Over Again From Folks Who Have Visited Greece Or Moved To Live There Is The Friendly, Hospitable And Welcoming Nature Of The Greek People.
And Let’s Face It, That Has To Be A Major Plus For Anyone Considering Moving To Live In Another Country.
Reason Number 5. The Best Golden Visa In Europe.
Getting Permeant Residency In Greece Is Incredibly Easy. You Simply Invest 250,000 Euros In Property In Greece You And Your Kids [Under The Age Of 21] Can Get Permeant Residency And The Crazy Part Is That You Don’t Even Need To Live In Greece.
Reason Number 6. Once Your Visa Is Granted, It Opens The Door For You To Live And Work In The Schengen Zone.
The Schengen Area Consists Of 26 Countries And Covers Nearly All Of Mainland Europe And Includes:
Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, And Switzerland.
What Is The Schengen Agreement ?
The Schengen Agreement Is A Treaty Which Led To The Creation Of Europe’s Schengen Area, In Which Internal Border Checks Have Largely Been Abolished. It Was Signed On 14 June 1985 By Five Of The Ten Member States Of The Then European Economic Community And Enacted A Decade Later, With All Countries In The European Union (EU), Except The U.K. And Ireland, Joining Over The Coming Years. Countries In Europe But Outside The EU Have Also Joined, Including Switzerland, Norway, And Iceland. Britain Has Subsequently Left The EU – Meaning It Is Extremely Unlikely To Join Schengen In The Foreseeable Future.
Why Is It Called The ‘Schengen’ Area?
The Name Schengen Comes From The Town In Southeastern Luxembourg Where France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, And The Netherlands Signed The Original Schengen Agreement In 1985.
What Does It Mean If I Want To Travel To Europe?
The Agreement Has Abolished Border Checks At The Signatories’ Common Borders Within The Area, Allowing Individuals To Travel Freely Within It.
It Gives Residents In Border Areas The Freedom To Cross Borders Away From Fixed Checkpoints And Has Harmonized Visa Policies, Meaning That For Short Stays Of Under 90 Days, You Can Get A Schengen Visa.
Under The Schengen Agreement, Traveling From One Country To Another Within The Schengen Area Is Done Without Border Controls. In Fact, The Schengen Visa Makes It Possible To Visit All The Countries In The Schengen Area And To Cross Internal Borders Without Further Formalities.
Reason Number 7. Greece Is Pet Friendly When It Comes To Bringing Your Furry Friends With You.
