Surrounded by crystal blue waters, the island of Thassos in the Aegean Sea is widely regarded as Greece's best kept secret.
An exceptionally beautiful front line, seaside building plot is for sale on this stunning Greek Island.
This secluded plot of land, which is 19,549 square metres in area, is close to the village of Astris on the southern side and benefits from the best climate on the island.
Thassos is the northern-most Greek island in the Aegean sea and sits just six nautical miles from the coast of Greece. It is incredibly easy to get to the island.
The enchantment of the island starts the moment the visitor steps onto one of the frequent modern ferry boats.
The most popular route is that from the mainland port of Keramote to the capital of Thassos, Lemenas, with a journey time of just thirty five minutes.
The approach to Lemenas is an experience in itself, cruising past tiny fishing villages with a backdrop of pine covered mountains. It is often called the ‘Emerald Isle’ because of this lush vegetation.
Keramote is only fifteen minute drive from Kavala’s International Airport so access to Thassos is always quick and easy.
Thassos is a truly captivating place and the lack of an airport is probably why the island is still so amazing and very Greek!
Although there is a significant increase in tourism from the nearby countries who are now members of the EEC, it has managed to avoid becoming a concrete jungle.
This wonderful plot is set in an idyllic, secluded countryside location with direct sea frontage, as can be seen from the photographs above.
Nothing can ever be built between the land and the sea. It is a perfect venue for naturists.
The land offers many options for development whether it be a holiday resort, a luxury hotel or a private villa.
The land’s gently sloping topography minimizes the quantity of landscaping needed for any development and therefore optimizes building costs.
There is ample room for swimming pools, tennis courts, parking etc.
The vendors are not aware of any accommodation on the island being designated as being exclusive for naturists.
The plot is ideal for the development of a secluded seaside holiday venue offering such accommodation.
The vendors will allow a buyer to obtain a licence for their development before completing the purchase.
This would minimize the investment required at the initial stage of the development. The granting of such a licence would increase the value of the land quite significantly.
The vendors can recommend the services of a trustworthy local engineer who could manage the whole project from start to finish enabling a buyer to have a “hands off” approach to realizing the benefits of this opportunity.
The vendor will give the purchaser of the whole plot an additional 1,017 square metres situated below the main plot and directly next to the sea (see photographs below).
This wonderful addition nestling within the rocky coastline provides the opportunity to develop a truly private entertainment area exclusive to the development with immediate direct access into the sea.
This additional plot would support an artificial beach, perhaps with an infinity pool and a BBQ area, complete with secluded bathing in crystal waters.
The options go as far as the imagination. The concept of a “private beach” cannot exist in Greece. All beaches are designated as common land and you cannot legally stop anyone from walking on them or indeed erecting an umbrella.
Your beach would be 100% private.
Unlike many parts of Europe, the tourist industry on Thassos been largely unaffected by the recent global recession and is currently enjoying an explosive increase in demand for holiday accommodation driven by a year on year increase in visitors particularly from neighbouring countries.
This is illustrated by the recent opening of a significant number of new hotels on Thassos.
There is also an increasing demand for ownership of summer properties on Thassos. Buyers love the island for its welcoming charm, clean sea and beautiful beaches.
An excellent coastal road circles the island which facilitates easy access to all parts of the island including a number of beaches used by naturists, the most famous of which is Paradise beach some fifteen kilometres from the plot.
More information about naturist beaches on Thassos can be obtained from the “Captain Barefoot” web site.
The road also eases access to the traditional villages of Thassos, many of which still retain their historical attraction.
There are many tavernas, kafenios, bars and ouzaries often set in coastal locations offering warm welcomes and typical Greek hospitality.
A wonderful villa of up to 200 square metres (plus a basement the same size as the ground floor) can be built on a plot of 4,000 square metres.
As the owner of the whole 19,547 square metre plot you could divided it up to provide plots for four large luxury villas enabling you (the developer) to recoup the building costs for the whole development.
You would then own a large luxury villa, designed and built to your own specification, in a superb location next to the sea at a zero net cost.
Each building may itself be subdivided to provide several accommodation units. The vendor is willing to divide the 19,549 square metres plot should a purchaser require a smaller plot for a single villa.
The vendors hold certificates which confirm that the land is neither “forestry” nor of any archaeological interest and thus can be developed.
The vendor holds clear and unequivocal title to the land. Electricity runs along the northern boundary of the site. The mains water supply is on the main road which circles the island and is only some 400m away.
The whole plot of 19,549 square metres is €700,000 which includes the extra 1017 square metres next to the sea.
The vendor is willing to divide the 19,549 square metre plot should a purchaser require a smaller plot for a single villa.
Front line plots of 4-5,000 square metres are available for €50 per square metre (4,000 square metres is thus €200,000).
A plot to the rear of the property is available for €30 per square metre (4,000 square metres is thus €120,000) and a more central plot is available for €40 per square metres (4,000 square metres is thus €160,000).
The additional 1,017 square metres would be available to the purchaser of a single smaller plot at a price of €25,000. Standard sale conditions would apply to the purchase of a single smaller plot.
