Rare opportunity to buy a "turn key - ready to live in" property on Paxos. If you buy land and build it can take 3 years to get your permits, get the house built & get the keys, not to mention the environmental impact on beautiful Paxos, spiralling costs, stress and anxiety of it all. Bear that in mind when doing your calculations.
