If your clients will be foreigners you may be able to get away with little Greek.
You will definitely need a good solicitor and accountant. You'll probably also someone to act as a general translator when needed. This could be many days a month at first.
There is a LOT of bureaocracy in Greece compared to the UK where running a small business is relatively free of red tape.
A - possibly bed and breakfast or cafe/bar. We are in the early stages of all this, so really just sounding people out and getting info.
B - possibly both
C - I run an animal boarding business at the moment.
