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.
