Hello Elen!
Thanks for the reply. Im still new to this forum and have yet to know how everything works.

1) I am planning to check initially a ground floor 3 room flat(2 bedroom) say around 60sq metres not old or in need of renovation. Hopefully should have electric heating, 220 volts electricity, hot water facility, a natural fireplace, enough water pressure to make a washing machine work,It could be located say 500 metres away from the sea beach. Since I plan to keep a hyundai accent car it can be not very far from the village/town.

Optional are:Swimming Pool/verandah/Additional land to the flat.

In fact I saw Neo Fokea, Mudania, Kalithea and I liked these places.

2) I am a multilingual communicative guy (I know 5 languages) so Im sure within 6-8 months I can do a course at the Aristotles University in Greek.

3) Although I am ok on my finances but IF possible id like to be busy.
Certainly not a sloggish job but something to keep me busy, moving.
It could be a small family bizness. Though my priority is to ENJOY my life as I have slogged enough!
Any advise?

4) I also wanted to know what is the monthly need for a family of three if u have a flat, a car and spend your money accurately!

5) What are the problems people usually face when they shift to Greece?
health issues etc

6) How is winter in these places?
