Rafina Guide

The Greek town of Rafina lies on the east coast of the Attica region of Greece. The town, and its port, is on the Aegean Sea coast, to the east of the Penteli Mountains and to the north east of the Mesogaia Plain. The Greek capital, Athens, is 25 km to the west of Rafina which is close to the towns of Artemida and Nea Makri. It is a popular destination for Athenians, due to its proximity to Athens, who drive out of the city to Rafina to eat in one of the town’s many fish restaurants that line the harbour. It is common to see the day’s catch on display on beds of ice outside each restaurant.

Rafina’s port is the second largest in the Attica region, after Piraeus, although this is likely to change by the port at Lavrio which is currently being expanded. ferries from Rafina’s port depart to the southern part of Euboea and to most of the Cyclades Islands. Both conventional and high speed ferries operate to the islands with most departing Rafina in the morning.

Andros Guide

The Greek island of Andros is located around 10 km to the south east of the island of Euboea and 3 km to the north of the island of Tinos and is one of the Cyclades group of islands. Andros is roughly 40 km long and 16 km wide at its widest point. The island, with a rich maritime tradition, is also the northernmost of the Cyclades island. The island’s inland and coastal terrain is characterised by mountain ranges interrupted by plains, vegetation and streams with a rocky coastline interrupted by sandy beaches. The island’s capital is named Hora (which is Greek for main village) where visitors will find a mix of architectural styles ranging from typical Cycladic, to neo-classical and medieval. Wandering around the village, visitors will be greeted by narrow streets, lovely churches and museums, a large square and a number of cafes and restaurants. On an islet that is connected to the main island there is also a Frankish castle, complete with an arched stone bridge that dates back to the 13th century.

From the island’s port, ferries can be taken to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina along with the other islands in the Cyclades and Ios, Santorini, Kimolos, Naxos, Anafi and Amorgos.

Andros (GreekΆνδροςpronounced [ˈanðros]) is the northernmost island of the Greek Cyclades archipelago, about 10 km (6 mi) southeast of Euboea, and about 3 km (2 mi) north of Tinos. It is nearly 40 km (25 mi) long, and its greatest breadth is 16 km (10 mi). It is for the most part mountainous, with many fruitful and well-watered valleys.[1]The municipality, which includes the island Andros and several small, uninhabited islands, has an area of 380 km2(146.719 sq mi).[2] The largest towns are Andros (town), Gavrio, Batsi, and Ormos Korthiou.

The island is famous for its Sariza spring at Apoikia, where the water flows from a sculpted stone lion’s head. Palaeopolis, the ancient capital, was built into a steep hillside, and the breakwater of its harbor can still be seen underwater. Andros also offers great hiking options.[3]

NEWS: The Greek Golden Visa Program is growing…




The Golden Visa Programme was launched in Greece in 2014 and since then has seen rapid growth with International investors embracing the option to invest in Europe. Since then, it has been optimized to include more flexible, inclusive, and friendly terms.

In an effort to attract a broader variety and an even larger number of investments, the Greek government is discussing a few upcoming amendments for the Golden Visa Programme.

Even though the amendments have not been voted upon yet, the alleged changes will include the following:

  • Investors will now be able to apply for a Golden Visa (permanent residence permit) by depositing funds, 400.000€ or more, in a Greek Bank, without the option for withdrawals for several years.
  • They will also be able to invest in an already established Greek company by becoming a shareholder by participating in the capital increase of the company by investing once again 400.000 €. Previously, they were only able to start a their own business rather than invest in an already established one.
  • Moreover, assets like government bonds or listed shares will also be considered an eligible investment, further broadening the options for investors.

It is important to note that this is a positive change, increasing the options offered to foreign investors that wish to apply for a permanent residence permit in the Schengen Zone and as far as we know these changes will not affect the existing terms of the Programme. 

To put this into context, so far one could apply for a Golden Visa either by purchasing any type and any number of real estate in Greece, or setting up a company in Greece, both at a minimum of 250.000€ . These options will continue to exist. The changes stated about are merely add-ons, at a higher minimum amount of investment, for investors who are interested in alternative business endeavors.
