The islands of Spetses and Hydra have long been known as the homelands of some of the most valiant naval commanders of the Greek revolution while in more recent years, the whole region played an important part in national matters of commerce & nautical training.
H.M King Konstantinos, the former King of Greece, has found a permanent home at the small fishing village of Porto Cheli, while the Niarchos family, one of the most prominent shipping dynasties in the entire world still maintains a summer mansion at their very own private island, Spetsopoula.
In recent years, the whole region of Porto Heli, has managed to become established as the no1 vacation home destination for affluent Greeks & foreigners alike, offering tremendus opportunities for investors that know where to look.
Due to it’s close proximity with Athens, the Greek Riviera is often considered an ideal choice for short weekend breaks with an emphasis on party lifestyle, culture and relaxation. The many events that take place at the Saronic Islands, such as the Armata festival, the Spetses Classic Regata as well as the Epidavrous Drama Festival offer fantastic opportunities for holidays all-year round.
In recent years, yachting crowds in Greece have been moving south-west to discover the calmer waters and new developments of what the local buzz is calling a new Greek Riviera, encompassing Spetses, nearby Hydra and Porto Heli. Whereas the infamous meltemi winds can hamper July and August cruises in the Cyclades, the Greek Riviera has very steady winds, which are predictable and breathe freshness, but also are mild enough that they don’t create anxiety about anchoring and drifting.
