Home Prices Rise Rapidly on Many Greek Islands

Buyers looking for a beachfront home on a Greek island are faced with a mixed market as asking prices on Serifos, Naxos and Paros rise rapidly, but drop on Skopelos and Patmos.

Demand has been picking up in Greece’s residential housing market in recent months as the economy rebounds from last year’s steep pandemic-induced recession and easing travel restrictions help attract foreign buyers.

Real estate agents say that buying activity from foreign nationals has been mostly focused on southern Athens, along the coastal area called the Athens Riviera, and the islands.

Data collected by shows that the asking price for homes on the islands of Serifos, Samothrace and Poros topped the list jumping in the last year by 26.2 percent (to 2,649 euros/sq.m) 23.1 percent (to 1,066 euros/sq.m) and 20 percent (to 2,000/sq.m) respectively.

Next on the list come Antiparos, Naxos, Kythnos and Paros with hikes in selling prices reaching 17.6 percent (3,823 euros/sq.m), 15 percent (2,697 euros/sq.m.), 12.8 percent (2,255 euros/sq.m) and 12.5 percent (2,812 euros/sq.m) respectively

More than eight in ten potential home buyers on the Greek islands are foreign nationals, according to Georg Petras, CEO of Engel & Völkers in Greece, with strong interest coming from central European countries,

Strong interest is noted especially from Central Europeans coming from the DACH regions (45 percent from Germany, 15 percent from Switzerland and 10 percent from Austria) as well as the Benelux countries and the USA.


Price drops

On the downside, asking prices on the islands of Thasos, Ikaria, Skopelos and Patmos showed the biggest drop, falling 9.2 percent (1,309 euros/sq.m), 7.1 percent (1,300 euros/sq. m), 5.6 percent (1,062 euros/sq.m ) and 5.2 percent (3,359.7 euros/sq. m) respectively.

Next come Leros, Lesvos and Kea where asking prices dipped by 3.4 percent, 2.8 percent and 2.7 percent.

Demand solid demand for a holiday home in Greece, market experts warn that a recent property tax hike in the country may weigh on demand.

In June, the Finance Ministry announced an increase in the ENFIA property tax bill paid by property owners on popular islands, such as Mykonos and Rhodes.

The tax value of some homes on Mykonos, for example, jumped to 3,800 euros per square meter, from 1,200 euros. Sharp increases also appear in districts on the islands of Rhodes, Kos, and Kefalonia. The changes will take effect as of January.

Serifos is easily accessible by ferry from Piraeus port in Athens approximately 2 hours), and from some islands of the Cyclades, including Milos, Sifnos, and Kythnos. During summer, some extra routes are carried out from Lavrion port.

Discover history 

-According to mythology, Serifos was inhabited by the Cyclops, who is said to have built several of the monuments on the island, such as the White Tower and the Walls of Liomandras. 

-Moreover, Akrisios, the King of Argos, was told by an oracle that his grandson would be responsible for his downfall, so he locked his daughter Danae in the palace. In spite of this precaution, Zeus, who was in love with Danae, managed to leave her with a child by appearing in the form of golden rain. Once Danae gave birth to her son Perseas, Akrisios put both of them into a box and threw it into the sea.

Insights Greece - Ultimate Guide to Serifos
Town Square

-The box washed up on the shores of Serifos and was found by King Polydektis, who also fell in love with Danae. Wanting to get rid of Perseas, Polydektis sent him to kill Medusa, the mythological creature who turned people into stone by looking at them. With the help of the god, Perseas killed the monster. Athena gave him a shield with which he could reflect Medusa’s gaze and successfully attack her. Returning with the head of Medusa, Perseas turned Polydektis into stone.

-During the Prehistoric Times, tribes from Crete lived on the island. Phoenicians and Myceneans followed. In the 7th – 6th century BC, the Ionians used the iron on Serifos to become a great commercial and political center. During the period of the Persian Wars, Serifos was part of the Athenian Alliance. In 146 BC, Serifos came under Roman Rule and was used as a place of exile for those who were against the Romans. In the Byzantine Era, the island was used as a place of exile for political dissidents, while during the Venetian Rule, Serifos flourished commercially, because of the slaves that were brought to work in the iron mines. The Ottoman Rule was a time of great decline. Serifos took part in the Greek Revolution and was liberated along with the other Cyclades Islands in 1830. From then on, iron mining played a major role in the island’s economy, while agriculture, fishing, and tourism were also important factors in Serifos’ survival. 

Culture & traditions of Serifos

Insights Greece - Ultimate Guide to Serifos
Views from up top

-Rich and well-organised festivals by locals, the “Ktitores” (owners) as they are called in Serifos are festive events that are held by each church. The “ktitores” will serve guests the delicacies that they have been preparing all day long such as boiled goat with spaghetti, fava, salads, and local wine. 

Xylopanagia is the most important festival in Serifos. Its name comes from the “tsakomata” (fighting) with wooden sticks between men; for winning the heart of the most beautiful woman. The festival takes place on the 15th of August, around the old olive tree of the square at the most ancient church of Serifos, in the village of Panagia. According to the tradition, the couple that dances first around the olive tree in front of the church will be married within a year. Today this custom does not take place anymore, however, the festival is still one of the most important on the island, and all the locals celebrate it every year. 

-Another important festival is that of Panagia of Liomantra, near the small homonymous settlement, which takes place four times per year.

Do as locals do…For breakfast, coffee, or a cocktail at night, go to the Yacht Club, an “all-day-every-day” place to be and the local’s favourite, since 1938. 

Insider tips- Cars cannot go all the way up to Chora, and much of it is paved footpaths, so luggage and baby prams would need to be carried up and down. 

Ideal time to spend here? I would recommend staying here for at least three days.

Favorite part?

Having a slow morning, and eating breakfast at kafeneio “Stou Stratou” in the main square of Chora, while admiring the neoclassical facade of the Town Hall and church. You will find a menu full of poetry.  

What to avoid? Climbing the steps from Livadi or Kato Chora to Ano Chora, before the evening, as it is extremely hot. Try it only early in the morning or late in the evening.

Top activities

What to see 

Insights Greece - Ultimate Guide to Serifos
Amazing scenery everywhere you go

The Folklore Museum, housed in a building of traditional architecture at Kato Chora (founded in 1976), contains articles (most of which donations of the residents) from the daily life of the Serifians. The museum also contains textiles, ceramics, porcelains, utensils and tools, local traditional clothes, and other objects, while there is also the reconstruction of a traditional Serifian house. Behind the Folklore Museum, there is a small theatre with a capacity for 300 people, where several cultural events take place.

The Archaeological Collection of Serifos, situated at the Mills’ square in Chora, contains findings of the Classic, the Hellenistic, and the Roman Era that came from various areas of the island. Some of the most important exhibits of the museum are a series of headless statues and a collection of amphoras.

-The mining ruins at Mega Livadi and Koutalas region (the soil of Serifos is rich in ore deposits). The mines have been on the island since 3000 BC and gave such prosperity and strength to the islanders that in the 6th Century BC, they created their own currency. After the end of the Greek Revolution, in 1830, Serifos reopened its mines, which started operating on a big scale. Working conditions in the mines were very harsh and thousands of workers lost their lives in the mine galleries due to the inhuman working conditions and the lack of safety measures. The mines of Serifos have now been abandoned since 1964 when they closed. A neoclassical building, once the mining headquarters, overlooks the bay.

-The picturesque Chapel of Agios Konstantinos stands over a Venetian castle built in 1434 (and renovated in 1928), on the highest spot of Chora. It offers an amazing panoramic view of the sea and the close islands, ideal for sunrise or sunset.

The White Tower, an archaeological site in the Mega Livadi region, supposedly built around the 4th – 3th centuries BC. Nowadays you can admire only the remains of the walls in surroundings, still unspoiled by building development. 

-The Throne of the Cyclop, or else Psathopyrgos at Mega Livadi region, a great sunset spot. The Monastery of Taxiarches at Platys Gyalos and the Lighthouse at Spathi cape with panoramic view.          

Take a day trip to… Sifnos. The ferry between the two islands takes just 50 minutes, so you can easily hop on a boat in the morning and enjoy the island that owes its reputation as a foodie island to Nicholas Tselementes.

Can’t leave until you…

-Visit the Chrysoloras Winery at Platys Gyalos, where the owner and winemaker Christos Chrysoloras makes bio-certified wine with local grape variety (called Serfiotiko), which produces a unique white wine. 

– Walk from Chora and take the path that goes down to Livadi. You will pass by a number of blue-domed churches and chapels- it offers breathtaking views. 

Staying at an Old Captain’s House on Serifos

Spending a few days on a Greek island, staying at an original 19th Century stone house that once belonged to a great Captain, is definitely a unique experience.

Last September I was lucky enough to visit Serifos again after two years. Only this time I would spend my days and nights in an old Captain’s Mansion, ‘Captain’s House Serifos’, that was lovingly restored by Manos and Emmy, to return to its original form, retaining all those elements that take you to the past, when the Lord of the house was sailing the seas. Manos and Emmy decided to leave their hectic lives in the Greek capital and have a more relaxed and balanced life on the island of Serifos. They made over the house with their own hands, little by little, bringing it back to its original state. 


We had to climb a few steps of Kato Serifos to face the old mansion, -next to the Primary School and the Folklore Museum- with the red vintage door and the red wooden shutters, as tradition dictated. In the Captain’s houses and generally in the houses of affluent people, the frames were usually painted red, in contrast to the blue uniformity of the Cyclades. The house belonged to Captain George Peloponnese (1868-1945), the grandfather of Manos, who built it in the late 19th century. Through this house, Manos and Emmy narrate their family history to people from all over the world, offering a real time travel, and their hospitality is truly special.

After enjoying a glass of iced tea with rosemary on the terrace of the Captain’s House overlooking Livadi, the port of the island, we opened the imposing red door next to the bell. An impressive corridor with vintage concrete tiles stretched out in front of us and our journey back in time began. The house is decorated with antiques and vintage furniture that belonged to Captain George. The hall is dominated by the photo of the Captain who looks at us sternly while his rosaries are spread out on the ornately carved buffet, which he definitely must have brought from a trip to Asia. It is like he is absent on a trip and will soon make his way back home. 


The two bedrooms in the background with iron beds and vintage wooden wardrobes that are real ornaments welcomed us warmly with the sunbeams piercing through the shutters and spreading a golden light on the white sheets. There is another room, the dining room, before entering the kitchen, with embroidery, an impressive caravan, the chandelier dating from 1907 and a chest that challenges you to search, as if you will find a hidden treasure with secrets of the past.


Captain’s House has an equipped kitchen and a lovely bathroom, that are modern but retain elements of the past. In the kitchen, with its impressive black and white floor, for example, features a tiny marble sink that has been preserved, as well as an old wooden oven , which resembles a fireplace. Manos and Emmy would leave fresh eggs from their hens in our fridge, while various herbs and teas from Serifos were waiting in the cupboard to get into the vintage cups.

We loved this house because it made us feel like we were the protagonists of a historical film.
