Looking to buy a house near the sea with views?

8 reasons to choose Schinias beach, Greece and as your place to invest.


Are you looking for a house close to the sea and with great views? Do you want to invest in real estate in Greece near the sea, close to the beach and pine forest, and also have breathtaking views of the nearest islands? If this is what you want, then Schinias beach will give you this opportunity.

Why invest in Schinias beach, Marathon?

1) It's near the capital.

2) It's a beach inside a pine forest, part of a National Park.

Schinias National Park consists of a forest, a peninsula and a bay. It's actually 3.5 km of forest directly inside a Natura 2000 park. You will hardly find such a beautiful ecosystem near Athens, and it is the longest and calmest seaside in the whole region of Attica. 

3) Extremely popular among Athenians

A rare combination of sea and pine forest makes this place unique and very popular among the residents of Athens and its guests. Just compare it yourself and check the Google reviews of the most popular beaches of Athens. You'll see that Schinias Beach has the highest unbiased public preference by far, with 4.6⭐!

6) This is the VIP area

The closest residential area to Schinias beach is named after the association of "Greek Judges and Prosecutors", making it an area of very high prestige (and the home of some very prominent Greek figures).

Starting in the late 90s there has been an explosion of building activity fuelled by the Olympics and its location next to the fabulous Schinias beach. The community has since then drastically evolved. There are now over 450 homes and apartments, many of which rent heavily year-round but mostly in the summertime to international tourists. Additionally, Schinias beach has now become a hot spot for high-end tourism.

7) It's actually relatively cheap

The index of average house prices values east of Athens at 1,659€/sqm (Q2/2021), making it the third most valuable area of Athens, after the north and south suburbs.

Furthermore, the Greek government has eliminated VAT for investments in real estate until December 2022, making it a perfect opportunity to invest in real estate right now.
