Athens, a great European capital, still resonates with ancient history and, despite its hectic pace, cultivates a form of happiness in life, culture and entertainment.
It is not widely known, but there are more theatres in the city than in Paris. Artistic creation is overflowing, and the streets offer the decor of a Mediterranean life, where restaurants and cafés seem to compete for originality around historical and archaeological sites that set the daily life in a decor of eternity.
But Athens is also a major economic pole whose commercial dynamism is visible everywhere. A composite city with multiple faces, like those of Greek theatre, it is of increasing interest to economic investors looking for land and property opportunities.
The quality of life is, without doubt, the first return on investment.
Athens appeals for its energy, for its real estate opportunities, for its climate, for its quality of life and for the ease of travel. Add to that the cost of living, which is much lower than in many European capitals, and you will find nothing but advantages to investing here.
Mobilia Real Estate has already assisted hundreds of would-be newcomers to the Greek capital. And Athens is diverse enough to offer something for everyone.
Families often choose to live in the northern part of the city, where the houses are generally larger and more luxurious. It is true that the gardens and green areas are more enjoyable for children.
The proximity of educational establishments such as the Lycée Français or the American school is a plus. Whether in the areas of Agia Paraskevi, Dyonisos, Kifissia or Ekali, everyone will be able to find the house of their dreams, even if the prices of the properties remain significant.
Those who love the sea will certainly prefer the south of Athens, where the proximity of the beaches makes areas such as Palea Faliro, Vouliagmeni or Voula very popular.
The topology of these areas is quite peculiar and one will find many modern buildings competing for a more or less direct view of the sea. In spite of a small air of large complexes, the buildings are very pleasant and one finds a very organized and pleasant life of the district.
Those who are looking for a quieter place can find large flats in the eastern part of the city, which are not so much conquered by the hectic life of the centre with its feverish activity. The East is ideal for those who like the neighbourhood life and the gentle way of life. Some places sometimes look like little Montmarte with the buildings clinging to the sloping streets that are the hallmark of the area. Nevertheless, there is a great deal of commercial life in the area and a wide variety of shops and craftsmen still exist, which have long since disappeared in many European cities.
For those who have the city in their blood, with its furious energy, the centre of Athens is for them.
Making your own way through the eclecticism of the centre is an adventure in itself that is renewed every day. Between the chic area of Kolonaki and the post-industrial area of Gazi, the urban planner and sociologist in all of us goes from discovery to discovery in neighbourhoods such as Monastiraki, Psiri and Thisio. We wind our way between historical monuments and the traces of an ancient Athenian society devoted to trade and crafts.
Athens is a “melting pot” warmed by history, climate and the hearts of men. The range of possibilities is immense. Whether you have a life project, a residential or economic investment project, you can be sure that Athens is an answer to your needs and desires.
Mobilia Real Estate is at the heart of this dynamic that is transforming a city that was said to be lost and that is rising again with an enthusiasm and energy that cannot be found elsewhere.
