Many people who choose to live here have fallen in love with the place, the climate, or a person (perhaps all three). The apparently simple lifestyle is itself very attractive! However, the transition from holiday spot to home base may well show that, while blue skies endure, the reality of dealing with Greek bureaucracy is slightly less than idyllic and rarely straightforward. We hope to be able to unravel some of that annoying red tape for you, or at least point you in the direction of someone who can! We don’t claim to be an authority on every aspect of Greek law, taxes or lifestyle, but from our (and hopefully, your) experiences and from official sources such as local government offices and consulates we hope to provide useful and informative advice.
