Ground floor (180sqm)
Entering the impressive main entrance, we find the living room area.

The beaches of Almyrida and Kalyves are about 1.5 km or 5 minutes by car. Almyrida is a very popular, summer destination and has an organized sandy beach with water sports, restaurants, cafes and everything needed for daily life. The town of Kalyves has an even more organized market with banks, post office, doctor’s office, etc.
The villa is ideal for those looking to start a business of short-term lease or, if they are already in the market, to expand their business. The size (360sqm + 180sqm basement) and its overall characteristics in combination with the appropriate management can guarantee a high annual income and can significantly reduce the repayment time of the investment.
