Thanks I remember reading something about that and was wondering if it had been built.

And he has a property in the Peloponnese, and in my opinion his intention was to build a house to live in it, I think even it would be more profitable to pay rent, but I think when was published in the Greek press that could build a house, the press called it "new Tatoi" (the name didn´t liked to the Family), the communists, began to say that would have to expropriate again, and I think he doesn´t want problems with them, Tatoi was expropiated. He want to live in Greece, he doesn´t want problems.

Tatoi, this could be privatized, sold or operating with licenses.

When the Kings are in athens they reside in Britain Hotel, it has a plant for apartments.

I think this is the fourth or fifth house of which journalists speak, I remember a Patmos, it was said that he had bought it (the house was of Agha Khan), after they talk about another house in Athens, it was said that Constantine had bought it, .... then, other house in Porto Heli and other..... and after they spoke about a house that Constantine was building in the Peloponnese,"the New Tatoi"....and nothing was true...beautiful house.

First, Constantine can not buy in Greece because he has no legal personality, it is due to 1994 law, it is on the official website, and he mentioned this law in the ABC newspaper.
Protothema was the newspaper that said that Constantine was building a "new Tatoi" near Porto Heli, and other newspapers claimed he was moving to his new house ... but he was not building anything, it was not true,( I remember on the official website there was a statement asking that the news were rectified, ).

The Kings of Greece live part of the year in Britain Hotel , Athens, on zone dedicated to apartments(he explained about it in ABC newspaper in june) and he said that in Porto Heli he lives in rented house . In 2003-2013 they lived in a house in Porto Heli, it was very open to the sea, but when they decided to settle permanently in Greece, they moved to another rented house in Porto Heli by motives of security, this home is inaccessible to the press

I do not think the news is true, because they were moved to one house more safe, and this house as you can see in the picture, has a road from which you can see the pool , garden and the whole house,

I think that it is like the NEw Tatoi of Protothema, I remember that the press was saying that Constantine and Ana Maria lived in their new house, recently built, but New Tatoi not exist.

Well... something needs to be done. Tatoi looks really in poor state. It will cost a fortune to restore the house and the park around to its old splendour (another picture).

The State of Greece is bankrupt, the King has not enough funds, so maybe an "amusement park" is the only possibility. I doubt it will work, but okay.

King Constantine has sold his residence in Hampstead (North London), as he is planning to permanently reside in his new villa Porto Heli in Athens. The house in Hampstead is on sale for £11 million and is where King Constantine and his family have lived since they were exiled from Greece.

According to the article Prince Nikolaos lives in Greece, Princess Alexia lives in the Canary islands with her family and Prince Philippos lives in New York. (I think it is well known that CP Pavlos and his family live in London).

Well if they want to do an amusement park, the haunted house is ready.

Thankfully the Mon Repos villa is a much better state of repair compared to the pityful state of the Tatoi Palace.

After having seen in my above post how beautiful remains until today the Mon Repos the summer residence of the royal family in Corfu we see now an unknown to most royal residence but for a very short time.
The little palace or governorate located in the second largest city of Greece, Thessaloniki. It was built in the period 1955-1960 for the government. In 1964 he was given the royal family to be installed there when we stayed in Thessaloniki. But after two years and after the King Constantine stayed only one night in the little palace because he preferred to stay in the hotel when they were in town the little palace was given over to the government.
And today? In 2006 it was closed for renovation. But no money , no renovation yet and this beautiful building remains abandoned to fate.
