New Property in Greece for Willem-Alexander and Máxima; April 2012
 
the volkskrant reports that the prince and princess have bought a new property in Greece.

The property contains 3 houses on 4000 square meters and has a private swimming pool, beach and harbour. It is located close to Doroufi/Portcheli, west of Krandini and close to the isle of Spetses. Acording to the newspaper the couple got to know the area when they attended the wedding of prince Nicholas of Greece in Spetses.

The property has been bought for 4,5 million euros from the German photographer Manfred Rieker (unconfirmed but reported in the Greek press). Sean Connery, Vladimir Putin and some of the Niarchos clan also have houses in the area.

The RVD says that the prime minister has been informed, but they refuse to comment on the matter since it is private.

New Villa
 
Let's face it, wealth and privilege can usually do what they want. Any, why not?? We all have the ability to do the best we can. If we had the financial ability to purchase a fabulous villa and grounds in Greece, or any other place we wanted to.....I'm sure we'd do it. The "Royal Couple" do other good works for those less fortunate. Let's wish Maxima and Willem and their family many happy days in their new 'vacation spot'.

RTL News went to Greece. The villa is quite visible from the main road and it doesn't seem to be too well protected yet. The housekeeper was standing before the gate telling journalists that it was private property. According to the news, the ex-king of Greece also has a house in the area.

Its nice to know that they brought another home after selling the Mozambique property which was a beautiful one as well.

The volkskrant has an article and some pictures of the villa (the setting reminds me of Juliana & Bernhards villa btw). According to the local hotel owner Queen Sofia spends several holidays there, among them the one last weekend. And king Constantine is building a house there too.

Hi there,
do u know which property did they bought?

NoorMeansLight 04-20-2012 10:21 AM

Very smart investment, I assume! People over there sell their properties at very low prices now. Good for them, the kids will love it! :flowers:

Catharina 04-20-2012 10:23 AM

Well, that's a brave move... They surely do have money to buy one, so I guess it's a good thing.. Not sure what the locals think about it. Even if I had the money to buy a house in Greece at the moment, I don't think I would. In fact I'd even be a bit iffy to vacation in Greece since I know how my countrymen are hated there these days, sadly. Too bad, I love Greece. :sad: They should consider Turkey too, such a lovely country as well. :smile:

what do you mean by I know my countrymen are hated there these days?

Well, that's what our news say anyway. I'm not sure how true it actually is. There are some reports saying expats and reporters have had to pretend being Norwegians etc. in Greece to avoid getting in trouble whatever that means. Supposedly it has to do with the EU related loan agreements (which us regular ppl had no say in). This is getting OT so I'll just say that I hope our countries are in good terms! We're all in same trouble here in Europe.

Here in Greece people are angry with their politicians not with people from other countries. We don't blame others for this situation that we are in just ourselves. Greeks are known for their hospitality and that hasn't changed.
Anyway I am realy excited that the crown prince couple choosed my country for their holiday home. I am sure they will feel very welcomed here!!!

Agree to all you said. Private persons are all welcome. Politicians are not.

The locals are more then happy with the purchase of the estate by TRH.
Good for the local economy,and the region is used to people with a broader view of life.
