As an integrated group of companies specializing in real estate and residential construction, Anita and Pelagia Papamatheaki explain why their company is a leader in the industry and why Crete Construction has received numerous awards for its unique residential projects.
Creta Houses and Crete Construction operate in various sectors within the real estate industry. With a team of experienced professionals, the company has been active in the sector for the past 20 years.

Their services include the promotion and sale of all types of properties, such as land, plots, traditional and luxury houses, and commercial properties. Additionally, their construction department handles a range of projects, including luxury, traditional, and holiday homes, project implementation and design, and the restoration/renovation of traditional buildings. They also provide investment advisory and guidance services, and have recently developed a support team for the Golden Visa program.
The key factors that set Creta Houses and Crete Construction apart from the competition are their experienced team and their commitment to understanding and meeting the needs of each buyer.

The unique landscapes of these locations, combined with the expertise of renowned architects who prioritize environmental preservation, contribute to the projects' distinctiveness. Additionally, the high-quality construction services provided by Creta Houses and Crete Construction make their projects highly sought after by buyers.
Despite challenging global economic conditions, there is still a strong demand for holiday homes in Greece. Greece has always been a popular tourist destination due to its rich history, culture, and civilization. Visitors from all over the world are attracted to the country's year-round opportunities for relaxation and exploration of its cultural heritage. Despite the difficulties faced by the European continent in recent years, investors recognize the potential that Greece holds for the future, leading to a growing investment market.
Crete is at the center of market interest due to its rich tradition and the warmth of its people. Additionally, the island offers a wide range of activities and choices for travelers. With three airports, two fully operational ports, an improving road network, and a new airport under construction, Crete provides excellent transportation and infrastructure. The island's unique landscapes, combined with its hospitality and cuisine, further enhance its appeal. While all areas of Crete are in demand, there has been a recent shift of investors towards the southern part of the island. Many buyers are seeking to escape urban centers and settle in the unexplored landscapes of the South, where prices are attractive.
The holiday home sector in Greece has a promising future. Over the past three years, there has been a significant increase in tourist and investor arrivals. The COVID-19 pandemic has also given rise to a new category of investors known as digital nomads, who can work remotely from anywhere in the world. Greece, particularly Crete, has become a top choice for these individuals due to its tranquility, beauty, and recreational opportunities. Additionally, the energy price crisis has driven many northern Europeans to seek refuge in Crete, where mild winters and sunny days reduce the cost of living. Considering these factors, it is clear that Crete is poised for a significant boom in the near future.
