Every one knows that it’s been a hard decade for Greece and the Greek economy. The soap opera-like drama that we watched on media globally, and the real life struggles locally, left everyone with the impression that investment in Greece is a bit of a crazy act.
The recession lasted way too long and the Greek economy hit the bottom of what seemed to be a bottomless barrel. But reaching the bottom is not a bad thing because once you do there is only one way to go; up.
Legea: a siren you’ll want to surrender to
Greek mythology has it that Thassos was the island of the Sirens, the three dangerous and evil women-like creatures who lured male travelers with their beautiful voices. Their heady song was the trap to capture the travelers and devour them. Even the resourceful Odysseus would not have been able to break away from their spell, if his sailors hadn’t tied him on the mast.
A home for the free-spirited
There are several things that inspire our projects.
The traditional Greek philoxenia, the authentic Mediterranean lifestyle, the traveler souls of the gypsies, the sophisticated minds of the bohemians, the sea and the open sky are some of them. And they all share a common thing; freedom.
Being free is the one element that is never missing from the homes and the communities we are building. But what does “being free”, mean?
For those whose standards are not… “standard”, we create tailor-made homes.
Tailor-made homes are real dream homes with every little detail and wish of their owner embedded in the decoration, the location, the colors, fabrics, and soul of the new building.
Our latest tailor-made villa
Our latest tailor-made villa by the beach has just been recently completed, and it marks a totally new era for Novalis Terra.
Novalis Terra: the past and the future
Just very recently we celebrated our 10th anniversary here at Novalis Terra.
We made nothing fancy for it, no big celebrations. This kind of stuff never really suited our style.
But it was a really great day for us, one that was full of contemplation and positive feelings for what we have achieved and what the future is bringing. And it was a good opportunity to make big plans for a new era that’s just started.
