Life Changing decision

Post New Topic

My wife and I have made a life changing decision to emigrate to Zante. We both have EU
passports so brexit shouldn't ( we hope) affect us to much in that way.

I myself know a few peeps around the island who could help with some things, to help get us
started.
What I need to know what are the settling costs such as taxes average utility bills electric gas petrol etc, general running costs. for two people two (2) dogs no children.

Would it be better to rent, buy a static caravan or alternatively bring over the motorhome to live-in.
Just starting saving.

Many thanks.

Hello,just to say yours is a great idea.Im on mainland Greece near Athens and loutraki.You would save lots of money by living in a caravan or your motor home but you would I guess want to drive off and leave the motorhome on site.I have seen here a couple who have an ols motorhome that no longer runs and they leave it on site to live with a summer outside kitchen and toilet/shower,just has light bamboo walls,its right next to the beach,so nice.But they own the small piece of land its on.You would have to be on site with rent if you dont own the land.I would buy a small bit of land,so cheap now.Make a bore hole for water,put photovoltic for electricity and hot water panel,you can place the electricity panels away from the home then you dont have to have home in the boiling sun.Great chance for you to start at the basics and save money.The only thing is you need an address for your tax number here,must be a way around it,or buy a shacky place so you have an address,then put your alternative stuff.You must remember to make your home secure as there is a lot of robbery these days,secure well your caravan etc.. because if they can get it out of your land they may well steal it,being on site is obviously safer and more secure with others around.You will need to register as a resident on your arrival,if you intend to stay over ninety days,at the police station or council.source your food,lovely fresh milk yoghurt,meat and cheeses,all local.Good luck to you,have fun.
