Our place

Leptokarya, a small town in the Dio - Olympus municipality, is the seat of the East Olympus district. Many of the area's settlements are spread along the Aegean coastline while others are located on the foothills of the legendary mount Olympus.

Olympus stands at 2.917 m high and is the highest peak in Greece which is why the ancient Greeks labeled the mountain as the holy residence of the Gods. Within it's shade one can find many marvelous and diverse villages. It's rather hard to visit Leptokarya and not fall in love with the place!Its location creates a unique and interesting micro-climate. Early in the morning the salty breezes of the Thermaikos gulf sweep the area heading for the mountains. As the day goes by the direction the breeze's direction reverses. One can almost taste the fresh oxygen along with all the flora and fauna that the light winds carry from the mountain. This micro-climate is the reason the area has been inhabited since the neolithic period.

The earliest settlements were created during prehistoric times (3.000 BC) such as Leibithra, the city of Orpheus and Eurydice or Herakleion, the area's major trade port. Another important site is Dion, the holy land of ancient Macedonia. Here visitors have a chance to visit the remains of the ancient city as well as the archaeological museum to learn about the civilization. It is in Dion where Alexander the great, before embarking on his remarkable journey that took him all the way to India, held feasts, celebrations and offered sacrifices to appease the Gods.

Leptokarya is also one of the area's best touristic attractions boasting a multitude of activities one could choose from. Beautiful sandy beaches, nice cafes, bars, traditional taverns, restaurants and a marketplace with many shops, super markets, pharmacies and even banks!

Serving as a starting point, one can use Leptokarya to visit the many traditional villages among the dense forests of lower mount Olympus. At a distance of about 8 km, we come across Palaios Panteleimonas. Filled with picturesque houses and taverns built right around the early 20th century, the visitor is immersed in a mixture of the beautiful view of Thermaikos gulf, the traditional Mediterranean cuisine and the winding old alleys of the village. Continuing our journey through the dense forest of pines and oaks we arrive at Palia Skotina and coming down the mountain we come to Palaioi Poroi from where we can enjoy the view of the old Byzantine castle of Platamonas. Platamonas is a nice tourist attraction with many fish taverns around it's port and close by we find Neoi Poroi stretching along endless sandy beaches. Last but not least, Litochoro, the gate of mount Olympus is a scenic town from where most expeditions start. It is located next to the beautiful Enipeas canyon and is also home to the old monastery of St. Dionysius.

Some of the other notable places one can visit are Katerini, the prefecture's central city, Thessaloniki, the capitol of the north filled with Byzantine sites, museums and many shopping centers, Meteora, the unique cluster of monasteries built on top of huge rock formations and Vergina, the ancient capitol of Macedonia.

BUYER'S OBLIGATIONS

When the buyer chooses the property and arranges with the seller the price, in order to carry out the property conversion process, the following steps must be made:

  1. The choice of the notary who will make the final purchase contract in accordance with the law, and will proceed the signing procedure. Although this is not stipulated by law, in order to protect the buyer, our agency carries out checking of ownership sheets and potential debts that may burden the real estate and cooperates with the notary while making the final sale contract. Also in the case that the customer has no lawyer and and translator, the agency has experienced associates who, if the buyer wishes, can be made available to the buyer.
  2. An advance agreement is a common procedure that signifies the buyer's interest in the purchase of a particular property, when giving the advance to the seller. The signing of an advance agreement has the role of a receipt for the received advance, but also for specifying the final price, the method of payment and the deadline for signing the final contract, as well as the penalties for the buyer and the seller in case of cancellation of the sale procedure.
  3. Payment of real estate transfer taxes. Before signing the final sales contract to the tax service, documents for payment of taxes are submitted. The document is made by a notary. All foreign buyers are required to withdraw a personal identification number in the tax service (AFM) before paying taxes. The tax is paid by the buyer, and the amount of tax is calculated on the basis of the value of the property specified in the sales contract or, if the stated value is less than the tax assessment, according to the tax assessment of the real estate value.
  4. Signing a sales contract and real estate transfer. As soon as the transfer tax is paid, the final buyer agreement will be signed by the buyer and the seller and mandatory in the presence of a notary. After that, the notary places the contract signed in the cadastre. One copy of the contract registered in the cadastre is retained by a notary, one copy in the cadastre and one certified copy taken by the buyer.
  5. What are the money loads for the customer. The buyer is obliged to bear the costs:
    1. Transfer Tax. In Greece, the law stipulates that, if the seller is a private person, the transfer tax is 3%. When the seller is the professional agency who built the object, the tax is 24%, and in the contract can be precise the tax (fpa) that the buyer will pay.
    2. Notary expenses, which include the cadastre are charged according to the price of the property (for example, for a real estate of EUR 50,000 is usually a fee of about 1,000 euro, and increases with the price of the property), before signing the contract, the notary will tell you the price that corresponds to your contract.
    3. Real estate agency commission 2%
    4. If you have already purchased a property, you are obliged to pay every year property tax, which is different from place to place. In Leptokarya it is 3 euro per square meter of living space.
