Why not construct a house that is completely off-grid, with solar panels and your own well, you will be free of utility bills.
It may be possible to place solar panels on plot 2 to supply your electricity, also plot 2 may be more suitable for sinking a well as it is at the foot of the hil. A waste pit will need to be sunk closer to any build. There are electrical posts within meters of the plot.
Depending on what you envision for this plot, building plans for a villa with a swimming pool will cost you approximately €12,000 euros, to have a villa built, again depending on your needs will cost between €150-200,000 euros.

So what is the process of buying a property in Greece, contact the agent, then if you are convinced you are sure the property is for you, you then need to find a reliable lawyer (a must) the lawyers will communicate with one another, you will need a tax number, open a Greek bank account, the two lawyers will arrange a meeting with a notary, the notary will want to see a certificate issued from the tax office stating that tax has been paid, the notary will also want a modern survey of any land for sale, once the notary is satisfied all is legal, a contract is excepted, agents get paid, a deposit is paid to the seller, and usually two other meetings are convened, on the third meeting property changes hands.
I have a copy of the survey and copies of the original contract.
If you are a U.K resident it is not nessecarry to open a Greek Bank Account, the transaction can take place within the U.K as the seller is also a U.K resident, the transaction for the property produces a “pink slip” under Greek law this is excepted as a legal transaction.
My commission is £1500 payable in the U.K.
