This unique property comprises a private island in the centre of the ionian Sea. Named Nissos Sofia and part of the Echinades complex, the small island is a green paradise of protected natural environment. With a long sea front, gentle sloping terrain and proximity to the west coast of mainland Greece, Nissos Sofia offers a great development opportunity, either for a private residence or a small, exclusive residential resort.

The island has a surface of c. 176, 000 sqm; it is flat, with ample vegetation and all along its West coast it is covered by perennial cedars. The landscape is breath-taking, the sea shallow and as clean as it could ever be. The island has single ownership by one privte individual and there are clear and marketable title deeds, so the island is readily available for transfer. The region has been designated as a RAMSAR site - a fact that ensures a high level of privacy and tranquility to its residents. There are valid certificates regarding the designation of shoreline, the forest/ non-forest areas, and the absence of areas of archeological interest.

The island has obtained a number of certificates and has progressed planning status. According to the standing laws, it can be used for private residence, as well as for moderate operation as a small resort (renting-hosting). Large part of the island has been characterised as private forest land by the Forestry which offers immense privatcy and a serene natural environment. According to the building regulations, 6 houses of 130 sqm each can be built under its full development capacity.
