在希腊,尽享高尔夫别墅的惬意生活

With its myriad beaches, picturesque islands and excellent cuisine, Greece has long attracted vacationers and second home buyers from all over the world. The country’s up-and-coming golf scene is another draw to add to this list.

希腊拥有无数海滩、风景如画的岛屿和卓越的美食,长期以来吸引着世界各地的度假者和别墅买家。该国蓬勃发展的高尔夫业成了又一个卖点。

New courses are being built in Greece, or have recently debuted, while existing ones have seen renovations. And according to Michael Valdes, president of the real estate firm eXp Global, the sport is driving a growing real estate market that’s appealing to buyers from places such as Britain, the United States, Scandinavia, Germany and France.

希腊正在兴建多处新球场,有一些最近已经落成,还有旧球场在翻新。据房地产公司eXp全球总裁迈克尔·巴尔德斯说,这项运动正在推动房地产市场的增长,吸引着来自英国、美国、斯堪的纳维亚、德国和法国等地的买家。
 

科斯塔·纳瓦里诺位于梅塞尼亚地区,占地2500英亩,有4个18洞球场,其中包括伯恩哈德·朗格尔设计的沙丘球场。

“Golf is a new discovery in Greece and an additional reason for second home buyers and retirees to purchase a property in a country that already has a lot to offer,” Mr. Valdes said. “A decade ago, people flocked to the Algarve in Portugal or southern Spain when they wanted a golf home coupled with other diversions. Now, they’re turning to Greece.”

“高尔夫在希腊是一个新发现,也是别墅买家和退休人士在这个已经有很多卖点的国家购买房产的新原因,”巴尔德斯说。“十年前,如果人们想要高尔夫别墅并获得其他娱乐活动,他们会涌向葡萄牙的阿尔加维或西班牙南部。现在,他们来到希腊。”

Greece’s affordability, compared with other vacation home destinations in Europe, is helping to push the market forward, Mr. Valdes said. “Your money will go a lot further here than it does in many other countries,” he said.

巴尔德斯说,与欧洲其他别墅胜地相比,希腊的物价正在推动市场发展。“你的钱在这里会比在其他许多国家更值钱,”他说。

Katerina Katopis-Lykiardopulo, an Athens-based hospitality and real estate consultant, agreed and said that the price for a three-bedroom single-family home near the water starts at $350,000. “Further, day-to-day living is inexpensive with regards to prices for groceries, meals out and entertainment such as concerts and movies,” she said.

住在雅典的酒店和房地产顾问卡特琳娜·卡托皮斯-利基亚多普洛同意这种说法,她说,一套靠近水边的三居室独栋住宅起价35万美元。“此外,在日常生活方面,买菜、外出就餐,以及音乐会、电影等娱乐方面的价格都很便宜,”她说。

The high quality of life in Greece is also compelling to second home buyers, according to the New York-based Greek chef Maria Loi, who is filming a series for PBS in Greece titled “The Life of Loi: Mediterranean Secrets.”

住在纽约的希腊厨师玛丽亚·洛伊说,希腊的高质量生活对别墅买家也很有吸引力。她正在为PBS在希腊拍摄一个名为《洛伊的生活——地中海的秘密》(The life of Loi: Mediterranean Secrets)的系列节目。

“The weather is generally sunny year-round; the food — produce, meats and seafood — is fresh and healthy,” Ms. Loi said. “Plus, the locals couldn’t be friendlier, and the infrastructure is strong with good roads and hospitals.”

“基本上全年天气晴朗;食物——农产品、肉类和海鲜——都新鲜健康,”洛伊说。“另外,当地人非常友好,基础设施很好,有良好的道路和医院。”

According to sothebysrealty.com, searches for Greece and golf lifestyle increased by 205 percent from January through July of this year, compared with the same period in 2021. Also, Savvas Savvaidis, president and chief executive of Greece Sotheby’s International Realty, said that the company had $50 million in home sales in Greece in 2022 in areas or developments where golf is a main interest, compared with $10 million in 2017.

据sothebysrealty.com网站统计,今年1至7月,对希腊和高尔夫生活方式的搜索量与2021年同期相比增加了205%。此外,希腊苏富比国际房地产公司总裁兼首席执行官萨瓦斯·萨瓦伊迪斯表示,该公司2022年在希腊的房屋销售额中,以高尔夫为主要兴趣的地区或开发项目有5000万美元,而2017年则为1000万美元。

Most of the market for golf homes in Greece is concentrated in the Peloponnese, but Glyfada, a suburb of Athens, and the island of Crete, also figure in.

希腊高尔夫别墅的大部分市场集中在伯罗奔尼撒半岛,不过雅典郊区的格利法扎和克里特岛也有。

Here is a look at the real estate markets in the three areas:

以下是对这三个地区房地产市场的分析:

The Peloponnese

伯罗奔尼撒


Located in southern Greece, the Peloponnese is a vast peninsula that covers more than 8,200 square miles. Ms. Katopis-Lykiardopulo said that the region had Tuscan-like rolling hills and olive groves and a long, scenic coastline. “It’s incredibly beautiful and definitely the heart of golf and golf homes in Greece,” she said.

伯罗奔尼撒半岛位于希腊南部,面积超过8200平方英里(约合2.1万平方公里)。卡托皮斯-利基亚多普洛说,该地区有托斯卡纳式的起伏丘陵和橄榄林,还有风景优美的漫长海岸线。她说:“这里非常漂亮,绝对是希腊高尔夫球和高尔夫别墅的中心。”

Costa Navarino, in the southwest Peloponnese in the Messenia region and about a three-hour drive southwest of Athens, is a nearly 2,500-acre golf-centric development with four 18-hole courses. The Dunes Course, featuring views of mountains and tall sand dunes and designed by the German professional golfer Bernhard Langer, opened in 2010, along with the first phase of the resort. The Bay Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones II and notable for its unobstructed sea views, followed the next year.

科斯塔·纳瓦里诺位于伯罗奔尼撒半岛西南部的梅塞尼亚地区,距离雅典西南约3小时车程,是一个占地近2500英亩(约合10平方公里)、以高尔夫球场为中心的开发项目,有4个18洞球场。沙丘球场由德国职业高尔夫球手伯恩哈德·朗格尔设计,以山景和高大的沙丘为特色,于2010年与度假村一期一起开放。第二年,海湾球场开业,由罗伯特·特伦特·琼斯二世设计,以一览无余的海景而闻名。

Two more courses, designed by the Spanish professional golfer José Maria Olazábal, opened in February and have views of the Ionian Sea and Bay of Navarino. Nuno Sepúlveda, Costa Navarino’s general manager of golf, said that although the courses were private, membership was not required to play; the cost is about $240 a round. “Anyone is welcome,” he said.

还有两个球场于今年2月开放,由西班牙职业高尔夫球手何塞·玛里亚·奥拉扎尔设计,可以看到爱奥尼亚海和纳瓦里诺湾的景色。科斯塔·纳瓦里诺高尔夫总经理努诺·塞普尔韦达表示,虽然这些球场是私人的,但但打球不需要会员资格;费用大约是240美元一轮。“欢迎所有人,”他说。

Costa Navarino also has three hotels,: the Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort; the Westin Resort Costa Navarino; and W Costa Navarino. A Mandarin Oriental is scheduled to open in 2023.

科斯塔·纳瓦里诺还有三家酒店,分别是:Romanos豪华精选系列酒店;科斯塔纳·瓦里诺威斯汀度假村;W·科斯塔·纳瓦里诺。一家文华东方酒店计划在2023年开业。

Evgenios Dendrinos, the resort’s real estate director, said that the development offered residences that were branded (affiliated with a hotel brand) and unbranded. Eighty apartments and 10 villas are complete, and 43 more villas are slated to be ready by early next year.

度假村的房地产总监埃夫吉尼奥斯·登德林诺斯说,该项目提供的住宅包括有品牌的(附属于酒店品牌)和无品牌的。80栋公寓和10栋别墅已经完工,另外43栋别墅计划在明年初完工。

The apartments are part of the Residences at the Westin Resort Costa Navarino and average 1,200 square feet in size. They feature sea views and a contemporary aesthetic that’s inspired by local architecture with elements such as stone walls and archways; prices start at $700,000 for a two-bedroom property.

这些公寓是科斯塔纳瓦里诺威斯汀度假酒店住宅的一部分,平均面积为1200平方英尺(约合110平米),以海景和当代美学为特色,灵感来自当地的建筑元素,如石墙和拱门;两居室起价为70万美元。

Villas range from 2,500 to 12,000 square feet and have between three and seven bedrooms, private swimming pools and large patios. Environmentally friendly features include green roofs that naturally cool homes and minimize the use of air conditioning, recycled and local building materials where possible, solar water heaters, recycled water and ample natural light to cut down the reliance on artificial lighting. Prices start at $1.3 million.

别墅面积从2500平方英尺到12000平方英尺不等,有三到七间卧室、私人游泳池和大露台。环保方面的特色包括可自然降温、尽量减少空调使用的绿色屋顶,尽量使用可回收当地建材,太阳能热水器,循环水和减少对人工照明依赖的充足自然光线。起价130万美元。

Costa Navarino homeowners have access to amenities that include multiple restaurants, a spa, two gyms, concierge services, a tennis center with 16 courts, a kids club and a watersports center.

科斯塔·纳瓦里诺的房主可以使用的设施包括多家餐厅、一个水疗中心、两个健身房、礼宾服务、一个有16个球场的网球中心、一个儿童俱乐部和一个水上运动中心。

Looking to the eastern Peloponnese, in the region of Porto Heli, Kilada Country Club, Golf & Residences is a $400 million development that’s opening next year. It spans almost 500 acres on a hilly plot of land and has panoramas of the Mediterranean Sea.

来到伯罗奔尼撒半岛东部的赫利港地区,基拉达乡村俱乐部、高尔夫和住宅是一个价值4亿美元的开发项目,将于明年开业。它占地近500英亩,位于丘陵地带,地中海美景一览无余。

According to Miltos Kambourides, the founding partner of the project’s developer, Dolphin Capital, Kilada’s main selling point is the Jack Nicklaus signature course. He said that the development’s first phase would include the course, a beach club, 90 home lots and numerous townhouses and apartments. Prices for the latter begin at $480,000 while lots cost at least $350,000.

据项目开发商海豚资本的创始合伙人米尔托斯·坎布里兹说,基拉达的主要卖点是杰克·尼克劳斯的招牌课程。他说,开发的第一阶段将包括球场、一个海滩俱乐部、90块住宅用地和大量联排别墅和公寓。后者起价为48万美元,而地块的价格至少为35万美元。

Glyfada

格利法扎


Located a 20-minute drive south of central Athens, Glyfada is a suburb that is part of the Athenian Riviera because of its setting along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. Elegant and sprawling, it has upscale stores, vibrant beachfront restaurants and cafés and stylish bars.

格利法扎位于雅典市中心以南20分钟车程的地方,是雅典里维埃拉的一个郊区,位于地中海的海岸线上,因此是雅典海滨地区的一部分。它优雅宽广,有高档商店、充满活力的海滨餐厅、咖啡屋和时髦的酒吧。

Glyfada is also home to the country’s oldest golf course, open since 1962 and part of the Glyfada Golf Club of Athens. With views of Mount Hymettus, it is a forest like setting that includes an abundance of pine and olive trees and was renovated last year.

格利法扎也是希腊历史最久的高尔夫球场所在地,该球场自1962年开放,是雅典格里法达高尔夫俱乐部的一部分。从这里可以看到海米图斯山,整体上是一种森林景观的设计,有大量的松树和橄榄树,去年还进行过翻新。

“The face-lift coupled with the increased interest in the Athenian Riviera as a destination has definitely brought in an influx of international home buyers,” said Fanis Spiliotopoulos, owner of the Athens real estate firm Infocasa. “Most are from Scandinavia, England and Germany.” He said that his sales of properties near the course doubled in total dollars in 2021 from 2020.

“改造加上人们对雅典里维埃拉旅游胜地的兴趣增加,无疑吸引了大批国际购房者,”雅典房地产公司Infocasa的老板范尼斯·斯皮利奥托普洛斯说。“大多数人来自斯堪的纳维亚半岛、英国和德国。”他说,2021年,他在高尔夫球场附近的房产销售总额比2020年翻了一番。

Glyfada offers apartments in high-end developments, some of which have swimming pools and gardens. The suburb also has single-family homes, but Mr. Spiliotopoulos said that many have been torn down in the last decade to make room for new apartments, which are primarily in four-story buildings. He said that apartment prices start at $557 per square foot and reach up to $836 per square foot for top-floor sea view properties with private swimming pools.

格利法扎提供高端开发项目的公寓,其中一些带游泳池和花园。那里的郊区也有独户住宅,但斯皮里奥托普洛斯说,在过去十年中,许多住宅被拆除,以便为新公寓腾出空间,这些公寓主要以四层楼建筑为主。他说,公寓价格从每平方英尺557美元起,最高可达每平方英尺836美元,为带私人游泳池的顶层海景物业。

Besides golf, Glyfada offers numerous diversions for homeowners, with beach going topping the list. Mr. Spiliotopoulos said that the beach season runs from April to November. Outside of these months, homeowners can enjoy culture in Athens at sites like the National Archaeological Museum, the new Goulandris Museum of Contemporary Art and the recently refurbished National Gallery in Athens.

除了高尔夫,格利法扎还为房主提供了许多消遣,以海滩为首选。斯皮里奥托普洛斯说,海滩季节从4月持续到11月。在这几个月之外,房主可以在国家考古博物馆、新的古兰德里斯当代艺术博物馆和最近翻新的雅典国家美术馆等地享受雅典的文化。

“Glyfada is a very desirable area to live because of the seaside setting and because you get the best of many worlds,” Mr. Spiliotopoulos said. “As a prospective golf home buyer, it’s a strong proposition for an investment.”

“格利法扎是一个非常宜居的地区,因为它位于海边,而且因为你可以享受到许多方面的好处,”斯皮里奥托普洛斯说。“对一个有意购买高尔夫房产的人来说,这是个有力的投资主题。”

Crete

克里特岛


The largest of the Greek islands, Crete is situated south of the mainland and is easy to reach with its two airports that operate flights between Athens and cities throughout Europe.

克里特岛是希腊最大的岛屿,位于大陆以南,拥有两个机场,有往来雅典和欧洲各城市的航班,交通便利。

Crete’s main golf course is at the Crete Golf Club, a members-only establishment near the capital city of Heraklion. Open since 2003 and designed by the golf course architect Bob Hunt, it was built on a hilly plot of land and features vistas of the nearby mountain range and the Aegean Sea.

克里特岛的主要高尔夫球场位于克里特岛高尔夫俱乐部,这是一个靠近首府伊拉克利翁的会员制场所。球场于2003年开放,由高尔夫球场建筑师鲍勃·亨特设计,建在一片丘陵地带,可以尽享附近山峦和爱琴海的美景。

The club’s owner, Eftichios Vassilakis, said that the course was extensively renovated in 2018 with new landscaping, trees and water features, and that most members are vacationers or second home buyers who own properties in the area.

该俱乐部的老板埃夫蒂基奥斯·瓦西拉基斯表示,球场于2018年进行了大规模翻修,新增了景观、树木和水景,大多数会员都是在该地区拥有房产的度假者或第二房产置业者。

Mr. Savvaidis, of Greece Sotheby’s International Realty, said that there was a fast-growing real estate market near the club. “People, mainly Europeans, always bought in Crete because of the scenery and beaches, but the golf is captivating new buyers,” he said.

希腊苏富比国际地产的萨瓦伊迪斯表示,俱乐部附近的房地产市场发展迅速。“人们——主要是欧洲人——向来是因为风景和海滩在克里特岛买房,但高尔夫正在吸引新买家,”他说。

Mirum Elounda Villas, just under an hour’s drive from the course, is among the most upscale options and has spacious homes that have between five and six bedrooms, large indoor and outdoor spaces for entertaining and swimming pools. Mr. Savvaidis said that prices start at $2 million and that homeowners have access to amenities that include a private beach, a spa, watersports and several restaurants.

离球场不到一小时车程的米鲁恩伊鲁达庄园是最高端的选项之一,包括一些五到六卧室的宽敞宅邸,配有大量室内外康乐设施以及游泳池。萨瓦伊迪斯说售价为200万美元起,业主可以使用一些便利设施,包括一座私人沙滩、一座水疗中心、水上运动中心以及多家餐馆。

The coastline near the Crete Golf Club is also dotted with single-family homes and apartments. Mr. Savvaidis said that the latter is a little more affordable, with three-bedroom residences in upscale buildings averaging $600,000.

克里特高尔夫俱乐部附近的海岸线上也散布着一些独栋住宅和公寓。萨瓦伊迪斯说后者相对便宜,高层公寓楼里的三卧室住宅均价60万美元。

Although it’s an island, Crete is autonomous from mainland Greece, he said. “It functions like its own country with good health care and a solid infrastructure,” he said. “It’s a destination that ticks all the boxes of everything you want from a vacation home, with golf as the newest highlight.”

他说克里特虽然只是一座岛屿,但却不受希腊大陆管辖。“它就像一个独立的国家,有良好的医疗和可靠的基础设施,”他说。“这里满足了你对一个度假屋的一切需求,现在又加上了高尔夫这样一个亮点。”
