For those looking for a unique and expensive Christmas gift idea, there is a small Greek island sold for 800,000 euros only. This is what the Daily Mail wrote about Little Lesbos, a 16-acre uninhabited island situated just 200 meters off Lesbos, in northeastern Aegean Sea.
This is the first time Little Lesbos is advertised internationally. The real estate agency selling it said that such properties come very rarely. And when they do, their prices are astronomical. And Little Lesbos is selling at a price that buys a small apartment in Manhattan.
Little Lesbos is located across Pamfila, a small fishing village in Lesbos that is just a ten-minute drive from Lesbos capital, Mytiline. The island is uninhabited but a building permit is easy to issue. Fresh water can be obtained by rain catching or desalination systems. It is surrounded by crystal clear, azure waters, sandy beaches and plenty of vegetation.
The current owner is Greek and in the past he had put it on sale in Greece only. He has now put it on the international market, as Vladi Private Islands agency representative said.
According to ancient writings, a female poet named Sappho lived there in 6th century B.C. and she was famous for writing about female beauty, women’s daily lives and relationships. She often expressed her love for women and the word lesbian derives from the island of Lesbos. Today, Lesbos is a top destination for lesbian couples.
