Greece’s Little-Known Desert Captured on Drone Video



An arid piece of land in the north-western Peloponnese has been dubbed the “Greek Desert” for its sand dunes and relative lack of vegetation.

Located near the village of Vartholomio, the area of Thines has now been offered for sale by the Greek privatization agency (TAIPED).

Situated near a magnificent beach, only 35 km (22 miles) north of the town of Pyrgos and west of Ancient Olympia, Thines borders on the perimeter of a public forest.

In the wider area of ​​the property are very important cultural, tourist, and environmental resources, which make it attractive for investment in tourism-leisure activities.
