Greece, Thassos, Limenaria ( Nederlandse beschrijving van dit perceel grond en het eiland Thassos treft u hieronder aan (naar beneden scrollen)).
Fantastic allotment (large plot) of over 8000 square meters, slightly sloping with olive vineyards. Located in the periphery of a village with breath taking views over the Aegean Sea, which continuously changes in all colours blue during the day, depending on the sun’s angle.
A building permit on the allotment has not been submitted yet, but in the vicinity on the same slope a modern villa (see photo number 2) has been recently built. The allotment is already connected to the electricity grid and (tap / sweet) water system.
Thasos island is located in the northern Aegean sea approximately 7 km (4 mi) from the northern mainland and 20 kilometres (12 miles) south-east of Kavala, and is of generally rounded shape, without deep bays or significant peninsulas. The terrain is mountainous but not particularly rugged, rising gradually from coast to centre. The highest peak is Ypsario (Ipsario), at 1,205 metres (3,953 feet), somewhat east of centre. Pine forest covers much of the island's eastern slopes.
Historically, the island's population was chiefly engaged in agriculture and stockbreeding, and established villages inland, some of them connected via stairways (known as skalas) to harbors at the shore. The local population gradually migrated towards these shoreline settlements as tourism began to develop as an important source of income. Thus, there are several "paired villages" such as Marion–Skala Maries, with the former inland and the latter on the coast.
The earliest mining on the island has been dated to around 13,000 BC, when paleolithic miners dug a shaft at the site of the modern-era Tzines iron mine for the extraction of limonitic ochre. Mining for base and precious metals started around the 7th century BC with the Phoenicians, followed in the 4th century by the Greeks, then the Romans. These later mines were both open-cast and underground., mostly to exploit the island's numerous karst hosted calamine deposits for their lead and silver. Gold, copper and iron were also found; the Byzantines quarried marble on the island.
In the early 20th century, mining companies exploited the island's Zinc-lead rich calamine ores, with a yield of around 2 million tonnes, and a processing plant at Limenaria produced zinc oxide. Iron ore was mined on a significant scale from 1954 to 1964, with a yield of around 3 million tonnes. Since 1964, surveys have established the existence of a deep-level zinc-lead deposit, but the only mining activity on the island has been marble quarrying.
There are numerous beaches and natural pools all around Thassos.

Griekenland, Thassos, Limenaria.
Fantastische kavel van ruim 8000 m2, licht glooiende olijf boomgaarden. Aan de rand van het dorp met betoverend uitzicht over de Aegeïsche Zee, die afhankelijk van het tijdstip van de dag en het seizoen van mooi blauw tot nog mooier blauw varieert. Bouwvergunning voor de kavel is nog niet aangevraagd, maar vlakbij op dezelfde helling staat een moderne villa (zie foto 2). Het perceel heeft al wel aansluiting op elektriciteit en water.
In het noorden van de Aegëische Zee, niet ver van Kavala (via de ferry naar Limenaria) en de oostkust van Macedonië ligt het eiland Thassos (398 km2). Aleppo ceders, pijnbomen, platanen, olijven, notenbomen, eiken, wilde en gekweekte, struiken en aromatische planten: dit alles vormt een weelderige begroeiing. Het hele eiland is met groen overdekt, de dalen, de kloven, de vlakten, tot op de bergtoppen (1203 m) toe. Het water stroomt overal rijkelijk, vooral in het noorden en oosten. Er zijn veel schilderachtige baaien met mooie stranden. De harmonie van hemel, zee, rotsen, bergen en groene dalen maakt Thassos tot één van de meest betoverende Griekse landschappen. De geschiedenis is overal nog mooi zichtbaar op het eiland en er werd al over het eiland geschreven door de lyrische dichter Archilochus ca. 650 voor Chr.
