Luxury Villas in Greece on the Market for Bargain Prices

Have you always dreamt of owning your own luxury beachfront villa in Athens, Mykonos, or Santorini, Greece? Well, it looks as if now you can with the current state of the Greek economy and its collapsing currency! Yay!

Everyone wins (besides maybe the people of Greece, of course).
