The island of Paros since 1980 gathers the special interest of native and foreign investors from Germany, England and the Usa. They invest in old Cycladic houses needing repair or in lands to construct detached houses.
The natural beauty of the landscape, the mild ground morphology, the traditional villages with their architecture and the warmth of local residents attracted the first investors. In the 2000s the sales concerned primarily the purchase of lands and then the construction of houses or residential complexes or hotel units. At the same time and due to the increasing demand, the construction activity is launched at very high levels in the island.
