Potential Green housing co-op - anyone know about greek coop stuff?

Hi folks, an ex-housemate of mine has found land on Lesvos and has access to cash and wants to set up a small housing co-op there. I'm wondering whether Greek co-op law is conducive to housing co-ops, whether anyone knows any Greek co-operators who can advise or whether anyone has experience of registering a business in one country and then owning property and running that business in another country. ta

Doesn't look like there is a housing co-op specific federal https://www.housinginternational.coop/housing-co-operatives-worldwide/. Worth checking in with Kapa Network https://coopseurope.coop/about-us/our-members

Cath, you could try Lucas Mprechas of the Kapa Network - lmprecha@cc.uoi.gr

I last spoke to him in 2018, but if he's still involved he'll be able to offer some guidance.
