Holidays on Skorpios

Sounds as though the ex-Onassis island of Skorpios, now owned (leasehold?) by Ekaterina Rybolovleva, is to be developed into a luxury VIP club. According to eKathimerini.

Russian Tycoon Dmitry Rybolovlev Starts €120Μ Project on Skorpios Island

Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev received the “green light” from the Greek State for a multi-million-euro investment project on Skorpios island in the Ionian Sea.

The project that will raise the prestige of nearby Lefkada and the rest of the Ionian islands is estimated to cost €120 million and works will commence at the end of the summer 2018.

According to the Athens Macedonian News Agency, the project will include the construction of 12 or more luxury villas, each with a total area of ​​500 to 1,200 sqm, with a total capacity of 48 beds and other accompanying facilities such as spas, restaurants and a marina.

Sports facilities such as golf, tennis and basketball courts and football fields will also be built on Skorpios.

The aim of the Rybolovlev family is to create the first luxury accommodation complex in Greece, located on a private island that is one of the few around the world.

The island of Skorpios, which was acquired about five years ago from the heir of shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, Athena, has been designated as Natura.  This means that no more than 5 percent of the island can be built, therefore its development takes place in very careful steps, and as the host has stated, in full harmony with the environment.
