EOT, Ministry of Tourism Authorized Licence

The Grande Dame Villa has obtain a licence from the Greek National Tourist Organisation - GNTO - known as EOT in Greek

An EOT licence is a legal necessity to allow a villa owner to rent short term (any period less than 3 months). The Greek tax system is tied in with the EOT licence meaning anyone renting their villa without a licence cannot be paying Greek taxes. It is unlikely that any insurance company would uphold a claim for personal liability on a property being illegally rented without a full EOT.

Getting a full EOT licence is a very long, complicated and expensive process involving inspections of the property, architects plans, a pool operator’s licence, fire and health inspections, examination of tax records etc.

The Grande Dame Villa EOT, Fire inspection and pool operator’s licence details are on display in the villa.
