Warren Buffett, Johnny Depp buy Greek islands

Islands for sale closer to home and for a lot less than you might think


U.S. billionaire investor Warren Buffet and actor Johnny Depp have both purchased their own Greek islands, according to news reports.

Buffet is said to have bought the island of St. Thomas, which covers an area of 1.2 sq km in the Gulf of Egina near Piraeus port, for 15 million euros with a partner. Depp meanwhile reportedly purchased Greece’s Strongylo for 4.2 million euros. The tiny island located in the Aegean Sea spans just 0.2 km.

Last month, it was reported that actors Brad Pitt and wife Angelina Jolie-Pitt were considering snapping Gaia Island in the Ionian Sea.

Money raised from land selloffs could help Greece pay off debt, a condition of its latest EU bailout.
