Interesting. Will British citizens still qualify? I have no idea about our post-Brexit tax status with Greece. Maybe I could use my US citizenship.

Can you combine this offer with going back in time? Mid-1960s, Hydra, but with h&c running water and modern toilet?

Can't see any reason why not.

Bit of a puzzle why the emphasis on Europe in the article, actually. I suppose it's just proximity and that the immigration process is so much easier. The double taxation treaties mentioned aren't connected in any way with EU membership - the one that applies between UK and Greece was struck back in the early 50s by the looks of it - although where the income arises (as opposed to the citizenship of the receiver) is actually what's relevant when it comes to that side of things.
