Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson Buy Second Summer Home in Greece

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson bought a second summer home in Greece, and specifically on Patmos island, according to Greek magazine Loipon.

It is known that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson love Greece and in the past few years they visit every summer. After all, Wilson is of Greek descent, so it was natural that when the couple first landed on Antiparos in the summer of 1999 it was love at first sight.

After three years, and thanks to an invitation by their friend, Marianna Latsi, they chose Greece and Antiparos again for a few days’ vacation. In 2004, however, they decided to make it their second home and so they bought a plot between Glyfa and Chora, where they built a summer home based on the island’s architectural style.

Ever since, the couple visit Greece every summer for a few days of sea. sun and relaxation.

According to the magazine report, Hanks and Wilson fell in love with another Greek island. In the past four years they visited Patmos in the Dodecanese and this year they decided to buy a villa on the island, and specifically in the Skala area.

It is a stone building, based, again, on the architectural style Dodecanese,with a large terrace overlooking the sea. The magazine says that the couple were enchanted by the view.

According to the report, one of the great advantages of the seaside villa — that was also a  decisive factor in the purchase — is a nearby heliport, as there is no airport on the island and the only means of air transport is by helicopter.
