Dutch royals buy Greek holiday house

Crown prince Willem-Alexander have bought a €4.5m holiday house on the Greek coast, the Volkskrant reported on Monday.

The paper says the villa complex near Kranidi, with private harbour and beach, was bought from German photographer Manfred Rieker. The state information service RVD has confirmed the sale.
Actor Sean Connery and Russian premier Vladimir Putin are said to have holiday homes in the neighbourhood.
The royal couple were forced to sell their first holiday home on a luxury complex in Mozambique following a wave of negative publicity about the project, including claims of corruption, environmental damage and a lack of benefits for the local population.
