"Our long-term objective is to offer an exceptional experience to our customers throughout Europe. Italy and Greece are emblematic destinations for leisure tourism and play an important role in our European expansion strategy. Greece, in particular, has seen a strong influx of international business and has great potential for economic growth. Zurich, as one of Europe's leading financial centres, is an attractive business location for our corporate clients. We see tremendous opportunities for our business model in both markets, and our ambition is to rapidly expand our offerings in these countries." - Dr Josef Vollmayr, CEO of limehome

We succeed over the long term. We're not just interested in capital cities." - Ricky Bichel, Head of International Expansion at limehome
