An interesting article in the Telegraph. It seems that Portugal will allow Brits to stay there for 180 days after the transition period, rather than the Schengen 90 / 180 days rule. Also various groups (including one in Greece) are campaigning for this.

Given that the UK will allow EU citizens to remain in the UK for 180 days, and Portugal's consession, perhaps there is a glimmer of hope that Greece will allow this to happen ?

Also, it seems Spain is considering the 180 day option.

“Most EU countries have already confirmed they will allow UK nationals to enter and remain for up to 90 days without a tourist visa. In Portugal it is 180 days, and Spain looks to be following suit”

Another possibility is to apply for a long stay visa https://visaguide.world/europe/greece-visa/long-stay-visa-residence-permit/

If you read the categories under which a person can be granted a long stay visa none of them apply to people wanting to visit a holiday home for more than 90 days. They apply to "spouse and children under 18 who want to reunite with a Greek resident", "someone who wants to work in Greece" and "someone wishing to engage in education related activities".
