Hi Stavros again! :)

Definetely number 2!

Because just "Home" does not tell the search engines anything about the content of your webpage.

You should always include the keywords that you want to be found with. The further upfront the keyword in the title tag the more weight it has.

So if you want to be found with the keyword "Lakefront Land" you would even better use this in the title tag:

<title>Lakefront Land in Ioannina | Home</title>

instead of

<title>Home page of Lakefront Land in Ioannina</title>

The title tag is one of the most important things to optimize for SEO.

Makes sense?

Something else,

have created in WordPress a very simple web site about a land for sale in Ioannina Greece. Using Twenty Fifteen theme,

If you coluld have look and recomend any better fiited theme for that purpose and if possible some idea about page layout.

It is better to have one page for 1 site or create a menu with several items(Description,How to Come, Location,Price) which each one(Description etc) to be a diffrent page?

I don't know much about wordpress themes.

For my website I use the Divi Builder by Elegant Themes, because it is just really excellent and easy to use (but is not free).

Because I am totall happy with that theme I did not really go into exploring other wordpress themes.

Page Layout is another thing I am also not very good at. I can code a layout with HTML and CSS if I get a mockup (of how it should look like) but I would not give advice on creating layout... ;-)
