Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Saronic Islands, Greece, Your Home Away From Home

The archipelago of the Saronic Islands are found very close to the Greek mainland and the capital of the country, Athens. The main islands of this group are Aegina, Angistri, Hydra, Methana, Poros, Salamina and Spetses. By spending your holidays in the Saronic Islands you will be able to enjoy the best of both worlds: the idyllic charm and tranquillity of a beach-based break in Greece; along with the historic attractions of the nation’s capital, just a one hour ferry ride away. What’s more, the self catering villas in the Saronic Islands are very well-equipped to allow you to treat them as a real home-from-home.

Activities available include the likes of family-safe swimming, sailing, water skiing, jet skiing, pleasure boat rides, snorkelling and fishing.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Saronic Islands, Greece

You have a wealth of architecture and history to discover on the different islands that can be found in the Saronic Gulf and these are linked by regular ferry crossings. It is interesting to note how each island is different from the next, with plenty of surprises along the way. Of course, though, you simply must take the time to visit the Greek capital of Athens. It is only an hour’s ferry crossing from Aegina to the port of Piraeus and then a quick drive up to Athens itself where all of the world-famous attractions are waiting for you, such as The Acropolis and The Parthenon, plus more museums than you could ever hope to cram into your time in the city.

Average summer temperatures here should easily reach the high-twenties to low-thirties degrees Celsius. From December until February, expect average values to be around 13 degrees. Rainfall is not significantly high in this part of Greece, with most precipitation falling during the winter months.

Travel to Saronic Islands, Greece

There are small airports located on the Saronic Islands but these will not prove to be of much use if you are travelling from the UK. Instead, it is best to rely on Athens International Airport (ATH) and then take a ferry to the island you will be spending your holiday on. Airlines such as British Airways and easyJet fly from UK departure points such as London Heathrow (LHR), Manchester (MAN), Edinburgh (EDI) and London Gatwick (LGW).

The property had everything we needed including lots of space and great views from the balconies, plus it was clean and very peaceful. The owners, Ilias and Maria, were very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend this property and hope to return.

The beach, which has one of the only sandy areas close to Aegina town, is one minute's walk away at the bottom of the road and the owners provide all the added luxuries - beach towels, chairs, parasol and even children's beach toys. The house is situated in a very peaceful location and for those without a car, it is a good 40/50 minute walk into Aegina town along the coastal road but the views are breathtaking, especially at sunset. There is a slightly shorter walk via the inland road. We took taxis to return to the house at night time (5 Euros) - ask them to take you to (or collect you from) Polisporis, the cafe/bakery round the corner, as this is well known. The cafe sells fresh bread and there is a small co-operative a little further away that has basic groceries and some fresh fruit/veg as well as wine and olive oil from the barrel. The closest Restaurant (Delphini) is good and reasonably priced. It was very quiet when we were there as it was towards the end of the season but they were happy to cook just for us. We found it helpful that Klea, the owner's mother was staying in the upstairs flat. We received friendly advice and support from her (she kindly collected us and took us back to the port at the start and end of our holiday) and she respectfully allowed us to enjoy complete privacy. This is a lovely place to stay on a delightful island.
