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.

Things to Do on Holiday in Saronic Islands, Greece

All of the usual activities which are so synonymous with any Greek vacation are available to you on your holidays in the Saronic Islands and there are an amazing number of beaches for you to choose between. Activities available include the likes of family-safe swimming, sailing, water skiing, jet skiing, pleasure boat rides, snorkelling and fishing. Many of the islands offer a great range of facilities to their tourists and these include shopping opportunities and a fantastic nightlife where you can dance into the small hours of the morning.

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.

Weather in Saronic Islands, Greece

For your holidays in the Saronic Islands you can look forward to a typical Mediterranean climate. This means that the climate ranges between very warm and mild throughout the year. 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 apartment is located five minutes from a beach (called Paradise!) and a taverna and also a ten minute walk to the delightful Old Harbour with many tavernas to suit all budgets. The apartment is extremely well equipped and has everything you would need for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

We were met at the port and helped with our luggage. It is only a short distance along the quay, and with very few steps. The apartment is at one end of the little crescent shaped bay of Hydra and has a wonderful open view across the sea to the Peloponnese. Inside it is spacious and comfortable, and decorated in a way that is perfect and gives a special ambience - lovely old wooden furniture, red tiles on the floor, big windows to take in the settingbasic supplies in the kitchen cupboard - but also the convenience of a full size refrigerator and washing machine. And each morning, as we turned our corner towards the port, we were greeted anew by the gorgeous view of the town. We absolutely loved it and felt so at home....a perfect Greek island experience.
