About Jacques Davy

This house belongs to my friend Maya, right on the picture, I am at the center, and his daughter is left. We are on the terrace. I am a painter and friend of Maya and David, her husband, recognized sculptor.

This friendship was born in 1975, during my first trip to Greece, while I got a scholarship to study art. I have since returned regularly to Sfendouri. I just spent 12 days: June 19-July 1, 2016, (see photo).

Jacques Davy purchased this house in 1976

Why Jacques Davy chose Egina

This rental has become necessary to Maya who owns it. her husband, David had died, it affects only a small widow's pension.

This part of Europe, and Greece is for me an important part of my life, and indestructible friendship with David and Maya.

Greece represents for me a kind of emotional second homeland, the first country, after France, where I spent the most time in my life.

I manage to Maya seasonal rental of his house to help him in his life.

What makes this house unique

The sight of this house is a dream view from morning to sunset, in all periods of the year. This is why David, my sculptor friend had built there. I had even helped to build in 1976.

The place is extremely quiet, one can go for long walks in the hills and swimming in clear water with a beautiful seascape.

All the beds are comfortable, the hostess is very welcoming, and can also serve you good food.

Unique place

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house because we were looking for something special, something unusual and inspirational and after all I have to say that we did not make a mistake. Above all, the house is not just a beautiful accomodation, but it´s also an invitation to personal memory of an artistic family, it´s a pulsing museum of both beautiful artworks and authentic everyday objects, sometimes even made by owners themself. Every room in the house provides a different feeling. There is a big airy double bedroom with an access to a balcony and big library, one light single bedroom also with an access to a balcony, one small single bedroom with feeling of a monk's room and one cozy double bed floor in the up corner of a living room. Because we were a group of seven people, we had also one extra bed which we placed on the roofed terrace, so the lucky one had always a chance to stay closer to subtropic land also during the nightime. The house is equiped by everything one would need and there was always present absolutely amazing owner Maya living just a few meters from our entrance doors. She gave us delicious tzatziki and was always kind and helpful when we asked her for help.

The house is quite far from sea, so we were almost always rather going to sea by car, but it's for sure in walking distance. On the other hand, we appreciated a beautiful view from above and closeness to the highest peak of the island, mount Oros, where pilgrims can light a candle and contemplate inside a small chapel and eat together outside at the table while looking at the island from above.

Originally we planed to spend more days on the island and to have there quite intense reading afternoons and evenings with classics, but it ended up that we spend there only six days and we were more into resting, easy talks, cooking, drinking wine, sightseeing, swimming and walks. But that's how it goes sometimes. The place fullfiled us with it's specific energy and atmosphere and we are glad that we had a chance to spend there a week of wonder, even though it was more earthy type of wonder then we originally planned. :)

Magnifique séjour

  • 5 of 5

Mon frère et moi avons passé un superbe séjour dans cette maison près de Sphendori. C'est la partie la plus authentique et sauvage de l'île, avec des chemins de randonnée qui partent de Spendori (notamment vers le mont Oros, plus haut sommet de l'île, où la vue est fantastique). Le port de Perdika vaut également le détour.

Maya Kennedy, la propriétaire (âgée de 80 ans), nous a réservé un accueil chaleureux, nous prodiguant tous les conseils dont nous avions besoin. Elle ne parle pas français, mais très bien anglais. Elle a fait tout ce qui était possible pour que nous nous sentions chez nous (elle loge dans une petite dépendance de la maison).

Notre séjour s'étant déroulé durant les fêtes de pâque, elle nous a invités à passer un dimanche avec ses amis, avec un repas traditionnel (les fameux œufs rouges colorés, et de la chèvre au menu).

La maison vaut le détour, on y trouve de très nombreuses sculptures réalisées par son défunt mari. La terrasse offre une vue magnifique sur la mer.

Louer une voiture ou un scooter (on trouve des loueurs sans problème à l'arrivée au port d'Egine) me paraît indispensable pour séjourner dans cette partie de l'île, située à 25 minutes de la ville d'Egine. Si vous venez au printemps, il faudra penser à prendre quelques vêtements chauds, car même s'il fait très beau la journée, la température baisse la nuit, et la maison est fraîche.

Un grand merci aussi à Jacques Davy et Jeanne Roque qui ont joué les intermédiaires pour la location.

Parmi les lieux que nous avons préférés : Perdika, le mont Oros, le temps d'Aphaia, et Paléochora (avec ses 38 églises). La plage Agia Marina ne vaut pas le détour si vous êtes en recherche d'authenticité (trop touristique et bétonné) ; vous trouverez de jolies plages juste au nord d'Egine, ou encore en bas de Sphendori (Klima beach).

Outre le port de Perdika, celui de Souvala est assez authentique.

Vous trouverez de très nombreux restaurants où déguster d'excellents produits de la mer (en particulier à Perdika To Déka, et à Egine le restaurant situé juste à côté du marché aux poissons). Vaya a moins de charme, mais vous trouverez des restaurants avec les tables directement sur la plage et très au calme. Pensez à déguster le calamar, toujours excellent, en vinaigrette, frit ou farci !

Maya a insisté pour que nous revenions. Nous y réfléchirons !!!

Owner's Response: Je suis enchantée de mes locataires de Pâques, Sébastien et son frère, les premiers que j'accueille dans ma maison. J'ai beaucoup apprécié leur délicatesse, leurs attentions, et me ferai une joie de les voir revenir, avec leur soeur j'espère, dont ils m'ont beaucoup parlé. Après leur départ, j'ai retrouvé une maison impeccable. J'estime avoir eu beaucoup de chance de les rencontrer. Maya.
