Our villa is situated within one minute's walk from the beach, in an idyllic location near the house of celebrated author Nikos Kazantzakis. The residence has been designed with every attention to detail, beautifully decorated in a traditional island style, while at the same time offering all the amenities of a comfortable and relaxing home away from home.
The villa has two bedrooms, a spacious kitchen / living-room area and a bathroom. One bedroom has a double bed, the other has two single beds, and they are both equipped with ample wardrobe space. The kitchen features a very large fridge-freezer, full cooker, dishwasher, granite worktops, and a microwave for cooking, as well as some other useful appliances (kettle, cafetière, panini toaster, blender). The living room has two very comfortable sofas, a two-seater and a three-seater, the later of which could be used to sleep a fifth person. The house is air-conditioned and includes Wi-Fi internet access. A cot can be added upon request to accommodate a toddler. You will have access to a private balcony/terrace that can be used for al fresco dining, as well as a beautiful garden. Access to a roof-top barbecue and dining area, with a lovely view of the sea, can also be arranged upon request.
Aegina is an island in the Saronic Gulf, a little bit outside of Athens. The origins of its name can be traced to mythological times, when Aegina, the daughter of the river god Asopus and the nymph Metope, was a mistress of Zeus. It is an island rich in history, spanning many eras and civilisations, from the Antiquity and Byzantine period all the way to Frankish, Venetian and Ottoman rule. Aegina served as the capital of Greece from 1828 to 1829, is rich in culture, and features many historical sites such as museums and the temple of Aphaea, the temple of Hellanios Zeus, the Ioannis Kapodistrias museum, and the monastery of Agios Nectarios.
Being close to Athens (35-90 minutes from the port of Piraeus, depending on the boat), Aegina is an excellent staging point for day-trips and excursions. Day-trips to Athens to visit the Acropolis, museums, and various other historical sites are highly recommended, as are trips to the ancient Theatre of Epidaurus.
