About Ilias Potagas

I am a retired engineer for military works, educated in England, Newcastle University and in USA at Florida State University. My wife Angelique is a hand weaving artist and a perfect cook. Due to my profession we have traveled round the world and lived in several countries such as USA, Holland, England, France, Saudi Arabia, Romania and Russia. It is by our choice that we decided to live in a place like Aegina purely, because it is an extraordinary place to live as well as very convenient being so close to Athens (45 minutes by hydrofoil boat).

My hobby is international history and politics. We both enjoy the company of people of other nationalities and exercise the natural Greek hospitality.
