Egina Villa Rental Photos and Description

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, granite worktops, electric hobs, 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. Let us know if you are interested and we will of course assist you with making arrangements!

Our Greek Island Summer Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the villa for several weeks and had a wonderful time there. The Aegina Island is where Athenian have summer house and ratio of tourists to inhabitants (local or part timer) seemed to be 20% to 80%. The house and surrounding amenities were accurately described by the owner in the listing. The house and yard was clean and well maintained. The owner met us at the port and lead us to the house and she was very helpful and gracious in providing useful information and answer all our questions. The villa is minutes from the sea and since we'd a car (essential) we could easily venture out to the city/port for dinner and or shopping. We've already recommended this place to few friends since it is good for relaxation and enjoyment of sea and socializing with island inhabitants. There were several very good restaurants and bars and communication is of no problem for English speaking visitors. The transportation to and from Athens is very easy since several ferry companies operate there, with several options for travel to and from mainland. We took couple of trips to northern and western Greece and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Peace for body and mind at a beautiful villa by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This is a very beautiful house very close to the sea in a quiet place not far from the port of Aegina. It's a great opportunity to live like locals in a peaceful and safe neighborhood, not a "touristy" place: buy freshly-baked bread from a friendly grocer, watch the sunset from the terrace, go for a walk along the sea. On the other hand - just five minutes by car and you are in the town of Aegina, full of small cosy tavernas, local designer shops and yachts in the port.

The villa is really close to the sandy beach, less than a minute's walk and there are towels and beach chairs for use. The sea is clean and turquoise, shallow near the shore which is great for kids. The house is vey clean and comfortable, with everything you may need and even more. There is a small garden around the house and an open veranda in the garden to have meals and have rest.

The owner lives in the same house upstairs, she is very kind, discreet and interesting to talk to!

The island has a lot to offer - you may go and see the remains of the medieval town in the mountains, archeological site of Aphea Temple or visit a museum of modern sculpture - full information on what to see and do on the island is available in the house, with the useful telephone numbers and names of shops and tavernas.

Большой красивый дом с садом очень близко от моря - пляж совсем крошечный, практически на дороге, но песчаный, очень чистый и практически безлюдный (купается только несколько местных пенсионеров и мам с детьми). В этом месте нет туристов, что для нас было большим плюсом, очень спокойно, рядом, в шаговой доступности, булочная со свежим хлебом каждое утро и основным набором продуктов.

Владельцы очень предупредительны, дружелюбны, готовы помочь, совсем не мешают. Мы ездили с тремя шумными детьми - и чувствовали себя как дома!

На острове есть, что посмотреть и куда съездить. Очень красивый порт, вкуснейшее домашнее фисташковое мороженое, фисташковые рощи и горы в центре острова, отлично сохранившийся храм Афеи - первый классический храм в Греции.

Peaceful and accessible

  • 5 of 5

Homely accommodation with rooftop views a few minutes walk from a quiet beach. The owner was very welcoming and kind. Very accessible location with the convenience of a small cafe/bakery nearby. We were able to walk to the port town but we also rented a car for part of our stay to explore the island further. Quiet and peaceful at night. Very clean and well equipped. Light and airy space. We really enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful stay in Aegina

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a wonderful week in aegina in this nice villa, really close to the sea (2mn is a maximum ), perfect for a quick swim any time in the day. Warm welcome and discret continuous attention from the owner help us to feel at home during this week. Really convenient for a family (we were 2 adults and a 2year old child), we deeply recommend you to ask Philip about his villa availability !
