Overview

Greece Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa in Aegina, Greek Islands - Spacious Grounds, Elegant Central Courtyard

The property faces the sea with fine views of the Saronic Bay and the small island of Aggistri with the Peloponnese in the distance. Sipping ouzo on the large shady veranda, lounging on cushions in the central courtyard, or swimming lengths in the salt water pool, you can feast your eyes on the intense blue of the Mediterranean, traversed occasionally by picturesque fishing or sailing boats. The villa is arranged around a central courtyard, and combines traditional neo-classical elegance with beautiful modern design. The main building houses a good sized living room and kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms are distributed in the other two buildings. The accommodation is high quality, with marble floors and vaulted wooden ceilings. All the rooms have powerful ceiling fans. Furnishings are simple. There is space for parking in the garden which is large, full of trees and flowers, and gated.

About Marie Woods

We live and work mainly in London but have many connections to Aegina, and love to visit whenever we can.

Marie Woods purchased this villa in 2000

Why Marie Woods chose Greece

The island is lively throughout the year and has a great tradition of artistic and cultural life. There is a classical music festival in the summer. It is long established as a working community, with olive and pistachio harvests. There are wonderful walks and tavernas. The people are friendly and not overstretched by tourism.

What makes this villa unique

We aimed to create a house with space and elegance. It has a meditative air with many quiet corners, and yet is close to all the amenities and pleasures of a Greek island

A heaven by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely one of our favourite places. We have been several times, with family and friends, and each time make more memories to cherish. Sunny meals on the terrace, (very well equipped kitchen) - fresh fish from the market along the road, exploring the island with its ancient temples and hidden coves..and very comfy beds!

The villa is spacious, relaxed and flexible, with the sea right across the road. All in all, a terrific place for a group holiday, with both privacy and space to all be together.

We love it, and can't wait to return.

Most wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

One of the best holidays we've had, and a perfect place to stay as a group of family and friends. We were a mixed group with different people coming and going over a couple of weeks. The set-up with separate units round a lovely shaded courtyard meant that we all had privacy and also a place to congregate (though most people preferred to sit on the verandah overlooking the sea). The photos actually do not do the property justice at all - it is amazing! The pool is bigger than it looks in the photos, and surrounded by pistachio trees. We prefer always to swim in the sea, but it's a great place to cool off and the children loved it.

Otherwise, it was very clean and just as advertised, and the housekeeper is charming and helpful. There is an excellent restaurant a few steps down the coast (called Manitas), and then loads more a short journey into the port.

I would definitely recommend and will also be going again soon.

Fantastic villa in Aegina

  • 5 of 5

We were all our family, 3 generations. We loved the complex, the separate living spaces, garden, balconies, good swimming pool and the sea just across the road. The view is beautiful. Aegina is lovely, it was not the first time on the island but we discovered new places. We managed to see a play at the Epidaurus festival (transportation arranged from Aegina). Vasili, the care taker of the house was very helpful. Everything was in perfect condition and very comfortable. The only thing missing was WIFI

Perfect

  • 4 of 5

We hired this villa as a group of friends but it would suit families alike.

It is secluded and has a wonderful pool, deeper than most too, so kids should not be left unattended. It has sunny areas, shady areas and a most wonderful courtyard where to gather for sun-downers! It is 20 walk to the main town and 3 minutes to a fabulous taverna. The island, although not the prettiest, is so very Greek and does not pander to the Brits, thanks heavens! We just loved it and it was probably one of the most relaxing holidays I have spent. Also we did not need a car ,cabs worked out cheaper.

Map

Coast/Beach:

The sea is 20 metres to the front of the property. It is possible to swim from there if you wear plastic shoes to protect your feet from the rocks which can be sharp. There are sandy beaches to the right and left within 20 minutes walk. There are many other places to swim on the island (shingle, pebble, sand and flat rocks) just a short drive away. The small island of Aggistri has a cresent shaped sandy beach and a pebble beach frequented by nudists.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Athens. To get to Aegina, you need to get a bus, taxi or underground to Piraeus which is Athens main port. From there, there are usually hourly boats to Aegina. The hydrofoil takes 3/4 hour, the ferry 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 hours. A taxi or the local free bus can get you to the house in minutes. It takes 20minutes to walk. Although it is quite possible to manage without a car, and to use buses and the occasional taxi to explore the island, a car gives you greater flexibility.

Distances:

The lively port of Aegina, with its famous fish market, smart shops and bars, tavernas, churches and the ancient site of Colonna is just 20 minutes walk from the house. The beautiful temple of Aphaia, the magical abandoned village of Paleochora and picturesque fishing village of Perdika are all within 20 minutes drive. Athens with its abundance of sites and museums and Epidavros with its amphitheatre staging performances throughout the summer are easy day trips.

Further Details:

The island's main supermarket is 20 minutes walk away on this side of Aegina port. There are several banks in the port and more than one cinema. There is a very pretty open air cinema a quarter of an hour's walk from the house. Also a very cheap internet cafe. The local taverna is excellent, just 5 minutes walk away at Faros, overlooking the sea. There is also a water park just minutes away which also serves meals. You can take boat trips from Aegina port and Perdika to the small islands nearby.
