Danae’s secret is the reason she gave up Athens for the wonderful island of Aegina. Situated on a hill above Vathi, Aegina, it is a splendid 1 bedroom cottage in a quiet neighborhood, offering breathtaking views of the Saronic gulf and all the amenities you need for either a relaxing weekend or an extended stay.

The space
The space
The house is roomy at 40sq.m., and consists of a comfortable living area, with a fully functional kitchen, one bedroom and one bathroom. The bedroom is equipped with a double bed. There are also two couches in the living room, bringing the total sleeping capacity to four guests. An extra baby crib can also be set up upon request.
A spacious veranda with seating arrangements for all is available, from where you can enjoy the spectacular uninterrupted view of the whole Saronic gulf, from the east, right up to the distant mountains of the Peloponnese to the west. Sunbeds are also provided for your sunbathing. At night the myriad lights of Athens in the distance make for an unforgettable sight. An outdoor charcoal barbeque is also available.
The kitchen is fully equipped with coffee maker, fridge, oven, electric cooking plates, dishwasher and all the pans and pots, crockery, cooking utensils and glassware you may need for all your cooking.
The house is safe for children and the 2.000 sq.m. property is gated. Stroll the garden and feel free to pick up fresh figs or lemons from our trees.
The space is sunny and bright, and cooling is provided by a big A/C unit.
There are mesh screens on all the windows to keep the house mosquito-free, and we also provide you with electric mosquito repellants. Free wifi, iron, heating, TV, linen, toiletries, hot water, beach towels, hangers, hairdryer, extra pillows, are also of course included.
Danae Georgiou and Emmanuel, your hosts, live on the first floor, with their extremely friendly dogs and cats, so they are very close by, available to answer any questions or help 24/7
WHILE IN AEGINA
After having explored the town of Aegina and its antiquities, take a taxi, a bus or your rental car to the famous Aghios Nektarios church & monastery, and the ancient temple of Afaia Athina nearby. Continue towards Aghia Marina with its huge sandy beach and multitude of hotels, bars, cafes and restaurants for a full day of swimming, dining and dancing.
On your way back in the evening, be sure to take the road which runs along the northern shore of the island. Enjoy the spectacular views of the Saronic gulf and the myriad lights of Athens and Piraeus simmering in the distance and reflecting on the calm sea in the distance-unless of course you are staying at Danae's, when you can enjoy this wonderful view from the comfort of your veranda every single evening !
You must give this excursion a full day.
Of course, if you prefer, there are guided tours of the island as well.
While in Aegina, you can also visit the small island of Agistri (about 3,5 nautical miles away) for a full day of swimming and exploring, or take a boat to the picturesque Poros island (only about one hour)
Another MUST DO if you are in Aegina in the summer, is to go to the open-air cinema for a movie. Once common in Greece, they have become more and more sparse in the last decades, but you can still find a choice of two or three in the town. Films are first rate and very recent. There is no stereo Dolby Digital 5 channel surround sound, but you sit in the open, every two chairs separated by a small round table, and you can watch the film while drinking your cold coke or orange juice or eating potato crisps, pistachios or even your souvlaki !
Last, but not least, other activities include snorkeling, diving (there is a diving center in Aegina), music and dancing bars (dozens) sailing school for children, sightseeing, bicycling.
Aegina is superbly suited for vacations of families. It is quiet enough for the older members, while having enough activities and nightlife for the younger ones to enjoy themselves.
GETTING TO THE HOUSE
The house is approximately midway between Aegina town, the famous Afaia ancient temple and Aghia Marina sandy beach, (all about 10-15 minutes out), making the location a superb starting point for exploring the whole island.
A car is not necessary, especially if your stay is short, as you can use a taxi which is convenient and cheap (a taxi ride to Aegina costs about 8-10 Euros). However, if you would like to explore, a car is desirable. A rental will set you back around € 20 per day (depending on the season) and Manuel can pre-book it for you. You can park it for free, inside the property.
In any case, Manuel will offer you a complimentary pick-up and drop-off service from (and to) the port.
