Aegina is a small paradise next to the capital, and one of the favourite destinations of the Athenians. Just over an hour away from the city centre, it will enchant you with its light, its beaches, its flavours, its vibe and its sunsets. Aegina has been inhabited since the ancient times and everything on the island shows its course through history.
Houses and cobbled streets; the Amphea Temple with its shinning marbles; the blue-green waters and the sandy beaches; the pistachio and pine trees; the bays: everything composes the eclectic character of Aegina. The island that has been loved by authors, sculptors, and painters, and has been looted by pirates and conquered by enemies, will charm you with its natural beauty and rich history. Let’s see some of the Airbnb properties with unique personalities we discovered there.
House Orion: it resembles a rural house in Spain
This house is really unique and is worth visiting at least once. It resembles a rural house in Spain painted green and yellow and it accommodates up to four guests, with their pets. The house’s unique design will charm you at first sight as an outdoors bridge made of metal and wood links the ground floor to the first storey. The pretty veranda, the green kitchen bathed in natural light, the stunning outdoor spaces and the garden with the pistachio trees complete the scene that resembles the set of a romantic European movie.
If you’re looking for calm holidays surrounded by trees and vegetation, choose this lodging that is only 10 minutes away from the sea. It comes with a fully functioning kitchen so that you can cook, a separate study, as well as private parking, and a barbeque in the garden.
Rosa Negra: Within reach of the port
A beautiful house filled with light and colour that will surprise you with its vibe and decoration, that combines vintage and modern elements. This guesthouse is housed in one of the island’s historic buildings, in the centre of the town and just five minutes away from the port.
The house is very comfortable, with a very big living room. It’s equipped with a great hi-fi system and record player, and you can play a record, make a drink at the bar, and relax in one of the sofas. The furniture are wooden works of art, both in the living room and in the bedroom, which is the roomiest one you’ve ever seen. The floors are also wooden, as is the roof, another one of Rosa Negra’s island-y touches.
A Studio with a relaxing view
A lovely house that smells of the sea, filled with unique furniture made of driftwood, decorated in blue shades, with big windows offering a view of the sea with a lot of light, and also with a huge veranda with comfortable sofas, armchairs and sunbeds. The kitchen is large and fully equipped but there’s also a barbeque. The bedroom is spacious and beautifully decorated. This house overlooks the unspoiled Moni island and the Peloponnese, while the beach is walking distance. Pets are welcome at the studio.
A luxurious two-storey villa bathed in light
A recently renovated 153m² villa awaits you on large pine and pistachio tree covered grounds. The two-storey house has three bedrooms and three baths, and can accommodate up to eight people. On the ground floor there is large living room – dining room with a fireplace. The big windows let the light in, the kitchen is fully equipped and includes a dishwasher, while the bedrooms on the top floor are also bright and the bathrooms are spacious. There’s also a crib and baby seat available, private parking and a barbeque grill in the garden.
