Return to perfect tranquility
We very rarely stay at the same place twice but we had to return. Please see my previous comments from two years ago. It hasn't changed except for the better. It is still as clean, friendly and even more peaceful. 350 Euros for complete relaxation.
Unique Quality: On the beach, not near it or with a view of it but actually on the beach.
Directions: On the beach
Enjoy that 'Shirley Valentine' experience
Apologies to anyone who hasn't seen the film, 'Shirley Valentine' but yes there is a rock you can talk to. Yes there is a Taverna with tables right on the beach where you can drink a glass of wine by the sea. Yes there are very friendly waiters, but no, they never offered to kiss our stretch marks :-)
This two year old complex of, clean, air-conditioned apartments is situated directly on the beach and is run by Nick and Maria, two of the friendliest people you would wish to meet. Nick even went so far as to take us and our luggage to the ferry himself when we had difficulty getting a taxi.
There are several tavernas just yards along the beach in either direction and Aegina Town is just an 8 minute taxi ride away. If you want peace, quiet, beautiful scenery and glorious sea to swim in, this is the place to be. This was the highlight of our month long vacation where we sampled hotels and apartments in Italy, Greece, Bavaria and Spain.
At 50 to 60 Euros a night per room it is an absolute bargain.
Unique Quality: Right on the beach. Glorious sea that is shallow for a long way out. Views from the balconies stupendous. Very helpful owners. Just 40 minutes on the fast ferry from Piraeus Athens.
Directions: Just an 8 minute taxi ride along the coast from the ferry port at Aegina Town
