Orchard, vineyard and breathtaking sunsets, only 10 minutes from Port of Aigina Peacefully and ideally situated on the outskirts of the village of Kypseli, only a ten-minute drive from the town and port of Aigina, this 4-bedroom property offers stunning views of the sea, sunsets, and nearby islands. Borrowing from the rustic character and tradition of country houses in the south of France, the property makes an ideal 'artist's' house. Designed and built by Greek film and theatre director Stelios Pavlides, its calm tranquility offers the perfect place to finish your novel... or simply melt away the stresses of everyday life. Terraces on both sides of the house maximize sun exposure, while privacy is assured by the surrounding garden, fruit trees, and vineyard .

Terraces on both sides of the house maximize sun exposure, while privacy is assured by the surrounding garden, fruit trees, and vineyard . The front terrace and yard also feature a barbecue and plenty of seating for meals, while the side lot provides parking spaces for 4 cars. Unfortunatelly the palm tree on the front porch seen on the photos has died due to a palm beetle imported with palm trees from Asia for the 2004 Olympics. The ground floor contains four spacious double bedrooms, two at each end of the house; each end also has its own bathroom with bathtub. A large, connected space in-between contains a well-equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room with a large natural fireplace. The basement, which includes a library and TV room, also comfortably sleeps three (ideal for friends and older children). The basement features its own bathroom with shower. The house offers a total occupancy of 8, with double beds in each of the four bedrooms. Fully equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, air-conditioning, fans, toaster, coffee-maker, hair-dryer, some freezer space, fridge, TV, telephone landline (incoming calls only), and Internet connection. Local amenities: 5 minutes by car from the sea, and from an excellent supermarket. 2-minute car drive or 15-minute walk from the village of Kypseli. Hospital, health centre, beaches, tavernas, and shopping all within a 10-minute drive. A note on wildlife: like many places in Greece, the area surrounding the house is home to a number of stray cats who will tend to come investigate when humans are in the house. Please note that we do not allow any of the cats in the area to enter the house, though we will often feed them (away from the doors) when we're there.

House Rules
Pets not allowedKid friendlySmoking allowed
We simply ask that, as this is our home away from home, our guests treat the space with the same care as they would their own home. Courtesies such as turning off lights and air conditioners when leaving the house are greatly appreciated. Note that there are a number of cats in the area around the house, some of which are quite familiar with us and our house. For this reason, travelling with pets is something that you should consider carefully and discuss with us before booking.

Une maison de famille au bout du monde
La maison d’Alexandra a tout de la maison de famille : agréable, confortable, chaleureuse, accueillante et très bien équipée. La vue sur la mer réserve des couchers de soleil magnifiques qui nous ont émerveillés tout au long de notre semaine de vacances à l’heure de l’apéro. Alexandra est très disponible et sympathique. Nous avons passé une excellente semaine et nous recommandons cette maison ... nous y reviendrons avec un très grand plaisir.

A beautifully designed, furnished and equipped house, perfect for our family holiday!
This house - even though only 10-15 minutes by car from Aegina - is in a peaceful, off-the-beaten track location, surrounded by beautiful Mediterranean vegetation and with glorious views of the sunset over the sea. The lay-out allowed our party of 8 to separate out and relax in peace whilst providing our children with wonderful play spaces. Everyone had a brilliant time and we'd love to come back.

Peaceful and homely stay with a 5* view
We were definitely happy that, out of the many available options of holiday properties we had reviewed, we decided on this one. We traveled as a group of 4 adults and 2 young kids, so we needed significantly more than just a place to stay overnight while exploring the island. And we found it, no doubt. The island itself seems a perfect option if you are not that mobile because of the kids. It's just one hour sea trip from Athens, a bit aside from the whirl of traditional tourist routes, and it has it all: a vibrant capital port town, picturesque settlements like Perdika, organized sand beaches and cozy hideaways along the coast, and a good menu of things to do. You can also take a short ferry trip to Poros and other impressive neighboring islands. The house is located in a quiet place on a hill and you just cannot stop contemplating the sea and incredible sunsets. It is well designed with 4 bedrooms, where everyone has a chance for quiet rest, and a large kitchen/studio space. But most of the time we spent outside, sure - there are verandas with benches, tables, hammocks, and a number of other stuff for your relaxation on the both sides of the house, so it's possible to stay in comfort as the sun and the shadows move during the day. To say nothing about the fairly large garden with a variety of fruit that guests are welcome to enjoy. Our only trouble was keeping an eye on that nothing greasy drops on the terracotta floor in the house, which immediately soaks it - that was a bit of a challenge with little ones - and that nothing acidic affects the cooking surface in the kitchen. Well, the both look beautiful though, so you have to sacrifice something) We also made good friends with the cat who lives in the territory - he is perfectly calm and tolerant but may get a bit vindictive if you catch him with your meat steak) All and all, it was a great holiday with all the comfort you could expect - in a piece of paradise! The host, Alexandra, did her best to help us orient ourselves in the new place - you have available all the support and recommendations you need to feel confident and informed. Thank you so much and hope to be back one day!

Thank you Anya, it was a pleasure having you. As for the floor....well that's the "cost" for having a REAL rustic HOME with terra cotta and marble I guess, rather than a practical and maybe not so nice hotel....and thank you for looking after it! We will be happy to see you again.

Paradise exists
It is difficult to write when you know that words would be insufficient to express every pleasure we experienced during our stay in Artist's retreat, which is a retreat in its full meaning. The beauty of the house surpasses the photos they posted. And apart from the beauty, we felt like we were invited to a friend's house. Friendly reception when we arrived, the atmosphere of the house, many wonderful details in it, food and wine waiting to round the feeling of being a part of something unique. There were 8 of us, with three children around 11. No one was in someone's way. Every one of us could find ones place to enjoy and be relaxed. And, also, the house and the porch offer places to gather during long evenings of total enjoyment. The position of the house is very convenient to explore beaches, villages, remains of the past and everything this nice island (not drowned in tourism) could offer. Even when I write this review I could smell mornings in front of the house, in the shadow of the palm tree, while drinking my coffee, and hear those murmurs of the day that fades away. We'll be back, for sure!

About the neighbourhood
The area is very peaceful. We have few neighbours, none of which can see into the front porch. Our property is at the end of a dirt road , which makes it very safe for kids as no cars are driving by. However it is very easy to get to and only a few minutes drive form shops and super markets.
Getting around
You will need a car or a motorcycle...or a lot of resistance to heat if you have a bicycle in the summer.
Access
Car required
