The island of Aegina is truly charming, its wide horizons are suffused with Attic light, where sunshine-filled days are passed in the sea, on the beaches, and enjoying the atmosphere of the lively tavernas, cafés and nightlife.

The port, just four kilometers from the Oikia, is fronted by beautiful neoclassical houses whose balconies overlook the harbour and its vibrant social life. Zorba the Greek was written here by the famous author Katzantzakis who chose Aegina as his home from 1931 to 1946 – contributing to the aura of its intellectual, artistic and cultural life. He wrote, in 1933: "Divine are the days here…".

As well as the attraction of the beaches there are many beautiful walks and interesting places to visit during our times off practice, such as:
*
the temple of Aphaia built at the time of the Parthenon, and some would say, its rival, with its own attractive museum.
*
the charming museum at the ancient site of Colonna.
The Greek Orthodox monastery of "Chrissoleontissa" perched high in the centre of the island.
*
The valley at the foot of Aegina's highest mountain topped with the remains of a sanctuary to Hellanios Zeus and a tiny chapel - with 1,000 year-old olive trees.
*
Agios Nektarios church, the second largest church in the Balkans.

... and many other delights and curiosities which we will be happy to help you discover for yourself.
Oikia Karapanou: A residence from older times
to build for times to come, only an hour by boat from Athens, Oikia Karapanou is a beautiful mansion from the 19th century, surrounded by a huge garden close to the sea.
It is situated in Perivola, 18010 Aegina, Greece

Oikia Karapanou

Oikia, comes from the Greek word which means both "house" and "home". It is above all, a house with a soul. It is somehow the 'essence' of a house, surrounded by an enchanted garden. Nothing in it is formal, nothing is standardised. Oikia Karapanou is not an hotel, neither is it a seminar 'factory'. It is a real house. Simple, spacious, poetic, refined. A place where guests often tell us that they feel as if they have, finally, come home.
The space is organised as follows:

Bedrooms:
The house can host up to 20 people. There are 7 twinbed rooms (one with a double bed), one three-bed room, and one single. If there is a need for extra beds, 2 camp beds can be added. For larger groups, there is space for tents in the garden, and the possibility to rent additional rooms at a nearby guesthouse.
Bathrooms:
There are 5 bathrooms in the house. One of them is ensuite to one of the bedrooms. The other 4 are shared. There are also 2 outdoor showers in the garden.
For work:
The upper floor of the house contains a bright and spacious 40 square-meter hall, surrounded by windows facing in all directions, which leads out onto two big terraces facing east and west. If a larger space is needed, there is a flat outdoor area of 300 square meters in front of the house, shady and totally private. There is also the old 13 meterwide threshing floor, with its beautiful views of the sea and islands.
And for free time:
The living-room (with great-grandmother's piano!); various balconies and terraces; and, of course the spacious and magical garden. The nearest beach is very close, around 300 meters away on foot.
For people staying outside Oikia there is a small participation fee.​
If all beds are booked there is also the possibility of putting up one's tent in the garden​.
For groups above 20 persons, studios can be rented near Oikia for approximately the same price.​37.734612%2C23.455124&spn=0.
