    The most traditional (and prettiest) Airbnbs in Aegina, Greece

    Aegina is an island that will pleasantly surprise you. Upon setting foot on the island it’s quite easy to observe that, despite being so close to Athens, the busy capital of Greece, the pace of life is completely slower and more relaxed.

    Thanks to receiving mostly local tourism, even for Summer vacations, most shops, tavernas, and cafeterias preserve an almost intact local flavor… visible not just from the menu. Home rentals are by no means different. Houses are mostly traditional and help visitors soak in the unique Greek vibe of the islands.  

    If you’ve already discovered more popular or even crowded islands in Greece, maybe now it’s time to try something different. Aegina is certainly a good place where to start from. So… are you considering a vacation on this small Greek island? Try renting a home instead of booking a hotel if you wish to experience a truly Greek holiday experience!
