Villa Lange is nestled on a hillside above Aegina town on a piece of land of over 4500m2 with private pool, a magnificent view, and over 30 olive trees, some almond trees and a fig tree. It is a comfortable home for 4 guests (optional for 6 guests) on the Island of Aegina, about 26 km south of Piraeus. Aegina can be reached by ferry ships within an 1hr and 15min or by hydrofoil in about 40min from Piraeus. We are about 7 min away by car or bike from the port of Aegina in a tranquil setting.

The space
The comfort of our home and its setting makes this property unique and contributes to a relaxing holiday experience. We sometimes called it our little island on the island. We are on a hillside 100 m above sea level along the main road between the Port and Town of Aegina and the mountain villages of Tsikides and Parchia Rachi with unmatched views of the Saronic Gulf and the Peloponnese beyond.
The property comprises of about 4700m2 of land on which an olive grove is grown with about 30 olive trees and various others such as almond and lemon. The home is comfortably suitable for up to 4 guests in 2 bedrooms with queen size beds and en-suite bathrooms (main floor and upper floor). If needed, an additional bedroom with en-suite bathroom on the lower floor, sleeping 2, can be made available.
The area - and the island - invites you for shorter and longer nature walks in hilly and mountainous terrain (not recommended in summer). Aegina has a plentitude of well established tavernas both in the mountains, rural areas and at beaches. Beaches are typically smaller, thus no large crowds can gather at any one of them. The island is not frequented by mass tourism. Many of its guests come as individuals and thus blend in with the local and Athenian population.
Spiti Lange has three levels of living space:
Main floor: The entrance to the home is on the main floor. There is the living and dining room, kitchen and one bedroom with en-suite bathroom. in addition there is a spacious terrace with pergola and outdoor dining table.
Upper floor: there is a large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a roof terrace featuring fantastic views over the neighboring island of Angistri, the Saronic Gulf and the mountainous areas of the Peloponnese. We have recently installed a permanent awning on the roof terrace with an outdoor sofa for relaxation ... and "sun-downers".
Lower floor: this can be made available on request at a little surcharge if needed. It has one additional bedroom with attached bathroom and opens to a private flagstone terrace facing west towards our olive grove, Aegina town and the sea. The lower floor also has a separate kitchentte, a fridge and a washing machine for everyone's use.
All rooms have individual aircon/heating systems. Hot water is provided by solar system, which can be switched to electricity in case of inclement weather conditions.
The home comes with all linens and towels (incl bath towels) and all kitchen and dinner utensils and a welcome package.
There is WiFi internet connection and a satellite TV with many international channels in the living room.
Covered parking is available in a carport on the north side of the home.
We will give adequate information for arrival in Athens and timetables for transfer to the island. We will pick you up at the port of Aegina. If you arrive from overseas please arrive during the morning hours till early pm and depart during the afternoon hours to ensure same day arrival and departure to/from the island. For any open question, scheduling, activities and cultural sights, please consult with your host, Gerd.

Where you’ll be

Aegina Island, Greece

All surrounding properties are large in size, therefore there will be little interaction with neighbors. You experience peace and quite surrounding, apart from an occasionally barking dog at night.

For some time now, I have retired from the World Bank in Washington, DC and still live in the area with my wife. This is an update as per early 2020. My parents have lived on the island of Aegina we were frequent visitors and finally built our own home close to my parents. Both have passed away but we are keeping the property for ourselves. I love all outdoor activities, such as swimming, sailing and hiking. Those can be done very conveniently in Aegina. There are areas, where one doesn't see a soul in an hour or more hiking in rural parts of the island. There is classical history: temples and ancient settlements, and byzantine monasteries and many rural chapels. And there are plenty of beaches, all relatively small (thus no big crowds except summer weekends) and tavernas, all of which I love to frequent. Enjoy Aegina - it is not a mass tourism spot.

During your stay

Usually I am not on the island, therefore there will be little interaction in person. I do have adequate arrangements to welcome you and be available in case of any issues.
There is a chance that I may be on the island occupying the neighboring house which is completely independent, but dates could be adjusted depending on your wish for privacy. On the other hand, if there off season, I could lead you to wonderful island walks and excursions (no charge, just for the fun of it).
