Fodor's Review

Staying at this small bed and breakfast within a neoclassic house from the 1700s feels like a crash course in Greek history: it's easy to imagine what living in Aegina in 1827 was like, when it became the first capital of the newborn nation and shipping minister Admiral Kountouriotis lived in this house; or later, at the beginning of the 1920s, when poet Kostas Varnalis resided here for two years and was visited by author Nikos Kazantzakis; and, today, when the historical

roots of the terracotta-hue house come alive in the breathtaking murals of rooms on the first floor and in select antique furniture carefully placed in the public salons, the shady internal garden, and in the guest rooms. Breakfast, including the mouth-watering orange cake and a delicious cheese pie, is lovingly prepared by Kyria Rena, bubbly, sociable and adored by all guests.
