Looking for an authentic Greek experience? The fishing village of Souvala, just nine kilometres (5.6mi) from the port of Aegina, is home to the second ferry port on the island and is a popular holiday destination with people from the mainland, meaning it has a more local vibe than many of the other towns. This complex of 15 comfortable apartments boasts expansive views of the Saronic Gulf, and each apartment has a balcony – perfect for watching the sun set over the ocean. Meanwhile, the hotel’s bar-restaurant spills out into a pretty courtyard with a waterfall and rock garden, and serves up local Greek cuisine. Plus, guests have access to a pool, sauna and on-site parking.

This family-run hotel in Perdika, a traditional fishing village on the south coast of the island, was first built in 1992 and later renovated in 2003. The 34 light-filled rooms feature decorative touches, such as patterned tile walls and contemporary murals, and they overlook either the hotel pool or the surrounding mountains. The family also runs the nearby Nontas fish tavern, which serves local seafood – think cuttlefish in wine sauce and octopus with barley pasta. The specialty is tiganosoupa (fried soup), a traditional dish from Aegina featuring fresh fish, potatoes and courgettes with secret herbs and spices.
