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.
