Who we are

  1. We are Irene and Nikos, a married couple with 3 adult daughters, Kelly - 25, Anthoula - 22 and Joanna - 20.
    We own and family operate the Kavos Bay Hotel on the island of Aegina. We have not done a home exchange yet but it sounds like a very good idea. We are able to travel only during the winter months (October to April) since during the summer months we operate our hotel.

    Our exchange partners are welcome to come to our hotel during the months of April, May, June, July, September & October when the hotel is open.

    For more info please visit our official site: www.kavosbay.com

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The island of Aegina, in the middle of the Saronic Gulf, has been at the crossroads of cultures and rival actions for many thousands of years - from the mythical Aiakeans to the second world war.

Aegina is like something out of a movie, picturesque houses, winding alleys, horses wearing brightly coloured tassels and pulling carriages, fertile plains, terraced hill-sides of olive trees and aquamarine water. Luckily, the island is large enough to maintain many places of refuge from the crowds and the intrepid explorer will be well rewarded. Despite its small area (83 square kilometres), it offers great variety and has no reason to feel jealous of other "cosmopolitan" islands.

In ancient times, relations between Aegina and Athens were hardly amicable. The little island made up for its size with courage an initiative, resisting Athenian encroachment at every turn. At pan-Hellenic games, Aeginas' sprinters zoomed past their competitors, and the fleet footed came to Aegina to train.

The island produced the first Greek coins - the silver "toirtoises" which subsequently gained great financial leverage throughout the Greek world.

With the onset of the Persian war in 491 BCE, the Aegean's sided first with Xeroxes' army, to the ire of the besieged Athenians. Nonetheless, at Salamis in 480 BCE - the greatest of all sea battles - they returned to the Greek side and won the praise of the Delphic Oracle as the swiftest navy on the seas.

Island life flourished and Aegina.
