The Grapevine House

It’s all about the experience, the memories, the dreams.

Welcome to The Grapevine House in Aegina!

The property has 2 houses, the main house and the guest house. It is situated on the periphery of the port / town of Aegina, in an old orchard with truly old vines, some lemon, fig and pomegranate trees as well as many flowers, on a plot of land with about 50 pistachio trees and 14 olive trees.

It is a place to share, to inspire, to experience in many different ways, all year round. Spending time in the Grapevine House, you will discover the island of Aegina in a slightly different light, meet some of its inhabitants and take part in as many projects and activities relating to the art of crafts as you wish.

Both houses, that is yours and ours, share the Orchard: its many trees, its patios, its external oven. There is privacy, there is also sharing. Sharing of a meal, sharing of a workshop, for we love to cook and eat together, and we also love to share our knowledge through workshops and seminars that we organise. You will be able to enjoy many different crafts and activities: from making clay pots to following the process of olive picking from beginning to end; learning how to make handmade soap; letting go of the fear of the blank page by taking part in a creative writing workshop; planning which trails to embark on, enjoying an art show in the grounds and around town… The list of activities is as long as you want it to be.


The Grapevine House

The Grapevine house is about 1.5 km from the port and town of Aegina. You can easily walk to the centre, its shops, bars and restaurants. If you come with a car or decide to rent one, you can park it in the property.

The house features a double bedroom with a painted ceiling, a converted cellar that can sleep two additional guests, as long as they can duck to get in. The living area is spacious and bright, with a dining table, two comfortable wicker armchairs, and it features a wooden olive press embedded in the wall. The kitchen is small but fully equipped with everything you need to make tea, coffee and prepare delicious meals. The bathroom, which is accessible through the kitchen, is also small but has all you need.


The house also has a courtyard and shared access to garden and the sitting areas as well as the use of a hammock.

Through the Grapevine House has many different corners, inside and outdoors, to choose from in order to relax, depending on the time of day.

It is ideal for couples with or without kids, for up to 4 friends travelling together, or a solo traveller.

The house, known as Through the Grapevine House, has a remarkable history. It was built in the late 19th century and belonged to the great-grandfather of the current landlord. Interestingly, it is believed that Saint Nectarios of Aegina, the island's patron saint and renowned healer, stayed in this very house during his initial visit in the early 20th century. The presence of such a revered figure adds a spiritual and sacred ambiance to the property.

In the past, bathrooms and kitchens were separate from the main house, a common practice during that era. This explains their small size, as they were incorporated into the main structure quite a bit later. These unique historical touches serve as a reminder of the evolution of living spaces over time.

As you explore the house, you'll notice a mix of furniture that tells its own story. Some pieces have been cherished and passed down through generations, while others have been lovingly restored by the current owners. The eclectic blend of furnishings adds a sense of personal touch and showcases the owners' dedication to preserving the house's character and history.

Embrace the beauty of this guest house, where every corner holds a piece of the past. Immerse yourself in the tranquil atmosphere, relish the painted ceiling, admire the old olive press, and appreciate the connection to the island's spiritual heritage. Your stay here promises a truly memorable experience, whether your come in the summer or any other time of the year.
