KOKKINO KASTRO is a historic estate in the island of Aegina and a very single part of it has been full of memories from 1825 until now.
It is set on a hill at a distance of 800m from the harbor of the town in a rural area of 30.000m2. What makes this place really unique is the transparency of the atmosphere and the dazzling flashes of the sunlight that enhance the little houses and the colors of the majestic bougainvilleas and laurels. The unique mixture of the old and the new, the peaceful coexistence of the rare and exotic with the humble and simple evoke emotions of elation and nostalgia. The little houses are surrounded by towering, cypress trees, olive groves, pistachio trees and centenarian pine trees.
In this superb environment one can swim in the huge swimming pool, play tennis in the tennis court or try cooking in the fully equipped modern kitchen and BBQ. An open air dining room next to the kitchen accommodates 16-18 people and offers the best environment for a pleasant meal.
Liakoto house (1 two – bed and 2 double – bed rooms), the traditional Windmill (4 two-bed rooms), villa Konstantia (1 double – bed room) and villa Andriana (1 double – bed room) can be let as a whole to families or groups of friends from 8 to 18 people.
Do not miss the opportunity to watch the traditional harvesting of pistachios that takes place during the last days of August beginning of September and the harvesting of olives in the beginning of November.
Living in Kokkino Kastro can be a unique experience. Memories of the 19th century come to life in a romantic environment full of modern facilities.
It is the place for relaxation in absolute privacy, close to the town’s amenities and the island’s beaches, at a distance of only 11/2 hours from the centre of Athens.
