Accès des voyageurs
Spetses island is one of Greece's most cosmopolitan destinations and one of its most beautiful islands,situated in the Saronic Sea, quite close to Athens, while it is easily accessible throughout the year, either by car (a 2,5-3 hours drive from Athens to Kosta, at the Peloponese shoreline just opposite the island, and just a 10 minutes trip by boat or water-taxi from Kosta to Dapia, the island's main port); or by speedboats
( a 1,5-2,5 hour trip, depending on the schedule) leaving from the port of Pireaus.
(URL HIDDEN)Unlike most Aegean islands, it is a "green" island, topped up with pine tree forest, not beaten up by winds with a temperate and smooth climate throughout the year. The sea surrounding the island is calm and not wavy offering an ideal environment for your holidays.
(URL HIDDEN)Spetses is famous for its night life, full of restaurants, fish taverns, bars, music bars and discos, especially the Old harbour area, while at the same time it can offer more isolated and secluded spots where one can enjoy the
beautiful scenery, the sea and his holidays in a different, more quiet way. There are even two summer cinemas (something unique for Europeans) operating during the summer period, for cinema lovers.
(URL HIDDEN)It is a unique island, ideal for kids since the use of cars is forbidden, thus no dangers at all, and only bikes, horse-carriages, motorbikes and scooters are allowed to circulate in the main roadnetwork of the island.
(URL HIDDEN)However, this doesn't meen that there is a lack of access to all the various spots of the island. Access can be supplied by various means: buses servicing the island - bikes,motorbikes and scooters (are rented by numerous Rent-a-Bike shops, provided you have your driving license with you) - picturesque horse carriages- taxis, water taxis, small rented boats..... you name it.
(URL HIDDEN)Also at the Dapia town centre you will be able to discover various luxurious boutique-shops for shopping as well as amenities such as restaurants, fast food stores, super markets, grocery stores, newspaper and tobacco shops, tourist shops, pharmacies, doctors and a public Health centre.
(URL HIDDEN)Sites that you can visit during your stay at Spetses are: the beautiful beaches of Xylokeriza, Agioi Anargyri, Agia Paraskevi, and Zogeria at the back part of the island; the Spetses Museum and the actual house of the 1821 Greek Revolution heroine, Bubulina where you can have a glance at how life (and war) was during the era of the beginning of the 19th century; the Old Harbour area with its Promenade and the fortified villas of the chief captains of the island; the convent of Agioi Pantes and the beautiful church of Agios Nikolaos etc.

EXTRA PROVISION FOR GUESTS:
There is an option for our guests that will make the access to the apartment easier as soon as they arrive at Spetses port. A three-wheel cart with its owner Nikos, can take at least one guest and all the luggage to the apartment, get the luggage into the apartment, show the operation of the house, hand the key to the guest etc.
The fee for this transportation of the luggage is only 10 Euro payable to Nikos.
This extra service is optional but strongly reccomended as you will have direct access to the house as soon as you arrive with no delays,plus the transport of your luggage at a fee equal to that of a taxi, which is the alternative. On the other hand, if you wish to reach the apartment by your own means, or walk to it, then on your arrival at the port you just have to fix a time with Nikos so that he shows you around.
The appartment is rented only for a minimum of 5 days. Prospective interested visitors are kindly requested to take this point under consideration.
This is an apartment that I and my family have put together with love over the years so we expect that you will respect it as if it was your own.
Please show extra care to the furniture and supplies.
Smoking is accepted but we trust you to be responsible and ventilate regularly the apartment or use the terrace when the weather is good enough.
We'd appreciate if you'd throw garbage at the designated green garbage containers of the settlement and wash your dishes before leaving.
It is of utmost importance that wc litter and paper are not thrown in the basin, but in the special bucket next to it, as blocking of the drainage system will follow.
As tap water is not always drinkable, we always leave for the guests 6 bottles of fresh water for their first days, which they are kindly requested to replace for the next guests to come.
Tenants are expected to leave the apartment in a proper and tidy condition.
I am a 55 years old agronomist in profession that loves Spetses island, enjoys swimming and beach volley, always keen for a tsipouro or ouzo at the beach or inhouse, and a cinema and book reading fan.
