Irides Luxury Studios and Apartments are located right on the beach, just outside the village of Souvala in Agious, on the north side of Aegina Island (vis-a-vis Athens) in Greece. Irides is like a small hotel-resort situated right next to the sea; you can wake up with the sound of the waves, watch the sunrise above the mainland, and start your day with a lovely walk next to the sea.

Have your breakfast at the poolside and enjoy the sun and sea afterward. There are sunbeds around the pool and on the beach in front, there are also lots of shaded areas and there is always a small breeze to comfort you. Have your drink next to the pool while looking at the fantastic sunset skies in the afternoon.

The studios and apartments are comfortable and have balconies or terraces with sea view. The accommodation at Irides consists of 6 buildings with studios and apartments and one separate bungalow (a total of 15 units). Irides has a saltwater swimming pool that is surrounded by shaded areas.

Next to the swimming pool, you will find the reception and a shaded area where breakfast is served and you can enjoy snacks, a daily dish, and drinks. Here, you can read a book, watch some television, play a game of “tavli”, or you can make use of the free Wi-Fi internet connection. For those who prefer to have dinner at the accommodation, Irides offers one daily dish and salad.

Retreat location

Aegina has been an island of exceeding importance over the ancient and modern times. It was the first capital of the contemporary Greek State. The city of Aegina (where the central port is located) is situated on the west side of the island. It is really picturesque and humming with life all year round. The church of Saint Nicolas, small and picturesque, welcomes visitors as they enter the port.

The Archaeological Site of Kolona (Column), together with the Archaeological Museum, as well as the Museum of Folklore and History of the Municipality of Aegina, will give visitors an insight to the island’s history, life, and art during the ancient and contemporary periods.

The best way to get to know the town is by wandering around the beach and through the narrow streets and alleys where one finds monuments of the era of Kapodistrias (Greece’s first governor), neoclassic buildings, beautiful old houses, as well as many interesting shops, cafés, taverns, and bars for relaxation and entertainment.

At a close distance, you will find a supermarket and a couple of tavernas. Souvala can be reached by foot within 25 minutes or within 3 minutes by car. The bus that stops almost in front of Irides will take you to the village of Vagia or to Souvala and Aegina town.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Please arrange your flight to arrive at Athens International Airport (ATH). Transfers from this airport are not yet included, for more information, please send Purefitness an inquiry for more information.

Arrival by bus

Leaving the arrivals hall, you will find bus X96, which takes you straight to the Port of Piraeus. Every 15 to 20 minutes is a bus leaving during the day and about every half hour at night. The bus stops several times on the way, the Piraeus harbor is about the last stop. The price of the ticket is 5 EUR (at night, the price can be slightly more) and is valid for 24 hours.

You may use this ticket on the bus, trolley bus, or the metro. The trip will take from 60 minutes to 1 1/4 hours depending on the traffic! At the airport, you can buy the ticket at the small ticket office located next to the bus stop. In Piraeus, you can buy the ticket also at the ticket office next to the bus stop.

After you have bought the ticket, you have to put it in the ticket machines on the bus to print a date on it, so have pocket money ready when you buy a ticket, they don’t appreciate paper money very much.
