Rosy’s Little Village
“The little island of Agistri is just beyond Aegina, only 45 minutes by hydrofoil from Piraeus, but if you know where to go it can be a magical place. Rosy’s is a good example of this, set around a rocky cove studded with swimming platforms. Accommodation is simple but comfortable and welcoming.” – The Guardian
Using Skyscanner to see what’s available is invaluable. At the moment prices are low flying from and returning to Gatwick or Heathrow. It depends what’s easiest for you. Flying from Gatwick on the early flight there is plenty of time to catch the boat to Agistri. If you arrive at Athens airport later than 5pm we strongly advise you leave the day before the retreat begins and stay the night in Athens and come out the next day.
