Other things to note

The Best of Spetses
by Conde Nast Traveller...
This little island has always had an air of quiet glamour. And nothing has changed - all that's different are the beautifully boho hotels and a fresh, Greek-isle twist on the pop-up culture, says Julian Allason
The fading signatures in the guest book of the Poseidonion Grand Hotel read like a roll call of 1960s glamour: Elizabeth Taylor, Bobby Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Ingrid Bergman. Now, like the century-old hotel itself, the island of Spetses has undergone a discreet refresh, regaining its lustre as a playground for smart Athenians and the global jet-ski set.
Spetses is only a scenic two-hour voyage by hydrofoil from the port of Piraeus, or a two-and-a-half hour drive from Athens International Airport along lovely corniche roads. But that hire car will have to stay on the mainland, as the four-mile-long island remains a 19th-century outpost, powered only by horse-drawn carriages and wooden caiques. Surprisingly little has changed since the flag of revolt was raised against Ottoman rule outside the church of Agios Nikolaos on 3 April 1821. After that things went a bit quiet, the Spetsiots being content to commemorate the glory of Laskarina Bouboulina, the world's first female admiral. Her mansion ((URL HIDDEN) is largely unaltered. They still hand-build ships here. Afroessa, the lateen-rigged caique of King Constantine of the Helenes, is often at anchor, especially during the Spetses Classic Yacht Race ((URL HIDDEN) in June, when 1930s J Class and vintage vessels compete. 'It's yachtie heaven with bikini bodies,' says a seafaring friend. GTO(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

Great place and excellent host. Did not get to meet him, but George was beyond helpful and one of his associates helped us get to the property. Clean space, large terrace and great pool. And while the location is scenic and beautiful be warned that you need comfortable shoes bc it's at the top of a steep hill about a 10-15min walk from port and cabs are very limited. Also, drop a location pin when you get there because official addresses at not a thing in Spetses so finding your way home can be a challenge if not properly prepared. But once you do make it up that hill- you will have a fabulous time!

George made us feel very welcome: he even bought a cafetiere, which the house did not have up to that point; he also left coffee and sugar for us, which made all the difference to our morning routine! Thank you, George. I was met at the agreed point and was taken, at the back of a motorcycle, right up to the house: 5 mins on the bike, 10to 12 minutes walk from the port. It is a lovely and spacious house, although we would have preferred an upper floor rather than the ground floor.

Nous avons été accueillis à notre arrivée au port par un ami de George, notre installation s'est très bien passée et tout à été fait pour que nous passions un bon séjour. L'endroit est calme, sur les hauteurs du village, à 15 min à pied du port (ou moins de 5 min en scooter).
