We dedicate this page to the memory of Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) the celebrated and much loved songwriter, poet and novelist who was also a lover of Greece and of the island of Hydra of the Saronic Islands and spent a good number of years in his house there along with the love of his life and his muse Marianne Ihlen . So Long Leonard!
Aegina, Agkistri, Spetses, Hydra, Poros, Salamina and the peninsula of Methana form the island complex of the Saronic Gulf in southern Greece. Scattered all over the Saronic Gulf and steeped in ancient mythology, these islands are small heavens in close proximity to Athens. Daily ferry connection from the port of Piraeus makes them a lovely, easily accessible all-year-round destination for the Athenians, and not only. Visitors here will enjoy natural beauty, historical treasures, unique architecture, and glamorous, yet romantic atmosphere.
