Two hours by ferry from Athens, the Mediterranean sea island of Spetses is a place of exceptional natural beauty. Spetses, or “Pine-Island” as it translates, exudes elegance with Venetian mansions and neo-classical architecture. It’s been an inspiration for many novels, including The Magus by John Fowles and Unexpected Journey by Catherine Lind, and more recently provided the backdrop for Netflix the Lost Daughter.

Immediately you will be struck by Spetses’ exceptional natural beauty. Still, the island boasts enormous historical significance, not only for Greece but all of Europe, with archaeological discoveries dating as far back as 23000 BC. The 18th century saw trade flourish leading to economic development on the island, making it centre stage in the revolt against the Turkish occupation. 


Beautiful gardens, surrounded by olive groves and pine forests, encompass Anargyrios & Korgialenios School of Spetses.   The school is on the outskirts of the small, safe harbour town of Spetses, giving you lots to explore in your free time.
