This idyllic private island, located close to Athens, boasts a colourful past. It has been owned by the family of the former Keeper of the Royal Privy Purse of the three Kings of Greece since 1958. It has a certain celebrity appeal, as Winston Churchill and the Beatles are among those to have been entertained as guests on this beautiful Greek hideaway.
It is ideally located in the southern gulf of Euboea (Evia) and can be reached easily within 1.5 hours from Athens by car and in just 10 minutes from Athens by helicopter, yet it offers total privacy.
Trinity Island is mostly flat, with a lavish abundance both ornamental and crop vegetation, including about 350 olive trees, pistachio trees, pine and cypress forests and a variety of fruit trees (pomegranate, apricot, peach, almond, fig). Among the ornamental shrubs to be found on the island are oleander, bougainvilla and hibiscus.
The main house was constructed in 1960 and has a large lawn to the west, perfect for outdoor dining and parties. There is also a small house for staff/guests, a private chapel, a Venetian watch tower, as well as a boat house. The buildings are connected to each via roads and paths fringed with blooming plants. The three main roads are 1.1 km in length.
Furthermore, the island also features three sandy beaches and three concrete piers. Electricity is supplied by generators and water is obtained via underwater pipeline from a 700 sqm plot on the mainland opposite the island, which is also included in the sale.
It is a perfect private paradise, which has become a rarity, fully developed and complete with all the necessary documents and permissions from the Greek Government.
