The development of the gardens has been an important project for the owners of the Aghia Irini Villas. The last twelve years has seen tremendous progress from mainly local garrigue to lush gardens with exotic plants and native Mediterranean species.
From the native garrigue through the Mediterranean species to the exotic plants the gardens provide a natural habitat for the local widlife -
The development of the gardens is dynamic and many changes will be seen from one year to the next. Down by the sea with its special microclimate there are the exotic species. Aghia Irini Villas boasts one of the largest collections of Plumerias (frangipani) in Greece.
As we move away from the sea we come to an area of native garrigue before arriving at the Mediterranean garden. This area is planted with mainly, but not exclusively, Mediterranean species.
