Egglezonisi (the island of the English man) is a small islet about an hour drive from Athens, Greece. Although it has some majestic beaches, this island has a dark history. It was rented in the 30's by Peter Tervil, an English Archaeologist. He built a villa, which was the only building on the island. In 1941 Peter died in Egypt and later the villa was flattened by aerial bombardment during World War II. Along with the villa, the bombers destroyed much of the vegetation of the island.

      I would think now that would be an excellent place to take up residence. Peaceful, quiet, great weather, what more could a person ask for?
