Irene Giannakopoulos – Greece
President of the Cultural Association and owner of Aegialis Hotel & Spa
Irene Giannakopoulou is from Amorgos and grew up there. Irene’s father was one of the first to build rooms to rent when Amorgos was still totally isolated and he transmitted her their passion for tourism.
After a stay of a few years in America, Irene and her husband decided to go back to their beloved island and to realize their dream: promote the beauty of Amorgos and open a hotel that combines both traditional amorgian architecture and spirit in a simple but yet elegant setting.
Committed into cultural and environmental protection, Irene Giannakopoulos organizes various actions aiming to promote and inform about new practices.
