Oinousses is a complex of 1 large island named Oinoussa, and 8 smaller islets in the North Aegean Sea. Oinoussa is the only inhabited one. What is significant about this tiny place, is that it is the homeland of a remarkable number of well known shipowners in Greece.

Oinoussa is very quiet during winter. During summer the shipowner mansions and the regular visitors’ villas open their doors to the owners to spend their holidays. The island gets even more lively by a small amount of travelers who choose this place for peaceful holidays away from the crowds. There is only one hotel and a small number of houses to rent. So book in advance!
