Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Hydra Island - The Courtyard House Hydra

Sleeps 8

The Courtyard House is an 18th-century stone house in a peaceful but central part of Hydra town. It has the rare advantage of being only a 3 min walk (without steps) from the lovely harbour where all the cafes and shops are.

The house has a large secluded courtyard with a lemon tree. This pretty courtyard is surrounded by wisteria and jasmine, an ideal place for a tranquil breakfast.

With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (1 with a bath tub, 2 with showers), the house comfortably sleeps eight. However, there is also a sofa bed in one of the sitting rooms for 2 extra guests. Travel cot also available.

Decorated in a traditional style, the house has kept its original character, while at the same time has all the comforts of clean, modern living. The kitchen and bathrooms have been renovated in 2010. There are 2 living rooms, a large kitchen, a master bedroom and bathroom and 2 guest bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. All the rooms have lovely high wooden ceilings and wooden floorboards.

More about the house: On the first floor, the master bedroom has a double bed and a single bed and use of the main bathroom with bath tub. The master bedroom opens out onto a pretty secluded terrace where one can have quiet cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine surrounded by the smell of jasmine.

The other large bedroom on this level has a double bed and its own balcony. It also has its own en suite bathroom.

The third bedroom is on the ground floor. It has a double bed and a single bed and it also has an en suite bathroom.

The kitchen is large with a family breakfast table and is fully equipped with a toaster, kettle, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, cutlery and crockery, etc.

Some of the comforts of the Courtyard House include: a DVD player, a fully-equipped kitchen, a dishwasher, a washing machine, air-conditioning, proximity to the harbour and weekly maid service.

And finally : Hydra is a treasured getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. The Courtyard House is a safe haven for little ones, as is Hydra itself. It is a very easy picturesque walk to the harbour without any steps and the lack of cars and mopeds make Hydra an ideal destination.

Visitors to the house will be met at the port and shown to the house. Although you will have complete privacy during your stay, assistance or advice will only be a phone call away.

We stock the house with an initial supply of bottled water, juice, milk, coffee and tea upon arrival. We also provide a weekly maid service as part of the rental fee. More frequent service can be organised for an additional fee.

Heaven in Hydra

  • 5 of 5

Hydra is a very special place and we loved The Courtyard House. Spacious, tastefully decorated, very well equipped, just perfect in every detail. And the charming courtyard provided peace and privacy.

Wish we could have stayed longer.

WOW!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental experience was perfect! Communication with the owner prior to arrival, being met at the ferry and then the short walk to this wonderful and ultra charming house. It was not easy to leave after our 4 night stay. We should have stayed longer

A magical place

  • 5 of 5

Shutting the courtyard door as you enter from the small street outside feels like entering another world – the peace and quiet, the scent of jasmine and wisteria, all contributed towards a deeply relaxing week here.

The house is immaculately decorated throughout, but also comfortable and practical. The island of Hydra itself was perfect – without cars and slow paced ,yet chic and great for people watching at the same time.

My wife and I enjoyed some lovely costal walks, and some great meals in the restaurants around the harbour, but a highlight was cooking locally bought food in the well equipped kitchen and eating in the courtyard in the evening. Would definitely go back!

Great for families of all ages

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely, authentic Hydriot house early last summer and would have no hesitation in recommending it. The interior has been sympathetically restored and the decoration is immaculate with new bathrooms and kitchens. All beautifully clean and fresh and a charming atmosphere. Very private - feels just like your own house. Loved the pretty, walled 'secret garden' where you can eat breakfast or retreat from the heat of the day. Great kitchen and tv if you feel like staying in. The house worked very well for a party which included my teenage children who had a great time exploring the island (very safe!) and my elderly parents who were thrilled to be able to walk to the shops and restaurants with ease (there is no long climb up the hill - an important consideration!) An easly distance from Athens yet feels a world away! Would love to go back some day!

Hydra
Car: not necessary

Hydra is one of Greece's most beautiful and unspoilt islands. There are no cars, motorbikes or bicycles, donkeys and boats are the only modes of transport. The island is a typical Greek island but is different in that strict preservation laws have ensured that all the old buildings have been beautifully preserved. There are no modern buildings. Just beautiful views, pretty cobbled streets, traditional whitewashed houses with colourful doors, a pretty harbour with tasteful, cosmopolitan shops, cafes and tavernas, pebble beaches, museums and friendly people. One can take pine-scented seaside walks from Hydra town to the nearby village of Kamini. Visitors can also take a day trip to the nearby islands of Aegina, Poros and Spetses. It is close to Athens and therefore easy to get to.

Hydra is popular with artists, writers and wealthy Athenians, but it also preserves a traditional way of life that is becoming increasingly hard to find on other Greek islands.
