A perfect holiday in Fida Maria's house on Hydra

A perfect holiday in Fida Maria's house on Hydra
  • 5 out of 5
Everything went so well, from Fida's efficient and friendly email contact, to being met by Tracy at the port, to arriving at such a beuatiful house. I spent 19 nghts here, partly on my own and partly with friends. The house lends itself to all type of holiday. The kitchen was a delight for my friend who loves to cook, the terrace is a lovely place to eat, but also to relax. And the downstairs rooms are cool in heat of the day. The swimming area close by and the stoney beach at Castello were our favourite place to swim. All in all, a perfect holiday. We will certainly return to Hydra and hopefully to Fida Maria's house.

FIDA'S HOUSE IS A DREAM COME TRUE

FIDA'S HOUSE IS A DREAM COME TRUE
  • 5 out of 5
How can I described the feelings of the day of our arrival at Fida Maria's House ? It was more then perfect... Wonderful. peaceful, beautiful ! From the pictures we saw on Internet, we have dreamed about being in this house and when we finally got there, it was better then in our dreams ! We shared so many happy memories in this house in which we felt welcomed and at home. There is so many artistic and tiny details about it... It's a haven. We wished it was our house forever. We loved so much the terrace where we ate, read, laughed and watched the sunset every night. All the house is gorgeous, but the master bedroom is a jewel of quietness... Neat and white and blue like a boat over the ocean. Close by everything, Fida's house is also very central.Thank you Fida for sharing it with us. Now, we dream of coming back...

A Tangible Dream

  • 5 out of 5
Several pricey restaurants around the island misrepresent themselves as having the best sunset view on Hydraw, but, actually, that distinction belongs to the expansive, comfortably furnished terrace of Fida Maria's House. Our visitors during our month on the island have told us repeatedly that the view alone is worth a trip to Greece, but we get to enjoy its changing hues at all hours of the day or night--looking up from reading or over a glass of wine. The little grocery store a short distance away is restocked with fresh bread and vegetables each morning, and, among the 5 nearby restaurants and tavernas, Pirofani, immediately adjacent to the store, is to us one of the two or three best on the island. Our favorite place to swim is only 10 minutes away, and many mornings we have it all to ourselves. The bustle of Hydra's port is an easy 15-20 minutes walk away, just far enough for the serenity of Kamini to seem a lovely respite. Add to all this the spacious bedroom with its own stunning views, the well appointed kitchen, and the colorful array of art, whimsy, and memorabilia that give the house such a special character, and you have a paradisical combination--far more delightful than photographs can convey or than we could have anticipated before seeing it for ourselves. Fida Maria's House has a deftly rustic charm, quietly situated among houses that, for the most part, appear to belong to year-round residents. It's an obvious labor of love and, as a rental property, an extraordinary find. By all means, grab it if you can.

Owner's Response: It is so satisfying to read this review. When we bought this house about 3 years ago, we fell in love with the view, the thick walls, the wholesome feel of it and its surrounds.It was an adventure to restore it to what it is today. It is wonderful to share this with Summer guests while we have it to ourselves in Winter. Thank you for this and you are more than welcome to come back!!!

Authentic, characterful and beautiful

  • 5 out of 5
This was a perfect location for a much needed chill out. A gorgeous house with everything you could want and more. Extremely homely, lovely artistic touches and different rooms and spaces to spend different parts of the day - most wonderful was the fabulous terrace with stunning views to soak up the sun and sunsets - and stars at night. We loved being able to cook outside of an evening, watch the sun go down and then lounge back and watch the night sky and mass of twinkling stars.
I can imagine the house would be just as atmospheric in the winter months. We felt we were staying in the best, most authentic house on the island! It takes a special touch to create a house like this . . . .
We most certainly hope to come back and writing this review makes me long to be there! But we're lucky enough to be off to another of Fida and Chris's wonderful creations first! Thank you both for opening the doors to your little corners of paradise and relaxation.

What a fabulous holiday we had in this romantic house with so much charm in a perfect setting. Chris & Fida gave us such a warm welcome when they met us at the Hydra port. We loved the coast walk to the house and were so happy we had found this gem of a property to holiday in. We had stayed for 10 days in Spetses before arriving in Hydra for 7 days. I immediately wished we had booked 17 days at Fida Maria's house, it really was pefect in every way. I did enjoy Spetses but Hydra is now my favourite holiday destination.

The large bedroom with the huge bed was a real wow factor, being able to wake each morning to a fabulous view of the sea from the bed was a real treat, something I'm still dreaming about now. I loved the position of the house, it was a short, very enjoyable walk along the coast or through the winding lanes with plenty of shade to Hydra Port, my daughter liked to give the donkey's we passed on the way an apple or two. It was an even shorter walk to Kamini which we also loved, so we were spoilt for choice. All the restaurants we ate in were fantastic, we had no bad experiences, our favourite was Pirofanis in Kamini, favourite beach was Bisti- very clear water, my daughter spent hours snorkelling here. My husband spent hours enjoying a drink,reading or just watching the unhurried pace of life in Hydra in the many lovely cafes at the port, whilst I had a great time pottering around the lovely shops in Hydra and my daughter was happy watching the donkeys, cats and boats in the harbour.

We did plenty of relaxing in the outdoor space at Fida Maria's house, with an I want to stay here forever feeling. We enjoyed making lunch in the kitchen (using fresh aromatic herbs from the large pots on the terrace- I can still smell the basil now). There were so many nice touches that made our stay here truly memorable. Fida & Chris were so helpful & friendly and we would be very lucky to stay in their wonderful home in the future, the thought makes me smile and get's me through a stressful day job. I thought the price we paid to stay here was excellent value for the accomodation. Thank you, Chris & Fida for some very special memories, especially on my Birthday.

a slice of paradise

  • 5 out of 5
Fida Marie’s house, in the village of Kamini on Hydra, is simply lovely in every respect. Wake early in the peaceful bedroom and watch the milky light of dawn gradually strengthen and brighten over the sea or sit on the terrace with an ouzo at the end of the day as the sun slips down the sky. In between there is a choice of spots where the horizontal can be maintained at all times – either on cushion-strewn lounging areas (in the sun or shade) or in the cool interior day bedroom lined with books.

The outdoor kitchen on the terrace is a brilliant addition. Equipped with a sink, a gas barbecue that also doubles as an oven and a large hotplate, this is the place to produce alfresco meals using fresh local produce sourced from nearby mini markets or from Hydra town, a 20 minute walk away.

The interior kitchen has obviously been equipped by someone who loves to cook and who has not stinted in providing a batterie de cuisine that satisfies every need – there is even an electric juicer for fresh orange juice.

Add to that a little snug, with more books and a wood burning stove (cosy for cooler months) and you have a perfect retreat from the world. I could have stayed for ever.

Kamini is a 12 minute walk from the Ferry Port of Hydra or a few minutes by water Taxi. Fida Maria House is 1 minute from a swim spot( see Photos) and 2 minutes walk from the little Kamini Harbor. We are a few minutes walk to 3 excellent tavernas and Mini Markets. A minutes walk up the hill from the house you are in the wilderness which is the area of Avlaiki. Walking away from Hydra Port along the sea path you come to Babas Beach (about 5 minutes away) and further on is the Village of Vlichos.

All around, are walks either through the winding lanes of the well preserved old houses, or up into the mountain along goat and mule tracks amongst the fragrant smelling Flora of the unspoiled Island, Hydra.
