Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Hydra, Greece your home away from home

Sitting between the islands of Poros and Spetses in the Argo-Saronic archipelago of Greece is the beautiful Hydra Island, which is hugely popular with domestic tourists. The incredible beauty and stunning red roofed villages are wonderfully easy on the eye, with no motorised vehicles allowed, nothing can break the peace and quiet. Known as an artists retreat, Hydra villas are very wonderfully comfortable and extremely fashionable, yet manage to retain the authentic character and magical beauty of the island in tact.

Things to do in Hydra, Greece

Hydra Island is kept blissfully peaceful, relaxing and untouched due to the blanket ban on motorised vehicles. Donkey rides are not simply for the benefit of the few discerning tourists that arrive on the island, but an essential part of life from a Hydra villa. Tradition still lives on strong here, and daily lives have not been influenced by the slow increase of foreign tourists finding quiet, self catering Hydra Island accommodation for their holidays. The great role played by the island in the Greek Revolution has also not been forgotten by the inhabitants.

The beaches that surround Hydra are mainly rocky stretches, with tiny pebble stretches from which to swim or launch a boat. The beaches are not the huge sandy expanses common on many Greek islands, but are wonderfully picturesque nonetheless. Water sports are of the highest quality however, and there are plenty of opportunities to go sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing or scuba diving. Bisti Bay, is the best place to head from a Hydra rental for water sports, and the bay is also the beat snorkelling and kayaking location.

Hydra celebrates many festivals throughout the year, which are fantastic fun to get involved with. The religious festivals are celebrated with aplomb especially Easter and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in August. The historic Miaoulia Festival, which is marked with feasts, dances and a long night of partying, and the Summer Cultural Festival in the middle of July are both magnificent times to be staying in a Hydra accommodation. There are also a great number of art exhibitions throughout the year.

                                                              We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Courtyard House which was perfect in every respect. Very conveniently located - close but still far enough from the buzz of the port. Although located within a densely built village it still felt secluded and private. Equipped with everything that we needed for a comfortable stay - the children loved the game & DVD selection and enjoyed playing in the private courtyard. There is a very nice collection of books available to the visitors, including maps, hiking trails and information on the history and architecture of the island which was wonderful to browse in the warm afternoons out in the courtyard, where the only thing breaking the silence was the sound of swallows. The house was immaculately clean and thoughtfully decorated with respect to the local interior design. The bedrooms had access to private terraces and allowed the fresh air and the first warm April sun rays to light up the space and our hearts! We could not have asked for more. Many thanks!

                                                              Wundervoller Ort mit allem Komfort

                                                              Ein wundervoller Ort um in kürzester Zeit dem Alltag entfliehen zu können. Mit dem ersten Schritt von der Fähre auf die Insel hat sich ein sehr entspanntes Urlaubsgefühl eingestellt. Dies ist zu einem Großteil der Gastfreundschaft von Trevor, dem Eigentümer der Villen, zu verdanken. Er hat uns von der ersten Kontaktaufnahme an unaufdringlich mit essentiellen Informationen zu den Villen der Insel bzw. zur An- und Abreise versorgt, uns auch am Hafen abholt und nach einer Einladung in einem der Lokale am Hafen mit einem Wasser-Taxi zum Haus gebracht. Die Villa selbst, in unserem Fall Pearl, ist hochwertig ausgestattet und bis ins letzte Detail höchst geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Am Abend ist es mit Blick auf's Meer, einem Glas Wein, der hinter dem Peloponnes untergehenden Sonne in der Sitzgruppe vor dem Haus so gemütlich, dass es einem schwerfällt aufzustehen um in einem der Lokale im Ort oder in der Stadt Essen zu gehen. Alles in Allem ein Urlaub, der unsere nicht geringen Erwartungen an die Insel, die Villa und die Gastfreundschaft in allen Punkten übertroffen hat.
