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.

Places to visit on holiday in Hydra, Greece

A holiday rental property in Hydra Island is a fantastic base from which to go island hoping. Chartering a yacht and heading around the warm, clear waters of Mediterranean is a beautifully relaxing way to spend a few weeks, many, many miles from home.

Dreamy escape in Hydra

5 of 5
Great spot a short walk from the town centre just up the hill to give beutiful views from the terrace where we sat most evenings having a drink or meal. Nice not being right in the centre and still only a 20-30 min walk to the furthest beaches with a couple only 10mins away

An amazing property - just as described

5 of 5
The pictures can't quite do justice to the delight of waking up each morning with the sound of lapping water from the beach just across the sea front road in front of this beautifully renovated cottage. Anna and her son were standing by on our arrival and there was a huge plate of fresh fruit that lasted the 5 of us most of the week as well as preserves and a bottle of Ouzo! There is a good size shower room, a well equipped kitchenette and an extensive veranda with very effective (charcoal) BBQ. There were beach towels, an airbed and masks and snorkels for use on the beach. Air conditioning worked very well. The amazing thing about the cottage is that it manages to be peaceful and private while only being 5 minutes walk from shops and tavernas in this lively port with catamarans from Athens, lots of tourist yachts and local fishing boats too. We ate out several times and the food was good traditional Greek cuisine. Two things to be aware of - the nearby beaches are pebbles, not soft sand so you'll want water shoes and they're probably not great for younger children. Bedroom 3 comes off Bedroom 2 without a door and there is no door at the top of the stairs leading to Bedroom 2 - if privacy is a big deal to you maybe this isn't the place for you. We went with a daughter and son-in-law and another daughter and all managed fine. If you want a lazy break in beautiful surroundings with all you need within walking distance then this is the place for you. We took day trips to Corinth, Nafplio and Palaia Epidavros all of which are well worth visiting. The Greek people are generally very friendly and even the driving style is much more patient than in France and Italy. One anecdote - we got caught in the rain exploring Ermioni and were invited in to wait for it to stop by a local maths teacher who gave us water to drink and introduced us to his daughter who had just been to the UK for a 2 week summer course. Would we recommend Ermioni and Anna's cottage? DEFINITELY!
