About the property

By the sea, self-catering, independent, large exclusive terrace, easy access

The house is located on the seaside road, on a quiet pebble bay-beach. It consists of the first floor of a two floor villa, it is completely independent, its entrance being at a different road than the second floor. It does not share any space and has exclusive access to the terrace.

It is traditional hydreotic, built in the 19th century and renovated recently. It is located at one of the most privileged areas of the island at the least crowded part of town, offering seclusion, yet proximity to the port and facilities. Its advantageous location offers the beauty of living next to the sea, as well as an easy 10 minute walk from the port, by the main seaside road, without any stairs at all.

Its view at the windmills on the rocky hill, that rises through the ocean, has often been selected by artists as a favorite landscape to capture on canvas, as has been the house itself. Even more, the amazing sunset view is a reason to stay at home in the afternoon.

The house is recently refurbished and decorated by its owners in an antique and island style that matches the affluent character of old Hydra. The house offers a full assortment of facilities, as it has been designed for permanent residence.

Two perfect weeks

  • 5 of 5

I thought twice about reviewing this house because I didn't want to let the secret out! There is absolutely no better location on Hydra. An easy 10 minute seaside walk from the main harbor takes you to this delightful Hydriot home in a quiet neighborhood. The owners are very eager to please their guests and accommodate them in every way possible. The house is clean and comfortable and nicely furnished. It has just about everything you could possibly need (except AC) including wifi which was installed at my request!

Best of all are the views and proximity to swimming in the crystal clear water just steps below the house. I have been back from Hydra for two weeks and already I am ready to return.

Online-Inserat-Angaben sind korrekt , das Haus ist sehr sauber und gepflegt, (nur die Wasserspülung hat ihre eigenen Macken!!!!).

Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist atemberaubend!!!!

Setz Dich in den Liegestuhl, giess Dir einen Ouzo ein und beobachte den ganzen Tag die beladenen Maulesel die nach Kamini traben, die See-Taxis die eilige oder faule Urlauber an die Strände fahren, die abendlichen Lichter der Häuser vom gegenüberliegenden Peloponnes, die kreischenden Möwen,

und manche neidvollen Blicke der vorbeispazierenden Touristen, zieh die Badehose an und steige die 30Treppen hinunter bis zum Meer(wunderschöne kleine Bucht!)..sehr sauber....vergiss den Schnorchel nicht!!!

Abends bist Du in 10 Minuten am Hafen..immer bergab..mit vielen Restaurants...beim Heimweg kannst Du dann bergauf die vielen Kalorien wieder verbrauchen...sehr schöner Weg mit Pflastersteinen, immer am Meer entlang..

Kein Lärm in der Nacht.....kein Lärm am Tag...einfach zum geniessen.....Christine..agapo tin Ydra!!!!!

Car: not necessary

Hydra is the ideal setting for those in search for relaxing holiday in a cosmopolitan setting. It is unique in its history, architectural beauty and natural landscapes. The island settlement has been preserved to the traditional affluent architectural status it had risen to 200 years ago. Cars and motorbikes are not allowed, there are only pedestrian stone roads and all transportation is by donkeys, sea taxis and on foot.

A walk around the harbour, the narrow streets and the beautiful Mediterranean landscape is a rewarding experience by itself, that travels you centuries back in time. There are so many for the traveller to discover among 300 old churches and monasteries, museums and magnificent old mansions.

Beaches are to be found near the settlement at walking distance or you can take a 'sea bus' for a short trip to a beach completely away from civilization. Night life is vivid and usually after hours, with plenty of bars, cafes, very good restaurants and night clubs.
