About Sibylle & Nassos

We are a French-Greek couple living permanently in Brussels (Belgium). We have 2 children who have spent their entire childhood in Porto Hydra Village, and still spend happy holidays there.

We are at your disposal for any advise on short trips or tourist and cultural visits around the whole region.

Sibylle & Nassos purchased this house in 2000

Why Sibylle & Nassos chose Ermionida

Porto Hydra Village (located in the Municipality of Kranidi-Ermioni) is a strategic location near the islands Hydra, Spetses and Poros, and with a reasonable proximity to the famous archaeological sites and beautiful beaches.

The house is accessible by car at 2,5 hours from Athens and by boat from the main Piraeus port.

It is ideal for families who would like to spend quiet and relaxing holidays for tourism and culture. It is equally highly appreciated by groups of friends.

Cars and motocycles are forbidden in the holiday village (there is a covered parking space for your car).

A sandy beach is easily accessible (only 150m. away on foot).

You can taste fresh Greek specialities around the area and in the town of Ermioni.

This is a quiet and relaxing place which is not far from other busier places (such as the nearby Hotel Barcelò and the town of Ermioni with its 2 ports).

What makes this house unique

Porto Hydra Village is located in a holiday residence garded by private security.

There are no cars, nor motos in the Village, rendering the place very suitable for children to circulate and play.

There is a large private garden where you can rest, play or eat calmly without being bothered whatsoever.

The beach is easily accessible on foot. You have access to our own umbrella and beach-chairs. The nearby beach-bar however offers free umbrellas and beach-beds only with the purchase of a drink (generally open from May until September).

Schöner Strandurlaub mit viel Kultur

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben Ende Juni 2017 beide Appartments gebucht und 12 tolle Urlaubstage dort verlebt. Die Appartments gruppieren sich um eine gemeinsame Hof-Terrasse mit anschließendem Garten. Der Hof wird durch Bäume und Sträucher, die während unseres Aufenthalts wunderschön geblüht haben, wirkungsvoll beschattet. Ein fester Grill steht im Garten. Wir haben den Außenbereich als Wohn- und Esszimmer genutzt und waren nur zum Schlafen und Kochen in den Appartments. Die Betten sind bequem und gegen die Griechenlandhitze helfen die Innen und auch Außen angebrachten Deckenventilatoren recht wirkungsvoll.

Die Vermieter (Nassos) waren zeitweise vor Ort und haben sich rührend um uns gekümmert. Wirklich nette Leute!

Die Anlage Porto Hydra Village selbst war spärlich belegt und der Strand dementsprechend ruhig. Es standen uns Strandstühle und ein Sonnenschirm zur Verfügung, den wir zugunsten der vorhanden Bäume am Strand als Schattenspender allerdings nicht genutzt haben.

In der Anlage war recht wenig los, unsere Kinder hat es abends daher ins benachbarte Hotel Barcelos gezogen. Wer es mag findet dort ein All-Incl.-Buffet und die übliche Club-Abendunterhaltung.

Ein Mietwagen wird zwingend benötigt, auch um zu den meisten umliegenden Tavernen zu kommen. Im fussläufigen Umfeld der Anlage gab es nur wenig Infrastruktur (Strandbar, Nachbarhotel, eine Taverne). Für Ausflüge zu den nächsten bedeutenden archäologischen Stätten muss man etwa 1 h Fahrtzeit (Epidaurus, Troizen) einplanen. Nach Mykene sind es rund 1,5 h. Weitere Ausflusgtipps sind Hydra (!), Porros oder Nafplio. Ein echter Höhepunkt war die Aufführung einer griechischen Tragödie im antiken Theater von Epidaurus. Wer gut zu Fuss ist sollte in der Schlucht unter der "Teufelsbrücke" bei Troizina ein erfrischendes Bad nehmen.

Der nächste größere Supermarkt/Bäcker/Fischgeschäft befindet sich in Ermioni, wo man auch sehr nett am Hafen sitzen und essen kann. Weitere Tipps zum guten Essen und für Ausflüge gaben uns Nassos und Sibylle.

Une location comme on les aime !

  • 4 of 5

Les deux appartements sont très agréables, en particulier les espaces communs extérieurs qui permettent aisément d'accueillir 2 familles. L'ensemble est très bien équipé, idéalement situé à proximité immédiate de la plage dans un village de vacances sécurisé, arboré (une sorte d'oasis de verdure) et très bien entretenu ! Le village d'Ermioni est très agréable également (restaurants, superette, épiceries et un excellent boucher, important pour les barbecue !). Proximité immédiate d'un bar lounge sur la plage sympa pour prendre un verre le soir et possibilité de profiter de la grande piscine du village vacances voisin. Le village de Thermissia tout proche permet de faire des petites courses et dispose notamment d'un restaurant qui livre à domicile ! Beaucoup d'excursions possibles (ex : ile de Poros, Spetces, Hydra) et des sites qui valent le détour (Epidaure, Mycènes, le canal de Corinthe, La ville de Nauplie). Ne pas manquer une halte Chez Maryvonne, restaurant tenue par une Française tombée amoureuse du coin

Les propriétaires, même s'ils ne vivent pas sur place, sont attentionnés, disponibles et dispensent de précieux conseils pour profiter pleinement des lieux.

Bref ! une bonne adresse pour des vacances reposantes et/ou actives.

Fijne appartementen met een geweldige buitenruimte

  • 4 of 5

De appartementen liggen op een park, maar bieden veel privacy. Wij waren bang dat ze aan de kleine kant zouden zijn, maar we hadden voldoende ruimte met 9 personen! Dit komt met name omdat de buitenruimte groot is en met het mooie weer in Griekenland leef je buiten. Het strand is op korte loopafstand, het zwembad vonden wij iets verder dan gedacht (hier hebben wij eigenlijk geen gebruik van gemaakt, want het strand was perfect!). Het is heerlijk rustig op het park en aan het strand. Schaduw van boompjes, zand/kiezelstrand, de zee is snel diep. Het enige nadeel is dat het park ietwat afgelegen ligt en je hier niet zonder auto kunt. Het dorpje is 2,5 km ver en alle bezienswaardigheden liggen op een behoorlijk grote afstand. Wij hebben hier een heerlijke week gehad!
