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.
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.
