BEAUTIFUL THREE BEDROOM HOME NEAR THE PORT

Hydra Island House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful three bedroom home near the port

Stunning 3 bed room traditional house with garden, close to the port. Absolutely no steps to climb, Xelidonia house is just a minute or two from the port of Hydra, on a quiet side street, close to shops and to one of the best tavernas on the island - the world famous 'Xeri Elia'. This is a beautiful home that has been lovingly restored by the owners, and offers very comfortable accommodation for up to six people, plus occasional guests. The house has a very private garden with trees and shrubs, and plenty of space to dine al fresco. The entrance hall - passing through the double front door, one is struck by the cool, serene atmosphere that pervades throughout the house. The lofty ceilings, dark red floor tiles, arches and white walls really exemplifies the taste of the owners, who preserve the house in very much the same style as intended in the 19th century. The dining room & kitchen feature many of the original 19th Century facilities including the original bread oven, etc.

The Loggia: A flight of worn old marble stairs lead from the entrance hall to the loggia. This is the real heart of the house, a magnificent wide space, open on two sides, where the fresh summer breeze sweeps gently through. The red tiled floor and the high, age old wooden ceiling in combination with comfortable furniture make this the ideal place for reading, listening to music or receiving friends for drinks in the afternoon after a long day at the sea. The views from the loggia towards the mountains and the sea are quite spectacular.

At various times of the year, Hydra island in common with many of the Greek islands is host to migratory birds. Apart from the owners family and guests, Xelidonia is also the seasonal home to a family of swallows (Xelidonia in Greek) from which the house takes its name, who have built their nest in a corner below the ceiling of the loggia.

The winter sitting room is cosy and ideal for off season mornings and evenings when you can relax in front of the wood burning, traditional fireplace. There are plenty of books, board games and cards that you are welcome to use during your stay.

Car: not necessary

When you imagine a perfect Greek island Hydra is it.

Narrow cobbled lanes to get lost in. Unexpected chic shops round corners. Quality locally served tavernas. Busy and quiet bars. Sea front cafes. Swimming in crystal clear waters. Goat tracks. Coastal walks. Deserted hills. Pine forests. Deserted bays. Hidden water sports facilities. Friendly locals.

Day trips to other islands: Spetses, Poros, Dokos, Aegina, Agistri. Sunshine, shade and old windmills.

But what gives Hydra it's unique feel is the strict building regulations which keeps everything in traditional harmony and the fact that the only mode of transport is donkey.

There are no roads and no cars or bikes. Everywhere is a short walk or, if you like, a donkey ride away. The traditional way of building and lack of motorised transport keep the pace of life in Hydra as it was 100 years ago.
