Overview

Hydra Island Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bathroom, sleeps 2

A sunny bohemian chic studio apartment in the very heart of Hydra island town offering stunning views and tranquility whilst enjoying it's own privacy. The apartment is ideally laid out with more living area outside than inside. A romantic hideaway at it's best with kitchen, shower room and sitting room/bedroom inside and a choice of vine covered private courtyard for the heat of the day outside or the spacious roof terrace either for sunbathing or for the warm evenings to watch the lights of the boats coming and going in Hydra harbour. A small lower garden has your own lemon tree. The views from the roof terrace and the sitting room window are stunning, over Hydra down to the harbour and across the blue sea to mainland Greece. From here you can watch as the Athenians come in there huge yachts at the weekend tangling their anchors with the small local fishing boats in the harbour and at the general passing of life during the week. Ideal location. A romantic comfortable private oasis.

Hydra.: Hydra town is laid out like an amphitheatre around the harbour. There are smaller harbours either side. One has a fish taverna and water sports and can be reach either by a flat walk around the coast or by one of the many water taxi that service the locals. The small harbour on the west side of the town is closer to you and can also be reached by a short coastal walk or water taxi from Hydra harbour. Here there is a good taverna with magnificent views and small fishing boats harbour. Further along from this is what is know as The Baby Beach. The water here slowly deepens and is ideal for all. Much further around the coast is a small gathering of houses and this can also be reach by a path along the hillside. Over the top of Hydra island through the pine forest and down the other side there are secluded bays which can also be reach by water taxi, foot or donkey. Don't forget to book your return!

A Day Out.: From Hydra you can take a day trip to the islands of Spetses, Poros, Dokos, Aegina and/or Agistri. If you wish to travel further hire a car from Poros (across the narrow sea channel at Poros is the small town of Galatas where you will probably get a better deal on your car hire or at least be on the mainland.) From here you can reach Epidavros with it's famous ancient amphitheatre within half an hour and a further hour will take you to Ancient Mycene and Agamennons 'Beehive' tomb. The colossal walls of Tirins are along this journey as is the first capital of Greece, Nafplion, although it still has it's ancient mosques and old town squares it also now has a very chic cosmopolitan feel and is an excellent destination for a day out with it's castle up 999 steps towering over the town and the island fort in the bay which can be reach by local water bus.

Privacy.: The people of Hydra have a sense of privacy and discretion. The building regulations state that no window can over look someone else's property and those that do because they are so old have been tightly shuttered closed.

This sense of privacy has made Hydra into a place that people come to take a relaxing holiday with assurance of discretion. Leonard Cohen, Joan Collins and Richard Branson are some of the well known people that have holiday homes here.

Studio Hydra

  • 4 of 5

Superb location, magnificent views from the roof terrace over the town and harbour - sit up there with evening meal and a glass of wine and your in heaven. Studio a bit basic but is classed as 'budget' - also quiet/secluded/ courtyard/ terrace outside studio if you need to get out of the sun - 121 steps up from harbour that you share with donkeys!

When you imagine a perfect Greek island Hydra is it. Now imagine you siting on your perfectly located roof terrace with the island laid out all around you. Red roof tops cascading to the harbour. Swimming in crystal clear waters. Goat tracks. Coastal walks. Pine forests. Deserted bays. Narrow cobbled lanes to get lost in with unexpected chic shops round corners. Busy and quiet bars. Sea front cafes. Friendly locals. Day trips to other islands: Spetses, Poros, Dokos, Aegina, Agistri. But what gives Hydra it's unique feel is the strict building regulations which keeps everything in traditional harmony & 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, delightfully steady & gentle. There is time to talk, time to smile, time to relax. On Hydra the world is still a beautiful place

Notes:
One of the qualities that lend Hydra it's unique charm is the absence of motor vehicles. This, however does make Hydra not so suitable for those who have difficulty in walking unless they are happy to travel everywhere by donkey. There are also many shallow steps and the streets can be wonderfully narrow so the elderly need to feel confident with steps.
