We stayed at Kiaffa cottage 3 times in 2011, 2012 and 2014, always at springtime. If you don't mind walking steep stairs uphill, this is a fantastic place to enjoy Hydra, far from hordes of day-trippers but quite close to everything. The aperitif on the rooftop is a must. In Kiaffa Cottage you will find a homy feeling, don't expect luxury. Everything here is genuine and simple, just like Greek food :-) Pascal and her pals have always been very helpful, friendly and mindful. Despite the disappearance of a bunch of classic rock vinyls that were the perfect touch in such a lovely house (Where Have All the LPs Gone?), we love Kiaffa Cottage and we do recommend it. We will be back, no doubt! Silvia & Max.
