Historic, Grand Mansion on Hydra with Amazing View

Decorated with original artwork and carefully furnished with antiques and cozy chairs, this private compound is perfect for a couple's romantic getaway or a family's summer vacation.

Additional Location Information

The Stone House property is a 5-10 minutes walk (there are no cars on Hydra!) directly above beautiful Hydra Harbour, Hydra Island. The hillside is incredibly peaceful, and the compound is very private, but within minutes you can be shopping or clubbing in the village, or swimming in the nearby azure swimming coves.

Hydra's bustling harbor is packed with shops, restaurants, and quayside cafes perfect for sipping a leisurely cappuccino and people-watching. Tiny cobblestone lanes and winding limestone staircases crisscross the island's villages. Since there are no cars or scooters, donkeys and carts provide the island's only land transportation.

Long known as a haven for a rich blend of jet-setters, artists, and writers, Hydra also preserves a traditional, quaint way of life that has become increasingly hard to find in Greece's more heavily-touristed islands. The entire island has been preserved as a national monument, and offers unspoilt swimming coves, walking trails and serenity.
