The space
Among Hydra's imposing and austere buildings that are closely connected to its glorious history, lies too,this unique house built in the late 18th and early 19th century, an era of economic prosperity for the island thanks to trade and shipping.
This house tells the story of the maritime history of the island for centuries as well as the naval battles of Hydra's ships to free Greece in 1821.

Aside from being centrally located, only a few minutes walking distance from the port, this 1-bedroom apartment is unique in that it has its own keyed entrance and is closed off to the main house.

Location

Idra, Attica, Greece

Hydra Town is a national monument.
Little has changed in Hydra since Sophia Loren was on the island filming Boy on a Dolphin in 1957.
When you first arrive to Hydra, it feels like the first time you fell in love. Hydra is like a Greek goddess, a Greek noble lady of 1821, our Greek emerald of the gulf of Argosaronikos. It is in many ways, a throwback to a simpler time. The marble-paved harbour comes as something of a surprise to all first time visitors.
Enjoy nearby nature walking/running/hiking trails and walking distance to the nearest beach of Kamini.
The apartment is a very quiet place, so you will be well rested for your summer adventure vacation.
Hydra is known as an architectural wonder with great history but also with a special cosmopolitan character.

The natural environment, the wild beauty of the mountains and the pristine steep trails with spectacular views to the sea, are one more good reason to explore. For nature lovers who wish to test their actual limits, Hydras Trail Event is organized every year. A racing weekend of mountain racing provides the opportunity to a unique experience!

Hydronetta is a rocky swimming area near by, with cemented sun decks and profound blue waters. A very popular location for swimming, food a drinks all day long with relaxing ambience music and view to the sea and the surrounding islands.

Swimming and sun bathing can be very joyful at the end of the day, and the beautiful sunset locations on the island will compensate you enough and make you anticipate this relaxing time of day everyday!

I am Katia, and somehow taking care of everything at the back scene lately, so I don’t get to meet all of you. I’ve had a stroke the past 2 years so I’m not able to come at all. What remains now is that I have a 20+years experience in customer service and travel industry. Resourceful and proactive, effective communication skills , born and raised Greek with working experience in multinational companies in technology for tourism. Have traveled quite a lot . I love sailing , history , and sunny smiles, music, dancing, and swimming. I enjoy good movies and I read a lot. I try to be creative and live a full life. I love getting to know the world, but I am doing so from home! I have been an experienced traveler myself and I can understand very well how it feels when you find yourself in a place for the first time, especially when there is little time and a lot to see !
