Freddy's is a drop-dead gorgeous example of a house for gracious living on Hydra Island Greece. It's the perfect Hydra holiday house for extended families to share as there's plenty of space for everyone to spread out and not get on top of each other.

Guests have access to the entire house and garden. It is detached, walled and completely private and not overlooked. Very importantly, the house is located in Lower Kaminia, which means not too many steps, and thus it is easy to come and go as often as you like during the day.
Interaction with guests
We live on Hydra Island all year and own several houses which can be used to accommodate guests coming for events such as weddings. We personally meet our guests upon arrival, arrange for mule transportation of guests luggage to the house, and familiarize our guests with the home. We enjoy helping our guests customize their stay on Hydra to suit their particular interests. We will tell you the best restaurants and beaches, coordinate boat excursions for an afternoon, advise on the best museums and cultural activities, and assist with making any medical arrangements, should needs the need arise. We will also hook you up with our Tech guy, if you have any technical issues with your computers.
We realize that getting to Hydra can be challenging. In order to make travel to and from the island as easy as possible, we often arrange for our licensed taxi driver and trusted family friend to meet our guests as they step out of the Athens airport arrival terminal, or at any place of their choosing in Athens and transport them to Metochi, on the mainland just across from Hydra. There our boat taxi driver will meet you and take you straight to the dock in Kamini, where we will meet you and bring you up to the house. Should you be coming to Hydra by High speed ferry on Helenic Seaways we can make reservations for you, which usually saves our guests time and aggrevation. And of course, we will meet you in Port, arrange donkey transportation of your luggage, and take you to the house. We speak English, French, Italian, as well as Greek. Our trustworthy housekeeper, Peppa, has been taking care of our home for 10 years, and is available for cleaning and cooking whenever as you like.
No smoking in the house, is our main rule. We've always found that our guests treat our house with the utmost respect and care, and don't feel the need for formal rules.
From Sep 1 - Nov 30, 2017 the minimum stay is 3 nights.

I was born in Washington, D.C. and graduated from Yale in 1981. I have been in the real estate and building business all my life. My uncle Freddy came to Hydra in 1964 and bought Freddy's House, (Freddy's House is our larger house, which is also available for rent). The Bradlee family has owned and lovingly cared for Freddy's House for 50 years. My wife and I purchased Nicaela's House in 2003, and began renovations. In 2010, I moved to Hydra with my wife and twin boys. We enjoy renovating old houses, boating, cooking at home, and traveling around Europe. We have particularly enjoyed working with the people who rent our houses to make sure they have an ideal stay and experience Hydra to the fullest.
