The view from the mansion is fantastic!!! The mansion itself is very well preserved and provides great information to the customs of the people at the time. Nice gifts to take home with you on the 3rd floor, in very reasonable prices. The front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful.

Big history from a small island. I didn't realize how important Hydra was to the Greek revolution ....

What a beautiful and interesting property this is, an unusual mixture of period house, costume museum and basement art gallery, not forgetting the stunning views. Some nice items, including posters, can be purchased at very reasonable prices.

This is an excellent exhibition, worth the leg work to get up there. I also loved the painting exhibition in the basement. Who knew "little Hydra" was hiding all this?

A very interesting early 19th century family house of a very important Greek admiral . You can really imagine how they lived at that time. Beautiful position , incredible view of the town . A dream place . When you get out, just make a right and go down to a large square . You will get there very easily... More

I like big old houses. I like to see the inside, the scale of the rooms, how it flows. The house is very simply furnished and has some nice displays of festival costumes. It was fun to walk through.
