Hydra Town, Hydra, Saronic Gulf Islands, Attica
A truly unique multi-level house in the picturesque island of Ydra, built in 1870 and fully restored in 1967 by Greek artist Eleni Vernadaki. It's a three bedroom house with a fully equipped kitchen, large living spaces and multiple outside terraces and gardens, in a quiet neighborhood, and is ideal for a relaxing holiday.

Interaction with guests
Our house is located in a very quiet neighborhood, away from the hordes of tourists, but still only a 10min walk down to the port, where you'll be able to find anything you need. Right next to the house you will find a small grocery store (very convenient for basic supplies!) and a couple of more stores are located 4-5min away.

About the neighborhood
Our house is located in a very quiet neighborhood, away from the hordes of tourists, but still only a 10min walk down to the port, where you'll be able to find anything you need. Right next to the house you will find a small grocery store (very convenient for basic supplies!) and a couple of more stores are located 4-5min away.
Getting around
Getting around in Ydra is done mostly on foot (no cars are allowed on the island) or by boat (for the nearby beaches or to do a tour of the island). Our house is 10min walking distance to the port where you will find bars, cafes, restaurants, pharmacies, medical center, grocery stores/supermarkets, post office, shopping areas, as well as the boarding areas for the boats that go to the beaches (we can tell you which are the best ones!).

How to get there
Ferry: Hydra Port: 0.4 mi
To get to Hydra, the easiest way is to book a ferry with Hellenic Seaways from Piraeus Port. It takes about 2 hours to get from Piraeus port to Hydra.

The house is about 650m from the port of Ydra, a bit uphill (about 15min to walk up, 10min to walk down). There are quite a few steps to go up, so if you think this might be a problem for you, please talk to us first.
