The Stone House is a lovingly-restored 18th-century aristocratic mansion set atop a hillside immediately overlooking the quaint Hydra harbor. It has fabulous views to the sea, village and mountains. A hand-hewn stone wall encloses the main house, a guest cottage, and a series of gardens and terraces. 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. With three bedrooms and two and a half baths, the property comfortably sleeps seven, or eight if you request our baby crib.

It is equipped with all the implements for entertaining - and both the indoor and outdoor dining tables seat 8-10. The grand master bedroom and its private balcony boast exquisite views in all directions. The guest cottage has a charming brass bed and beautiful corner fireplace. A half-bath lies just steps away. On its roof, a wonderful terrace is outfitted with a marble dining table, and has excellent views as well. There’s also an outdoor shower under a scarlet bougainvillea. The compound is very central: a short walk down one set of the island's many cobblestone staircases places you in the heart of the port. A path through a pine grove brings you to swimming coves. GUEST SERVICES: The Stone House is owned by a family who has been spending time on Hydra for the past four decades. Visitors are hosted by our on-island concierge who will introduce you to the house and share her knowledge of the sights and secrets of Hydra. Although you will have complete privacy during your stay, assistance or advice will only be a phone call away. Maid service is also included one time per week. Email for more details about the house’s many amenities, or check our website: www.oliveandstone.com. Stone House is certified by the Greek National Tourism Organization: EOT # 0262K92000286501.

Wonderful place and wonderful house. Perched high over the Harbour the view is to die for. The food is really good. The sea is cobalt blue and warm to swim in. It’s lovely.

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 ...
