We were looking for a unique location to start our tour of Greece and recover from jet-lag at the same time.

The home is as beautiful and scenic as the photos and basic groceries were waiting for us when we arrived. If you...

About the neighborhood
The Stone House property is a 5-10 minutes walk (there are no cars on Hydra!) directly above beautiful Hydra Harbour, Hydra Island. The hillside is incredibly peaceful, and the compound is very private, but within minutes you can be shopping or clubbing in the village, or swimming in the nearby azure swimming coves.
