Please note that Hydra is an island completely preserved by the Greek state, hence cars, scooters and bicycles are not allowed.This means that you should be in good walking condition. A taxi is either a mule or a boat ! Lively harbour front with many shops, tavernas and cafés. Small fishing villages with lovely tavernas. Good quality of food and authentic Greek cuisine, due to the high number of Greek visitors. Lovely, small beaches, some nearby, some by fishing boat 'taxi'. Good diving. Mountain hikes and monasteries. Total stress-free relaxation and special adventures in an original Greek environment. More

About the neighborhood
Directions to the house: Follow the signs to the Zourvas Lighthouse, or: when in the harbour, turn left on the road (Miaouli Street) located before the town clock tower ('Big Ben'). Keep going upwards for 10-15 minutes. The road then divides in a 'Y'. Keep left and walk another 2-300 metres. The road divides again, turn left, and VillaHydra will be in front of you, 100 metres up. If you ask directions, ask for 'Manolis Roussis'. The area is called 'Agia Fotini'. If you have heavy luggage, you may 'book' a mule at the harbour or we may organize one. Price is around 20 euros and one mule can carry 3 large bags. You may combine your visit to Hydra with visits to the neighboring islands of Spetses and Poros, the mainland - Peloponissos (Nafplion, Epidaurus) or Athens. Hydra is total relax...
Getting around
Then entire island of Hydra is preserved. Cars, scooters and bicycles are banned. Streets are cobble-stoned. A taxi is either a mule or a boat. So one walks quite a lot in Hydra. In return, it is one of the most beautiful places in Greece, it has a unique serenity and atmosphere.
