We spent one week in the apartment on the top of the house (the biggest one with two rooms). We were a family with two small kids. From the beginning, the communication with Mette was very good and she was very helpful and answering very...More

About the neighborhood
Our house is located in the outskirts of Hydra town. 'Living with the locals' is how one of our guests once described it. A peaceful neighborhood with the typical local sounds of mules walking by, goat bells ringing in the mountains, birds/hens and the locals talking to each other. Hiking trails to the mountains and monasteries are right outside our house.
Getting around
Hydra is totally preserved and car-free. Also bicycles and scooters are prohibited. This means that you do walk a lot. The roads are with cobble stones, no asfalt. A taxi is either a mule or a boat.
Car not needed
How to get there
We have maps which I will try to upload. When standing on the harbour front, you turn left on Miaoulis street, right before the clock tower (Big Ben). Follow this road all the way up. Where it divides into a 'Y',keep left and walk another 300 metres. Now you will see VillaHydra to your left - a large white two-storey house, just another 100 metres up. The road up does not have stairs but is steadily elevating. The walk up is about 10-15 minutes, and going down 5-10 minutes.
