    Description

    The Stone House is a lovingly-restored 18th-century archondikon (aristocratic residence) set atop a steep hillside overlooking the breathtaking Hydra harbor. The hand-hewn stone wall surrounding the property encloses the main house, a guesthouse, and a series of courtyards and terraces. With three bedrooms and two and a half baths, the Stone House comfortably sleeps seven. Decorated with original artwork and carefully furnished with antiques and cozy chairs, the home is perfect for a couple's romantic getaway or a family's summer vacation.

    The main house contains a living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and bath, and guest bedroom and bath. The house is equipped with all the implements for entertaining - and both the indoor and outdoor dining tables seat 8-10. The grand master bedroom boasts exquisite views in all directions: open sea, the cascade of island homes, and the majestic peaks of the mountains surrounding Hydra town. This sweeping room of fabulous high-ceilinged proportions also contains a writing desk, reading chairs, and a completely renovated ensuite bathroom, including a bathtub. A private balcony hangs in the sky, perfect for sipping an evening glass of wine.

    The charming guesthouse contains a gem of a room. Dive into the queen-sized brass bed, and if it happens to be chilly during your stay, light a fire in the beautiful corner fireplace. This free-standing suite has a 1/2 bath just steps away.The Stone House boasts spectacular one-of-a-kind views that span the sea, the port, and the inland mountains. The house is wonderfully central to many of Hydra's delights. A short walk down one set of the island's many cobblestone staircases places you in the heart of the port. Likewise, a gentle meander through a pine grove brings you to the town's swimming rocks.

    Some of the comforts of the Stone House include: wireless internet access, Bose iPod speaker dock, a furnished kitchen, washer and dryer, three fireplaces, and weekly maid service.

    Location of holiday rental in Hydra Town, Hydra, Saronic Islands

    Holiday Type: Beach, Town/City
    Local Activities: Swimming/Watersports

    Location description

    The small island of Hydra is found in the Saronic Gulf, 61km southwest of Piraeus (Athens' main port) and 7km from the Peloponnesus. The inhabited islands of Spetses, Poros, and Aegina are nearby, and can be seen in a daytrip, as can some of the towns of the Peloponnesus. Small, uninhabited islets lie within view off the coast and to the south. Visitors can reach Hydra by sea (90 minutes by hydrofoil). During the high season (June to September), temperatures range from the mid 20s C (80s F) to the mid-to-high 30s C (90s F) in July and August.

    Hydra cradles a bustling harbor 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 - there are no cars or scooters! With the exception of a few micro utility vehicles, 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 become increasingly hard to find in Greece's more heavily-touristed islands. The entire island has been preserved as a national monument and great reverence is paid to Hydra's role in the Greek War of Independence. Among other things, the island contributed one of the largest fleets to fighting the Turks at sea and spawned several national heros. Today, history buffs can explore sights and exhibits around town that illustrate the island's rich past, and several festivals commemorate its heros.

    Hydra itself measures 6km across at its widest point, and is 23km long. Much of the island is rocky and mountainous, making for dramatic coastal scenery as the crags drop to the sea. Olive, almond, and pine trees flourish here, despite dry summers, though some of Hydra's pine forests were destroyed in the wildfires of 2008. Spring brings a surprising array of bright wildflowers, carpeting hills in bright yellows, soft purples, and sprinkles of ruby red.

    Cobbled roads and walking trails along the coast connect the settlement of Mandraki in the north, to the main Hydra town, the villages of Kamini and Vlychos, and the boatyard and community of Palamida to the south. The trail turns inland at Palamida and winds through olive groves and pine forests to reach the tiny outposts of Molos and Episkopi. Generally, people ride in taxi boats to reach other parts of the island, like the southern Bisti Bay.

    Be prepared to walk and wander, whether through the historic architecture of Hydra town, the sleepy fishing village of Kamini, or along the gorgeous craggy coastline trails. Or, for the lover of nightlife, party into the wee hours, sleep late, and swim off the rocks in the cerulean sea.

    Deposit/Booking Notes

    Please note that unlike other accommodations on the island, we do NOT rent out individual rooms. Regardless of the number in your party, you pay the same rate. Olive and Stone offers a discounted rate for bookings of three weeks or longer.

    These prices include utilities (water and electricity), weekly maid service, and basic kitchen provisions provided at the time of arrival. Upon request, we are happy to furnish our guests with additional grocery items for a fee. See About Our Service for more information.

    At the time of booking, Olive and Stone requires a deposit of half the rental fee. The second installment is due 30 days prior to your arrival at the property. Adherence to this payment schedule guarantees your reservation in full. Ten (10) percent of the rental fee is non-refundable. In the event of a cancellation, your deposit (less the 10 percent) will be refunded if we are notified 30 days in advance. Olive and Stone requires a security deposit in the amount of 20 percent of the total rental fee. Once you have vacated the property and we have examined the house and grounds to ensure that no damage has been done, your security deposit will be refunded in full. Olive and Stone invoices its guests, and refunds deposits as necessary, via PayPal. You are not required to have a PayPal account to pay your Olive and Stone invoice.
