Hydra Country House
From €100 per night
1 double bedroom for 2 people plus day bed in the sitting room for a 3rd person. Minimum stay 2 nights. Available all year. Large private courtyard.
This is a sweet little, single story traditional house, located in a quiet area behind Hydra Town, that is a perfect retreat for romanitc couples.
From the large well appointed courtyard, the house open to a small entrance hall with open plan sitting room and the kitchen to the rear.
The open plan living space had a day bed which can be used as a comfortable sofa or an equally comfortable single bed for a third person. The room is air-conditioned (and we have radiators for the winter months or fans if you prefer during the summer). But as the house is a traditionally built Hydra home, the thick stone walls, insulated wooden ceiling and ceramic floor tiles will mean that many of you won't need air-conditioning except in extremes of temperature!
There is a table if you wish to eat indoors which comfortably seats 4.
You will find everything you need to cook 'at home' while you stay at the Hydra CountryHouse. There's a full-size, electric oven, 4 ring hob and extractor, larder fridge/freezer and marble sink. In the cupboards you will find plenty of cooking pots & utensils, crockery and cultlery as well as a toaster and kettle. You will even find a supply of the organic herbs that we collect, dry and store each year from the hills of Hydra!
The double bedroom is large with plenty of built in wardrobes and drawers. There is a TV and air-conditioning. Crisp white bedlinen and bathroom towels are provided. We also provide outside & beach towels for your convenience.
Next to the bedroom there is a neat shower room with a shower cubicle, toilet, hand basin with a mirror and good lighting. You will also find a complimentary set of toiletries including shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and soap to enjoy.
Our guests always say that they enjoy having such a large private courtyard with two sun-loungers and even an exercise machine for those who miss their visits to the gym. It's perfect for alfresco dining or a place to laze the day away sitting in the sun reading a book or enjoying a glass or two of wine together.
We are Vicky and Nikos Koukoudakis and we look forward to meeting you. When you arrive we will be at the port to greet you as you disembark. If you are coming for a longer stay with luggage then we can help to organise a mule to carry your bags to the house.
We will escort you to the Traditional Stony House, pointing out essentials like where the beach boats are, landmarks, favourite restaurants, the banks, etc., as well as our traditional grocery shop at the harbour end of Miaoulis. We are at the shop every day so it's easy to call in if you need anything or have a query on your way down to the harbour. Of course if you need us we are always available by phone.

Enquiries & Reservations
From the disembarkation area of the port it is 900m to the Hydra Country House, walking along the level, but upward slopping main Andreas Miaoulis Street, so there are very few street steps to climb. For the average person it takes about 15 minutes to reach the house from the port.
