Efolia House is a holiday house to rent at the back of Hydra town on Hydra Island. On the level road from Hydra Town to Kala Pigadi but some steps up to the house from the main Miaoulis Street and well worth it for the wonderful mountain, town and sea views. Great for 2 couples to share. Available any time of the year.
Although Efolia is one property, it a spread out over three floors. From the street door, a path leads to the lower floor bedsit and external stairs lead up to the terrace of the middle floor. The master bedroom is on the top floor and accessed via a spiral staircase from the middle 'living' floor. For this reason, the property is very suitable for 2 couples but not very practical for families with young children. For couples, Efolia House provides lots of privacy and a sense of independence.
As implied, the lower floor is a self-contained, twin bedroom with an ensuite shower room, built in wardrobe, fridge and refreshment making utensils. It open to a small terrace with table and chairs where you can sit and enjoy the spectacular views.
Middle Floor Living Space
The middle floor of the property is the hub of the house. A series of stone steps lead to the terrace and then you walk into the open plan living space. There is a galley kitchen to one wall, large corner cupboard where you will find the washing machine, comfortable seating and a table to use for winter dining or a place to work and keep your computer, etc.
The kitchen simply fitted with an under the counter fridge and 2-ring electric hotplate. You'll find plenty of plates, glasses and cutlery to make simple salads and dishes to eat at home on the terrace.
Upper Floor Master Bedroom
From the open plan living space a narrow spiral staircase brings you to the top floor master bedroom. Here you will find a large queensize double bed and plenty of wardrobe space. The ensuite has a full size bath with shower over it.
The main outside space is the terrace off the middle floor. The views are as varied as they are wide. You can see the sea looking north and the gorgeous mountains that form the east side of the amphitheatre that hugs Hydra to the south. The terrace catches the morning sun as it rises over the mountains and is cooler in the afternoon & evening so you can enjoy sitting out to watch the colours change the landscape when the sun sets.
