Hydra is one of Greece's most enchanting and accessible isles, about an an hour from Athens, boasting a beautiful port, it's serenity and island feel is added to by the fact that there are NO cars or motorcycles allowed on the island at all. It's a walker's and shopper's paradise, and also boasts museums, art galleries, splendid beaches and some of Greece's finest restaurants. Hydra's waterfront is one of the most charming in Greece, with numerous cafes, restaurants, and tavernas where both locals and tourists alike gather. The town is a captivating maze of characteristically Greek island style narrow streets and has retained it's character and charm in part due to the Greek Ministry of Culture who have gone to great lengths to maintain the authenticity of this historical and cultural treasure. Additionally, there are NO cars or motorcycles on the island (though donkey's often serve as "taxis"). The island gained notoriety when Leonard Cohen began visiting regularly in the 60's and ultimately bought a home there, helping it to become such a haven for artists. Today the population is an eclectic mix of locals, wealthy Athenians who maintain holiday homes here, and enclaves of writers, and painters and sophisticated expatriates. There are abundant swimming spots in some of the Med's finest waters, the closest pebble beach is just 5 minutes from the harbor, and Kaminia Bay, is well known and popular, or private boats can be rented to go to your own isolated bay or cove from the hundreds available around the island. There are beautiful hikes to monasteries perched high in the hills, through golden hillsides alive with spring or fall wild flowers, purple sage, and olive groves. Enjoy your own fine Greek villa rental on enchanting Hydra, in the Saronic Gulf.

We will be adding new villas for Hydra this year.
