For Sale
€ 3,000,000

A unique opportunity to acquire one of the most sought after large estate on the island of Hydra with a breath-taking views over the sea.


This estate was donated by Aristotelis Onassis to a relative of Holland's Royal family and in 2006 it was sold to the present owner. Overlooking the picturesque port of Kamini, the property is an estate of 2.950 sq m, surrounded by a traditional stone wall, 1.5-2 m high, with two entrances of local architectural style. The estate is the largest of the island's town plan, offering breath-taking views over the sea and the village. Recently a two level villa of 220 sq m has been built. The Ground level is divided into a living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom, whereas the 1st floor offers 2 master bedrooms and one guest room. Two similar villas for family and guests will be built this year. Additionally, three more villas can be built. So in total, the estate can accommodate six villas. The area is full of olive trees and pines.


Just 37 nautical miles from Athens in the Argo-Saronic Gulf, the long, narrow island of Hydra (or Ydra) is both cosmopolitan and tranquil. Donkeys and boats are the only form of transport as laws prohibit automobiles (except for a few small garbage trucks), mopeds, and even bicycles. Due to the island’s status as a national historic monument, strict building laws also regulate development, protecting Hydra’s traditional architectural style and enhancing its old-world charm. Access from Athens is 1 ½ hours by hydrofoil or 2 ½ hours by car to Metohi and then a small boat ride (Water Bus Service). The property is suitably located only 120 m from the small port of Kamini.
