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 on a mere 300 m from the seafront and is a short gentle walk up from the main port.
