Reserve a villa in Hydra for a holiday to remember in the Saronic gulf.
Approaching by sea this ancient pirate landmark is an unforgettable experience, as the port of Hydra is exceptionally beautiful. Once on the island, the visitor succumbs to the charm of architecture. Vast fortified buildings or 18th and 19th-century houses of captains and shipowners, each building is a work of art.
Swimming in beautiful little coves, or scuba diving, in Kaminia, Hagios Nikolios or Bristi, visits to convents like Haghia Efpraxia or monasteries like Haghios Mamas or Prophitis Helias, Hydra offers tourist activities for all tastes.
