Christina's Stone House Apartment (from €190/night)<€200 / 1 bathroom / 2BR / Hydra Town / Sleeps 5
This beautifully restored, traditional Hydriot stone villa has belonged to Christina’s house for six generations. It has two floors: a first floor with a small veranda and a second floor with a big veranda, with views of the town, the port, the sea, and the Peloponese. The view of the sunset is fantastic!
The self-contained apartment on the terrace level has a brand-new kitchenette, two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two twin beds, and a bathroom. There is also a single bed in the kitchenette area. All rooms provide access to an enormous, sun-drenched terrace with panoramic sea and mountain views. The sunsets are fantastic.
If you need more space, bedrooms and a bathroom are available in mid-level of the main house. Please ask for availability and rates.
In addition to the enormous private terrace with gorgeous sea and sunset views, guests will have access to a private walled garden.
The house is steps from the port, with about 30 odd stairs to reach the house. Guests enter the property through a small courtyard, which leads back into a walled garden, planted with trees and flowers. Stairs immediately to the right of the entrance lead up to the apartment.
