Eclectic Bohemian Small House (~€105/night)2BR / Kiaffa
A little house on top of the hill, filled with unique heritage objects
At the top of Hydra town (450 steps to be exact), this is a unique, bohemian, one floor level, little stone house, built originally in 1970, by a local building master, to serve as his own residence.
Its front, a vine covered open terrace, looks onto the sea to the Peloponnese and opposite Kamini hill with view of the Koundouriotis historic residence across.
Its spacious, comfortable living room contains a myriad of small Greek antiquities, European antique furniture and traditional 18th century folklore objects- and many, many books. The large fireplace gives warmth in the colder months. 3 fans are there for the really hot days.
The large, equipped yet simple kitchen has hosted many happy dinners and sits 6-8 persons at its oriental wooden table. The tableware contains pottery from Persia and Greece and heirloom silver cutlery.
There is a main bedroom with a large double bed. A fold able 2m bed can be put there of an extra child
A smaller more compact bedroom with mezzanine upper bed surface about 6 m2 (with 2single matresses 1.50 m long. Below it, is a double bed 1.70 m long just below it which can fit 2 persons, yet preferably one. .There is small Italian hand-carved 18th century cupboard
To sum up, his mezzanine room can sleep up to 3 persons max- but ideally 2 will be most comfortable. An iron ore hanging space accommodates clothing and other things.
The elegant bathroom with shower, equipped with chandelier and gold carved mirror, has a unique shower design. It has 3 doors and when wants to ‘go’ then all 3 need closing!
A small, enclosed back terrace looks onto the mountain and a wild permaculture garden containing 2 citrus trees, orange tree and Jasmine. Perfect for afternoon coffee. An outside shower for after sea and marble water basin.
A note for SUMMER season, about showers and water in general- the house is located in the area of Aghios Antonios, which may experiences a low pressure of water- particularly during summer and during certain times during the day- specifically 9-10 am and 7.30-10 pm.
It’s a 7 min walk down to ‘4 Corners’ supermarket for fresh bread and 12 min walk down hill to Hydra town or Kamini across.
House – 90 m2. with 2 bedrooms. Sleeps 6 max persons- 4 persons comfortably. Includes mosquito nets (and hooks) for all beds, blankets, linen. Children’s’ toys. Maid service available once a week at extra cost upon request. All our linen are second-hand but clean and ironed.
Please note that because we live there very often on weekends, our cupboards have little hanging space and storage space for our guests’ things.
Wireless internet is available in most cafes and restaurants on the island
Our house does not have internet, so we recommend the purchase of an internet on-the-go mobile modem stick. These can be picked up from local Greek Cosmote or Germanos shops or the the Germanos shop at Athens airport. We are happy to facilitate on this depending on the length of your stay.
