A lovely traditional “spiti” only a 15 minute walk from the port of Hydra along the coast road (flat!) that leads directly to the front gate. Nearby is the beach of Mandraki which is popular for swimming.
Directly below the house are steps that lead to a private area for swimming.
The property consists of four houses which have been joined together on a large plot of land (1800m²). The houses are built of traditional stone.
On entering the house, is a sitting area and under the arch is a bedroom with its own bathroom.
Half way up the inner staircase is another room which is at present being used as another bedroom – very cozy during the winter.
Continuing up the staircase you enter the main living room and kitchen area, decorated in traditional style. There is also a bathroom off the kitchen.
From the sitting room doors lead onto a lovely terrace which has wonderful views of the sea. Spacious and definitely a place to relax and enjoy this peaceful spot!
From the opposite side of the living room is another door which opens to another outdoor sitting area. Continuing, there is a separate guest house completely fitted with kitchen, bedroom and small living area.
Upstairs from the main living room, is a staircase which leads to another bedroom and bathroom. The owner has also made a small cot for anyone with younger children and another mezzanine sleeping area.
There is also a small veranda which offers the same wonderful views of the sea below and across to the Peloponnese.
The property is made so people can either be together or separate. There is a large plot of land which has been landscaped with olive trees, flowers and shrubs. There is also a traditional oven outside, great for making bread or pizzas!
At the very top of the plot is a veranda which has the best views of all and looks across the top of the house.
