Availability Your dates are available
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In the middle of the 19th century, this two-storey vacation villa was built in this prominent position by a captain, who was a descendant of the famous Greek pirate family. It was bought by its current owner, an architect, in 1974 and restored with a lot of care and respect for history. Nine years later, the owner was awarded the national prize for the best reconstructed townhouse by the Greek Ministry of Culture.
In 2002 the island government authorized the owner to build a small pool of 3x6 m in size.
After a short walk from the harbour you reach Villa Kiafa which, from the outside, resembles a fortress and you are at once captivated by the fascinating view over the Saronic Gulf. To reach the holiday home, one first passes through a many levelled atrium with wonderful trees and flowers.
Here, there are many comfortable spots to sit in absolute peace and to read, or just to dream.
Next, one enters the ground floor with a double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and dining room with a terrace, that will make every meal a memorable occasion. The seating area (adjacent to the dining table) with the fire place with its vivid blue color walls can become a bedroom.
On the first floor there is a large bedroom with a 2m x 2m king-size bed, a seating arrangement adjacent to an open fireplace, a study and also an adjoining bathroom.

About this location
The Saronic Gulf Islands region
Hydra is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece, located in the Aegean Sea between the Saronic Gulf and the Argolic Gulf. It is separated from the Peloponnese by narrow strip of water. In ancient times, the island was known as Hydrea (derived from the Greek word for "water"), which was a reference to the springs on the island.
The municipality Hydra consists of the islands Hydra (area 52 km2), Dokos (pop. 18, area 13.5 km2) and a few uninhabited islets. The province of Hydra was one of the provinces of the Piraeus Prefecture. Its territory corresponded with that of the current municipality. It was abolished in 2006.
There is one main town, known simply as "Hydra port" (pop. 1,900 in 2011). It consists of a crescent-shaped harbor, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries that cater to tourists and locals (Hydriots). Steep stone streets lead up and outwards from the harbor area. Most of the local residences, as well as the hostelries on the island are located on these streets. Other small villages or hamlets on the island include Mandraki (pop. 11), Kamini, Vlychos (19), Palamidas, Episkopi, and Molos.

"wonderful villa - perfect and the most amazing views"
We loved the island and the villa, it was perfect, very clean and in great style. It had a lovely small pool which is very unusual to have one for the island - which was wonderful for a dip. The views were incredible and we all had such a lovely stay there. it was quite an uphill walk to get there but most of the steps were easy to take and you have to rise to get that amazing view. We would definitely stay there again
