The Courtyard House is an 18th-century stone house in the heart of Hydra town. It is nestled in a peaceful part of the town and has the rare advantage of being only about a three-minute walk from the lovely harbour. It is low down and can be reached without having to climb many steps (three very low ones in total!).
The house has a large secluded courtyard with a lovely lemon tree. This pretty courtyard is surrounded by wisteria and jasmine and is an ideal place for a tranquil breakfast.
With three bedrooms and three bathrooms (1 with a bath tub and 2 with showers), the Courtyard House comfortably sleeps eight and makes a great holiday home. However, there is also a sofa bed in one of the sitting rooms for two extra guests.
Decorated in a traditional style, the house has retained its original character, while at the same time has all the comforts of clean, modern living. The kitchen and all the bathrooms have been newly renovated. The bathrooms have been completely renovated with classic Villeroy & Boch tiles and fittings. The house contains two living rooms, a large kitchen, a master bedroom and bathroom, and two guest bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. All the rooms have lovely high wooden ceilings and wooden floorboards. The home is perfect for a couple's romantic getaway or a family's (or two families') summer vacation.
On the first floor, the master bedroom has a double bed and a single bed and use of the main bathroom with bath tub. The master bedroom opens out onto a pretty secluded terrace where one can have quiet cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine surrounded by the smell of jasmine.
The other large bedroom on this level has a double bed and its own balcony. It also has its own en suite bathroom.
The third bedroom is on the ground floor. It has a double bed and a single bed and it also has an en suite bathroom.
The kitchen is large with a family breakfast table and is fully equipped with a toaster, kettle, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, cutlery and crockery, etc.
Hydra is a treasured getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. The Courtyard House is a safe haven for little ones, as is Hydra itself. It is a very easy picturesque walk to the harbour without any steps, and the lack of cars and mopeds make Hydra an ideal destination.
