Immerse yourselves in the true feel of Hydra’s history!
In my ancestors’ iconic residence, you will experience the so hard-to-find authentic stay.
Inside the meter-thick stone walls and under the original high ceilings, antique wooden consoles, anchors and cannonballs, you are catered with all modern comforts.
Outside, there is a two-floor courtyard, a veranda, and a balcony with view to the harbor.
Two minutes’ walk from the harbor, the Naval House is the Hydra experience by itself.

The space

In the Naval House, we are adopting measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
We kindly ask for your assistance during your stay.
We want to provide you a relaxing and safe vacation in Hydra.
The Naval House was built in 1893 and belongs to my family since then.
It is an authentic old residence of Hydra, not a trendy city apartment you can find in any modern metropolis.
All antiques are family items.

Its true character is preserved, and put on a pedestal.

Located inside the main town of Hydra, a two-minute walk from the harbor, and only a minimal amount of stairs, brings you to the front veranda.
An imposing 19th century anchor puts you in the mood of the house. You ring the old bronze ship's bell, enter the ground floor, and on your left there is an old divan serving as a 35in (90cm) bed. Next, a traditional bedroom with a 55in (140cm) bed and a 19th century chest, and the bathroom. On your right, the ground floor living room with LCD tv.
The original wooden ceiling hangs 4 meters above the ground!
Try to lift the 19th century cannonballs; they are solid iron!
An original wooden doorway takes you to the kitchen, and then out to the back yard, where the breakfast table is located, surrounded by tall fortress-like stone walls.
The ground floor is cool in the summer, as it is insulated by meter-thick stone external walls.

The bathroom is located in the ground floor.

In the upper floor, you find the second living room and dinning table, and two more bedrooms. One with a 63in (160cm) bed, and one with two 35in (90cm) beds. Tall windows around let ample light in, but the double glass keeps it cool in the summer.
The balcony offers a great view of the harbor, and will surely monopolize your summer nights.

One unit in the ground floor living room, one common unit in the upper floor hallway (chills both upper floor bedrooms simultaneously when their doors are open), and one fan in the ground floor traditional bedroom.

In the kitchen, 19th century cookware are there for decorative purpose only; there are modern ones available for use!
