Villa Mirkella, Hydra, Greece
Picturesque hideaway in Hydra
Take your vacation to new heights in this historic villa, nestled on a 40-meter rock cliff above the coast with awe-inspiring views of the sea in three directions. With a central house, built around a stately tower, a separate, traditional Greek house and an independent kitchen, this property can comfortably accommodate a larger number of guests in search of privacy and autonomy. Both the pool overlooking the sea, as well as the nearby beach, only a short stroll away via a private path, ensure seclusion and relaxation as does the prohibition on cars in force on the island.
Elegant interiors combine stone, exposed brick, marble and wood for the ultimate comfort and style. The main house, built from grey marble, provides a spacious lounge and two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, all decorated with modern amenities and rustic flair. With its own veranda, bathroom facilities and bedrooms with exterior doors for discreet access, the guest house also offers unparalleled sea and forest views. A stand-alone kitchen makes al fresco dining convenient and, thanks to an outdoor dining area, eating out has never been so delicious. Original materials have been largely preserved on this property, which has hosted some illustrious guests, including kings and prime ministers and was also featured in a novel by writer Jack Higgens.
The capital of the island, Hydra port, is just a short ride away by sea taxi. Authentic architecture in this beautiful harbor features charming tile roofs and narrow whitewashed paved streets. Visitors will find a range of tourist sites and shops for a seamless blend of traditional and cosmopolitan atmosphere, as well as the opportunity to witness breathtaking sunsets. From the preserved tranquility of the island, to the luxurious haven of this villa, you will enjoy a prime location for a serene getaway from top to bottom!
