A true Hydra gem, constructed by Venetian architects around 1808, as a residence for Admiral A.Miaoulis, this unique mansion overlooks the Aegean and invites you to experience the grandeur of the island’s past.
Listed by the Greek Archaeological Society as a monument, the house has been carefully restored to meet contemporary needs and is a unique property for those who like the atmosphere and cultural landmarks of the past.
Located in Avlaki, 10 minutes walk from the port, on the western slope, it provides stunning views from Tselevinia islands to the island of Spetses and amazing sunsets from the large windows. All decorative elements i.e. painted ceilings, wooden beam ceilings, apses around windows and doors, cupboards, were accurately restored and stand as reminders of the times Hydra was world class trader and nautical power. You cannot stop admiring different details, from the amazing tiles on the floor to the decoration of the ceilings, antiques and old memoirs. The bedrooms are very atmospheric, with beautiful bathrooms, and windows with panoramic sea views.
The veranda overlooking the garden and the sea is ideal for relaxing after a day of swimming watching the sunset and enjoying a cool drink. A large patio, nearly covered by a huge rubber tree, provides a peaceful romantic dining area in this one of a kind historical mansion.
