Keresbino Hydra is ideally located at the very center of Hydra, just 150 meters away from the port. Access to the guesthouse is easy and unobstructed (no exterior steps).
Spreading over 512 square meters of land, the house is surrounded by a 400 meters long garden with orange and lemon trees, as well as a beautifully crafted marble fount and limestone pool.
Secluded by a stone wall, it offers a relaxing and safe environment to both grownups and children. With its unique architecture, the Keresbino Hydra guesthouse carries the spirit of its past into the present, a bearer of subtle signs of its history for the guests to decipher.
We reach the 250 years old double-door entrance with a lion-shaped knocker and bolt, adorned with plaster details typical of the old houses in Hydra, the traditional hydraic marble floor in different shades of white and grey, as well as wood and the characteristic local mortar clay finish called “kokkina”. Then we notice the five meters high wooden ceiling, the spacious rooms and magnificent hall with the elaborate cornices. A wide wooden stair with a window on the left offers a glimpse to the beautiful garden an ideal way to welcome the guest before leading them to the spacious sitting-room on the first floor. On the mezzanine, to the right, a small chamber that used to serve as a passage for the house lady to go unseen. The walls are almost 90 centimetres thick with windows with wooden shutters and glass, a robust construction to protect the owners from pirates’ attacks back in the day.
