Sleeping up to four guests, this superbly restored villa offers a beautiful combination of the allure of luxury with the fascination of the past. With its own private swimming pool, this wonderful Greek Villa provides the setting for a truly memorable holiday.
This noble residence combines traditional elegance with modern comforts on one of Greece's most artistic islands.
A historic, two-story sea captain's house built in the early 19th century, the Kiafa residence is a jewel crowning the hillside overlooking the village of Hydra and the nearby Saronic Gulf islands. The stone residence was rebuilt in 1979 and restored in 1992 by a talented architect who received a national award for the best restored traditional house.
Today, Villa Kiafa perfectly blends the allure of luxury with a fascination of the past. Pure island atmosphere, simple refined decoration, charming outdoor living areas and a small swimming pool with wonderful views create a unique atmosphere of absolute peace and visual splendour.
On the ground floor, there is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a living room with impressive vaulted ceiling that has two sofa beds should they be required. There is a well equipped, open plan kitchen and dining room that opens onto a lovely terrace for the perfect breakfast.
On the second floor there is a large lounge area with an open fireplace and french doors which lead to a balcony offering superb views of the Kamini and Hydra town. This grand space has a double bedroom and en-suite bathroom facilites.
Kiafa Resindence is a fantastic example of the local architecture with one of the finest views across the Hydra town and the Saronic Gulf.

Thanks very much for your email. We had a lovely stay on Hydra and the villa was great. Thank you and all your team for all the advice and help prior to our trip. We really appreciated it and would certainly use you in the future and recommend you to others.
Ann Hunter arrived 22/06/2015
We absolutely loved Kiafa Residence as you know. Think the only thing I'd say is that you should make absolutely certain that whoever rents it is fit enough to deal with the walk to it. Nick and I are really fit 40 somethings and it was a bloody tough climb! Apart from that it's heaven.
All the very best,

Dear All at Pretty Greek Villas
I am writing to thank you all for making our holiday possible. We enjoyed our stay in Hydra very much and it was a truly memorable holiday for our family. We would also like to personally thank Katy the owner for letting us stay in her home, we meant to pick up the contact details she left us but we left them behind on the table so we cannot call her as planned. If you could forward an address or email we would like to write and thank her. We appreciate it was her home and that it was so personal to her, I think that is what made staying at the house so special.
Kiafa is a beautiful house with incredible views in a stunning location we would have liked to explore more but it was so hot! We were very interested to read about its history and its architect.
We do have a few comments which might be helpful. We thought the organisation and communication from Pretty Greek Villas was excellent. All the information you sent us made planning the holiday easy and the travel straight forward. We appreciated the donkey lady meeting us and it was helpful to go via the super market.
Once again we would like to thank you all, we had a great time and certainly want to revisit Hydra using Pretty Greek Villas and, if possible stay at Kiafa, while we are youngish and fit!!

Just a short note to say that we had a magnificent time on the Island of Hydra. The home we stayed in was absolutely beautiful. We couldn t ask for anything more.
Katy, the home owner was there to greet us. She was very nice. We will definitely be back in a few years.
Giles French arrived 08/07/2013
Thank you for your message asking for feedback about our recent stay at Villa Kiafa. We had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed our stay at the villa. The villa is beautiful and has a very charming feel, which made it easy for us to relax.
NOTE, whilst the website certainly makes the villa look very nice, we don't think it really does it justice!
As I said, we had a great time.
Lara Crudgington arrived 18/09/2012
We just had the best few days at Villa Kiafa on Hydra.
The villa is so lovely with incredible views. Very happy with it. Everything was perfect.
Valerie Brooks arrived 01/09/2012
We had an amazing time in Hydra - absolutely loved the house and the island is totally idyllic. I'm sure we'll want to come back and stay there again. And of course, we had the best view on Hydra! It was really special and a priviledge to be staying in such a beautiful property full of things that the owners have so obviously chosen with love and care. We were pleased to meet Katy when we arrived and please can you pass our on our thanks to her.
We will be in touch again and hope to rebook next year.
All the best
Valerie, David, James and Emily

We had a lovely time at Villa Kiafa. It worked really well for us and kept us fit too! We also got quite attached to the resident cat.
Sarah Tjong arrived 22/08/2009
We had a very nice holiday, thankyou. The house was unusual and had great views, it was also very cool being so high up. Thank you for enquiring about our holiday and I hope my comments are of value to you.
