Aloe Vera

Hydra

Situated in Kamini and very close to the sea, 3 tavernas, bars and grocery stores, this sweet little Greek cottage provides a charming environment for a couple or small family and of course for honeymoons! Only ten minutes walk from Hydra town, Kamini is one of Hydra's best kept secrets.

Perfect for a couple wanting to holiday on the wonderful Greek island of Hydra, this stone house is located in the quiet surroundings of Kamini and is one of the prettiest little houses in our collection.

Aloe-Vera is a stone property situated above the charming fishing village of Kamini, only 5 mins walk from the nearest cove for swimming. The house is very private and peaceful with serene views over the town of Hydra and the hills beyond. The house is in an excellent position to explore some of the best walks on the island and to sample the village life, which is the unique flavour that Hydra offers. One recommended walk is to the bay of Vlichos.

The entrance to the property leads to a very large and secluded courtyard garden planted with unusual cacti plants and with dining and seating areas that have been carved out of the surrounding rock.

From the courtyard, the entrance leads into a charming cottage kitchen with dining area carved out of the rock. A flight of stairs leads to the upper level which consists of a living room and a double bedroom with queen-sized bed. Ceiling fans are also present. The living room is incredibly charming, colourful and brightly decorated. The ceiling is vaulted and constructed in a traditional way exposing the wooden beams. A 3rd guest can be accommodated on a single divan bed which is screened off from the rest of the living room for privacy. An external stone staircase leads from the bedroom to a very pretty patio below. There is a WC/shower room inside and a second smaller WC/shower which is situated under one of the stone arches downstairs in the courtyard. An external shower is also located under the outside steps of the main entrance which is useful after returning from the sea.

This is a well equipped property with air-conditioning in the living room and bedroom, ceiling fans, mosquito nets on doors and windows, WIFI, TV, DVD, radio, CD and MP3 player, and is comfortably furnished throughout.

Kamini is a lovely village where it seems as if time has stood still with its little main square with stone houses clad in age-old vines and with its own small harbour lined with brightly painted fishing boats. Despite the quietness of surroundings, Kamini boasts three excellent tavernas with stunning views of the harbour and bay as well one of the best beach bar-restaurants on the island. The village is only about 10 - 15 mins walk from the main harbour and town of Hydra along the old battlements which are fringed with pine trees. Guests need to be aware that Hydra has many steps so an average level of fitness and mobility is required.

Aloe-Vera villa really is a super little property and provides a setting that is unique and with the quintessential flavour of Hydra.

Prices below are based on 2 guests sharing one bedroom. A 3rd guest or a 2nd guest using the single bed in the living room can be accommodated at Euro 20/day extra. Please note that the property is not suitable for children under the age of 12. In August, minimum length of stay is 14 nights.

Harry von Behr, 2018
We had a great trip thanks.  

Emma Torrance, 2016
Thanks again for a lovely, relaxing week. Aloe Vera is truly special!

Emma Russell, 2015
What can I say... we had a fabulous time. We have travelled to several of the Greek Islands but it was a first for Hydra and fell in love with it, we did a lot of walking and found the countryside beautiful and the total lack of vehicles an absolute delight. Hydra town was good fun, with a mix of traditional Greek tavernas and some really very sophisticated restaurants. We stayed in Kamini which was lovely, we're missing being woken by the clip-clop of donkeys ....
 
Aloe Vera villa was a home rather than a holiday villa with every possible item you could imagine. The owner was fantastic, even cooked us a meal the evening we arrived and was the font of all knowledge regarding the island.
 
Big thank you to you and your team too, booking was so easy. Overall you have two very happy customers...
 

Alastair Macorkindale, 2014
We had a marvellous time, thank you. And we will certainly be returning to Hydra. The house was perfect for us, and we will make another booking with you at some point in the near future.

Barbara Elson, 2014
We found Aloe Vera a very pleasant and comfortable place to stay, more like a home than a holiday rental. The owner was very welcoming and helpful and we would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others. We were also impressed by your company and would look to rent other properties in other locations in the future.

Davide Pino, 2012
Our stay and holiday at Aloe Vera was wonderful, under many aspects. We liked the fact the the villa is in a quiet spot of Hydra, but still close to main town, shops and restaurants.
 
The owner has been very kind and helpful throughout the whole period; we were welcomed perfectly, helped when we needed info and tips.
 
The villa is really beautiful, simple but very carefully designed and decorated. The bedroom is really quiet and we slept extremely well.
 
I will certainly recommend it to anybody who wants to stay in Hydra.

Adam Beaumont, 2012
We had a really fantastic time at Villa Aloe Vera. It's funny because when we were booking our holiday it came down to a toss-up between the villa on Hydra and a hotel on Siros. They were the same price. Looking back now, I can't believe we were even considering the hotel over the villa. In Kamini, we had tons of space for the two of us. The house was simple but perfect. The lovely courtyard really makes the place. 
 
Everything went smoothly, from being met off the boat to having the mule train waiting to pick up our bags when we left. Kamini was wonderful. I think we both preferred being out of Hydra town itself. We're pretty mobile, so it really didn't make much difference, and the walk round the coast is really special. Also in Kamini, you're closer to a lot of excellent swimming spots.
 
We definitely want to return to Hydra. It really suited us. It was a great holiday, so many thanks.

We had a fabulous time at Aloe Vera, Hydra. We arrived in a heatwave for the island and the air conditioning was crucial! We were well looked after and knew that we could ask for advice at any time.
 
The villa is extremely well maintained and carefully equipped, down to a torch for evening walking out. It is also very charming.
We wanted for nothing. When we arrived there was plenty of water, coffee etc. and a great description of tavernas we could go to.
 
The villa was regularly cleaned. We would highly recommend it and hope to return one day.

Gabrielle Hunting, 2011
What a fantastic place Hydra is, we had a fab holiday thank you. Our transfers were extremly efficient, Vassilis was charming & very interesting, giving us an insite into the events occurring in Greece today,along with the history etc. And the taxi ride was beautiful & v. civilised. To be met by the same driver on our return was lovely, we continued where we left off !. Great idea to spend excess time in Plaka, fascinating place & so calm . Would def think about a w/e in Plaka, had'nt realised you can be somewhere so central.
 
Aloe Vera was truly perfect. the owner certainly has an artistic eye, her attention to detail showed everywhere. The cottage is beautiful & the courtyard sublime. To have so much space/privacy/peace , it was better than we could have hoped. We are v impressed by Pretty Greek Villas, you certainly go the extra mile, are v efficient, have a winning formula.
 
Thank-you so much, we certainly hope to use you again & have recomended you to our friends.

Wendy Holmes 2011
We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Aloe Vera in Hydra.  The cottage was simply beautiful - tastefully decoated and personalised with the owners belongings and own artwork.  The attention to detail was superb and made us feel very welcome, as if we were staying in a home rather than simply a house. The owner had put special little touches in the cottage to welcome us, including flowers, champagne and flowers (as we were newly weds) fresh lemons, home-made jams and other goodiesin the fridge, lavender on the towels.  It felt so special, absolutely lovely.
 
Your company were very helpful in the booking process and gave us excellent information to start us on our way.  We would definately use your company again and will recommend you to others.
 
Thank you for a holiday to remember.
