Aria

Hydra

This fabulous house has been beautifully restored using the techniques and materials of the past. The result is a very comfortable property in a great area of Hydra town which is accessed easily. Perfect for the discerning traveller looking for a luxurious property on this lovely Greek island of Hydra.

Villa Aria is a superb property that is situated in a unique position to enjoy sensational panoramic views of the island and bay.

Villa Aria is a recently constructed property which has been designed in a traditional style. The materials used are those of a bygone era, wood and stone being so good at maintaining a perfect temperature whatever the time of the year. The decoration adds colour to the starkness of the stone and the result is one of neo-classical luxury. There are beautiful pieces of furniture and many paintings from local and non-local artists which make the interior unique. The neutral marble floor allows the earthy colours of the house to stand out and the furniture is of a very high quality as one would expect from a property of such distinction.

The accommodation is divided between a main house and two separate guest suites.

The main house comprises of a living room and dining room with a separate kitchen and guest WC. There are large French windows which lead from the living room onto a large terrace. The kitchen also has access to this large outside space and the terrace benefits from wonderful views. There are various comfortable areas to sit and while away the hours whilst sipping an ouzo and nibbling on a freshly prepared mezze.

Two double bedrooms are located on the upper level of the house, each with its own bathroom and private terrace.

Below the main house are two guest suites with double beds and en-suite facilities.

At the lower level of the house is a private swimming pool, surrounded by a well equipped terrace with outdoor furniture and large seating areas. Some of which are covered, giving necessary shade from the heat of the summer sun.

Villa Aria is very well equipped for entertaining with a modern kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine. The property also benefits from Satellite TV, DVD player and WIFI.

Villa Aria enjoys a unique location that enables you to have an almost panoramic view of the island looking out across some of the finer mansions on the island, over the town to the harbour below. It is a ten minute walk to the centre of Hydra town where the shops, supermarkets, restaurants, tavernas and bars are located. The walk from the villa to the harbour is easy. There are relatively few steps to climb which is a rarity on this island full of hills.

The traditional architecture, absence of vehicles, hospitality of the locals, sophisticated nightlife and general artistic flavour throughout the island contribute to the popularity and the incredible charm of Hydra.

Please note that we cannot usually accept young children at this property due to the unprotected drops.

Just a note to let you know Elizabeth and I are delighted with Villa Aria.
 
The house is more beautiful than either of us imagined. Thanks for all your help making our stay possible. In earlier times I worked as an architect and I can only compliment the owner/architect of Villa Aria for the beauty of the design, the fixtures used, and the high level of craftsmanship and finish.

Hi Vickie
 
I wrote an email to PGV (Maire-Louise and Anna) when I got back, but it seems you didn't get it?
 
I just wanted to let you all know, and the owners of the villa (please send them my most enormous thanks), that our stay in that lovely house was one of the most special holidays any of us have had. Everything was just perfect, quite magical. A very beautiful place indeed to turn 50! My sisters and brother, and my son nephews and nieces absolutely LOVED it - a couple of highlights were the BBQ on Saturday night (Pepa was very helpful), and then going to the upstairs terrace (off the master bedroom) for some star gazing!! 
 
The villa was very well equipped, very comfortable. Full of lovely china and glass, plenty of places to sit and relax, so tastefully furnished, and the views from almost every window and door are incredible. It's a difficult walk up there for some, especially my 75 year old father (!!) but so worth it, and there's a lovely welcome breeze too. 
 
At the weekend there was a sort of storm, no rain but high winds and a very choppy sea. One of the long seat cushions blew away (actually several did, and a towel, but we managed to retrieve these)  but I left a note for Nima where to find it. It was in the next door garden/terrace, and unfortunately there was no way for us to access it, but I am sure it didn't present any problem for Nima. 
 
I hope we left the house as we found it. We were careful to treat it with the greatest care and respect - I know what it's like to have careless visitors as I rent out a holiday home of my own.
 
I would like to come back and stay in the house again, and I hope the owners will have us!!
 
Many thanks for all your help, PGC provides a really wonderful and very friendly service.
 
Best regards, Sadie

Dear Anna
Thank you for all your hard work on making arrangements for our stay at the villa. We were very appreciative of your availability and efficiency. It all went very smoothly and we would certainly use and recommend your company again.
We also enjoyed the house which had marvelous views, a lovely pool with a house that was very well furnished.
The position was excellent.
We very much enjoyed our stay at villa arias. 
With our very best wishes
