View Gallery

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.

We did have a good holiday and Hydra is beautiful.

Kind regards

David F. arrived 9th May 2018

Just to say that my wife (Kate) and our friends (Don and Sarah) had a
wonderful holiday on the beautiful island of Hydra and are very grateful to Marie Louise for all she did for us. We hope to be back on the island very soon.

All the best,
David F.

 

Barteld S. arrived 25th July 2017

We have absolutely enjoyed our stay at Kiafa Residence. The house is magnificent and the Styliandi-family were great hosts, very concerned and strongly implicated.

Kind regards,
Barteld.

 

Nick B. arrived 29th June 2017

Got back to a grey London early this morning.
We had a brilliant time and the Villa was spectacular in so many ways
not least because of the generosity of Kaiti ,the owner ,who met us in
and had seen to small things like making sure that all the tea light
holders had new tea lights in - small but made an impression!
One thing that I think should be pointed out to potential Hirers is
the walk from the harbour to the villa. It is only 15 / 20 minutes but
it is almost vertical and in temperatures of over 100 degrees not to be
undertaken lightly however to flop into the pool after is amazing!
I should also mention Vasillis the taxi driver who was great and very
reliable.

Kind regards,
Nick

thanks for your bookings, recommendations and information, everything worked out fine, we all enjoyed our holidays in Kiafa Residence and Hidden Manor, the houses were extraordinary and very special places, arranged and furnished in a delicate and tasteful way, also the transfers were well arranged and no problem.

Best wishes and greetings from Vienna,
Sabine

Nicola H. arrived 11th Aug 2013

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!!

Many thanks
Best wishes
Nicola H.

 

Jim B. arrived 28th July 2013

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.

Thank you,
Jim B.

 

Giles F. arrived 8th July 2013

As I said, we had a great time.

Valerie B. arrived 1st Sept 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
