About the Owner
About BRETT HESSE
We are an English based couple who fell in love with the island of Hydra many years ago. We holiday on the island throughout the year. We now have the villa next door, so we have decided to let our first villa. We known many people on the island and can advise on our favourite places to eat, drink and eat.If this is your first visit to this charming and unique island we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. We found our Villa after a lot of searching and one of the reasons that we chose it was that despite the walk up the hill, it as one of the few properties with amazing views and cooling breezes in the summer. Whereas we enjoy going to the port for mornings and evenings, the crowds during the busy summer periods can be too much for us , so we enjoy the escape to our tranquil hideaway.
BRETT HESSE purchased this villa in 2007
Why BRETT HESSE chose Greece
We bought the property as holiday home and we stay on the island in our other property normally during April to October.
We love the tranquillity and unique charm of the island, where most people hardly ever lock their doors. It is safe to walk around 24 hours a day and even though a historical site, Hydra has an abundance of places to eat, drink and shop. A typical 3 course meal with wine is 15 Euros, a boat trip to a beach is from 5 Euros, Mules to/from the port are 15 Euros if required. There are amazing walks around the island and in May the island is covered in wild flowers. There are also many swimming places around the port and beaches are dotted all around the island. Two our favourites are Vlychos and Plakes with the most charming tavernas right on the beach.
