Crystal clear waters, cobbled alleyways and vehicle-free surroundings are just a few of the things that Hydra Island promises. It’s an ideal destination for stressed-out travelers seeking an escape from their busy lives.
Freshly opened in 2020, “Nesea” provides a home away from home. The name “Nesea” comes from ancient Greek mythology and is one of the Nereid nymphs, protector of the Aegean Islands. The Nereides were protectors of sailors and fishermen, coming to the aid of those in distress. At Nesea, we focus on creating a home-like feeling for our guests while paying special attention to details like our beds, pillows and linens for the best possible quality of sleep. Our rooms are decorated in pastels and earthly tones that exude harmony and serenity, with simple yet chic furniture of natural wood. Eco-friendly and natural materials such as oak, linen and cotton are used, along with some selective handcrafted items by Greek designers. Among the sleek, modern architecture you will also find some elements of traditional island architecture, like our ceilings with beams and reeds. Natural sunlight flows though the space while lighting is set up attentively to brighten each room creating an atmosphere that encourages you to spread out and find a quiet corner to relax. No two rooms are decorated exactly alike, further reinforcing the home-style feel.
The attractive double rooms, open-air or private garden suites and location house, are perfect for a romantic couples’ retreat, solo travelers, a friends’ getaway, or a relaxing family holiday. The Town apartments are just 3 minutes away from the port and have easy access to all the local stores. They are suitable for a couple or group of friends or family. The front two apartments have open lofts with impressive hanging pebble lamps, while the two apartments in the back offer a private garden with outdoor showers, built-in sofas and tables. The smaller Town apartment is also 3 minutes away from the port, suitable for 2 persons, with a separate entrance and private balcony looking out to the town and mountain landscape. Finally, the apartment in “Kamini” is 15 minutes away from the port and is accessible by boat or on foot. It is suitable for a group of friends or family. It offers a large courtyard overlooking the sea, with a sitting area, a fully equipped kitchen and is only 3 minutes away from the nearest beach.
Do you want to have your breakfast looking at the picturesque port filled with local fishing boats? Or do you enjoy doing your morning yoga before heading out to the beach or hiking up the mountains? Or, perhaps, you’d prefer sightseeing and would like to take a historical tour of the island or a guided horse trek? Whatever you may choose, “Nesea” will help you find the best way to spend your days on one of the most beautiful islands in Greece.
