Hydra Island

Hydra Island - a beautiful horse shoe shaped bay

Hydra is close to Athens, in the Saronic Islands, a magnificent harbour and a totally different way of life. There are no cars in town, the streets are too narrow. The whitewashed laneways just beg to be explored. Artists discovered Hydra in the 60s and it has been popular ever since.

Syros Island

Syros Ermoupolis Harbour

Syros is a 2.5 hour ferry ride from Athens, located in the centre of the Cycladic Islands. This is a little-known island because it has remained less frequented by international tourists, more Greeks visit here. It maintains its strong character and charm.

There are marvellous beaches in Syros, and it is wonderful to explore the township of Ermoupolis with its fascinating history. From here you can travel all about Greece in any direction, with frequent handy ferry services, and flights too.


Relax in Santorini by choosing a villa away from the hustle bustle and visiting in May or September. We show you highlights and how to get from Crete to Santorini.
