The Artist’s House



This is a beautiful three level villa only a few steps from the idyllic port of Kamini. The residence was originally the house and art studio of the renowned Greek artist, Christos Karas, which after an extensive renovation in 2021, now offers extraordinary stays and personalized services to guests looking to experience the authenticity of Hydra with the comforts of today.

The property combines the charm of a traditional stoned house in Hydra with the personality of an art studio and the luxury of a premium modern home. It can be rented as a villa for larger groups or as separate suites, one on each level. Each level opens to a terrace with arty lounge & dining areas, ideal for a peaceful breakfast, sundowners or al-fresco dining overlooking the coast of the Peloponnese.

The unique layout offers several spots within the residence to isolate while reading a book under a lemon tree but also to enjoy a get-together summer vacation. The original artworks in the bedrooms and impressive sculptures at the terraces inspire a genuine connection with the roots of the residence while the contemporary design, delicate colours and eclectic furniture create a modern retreat for relaxation.
