Porto Hydra: Greece’s Majestic Little Venice



Some call it Greece’s Miami; others call it a small Venice. But whatever one wants to call it, Porto Hydra is a majestic place, a hidden paradise, and two hours away from Athens by car.

Situated in northern Peloponnese, very close to the port town of Ermioni and just opposite Hydra island in the Argo-Saronic Gulf, Porto Hydra Village is a small community of over 300 private villas and holiday homes.

The villas have magnificent gardens with palm trees and exquisite greenery, pools, tennis courts, and other amenities, all built around a canal network giving access to Hydra, Poros, and the Spetses islands by private boat, while they are accessible by car.

The village complex was the vision of Nikos Konstantinidis who started its development in the mid-1970s. Since then, the village has undergone impressive growth and beautification.

Only a few dozen people live there permanently, in the summer the villa owners spend their holidays there, and Hydra attracts many visitors who want to admire this small Greek paradise.
