I've been reading about this Greek island called Hydra. There are no cars or even bicycles. The only mode of transportation is by donkey! Apparently it was a hot spot for artists in the 1960's. If I ever go there, I want to rent this bohemian cottage. Isn't that kitchen fabulous?
Love the kitchen. And donkeys! Oh boy!!
The island sounds super cool.
Does the cottage come with a ‘free’ donkey to use? 🙂
Oh my goodness YES.
This looks incredible! I rented an apartment and spent two weeks in Italy last summer and it was so amazing. Maybe next time I’ll have to save for Greece!
It sounds interesting, but you’ve got to post a picture of the view 🙂
holy moly i looove that
I’d love to go to Hydra. If I went I would stay here – http://www.greekhotel.com/saronic/hydra/bratsera/
It’s a converted sponge factory and looks idyllic. I’ll have to make do with Rhodes this year as my sister is getting married there in August. I can’t wait!
Really no bicycles even?! Rough terrain, or a deliberate snub?
I am not quite sure, Becky! Maybe it is the rough terrain. They do let you walk though:)
Alison-that hotel looks amazing!! The wedding sounds like fun!!
oh ive been to Hydra twice – its such a beautiful island…cute white washed island home…
yes, very fabulous. i would love to get to work everyday by donkey..
Eeek- I have ridden donkeys in greece before, and also walked up hills and been almost thrown off by donkeys. I would not recommend it! Sorry to be negative- I was all for it until you mentioned the donkeys!!
Amazing. Love those stripe curtains.
You had me at ‘donkey’. Looks like a lovely place to spend vacation in!
A good friend of mine was from the island of Crete and remembers it being a great vacation spot. His family literally owned one of the smaller mountains over there and had there houses built at the base. Sounds incredible, but Im not sure I would venture over to that region these days with an American passport.
Have you read this interview, with Marianne Ihlen, about her life on Hydra with Leonard Cohen?!
