Welcome to Hotel Bratsera in Hydra

Hydra is a small rocky island in the Argosaronic Gulf, one of the most cosmopolitan islands in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the easiest of the Greek islands to get to/from the Athens International airport.

The town of Hydra built around the old harbor, is a preserved natural monument and the fact that has escaped the modern development, that all kind of vehicles are prohibited and the unspoiled nature surrounding it, makes it an ideal location for unforgettable calm and relaxing vacations.

“Bratsera” was a popular word by Greek sponge divers of the last century, being the mother ship where they relaxed after solitary hours in the sea. The references are obvious when choosing a hotel under the name “Bratsera” for your vacation.

The sponge factory established by Nickolaos Verneniotis in 1860 has been lovingly restored and turned into one of the most charming small hotels in Greece.

The building of the historic Hotel Bratsera stretches around a peaceful garden with a lovely pool, that seems to have come out of a fairytale. It is only 2 minutes away from the vibrant harbor, and also in a straight line from the harbor where the hydrofoils are stationed.

The architect of the hotel was awarded a EUROPA NOSTRA diploma in 1996 for his specific work of restoring the Bratsera.

The Hotel itself has also been awarded in 2018 as “BEST GREEK HISTORIC RESORT”.
