It was originally built back in 1750 and we rebuilt it with an industrial – traditional character. Started out as a bakery for galettes (very hard bread that the sailors used to buy because it would last a couple of years and you needed to soak it in water in order to be eatable), Hydra was a known commercial harbor, ships, fishing and sponge boats would buy food supplies for their long journeys.
The walls are the original stone walls with the chestnut wood pieces in between (traditional architecture of the time f.e. to protect from earthquakes) and the ground floor ceilings have the original chestnut beams and softwood planks. Our grandfather was a well known construction builder and his nickname was “Mastoris”. He has been, and still is, our inspiration in every step of our project.
Because of our great history we look forward to an amazing future. In order to respect the history and to protect the future please help us recycle and reduce
