Ten days of peace.
Excellent in early June because neighbouring villas were unoccupied. Sun doesn't shine directly on to terrace but that could be an advantage in high season. Also parking could be tight in mid-summer. No complaints about the property. (The shower holder needs to be changed so it will stay where positioned and if owner wants occupants to clean bathroom during tenancy it would be best to leave cleaning products). Overall very satisfactory. Babis & Jenny very responsive to any requests. We would be happy to return there.
Lovely villa in a great location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this little villa, which is beautifully presented, immaculately clean and well equipped. The terrace has a lovely view of the ocean and is an ideal spot for eating or reading. The location is very quiet but in easy walking distance of a lovely beach which is perfect for swimming. We found 4 good places to eat all within walking distance and set back from the beach. Our favourite was the Byzantio restaurant which also has a beach bar, great quality food and friendly service. It’s possible to walk into Tinos town by following the unmade coast road and path, it takes around 45 mins to reach the Agios Fokas beach area on the outskirts of town, which also has 2 really good places to eat: Marathia Tavern and San to Alati. Communications from Louise, Jenny and Babis were excellent and we were very well looked after. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind but still have the opportunity to eat out this is the perfect place and Tinos is a fabulously unspoilt little island well worth exploring.
Many thanks for your lovely review. We are delighted you had a good holiday and look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you again in one of your future trips.
It was very clean and convenient with a gorgeous view. Louise was so very helpful in helping us to finalize our plans with the ferry and rental car. I highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again the next time I come to Tinos.
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are delighted you had such a good time and look forward to welcome you again to the beautiful Island of Tinos.
Excellent accommodations and location. Tinos is a remarkably island.
Owner and her friends, Jenny and Botis are the best. They add insurmountable benefit to a great property in a wonderful island in Greece.
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are delighted you have enjoyed your stay in the beautiful Island of Tinos and look forward to welcome again in one of your future trips.
We had a great time in Tinos. We arrived on a late ferry, and the caretaker Roxanne's husband met us at the port, guided us to our rental car, and led us to the home. We were so excited as we drove up to find such an iconic Greek look and feel and bougainvillea climbing up the porch. The home was just as advertised inside and out. The view was fantastic. The home was perfectly set up for our family of parents and 3 grown daughters. Our girls stayed downstairs together in the large bedroom with bathroom. We all had plenty of space and privacy.
There is a very nice sandy beach within a 5 - 10 minute walk. There is some natural shade on the beach, but you must get there early in order to claim it. You can also rent chairs and umbrellas at the far end of the beach for only 5 euro/day. There is also a taverna. The water is beautiful and clear, and you don't have to worry about rocks. Although closer to the house there is an access to the water from an enormous rock landing that was fun to visit.
We really enjoyed the mix of beach and Greek culture. There are quite a few traditional Greek villages within 10-60 minutes of the house. We spent several mornings exploring the area followed by lunch in a village cafe and relaxing afternoons on the beach. Note that some of the other beaches on the island are much rockier. We also spent time in Tinos Town. The church is a main focus in town. You can see people crawling up the hill to the church on their knees in reverence. We also took a tour of the local Brewery, and spent a day in Mikonos which is only a 30 minute ferry ride away.
Here are few tips about the house that may come in handy. First, the door latches when it is shut, and even if it isn't locked, you can't get back in because there isn't a knob to turn. I suggest you hide a key or come up with some other fix for this first thing. We made it through about 5 days before locking ourselves out. Roxanne's husband rescued us by zipping over on his moped and letting us back in. Second, although the home provides linens, there weren't any towels to take to the beach. We purchased Turkish towels in town. (If you choose this route, be aware that prices vary widely. We found some starting at 7.50 euro.) Third, after several showers, the bathroom floor gets wet. I was very glad to have brought flip flops.
I highly recommend this home for a nice relaxing or active trip to Greece. We loved spending our time on Tinos.
Gorgeous views, beautiful villa and lovely island!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely villa in Tinos. We were welcomed by Roxanne at the ferry who explained all the ins and outs of the home. We were walking distance to one of the best beaches on the island where we spent a good deal of time. The island has so much to offer so do tour around to all of the villages. Food was excellent everywhere we went! We loved it and hope to return!
The villa is situated next to one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the south side of Tinos Island. It is ideally located near hotels and restaurants, only a short drive from Tinos. Magnificent views of Mykonos, Delos and Syros, can be enjoyed from its large South-facing Terrace.
Fresh fish and traditional Greek dishes are served in the near-by restaurants. Fresh bread and pastries are available at the local bakery every morning. Sun-loungers and umbrellas can be hired at the beach. Tinos town is full of life with many restaurants, shopping streets, paved medieval alleys, traditional coffee shops, bars, and plenty of nightlife for all ages.
Not affected by mass tourism, Tinos has retained its original Greek Cycladic authenticity that is open to be explored by the visitor. The refreshing blue waters of the countless beaches and coves that ornate this beautiful Island, are all awaiting to be discovered; and there are breath-taking views while getting there. You will find little taverns and seaside restaurants offering fresh fish and traditional Greek dishes everywhere you go and the prices are great too!
Apart from the impressive Cathedral and the Cultural Centre in Tinos town, the marble-art museum in Pyrgos, the old Ursuline convent in Loutra; Halepas sculpture exhibition and folklore museums in the villages are well worth a visit. Popular summer festivals at the main square of the villages offer traditional music, wine and dance, where everybody is welcome.
Coach trips around the Island as well as boat trips to the Islands of Andros, Syros, Mykonos, Delos, Paros, Naxos and Santorini,are available on a daily basis.
