Accommodation on Tinos Island, Greece

Tinos, a rising star of the Aegean with great beaches, amazing landscapes, good food and much to explore, is easy to reach yet far from mass tourism. At the centre of a traditional island village, Xinara House is an ancient whitewashed house beneath the astounding Exomvourga mountain.

A short drive drive from the house are beaches and restaurants. Tinos Port with all kinds of facilities and a market is 7km away. All around are pretty villages, ancient walkways, and even climbing nearby. Within easy sailing distance are deserted islands, the sophisticated Cyclades capital on Syros, party island Mykonos and the important mythological and archaeological island of Delos.

Xinara House is at the heart of tiny Xinara; a cluster of old houses along a car-free road with several churches, a village amphitheatre, two old open-air laundries, and the Catholic Cyclades offices with an important historical library.

Xinara House is available to book in whole or in part, with daily service and local support for information and to arrange activities. Prices vary widely depending on your choice of accommodation and the time of year.

Tinos Island is easily reached by daily ferry from Mykonos (15 - 30 minutes) or Athens (2-4 hours) where there are international airports. We will meet you off the ferry and can help rent a car.
