Xinara House, a beautifully converted former bishop's palace in the heart of unsung Tinos

STAYING AT XINARA HOUSE

Picture the scene: a bowl of just-plucked figs still warm from the sun; shadows dappling across ancient stone tracery, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and that inevitable holiday dilemma - which of the beautiful terrace gardens to choose for a lazy snooze in the sun? Welcome to Xinara House where contemporary art is mixed with collectable textiles, exceptional furniture and amazing architecture in a dazzling setting beneath Exomvourgo mountain.

Xinara House is a beautiful, newly-converted classic Cyclades stone-built house from the 17th-18th centuries. There are original carved marble fanlights and plasterwork. Tinos has local marble and highly-skilled workers who made new floors, tables and even solid-marble basins for the bathrooms and kitchen. Traditional island pebble-patterns are laid on terraces. The exterior is re-painted in natural limewash. Outside in our private gardens are mature mulberries, walnuts, almonds and fruit trees amongst the terraces where organic fruit and vegetables are grown for our guests.
