Xinara House, a beautifully restored former bishop's home in the heart of rural Tinos

Staying at Xinara House

A bowl of just-picked figs still warm from the sun; shadows dappling across ancient stone tracery, the aroma of fresh coffee, and that inevitable holiday dilemma - which of the peaceful terrace gardens to choose for a lazy snooze in the sun. Welcome to Xinara House.

A beautiful, recently-restored classic Cyclades house in a dazzling setting beneath Exomvourgo mountain. There are original carved marble fanlights and plasterwork combined with modern bathrooms and kitchens. Outside in our private gardens are mature mulberries, walnuts, almonds and fruit trees amongst the terraces where we grow organic fruit and vegetables for our guests.


Xinara House offers home-from-home comforts, has in total five twin/ double bedrooms with bathrooms, plus extra sofa-beds to sleep a maximum of thirteen. It is air-conditioned and heated, with wifi in all main areas and has very drinkable spring water throughout.

Xinara House divides into the HOUSE and the adjoining self-contained converted BLACKSMITHS' (also bookable together: XINARA HOUSE ALL). Any last-minute cancellations are posted on Instagram
