Vogue review of Xinara House

October 2023  Country life UK Xinara House is a former bishop's residence. Hence in a village of the same name, close to the centre of the island - and it has a certain e ne sais quoi that makes it impossible not to love. It might be the bohemian interiors, outstanding art collection (Andy Warhol; Dan Hillier), the terraced garden with its Venetian stone dovecote, cacti beds and miniature vineyard or the beautiful mountain to the house's rear.

March 2021 Travel + Leisure magazine: Experience - sun, sea and soil Xinara House:  A former bishop’s residence in the tiny, heart-achingly beautiful village of Xinara. Restored by a charming British designer-artist couple named Peter and Susan Marston, the property is situated at the foot of Exomvourgo and close to Chora, as the main town on most Greek islands is known, and, more importantly, its wineries. I sampled a bottle of Kalathas by Xinara’s rock-cut swimming pool— which overlooks the hill where the Marstons have also planted a few of their own vines, intended for the 2022 house rosé.
