XINARA HOUSE

Xinara House is a classic Cyclades stone-built house from the 17th-18th centuries, with decorative marble fanlights and plasterwork. In the 1800s it was the home of Cyclades Bishop Ioannes Kollaros (the house bears his coat of arms). Tinos has local marble with exceptional skilled workers who made the floors, tables and even solid-marble basins for the bathrooms and kitchen. Traditional island pebble-patterns are laid on terrace. The exterior is painted with natural limewash to which is added 'loulaki' (old-fashioned laundry blue) in time-honoured fashion. Outside are old mulberries (silk was produced at the house), walnuts, almonds and fruit trees. Our vines are an ancient and unique variety.
