It is a traditional 19th-century stone dove house, 300 meters from the picturesque village of Triantaros. It is located on an estate full of olive trees, seated on the rock and with its unique companionship the pigeons and the running waters of the spring that pass underneath!

The space
Socrates' pigeon house was built with great effort and love to initially house the island's pigeons.It is now a country house that provides peace, tranquility and comfort, keeping intact the unique architecture of Tinos that my ancestors gave it.All the lockers that served for the entrance of the pigeons remained offering natural lighting to the space, and those stone ones that nested young lovebirds, remind us that happiness hides in the simple joys of life.

On the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen, a living room with the possibility to sleep - upon request - another visitor on the built sofa and a spacious bathroom!A staircase leads to the upper floor which is the bedroom and for security reasons it is advisable to close the hatch while you are in it.The courtyard of the dovecote has a unique view of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding villages and will definitely be the place you will spend most of your day!

Where you’ll be

Triantaros, Greece

The Socrates' pigeon house is located at the bottom of Triantaros, a village 7km away from the town and the port of Tinos, with the first reference to the 16th century, but with indications that it has existed since the Middle Ages (around 1000 AD).

The unique view of Tinos and the surrounding islands, as well as the respect to the traditional architectural elements, are the two main characteristics of the village.
Vrysi (in the upper village) and Xinari (in the lower village) are the two traditional wells of Triantaros.The springs with poplars are also a point of reference, while in the square of Xinari part of the old traditional olive press is preserved.

For the lovers of nature and hiking there are countless paths to explore.From Triantaros start the two torrents that end up in Gyrla and Agia Paraskevi creating lush ravines adorned by the unique architecture of Tinos dovecotes, while in the wider area there were windmills and water mills that were gradually abandoned or turned into houses.

In Triantaros, as in the neighboring villages of Two Villages (1.5km) and Arnados (2.5km) , you will find traditional taverns and cafes.
At a distance of 4-6 km you can swim in the beaches of Lychnaftia, Pachia Ammos, Agios Sostis, Agios Ioannis Porto,Agios Fokas, while the beautiful beaches of Livada, Santa Margarita and Kolimbithra are not far away.
