This beautiful, preserved stone house is located in Tinos, the most artistic of the Aegean islands. It has been fully renovated using its own natural materials (stone, wood and marble). It accommodates 7 persons, with respect to privacy, and it gets you into the unique lifestyle of a small Cycladic village while enjoying fantastic sea views and a high quality accommodation.
The house stands in the traditional village of Triantaros, which is listed in the law protected traditional villages of Greece. Triantaros is well known for its architecture, its healthy dry climate (320m attitude) and its magnificent panoramic sea view. Our village is only 6 km s far from the town-port of Tinos (with frequent bus connections) and near beautiful, clear, sandy beaches. The bus stop is only 50 meters far from the house.
The house is separated to the main (two level) house (125 sq meters) and the guest-house (30 sq meters). The main house has 2 bedrooms. One master bedroom with its own bathroom and a desk to work and a second one with two single beds. It accommodates at least 4 persons. It has a kitchen (fully equipped), a dinning area and a living room with a fireplace. The guesthouse has one bedroom, its own kitchen, a bathroom, a small living room and it accommodates up to 3 persons.
There is a patio, a veranda and 16 windows with magnificent panoramic views to the Aegean Sea and the nearby islands, as also views to beautiful landscapes with traditional pigeon houses and windmills.
The house has a central heating system and it is perfect also for winter stay. Because of the stone and the village’s attitude, it’s cool in the summer – there is no need for air-conditioning. It is beautifully furnished and decorated with a combination of old traditional and modern furniture. There is a flat screen 32 '' TV, a DVD player a radio/CD player and a CD collection - mostly of classical music, opera and jazz. There is also, wireless internet connection and a laptop for the use of the guests.
In Triantaros there are 2 restaurants (both are also open in the winter). The village bakery is near the house and in the morning the air around smells fresh bread and Greek sweet bugatsa! From the bakery you can also buy milk and cookies.
Tinos is one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades complex with a great tradition in Arts - especially in marble sculpture. One of the most famous marble sculptors of the island, Yannis Kyrarinis, is located in our village.
The island has a strong religious tradition. It is one of the most sacred places for Greek Orthodox Christians, while its Catholic Christian Community is one of the most multitudinous in Greece.
The nature of the island is unique, with mountains and wild sea sceneries especially in the northern part. If you like trekking and hiking you will love Tinos!

Raki, capers, olives and extra virgin organic olive oil from our production are at your disposal.

Our family (2 adults and 4 children) loved our time at Irini's house. Irini met us at the house the day of our arrival. She is personable and willing to help in any way possible. The house is comfortable, has everything you could possibly need, and the views of the sea and surrounding hillsides are breathtaking. The village bakery is literally steps away, as is the local taverna. Irini even left some toys for the children. What more could we want?
We spent one week at this house, and we could have easily stayed longer. We felt at home and feel privileged to have been able to stay here.
We already miss this very special "home". We honestly felt as though it was our own house! Situated in a beautiful village ten minutes drive from the center and the beach with breathtaking views of the sea, very cool throughout the day!
Fully equipped with everything that a family might need (plus lots more), spotless and extremely comfortable.
Everything run smoothly during our stay and we feel grateful to the hosts for all the useful information and tips which made our holiday so very enjoyable. Irene and Makis have been excellent hosts ready to help in any way possible.
Notre hôte Irini nous avait donné au préalable toutes les informations nécessaires et son mari Makis est venu nous chercher à l'arrivée du bateau au port de Tinos. Notre arrivée était préparée avec un bon déjeuner. La maison est bien située au centre du village Triandaros, avec une belle vue, une vaste et jolie pièce à vivre et une grande chambre parentale avec un ventilateur. Les autres chambres sont bien pour des enfants. A 50 mètres, la boulangerie du village assure chaque matin de délicieux petits déjeuners. En bref, c'est un lieu de séjour parfait pour découvrir et visiter Tinos, profiter de ses nombreuses plages et et de ses villages qui n'ont rien perdu de leur authenticité. De plus, Irini et Makis sont des hôtes particulièrement aimables et attentifs à apporter immédiatement toutes les informations et l' aide dont on peut avoir besoin.
Irini very kindly met us at the port and drove us to the house about 7 kms above the town. She made us feel very, very welcome and as we didn't hire a car she even gave us a tour of the island including a trip to the supermarket to stock up for the week .
The house is beautiful - stylish, very comfortable and relaxing with superb views to the surrounding villages, countryside and the sea with its distant islands. The cool meltemi winds blowing in through the many open windows meant the temperature was perfect. The property is accurately described and the photographs exactly illustrate the high standard of the house and its facilities [it's very well equipped very much like a real home rather than a holiday home]. We especially appreciated the sensitive use of authentic materials a lovely mix of contemporary and traditional Greek.
We highly recommend Irini and her fantastic house, a perfect place to stay on the beautiful island of Tinos. We hired a car for the last two days which allowed us to explore much further afield. We would love to return as the house and island is a wonderful place to truly relax and enjoy Greece.
Irini's house is the best place we've spent our holiday at so far. From the decor to the location and even the vibes everything was immaculate. My toddler son actually believed it was a castle and he wowed every time he entered a room, every day of our stay. Even the tasteful book and music collection in the house added to the experience.
Irini's communication skills exceeded all expectations with immediate problem solving and tips for the area and the entire island.
I could not recommend this place highly enough and the only downside I can think of is that the pictures cannot possibly capture its glory. We are already checking our diary for going back.
The house is fantastic and with an amazing view on the sea and on the island.
You feel at home at the first second you enter the house.
It's the perfect location to explore the wonderful island of Tinos and you can organize day trip to other islands very easily.
Each morning you can go to the bakery to buy fresh bread and try the nice restaurant in the village.
Tinos is a jewel and Irini's house too!
Irini and Makis are the nicest persons I've met since I m using Airbnb.
Do not hesitate to book the house, otherwise someone will do it before you!
We had a very very good experience in Irini's house. First of all, Irini and Makis are very welcoming and generous persons; they shared their "spots" (best restaurants, etc) on the island; you have the feeling you are welcomed by friends. The house is lovely, charming, confortable, perfectly well restored, with an amazing view. But the most important : you can feel very good vibes in it. We will definitly come back.
Hi, I am Irini.
Journalist, living and working in Athens.
Obsessed with the Greek islands - I believe that Cyclades is the most poetic place in the world!
I love fine art photography, jazz and classical music. I never say no, when I have the chance to travel to London or NYC.
I love Morocco and Italy and I plan to travel north to see the aurora!
I like cooking creative Greek recipes for family and friends.
My moto is: "I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way!".
Looking forward to meeting and hosting you!
