THE BIG STONE HOUSE
The big stone house is the lower one to the right. It faces east with a view to the sunrise from the sea! The two houses are completely independent, separated by the Utility house in the middle terrace and with different orientation, preserving their privacy.
The house is built completely out of local stone, from local stone workers using the traditional technique that has been preserved on Tinos. The atmosphere in the houses is warm and alive!

The big stone house has two separate bedrooms; one with a double bed and one with a twin bed. In addition the kitchen sofa is a normal size single bed that sleeps one more person in the communal area. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas oven, fridge and all necessary utensils to cook a proper meal. There is one bathroom with shower, and basic essentials such us organic soaps and shampoos are offered. The kitchen opens to the big terrace in front of the house with garden sofas and dining table. There is also a smaller terrace on the south bedroom side.
There is a vegetable and herb garden with seasonal vegetables and herbs which the guest has access to and there is a communal barbeque and outside kitchen area which is for both houses to use.
There is a communal washing machine and iron in the Utility room next to the houses also for the guests’ use.
Around the plot there are beautiful nature trails through the terraces that lead you down to the beaches or up to the mountains. The nearest village with shops and restaurants is Steni 2km away, from where there is also public transport to Tinos. In general if you want to explore the island a car is essential. Public transport is not so good with only a few buses with limited destinations. Tinos is a big island (200 square kilometres), more than 100 villages, and lots of nice beaches to visit, so renting a car is worthwhile. Rental companies from which you can rent online are ‘Dimitris rent a car’ and ‘Vidalis rent a car’.
The area is a unique forested area with oak trees, by a stream with big platanus and a lot of vegetation, very unusual for Tinos and the Cyclades in general. It is surrounded by rural terraced land with olive trees, lemon trees and other fruit trees, small stone stables for the sheep and pigs, pigeon houses and small churches. Its totally unspoiled and pure. The plot orientation is East so the sun rises directly from the sea! There are two beautiful beaches only 2km away; Santa Margarita and Lychnaftia which are a 20 minute walk downhill.
