The little stone Stable (Keli)
The Keli is a project very dear to us, it is the transformation of a more than 150 year old agricultural building into a suggestion of modest sustainable living. It is situated at the upper corner of our plot and features a very detached private setting. Sitting at the terrace you can enjoy the island landscape, the view to the sea and the peace and quiet of nature. The house atmosphere is warm; it is designed to be comfortable, light and sunny, and has a fully equipped kitchen with oven to cook a proper meal. Special care was given to create an alternative sustainable experience keeping all the constructional elements of the past. The keli has its own system of rainwater collection, filtration of waste water through a reedbed system and reuse of water for irrigation, closing the loop of the water cycle. It has a state of the art dry compost toilet minimizing even more water consumption. It is a fully eco choice and an alternative experience worth to live.

The little stone stable has its unique traditional architecture and warm atmosphere of the past which captures you immediately. It consists of two separate rooms one bedroom with a double bed and one kitchen area with a sofa which is big enough to sleep one more person. There is also a small sofa in the bedroom that can sleep one child. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas oven, fridge and all the necessary utensils to cook and prepare food. The bathroom is outside protected with reeds and pergola and has a hot shower, a state of the art compost toilet and an outdoor sink. The kitchen and bedroom opens to a terrace with outdoor furniture and dining table. The house is facing east with a spectacular view to the sea and the sunrise! It has its own entrance and parking area right next to it and a fully grown herb garden in front of it.
There is a vegetable and herb garden as well as a Greenhouse where we cultivate totally organic and produce all seasonal vegetables and herbs which the guest has access to at a special price and there is a communal barbeque and outside kitchen area which is shared between the three houses.
There is a communal washing machine in the Utility room next to the houses which is also for the guests to use.
Around the plot there are beautiful nature trails through the terraces that lead down to the beaches or up to the mountains. The nearest village with shops and restaurants is Steni 2km away, where there is also public transport to and from 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 to limited destinations. Tinos is a big island (200 square kilometers), more than 100 villages and lots of nice beaches to visit, so renting a car is worthwhile. Some 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, a 20 minute walk downhill.
