[cl_heading title=”Life on Tinos Island, Cyclades-Greece” text_align=”center”][cl_heading title=”Tinos – the best kept secret of the Cyclades” type=”h3″ text_align=”center”]

You will find this truly ”Greek ” island ideal for your holiday because you can  combine culture, swimming, walking, sightseeing and numerous other activities.

Tinos is a particularly interesting island because, except for the main port and its town there are about 40 beautiful villages that are worth visiting.  There are museums and cultural events and wonderful paths for walking and hiking.

Of course there are many beaches but it is also a beautiful island to visit at times other than the summertime.




For those of you who enjoy different cuisines there are many restaurants with delicious traditional Greek food.

Tinos is very easy to get to from the ports of Rafina and Pireas and is also close to many other Greek islands so the location enables you to do some island hopping.

Some of the near by islands are Mykonos, Andros, Paros, Milos, Naxos and a little further away Santorini.

For those of you who enjoy different cuisines there are a plethora of restaurants and taverns with delicious traditional Greek food.


  • Village of Ktikados and taverna Lefkes. Combine a beautiful walk with a nice meal. All their dishes are excellent and the view is fantastic.
  • Village of Steni and taverna Platanos. This taverna has the best louza on the island which is a Greek delicassy that can compare to prosciutto.
  • Restaurant Bourou and fish taverna Angira which are at the the port (just a few minutes by car from the house).

Tinos is a wonderful place for walking. Traditional mule paths, some dating from Classical times, criss-cross the island and open up unexpected views of the magnificent landscape. They lead to lonely beaches, remote mountain scenery, secret valleys and many unspoiled hamlets.
If you want to strike out on your own, the trails are easy to find. All the villages on the island are connected by paths. Ask the locals for directions – older people especially are always happy to tell you where the trails start and where they go. Villages are never far from each other. You can easily visit more than one in a day. Round trips from the main town of Tinos are easy using buses and taxis for the return.
Or, if you prefer, you can join an organized walking tour led by an English and German speaking qualified guide. For further information contact us.
