Home to over 60 Cycladic villages, Tinos is the hidden gem of the Greek islands. Villa life is the norm here, and over the years Tinos has attracted a wealth of writers, poets and thinkers, many of who reside here round trip. You’ll be tempted to throw out your return ticket once you spend some time at the pristine beaches, churches and countless Monasteries, most built with local white marble. We recommend waking up in a sugar cube hotel villa to a breath-taking view of the Aegean Sea, followed by a breakfast in the salty air, fragrant with herbal aromas from one of the many local gardens. Afterwards, set out for a quaint village like Volax, the fountains and arches of Kardiani, or relax in Isternia, the balcony of the Aegean.
