Uncover the hidden secrets of the lesser known Tinos Island with a stay at this pretty windmill in the Cycladic region. With sun-drenched villages and secluded sandy bays, it is a beautiful island that is well off the tourist trail. Its exquisite landscape is home to a rich, Greek culture and includes pristine churches and crystal sea waters.
Windmill House is a lovely whitewashed property that has an exclusive position on the south of Tinos Island. Overlooking the golden sands of Stavros Bay, it has a spectacular vantage point just moments from the sea. Its wrap-around veranda offers mesmerising views and is perfect for embracing those lazy summer days. Its spherical exterior is also iconic to see and has a quirky charm full of mystery and intrigue.
The windmill dates back as far as the 17th century and has now been lovingly renovated with traditional furnishings. Its crisp white walls are minimalist and sleek, while its sea-blue window frames add a hint of coastal chic. The ground floor has a cosy kitchen-diner with a two-burner hob and a rustic built-in dresser. A small dining table makes it ideal for a family meal, while its original stone floor adds to its classic-feel.
From here, you can climb the spiral staircase up to the first floor where you’ll find a unique master bedroom with a modern en-suite bathroom. Uncluttered and simple yet comfy and warm, it is a gorgeous room that has views to die for. Follow the winding stairs all the way to the top and you’ll even find a second floor where you can really spread out. Ideal for the kids or as an additional living space, it has enough room for up to three single beds.
Beyond your tranquil veranda and your cliff-front position there is plenty to discover in the local area. The centre of Tinos town is just a short walk away and has a myriad of characterful cobbled streets lined with tavernas and restaurants. Head further along the coast or inland to the misty mountains and you’ll find more than 40 picturesque villages with stunning architecture. Famous for their intricate marble work and idyllic churches, the villages each have their own culture and charisma.
If you don’t want to venture far from your sea-view veranda then you can always sit back and enjoy the scenic backdrop. With crimson sunsets and sparkling waters, you can relax in blissful surroundings.
