In one of the most beautiful parts of the Cycladic Archipelagos, directly opposite the isles of Diles and Rinies lies the eight-villa Estate “Diles & Rinies”. According to the Greek mythology, Apollo, the “God of Light” was born in Diles island, hence the area is believed to have the best light and one of the highest sun exposure in the world. Nowadays, Diles is an archeological park where visitors can only stay during the day, while the island of Rinies offers some of the best sandy beaches in the world.
“Diles & Rinies” Estate is situated only 5 km from Tinos Town and the Port, off the beaten path in a peaceful, sparsely built area. The Estate is situated in an ideal location, offering infinite and breathtaking views of all the nearby islands of Mykonos, Syros, Paros, Diles, Rinies as well as Exomvourgo and Vrekastro, locations of exquisite natural beauty.
Photographs are not enough to give you an overall feeling; they will only help you to create a mental image. The truth is that a big part making this villa irresistible for your holidays lies in other things. Like the cool Northerly wind that browses the island having an exhilarating effect to visitors; your whole tiredness will be gone in 24 hours flat, just because experiencing this wind and the overall effects it has on your body, your mind and your soul. The sound of quietness; or the smells of thyme, oregano and other flowers that grow in abundance around the estate where the villa is and will give you a feeling of rejuvenation and put you in harmony with the place. And finally the views to the Aegean Sea and the nearby islands; those views will glue you on the house’s veranda for hours on end. As the landscape changes colors passing from dawn to full day and then to sunset, you will be sitting there watching the colors of the nearby islands change, thinking that the islands float on the sea, and that this is how it has always been for hundreds or millions of years. Combine this rare spectacle with the light blue sea having white ripples from the small waves rushing away from the island without meaning or purpose, and you might get a fracture of the whole picture on what you should be expecting when you book one of the villas in Diles and Rinies estate in Tinos.
As far as the villa is concerned, everything is set for a great holiday; surrounded by gardens, and traditional stone benches, comfortable (spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen), with large verandas and ample space, will help you and your loved ones make the best out of your holidays enjoying a great experience that will be remembered for many years.
You will be less than one minute walk from the large 15 meter by 7.5 meter swimming pool area where there is space for you to sit and relax at the sitting area nearby on a bamboo bench under the shadow, or on a sunbed, or take a plunge at the large infinity-style pool watching the passing ferries as they cross the sea towards their destination. Some other moments you may wish to attend one of the activities that may be organized, such as Yoga, Zumba, or trecking.
You will be just a 2 minute drive from the nearest beaches where you can enjoy sun tanning or sitting at the trees that grow right on the beach; and you will be a few minutes’ drive from Tinos town. Local villages and famous trails for walking are also very close.
Easy to reach, Tinos island is just 20 minutes away by sea from the International Airport of Mykonos, or 2 hours away by fast boat from the port of Rafina, the closest port to Athens International Airport. Fast Ferries and conventional boats depart regularly from the port of Tinos to the main ports of Athens and to the rest of the Greek Islands, offering visitors an easy access.

Immersed in nature, Diles & Rinies is situated in a peaceful area, only 3km from the town and the port of Tinos Island, a traditional, beautiful island in the heart of the Greek Aegean Sea. Overlooking Dilos Island, it’s easy to think of the story of Apollo’s birth as a way of explaining how this wider region has a long and enduring link with the sun. According to Greek mythology, Apollo was the God of light and the sun and he was also associated with medicine and healing.
The local fishermen call Dilos “Diles” (in Greek: Δήλες). Rinies (in Greek: Ρηνειές) is the island next to Dilos and many people find that it has the some of best beaches in Greece. Dilos is an archeological park and both islands are characterized as Natura protected and are not inhabited.
The Estate is only a 5 minute drive away or 20 minute walking distance from the nearest sandy beach of Agios Fokas and a few kilometres from several unspoiled golden beaches. More than 60 villages all connected by footpaths and with dining places and other small happy discoveries are all within easy reach.
HOW TO REACH US
Easy to reach, Diles & Rinies Estate is 20-25 minutes by boat away from nearby Mykonos International Airport, or 2 hours away by speed boats and 4 hours by conventional boats from the port of Rafina, the port closest to Athens International Airport. Fast ferries and conventional boats depart regularly from the port of Tinos to the main ports of Athens, Piraeus and Rafina and to the rest of the Greek Islands, offering visitors easy access.
A helipad, just 1 km away from the Estate, offers even easier proximity by helicopter. The Estate is 5km from the port of Tinos.

About the owner: Live between Tinos and Athens...counting down the days to visit Tinos again and again.
Why the Owner Chose Tinos: The excellent location and aura, along with the magnificent views made me to fell in love with that place.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Why i personally love this property?
Living in a villa with unlimited views of the Aegean, comfort, privacy and serenity for our vacation.
I enjoy the sunshine surrounded by the aroma of the wildflowers and local herbs.
The elegant decoration is of a simple Mediterranean style with a vintage touch. They are environmentally friendly and carefully crafted to the last detail.I really love this!
The bed linen is made of 100% pure cotton. The sense once i am sleeping is totally relaxing.
I personally plant vegetables, fruits, herbs, olive trees and grapevines in our gardens and grow them using organic methods.
The quietness of the landscape interrupted only by the sound of the “meltemi” breeze.
Spring in Tinos: Spring represents the peak of beauty in Cyclades,
full of flowers and aromas along with magnificent scenery. Love is in the air, so it is an ideal time to enjoy the particular silence and beauty of the island. As it is warm enough but not too hot, you can attempt your first swim in the sea, attend gastronomy courses, visit cheese making farms or even attend a Yoga class by the pool in Diles & Rinies. Average temperatures are between 16-28 °C, days are long, whilst on average it is sunny for 27 days in a month.
The healthy climate of Tinos: The north wind, blowing across the Aegean Sea (known as ‘Meltemi’ in Greek) offers a relief. Lowering the high temperatures of summer, the ‘Meltemi’ makes the climate of Tinos particularly healthy, as it is associated with dry weather, clear skies, a drop in humidity, improved visibility and a rise in atmospheric pressure. After sunset, in the mountains it can become chilly.
The 60 and more picturesque villages of Tinos. I love to walk in their short paths!
