Very nice villas with fantastic view of the sea. And Kostas (the owner) is a very helpful guy. I recommend this place.
Cet endroit est parfait si vous désirez vous relaxer dans un cadre idyllique. Kostas le proprio est aimable et serviable. De plus le resto/plage privée prés des villas est trés agréable. Si vous louez une voiture demandé a Kostas, il vous présentera une agence de location très pratique et serviable en face de embarcadère des bateaux (Pratique pour l'arrivée et le départ). Vous ne regretterez pas votre séjour en réservant une de ces villas.
We were fortunate enough to stay at Villa Areti in late September and early October 2017 as two adults and three children, all under 4. We would recommend this rental unit to other families interested in visiting Tinos and staying off the beaten track.
The home itself was very spacious with 3 large bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the main floor. There is also a complete suite in the basement to accommodate even more people. The kitchen is fairly well stocked. There was a dishwasher (which is cruicial!) and gas stove. The highlight of the house is no doubt the stunning patio encircling the home with outstanding views of the Tinos hillsides, the beautiful Aegean and even to other islands. Syros is particularly beautiful lit up at night across the water. We came to expect nightly sunsets that easily ranked amongst the most colourful and beautiful in the world. Thanks to its location on a small rocky promontory, the home is essentially surrounded by water. There is a small beach easily accessed by walking down a short trail featuring a combination of sand and the most diverse and striking array of smooth rocks imaginable. It makes for fantastic family beachcombing adventures. Nearby, though not right on the property, there is also a fabulous sandy beach with a lovely, authentic taverna. There are two more homes located on the same small promontory, but they do not obstruct the views from Villa Areti at all and it was very quiet throughout our stay. Wifi was quick and reliable.
Tasos was very responsive and accommodating. He was able to source a bedrail for our middle daughter to give us piece of mind at night. He also ensured that the fridge was stocked with basic essentials to make our arrival easy. We were met at the ferry dock by Stavros, one of the neighbours, who was most gracious and welcoming.
There was a lot to explore on Tinos and all the amenities we needed were close at hand. Tinos town feels authentically Greek rather than touristy. We enjoyed travelling to the small towns in the mountains including especially Pyrgos (and its Museum of Marble Crafts) and Volax. We also explored the restaurant scene and would recommend both O Ntinos and To Thalassaki. Both are a bit difficult to access via windy roads, but that was part of the adventure!
The home is at the end of a fairly long dirt road so a sturdy vehicle is helpful. For the last 5 days of our stay it was extraordinarily windy, which may be a seasonal phenomenon to bear in mind.
