Built in 2000 by a renowned Swiss architect residing on the island of Tinos, this 650 sq ft. Studio combines the best of several worlds. It is luxurious and spartan at the same time and combines cycladic and modern architecture. It is ideal for a single person, a couple or a small family with one child. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a firplace, bathroom, washing machine and other amenities.
The house is situated in its´ own 10000 sq ft sculpture garden. Scattered amongst the terraced property and its olive, lemon, mulberry and fig trees (feel free to harvest any fruit) are several white marble sculptures, making the house, its trees and sculptures a beautiful arrangement. You´ll discover many shady or sunny spots to read a book, watch the ocean or simply daydream. Enjoy a drink on the terrace at sunset, you can let your eyes wander down the beautiful hillside sweeping down to the valley, then the expansive view of the sea. The house is owned and operated by myself, a musician, and my mother, a sculptor. We have been told that our penchant for the arts shows in our Tinos retreat, and we hope this appeals to you.
The house is within walking distance of Triandaros, a beautiful old village with three restaurants and a bakery. The main town and the beaches are within short driving distance, a car is recommended and can be parked infront of the property.
The island of Tinos is different from other cycladic islands such as Mykonos in that it appeals mostly to Greek travellers visiting the Pangia Evangelistra – the most important chuch of pilgrimage to the Greek Orthodox church. The island therefore has a developed infrastructure, but no mass tourism. Another circumstance that sets Tinos apart from other Greek islands is the fact that it was mainly occupied by the Venetians, not the Turks. This shows in the architecture, cuisine, etc.

Hi! My name is Max, I´m a musician from Berlin, Germany. I own and operate this lovely Tinos studio. It was originally built by my mother, who has been living part-time on the island for nearly twenty years. Whenever we can my mother, my wife and son and myself try to spend time there. Unfortunately, free time is a rarity for us nowadays, and we´d love to share this great vacation spot with other people.
I have traveled to Greece ever since I was a child; Athens, the mainland, the islands... For me, Tinos is the loveliest of them all!
What really sets this apart from other vacation getaways is the unique "air" to the entire property. The garden full of lemon, olive, fig and mulberry trees, the sculptures and the unique architecture should be a blessing for those looking for a vacation outside of typical mass tourism.
