10'480 - 21'750 euros/weekAvailability & Pricing
Nestling into a rocky headland above the sea on the west coast of Tinos, Enyalos is very much at one with its habitat. Walls in local stone emerge discreetly, as if an ancient extension of the terrain, but step over the threshold and one enters a world of refined contemporary luxury. Imbued with a warm, mellow atmosphere, the expertly designed, beautifully appointed interiors offer serene living and a sensation of complete tranquillity.
Inside: accommodation at Enyalos is spread over a main house and a guesthouse, both of which are on one level.
The main house is laid out in the shape of a U oriented directly towards the sea. The communal areas sit at the base of the U and the bedrooms extend along the sides.
The main house entrance leads into a generously proportioned open-concept communal space that has been finished to exacting standards. To the right is a sleek, well-equipped contemporary kitchen with matt black cabinetry, and an adjacent guest WC. In the centre is a dining table, and to the left is the living area, furnished with a pair of designer sofas and featuring a stylish fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases.
The design elements of this space are many, and their combined effect is ravishing: dark hard-wood flooring runs horizontally to create the illusion of widened space; a skylight above the kitchen (reprised in other rooms), together with subtle integrated lighting, infuses the ambience with a soft, harmonious aura; and a gentle earthy palette adds to the overall sensation of tranquillity. The masterstroke, however, is the wall of sliding pocket windows that looks out over the pool to the sea. In theory, these windows delimit the interiors, but a rectangular extension following the lines of the living area's ceiling, walls and floor protrudes some two metres beyond, creating a telescopic effect that frames the views, funnels them inside and conjoins the indoor and outdoor spaces.
A door on one side of the kitchen opens into a little vestibule, off which is the laundry room and the first bedroom, a double with en-suite shower room and access to the side terraces.
Doors on either side of the living room, meanwhile, lead into two more double bedrooms, both of which have en-suite shower rooms, sea views and access to the terraces flanking the pool.
The guesthouse is situated on slightly higher ground up the hill behind the main house. Its façade in local stone mirrors that of its sister, but inside things are somewhat different (though of no lower quality or aesthetic appeal). Polished grey concrete floors run throughout, raw concrete ceilings alternate with white-washed wood-beamed ones, and most of the walls are clad in milky-grey stone.
The guesthouse entrance leads from a shady terrace into a central living area, off which the rest of the accommodation flows. To one side is a generously proportioned suite with double-twin bedroom, a large en-suite shower room, and a sea-view sitting room with sofa bed and access to the surrounding terraces.
On the other side of the central living room, the space flows into a little hallway, off which is a well-equipped kitchen with skylight, a shower room, and the second bedroom, a double with sea views and access to the terraces.
Outside: the main house's al fresco areas are an integral extension of the interiors. Accessed directly from the living area and two of the bedrooms, and following the lines of the U, a pair of shaded sea-view terraces with secluding stone walls runs out towards the sea. One is home to a comfortably furnished sitting area, the other to a convivial dining area with outdoor kitchen.
At the centre of this veritable oasis is the wonderful infinity pool, whose slender form reaches out to the sparkling waters of the Aegean.
The guesthouse has also been designed with carefree outdoor living in mind. Running along its sea-facing façade outside the living room is a shaded sitting and dining area. The double bedroom flows out onto its own little terrace, while the sitting room of the suite accesses part of the front terrace. To one side of the house is a secluded outdoor kitchen, while to the other, outside the kitchen, is a little courtyard.
Between and around the two houses the gardens are planted with low-lying Mediterranean shrubs with some areas left in their natural state.
