Inspired by the unspoiled and naturalistic allure of Tinos, this calm retreat was built to serve as a peaceful summer sanctuary for a sophisticated couple. It enjoys a fabulous elevated location with views to the bay of Agios Petros, one of the best areas on the island. Dreamy hammocks, retro styling and modern art highlight the ambience here, creating a refined, very laid-back setting.
The villa is an extended version of a pre-existing dovecote charmingly merging modern and heritage elements. A main house and a guest house compile the two existing volumes, with wonderful outdoor terraces extending the living spaces of this lovely retreat. The elevated positioning evokes tranquility and a visual closeness to the surrounding mountain-terrain freckled with live-trees, while the front is blessed with sea-views and shades of blue.
The exterior natural stone facades match the natural setting harmonically and even the pool terrace with its beautiful wooden deck seems aligned with nature. One level down, a serene garden area borders the dovecote and offers a perfect spot for meditation for reading a book or simply taking a dreamy nap on one of the hammocks. Dovecotes are the famed pigeon houses of Tinos and besides expressing their love for the doves, which were considered part of the holy spirit, are also are signs of gracefulness and aristocracy. Dove-cotes are considered ornaments of the Tinian landscape and each and one are artfully different.
And while a strong element of heritage is still prevalent though the dovecote and exterior natural finesse, the interior design and overall styling are remarkably refreshing with Danish retro couches and wonderful modern art, refined colors, minimal lines and wonderful contemporary bathrooms.
This is a fabulous nest not just for divine doves but also for a sophisticated couple or two, who know how to appreciate the beauty of calmness, nature and unpretentious style on an island that is becoming the new hotspot of the Cyclades.
