VI. The Dovecote

LAYOUT - A truly exceptional accommodation experience in an architectural monument! Dovecotes are the most characteristic traditional edifices of Tinos. These constructions are found in a few Cycladic islands and most of them are located at the island of Tinos. The Tinian dovecotes are also the most impressive ones, decorated with geometrical patterns, are expressions of local artistic creation and therefore are architectural monuments unique in the world.

The Dovecote of Tinos Habitart is a three floor residence (90 sq m), with traditional and island chic style, that can host 5-6 guests. In the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen, a living room with fireplace and a dinning room. The first floor has a bathroom and two bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with a full size bed). The second floor has a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a veranda with panoramic view of the Aegean Sea. The dovecote also has a cobblestone yard with a breakfast table where guests can enjoy the sea view.
