With Aristides Dallas — one of Greece’s most celebrated architects — at the helm of the project, Design Hotels is all set to launch Pnoēs Tinos, its latest Greek utopia. The three-villa property, located on the the sparsely populated island of Tinos in Greece, is carefully designed in a way that it blends perfectly into the landscape.

Natural splendour, organic gardens, stunning nearby beaches, and an island of traditional villages await at this luxury haven. The three light-flooded, airy white structures are designed as modern cubes, each featuring a private pool and garden, two bedrooms, and a hammam-style bathroom.

What’s so special about Pnoēs Tinos

Stone walls and lime-washed surfaces play off minimal steel, wood details, and broad airy openings. Additionally, expect to see artworks by the famed artist Alexandra Papadimoulis adorning the walls, turning each of them into a small gallery. Nature plays a special role at Pnoēs Tinos — the private gardens bring the Mediterranean landscape right into the houses, the herbs from onsite farms can be found at breakfast table alongside local products, and the breathtaking location invites guests to take long walks or go for a swim in secluded bays.

Where is Pnoēs Tinos located

Just a half-hour ferry ride from Mykonos, the largely untouched island of Tinos is a wild wonderland, perfect for a getaway from Greece’s bigger destinations. You will find yourself amidst villages of beautiful marble sculptures such as Pyrgos, abandoned marble quarries, and towers of the raw stone creating a unique geological profile.
