Short Description

Architectural Oasis in Unique Landscape of Volax


Re-connect with nature & soak up the magical energy of otherworldly Volax, as you make your way through volcanic boulders to your private architectural retreat. Relax in boho-luxe comfort gazing out to the sweeping lunar landscape surrounding this award winning Modernist gem, you’ll marvel at the peaceful silence of the valley, while a lively village is only 2 minutes from your door. Nearby to world famous Kolimpithra Beach, experience a truly one-of-a-kind vacation on the island of Tinos.


You are booking a self-catering villa so we are not on-site during your stay, nor is this a hotel with staff, but we are keen to ensure your stay is memorable. We will share our personal guidebook and be available via text for any problems that need tending to. Housekeeping during your stay is NOT INCLUDED in the price online but we can arrange it for an additional charge, just message upon booking so we can send you a quote. Likewise, in-home cooking and other services can be arranged for additional fees. Just ask us!


Volax village is home to 2 excellent tavernas, a coffee shop, art galleries, traditional artisans making everything from reed baskets to marmalades to dried local herbs and hand printed artworks. A wonderfully atmospheric village, it is unique for the surrounding lunar-like landscape, rolling hills with views to the sea and warm friendly locals.

Perfectly located between the beaches of Kolimpithra and Livada on the north-west side and the south side beaches of Agios Fokas, Pacchia Ammos and more this is the perfect base for those wanting to connect with nature, local life and the best beaches with ease.


Direct access to your villa and parking for 2 small cars on site. There is an easy, well made road that leads from the village to the house (1 min), we will share exact location details just before your arrival. The village of Volax is only 20min drive from the port of Tinos and downtown area where the supermarkets and pharmacies etc are located. There is no mini-market in the village so you will definitely need a rental car. While the village is centrally located on the island, about 20mins from the main attractions in all directions, nothing is really far on this ‘little big island’. Amazing walking trails surround the area and adventurous souls can hike to nearby villages and beaches to enjoy this truly special location and get away from it all – but take care of the season. In the summer, the island’s temperatures get well into the late 30’s so the comfort of an air conditioned car is a must to get to local beaches Kolimpithra and Livada.

Desert lovers seeking Joshua Tree vibes will instantly fall in love with the unique landscape of Volax. Use the magnetic energy to recharge, and reset your intentions for the next chapter as the glowing summer sunsets make way for the glittering night skies above our majestic valley. Zero light pollution delivers incredible night skies and no matter the season, a cocktail at sunset is a favourite way to entertain both ourselves and our friends.

The home is the work of Aristides Dallas Architects, and has been featured by Maison de Campagne magazine, Architecture Daily, Opumo Magazine’s “Modern Masterpieces” feature, Design Boom and The Greek Foundation.

Built sensitively into the boulders on the property, architecture buffs will immediately recognise the Palm Springs design elements perfectly suited to this location. Huge glass sliding doors open on both sides of the living pavilion, connecting you to the beautiful valley on one side, and your private internal courtyard on the other. Natural breezes flow gently throughout the house keeping it naturally cool all summer long but AC is also installed if you need it.

Designed for relaxed indoor/outdoor living, you’ll enjoy multiple outdoor lounging options; from a hammock in the rocks, to loungers and umbrellas situated around the property’s terraced grounds, to the comfy courtyard lounge area with a professional grade BBQ perfect for evening cookouts with friends, old and new. Grab some produce from the daily farmers market in the port, local meat or fish and cook it all using the Tinian delicacies you bought in the village street market – Tinos is revered for its naturally organic produce so no matter what you cook, it will taste amazing!

Don’t feel like cooking? Just ask us to arrange our private chef for a memorable farm to table experience you’ll be raving about long after your vacation is over, or wander into the village and eat at either of the 2 excellent tavernas.

Sleeping quarters offer rare levels of privacy in a house of this size. Separated across 2 x sleeping pavilions on opposite sides of the property, each with their own private secure entrance and outdoor terraces, groups can easily maintain privacy while enjoying the convivial atmosphere of the shared living spaces. The East Wing contains a 2 storey pavilion with 1 x Queen Sized bedroom on an open mezzanine level upstairs (please note there is no wall separating this room from the other bedroom on the ground floor) and 1 x Double Sized bedroom on the floor below. The bathroom is on the ground floor attached to the bedroom. This downstairs bedroom includes 2 x wardrobes, a large desk area and Mac computer available for guest use. The upstairs bedroom includes access to the rooftop terrace with incredible views to the surrounding valley, a desk and drawers. This bedroom has a giant 75” Smart TV loaded with Netflix and is perfect for movie nights.

The West Wing contains 1 x Queen Sized bedroom with walk in robes and bathroom, double height ceiling, a desk and a private terrace with hammock.

The Boulder House is the perfect fusion of wabi sabi and modernist design, featuring all the comforts of city living while retaining a deep connection to the surrounding valley and all its natural beauty. It has been lovingly designed for relaxed entertaining with a large wooden dining table that seats up to 8 people, a spacious kitchen fully loaded with everything the passionate home cook could hope for (fancy some freshly sliced prosciutto?
