Tinos Island, Cyclades, Greece
Diles & Rinies is situated in a peaceful area with breathtaking views to the Aegean sea and the nearby islands (Mykonos, Dilos, Rinia & Siros), yet just 4 km away from the port/town of Tinos Island and a 5 min drive to Agios Fokas sandy beach. During your stay at Diles & Rinies Villas, you will realize the special brightness of light and the elements of peacefulness & energy that prevail in our location. Looking directly opposite to Dilos Island, it’s easy to find an explanation, thinking of the story of Apollo’s birth on Dilos. According to Ancient Greek mythology, Apollo was the God of light and the sun, he was also associated with healing, harmony, music and balance and he was born on Dilos with his twin sister Artemis, the moon-goddess. Nowadays, the sun exposure of this broader area is considered to be one of the greatest in the world and Dilos is one of the most worth visiting historical and archaeological sites in Greece. Local fishermen call the island complex of Dilos, nearby Rinia and surrounding small rocky islands “Diles”, hence the name of our Estate, “Diles & Rinies”.
