Traditional house Langada

Traditional house Langada

We finally made it to Patmos island this summer! We had the chance to spend two amazing nights at the Traditional house Langada and discover the beautiful and peaceful area of upper Kampos. These pictures were taken in the terrace of the Traditional house Langada overlooking Kampos beach.

The traditional house Langada belongs to Nicoletta Houses.

Nicoletta says:

“In 1971, my mother, Dolly Kontogianni, set her foot for the first time at the port of Patmos island. It was love at first sight. She was immediately captivated by the island’s special energy. She soon found a plot in Chora, the island’s medieval capital, where she was planning to build a typical Chora mansion. Dolly was a restless spirit and loved houses! She never stopped exploring the island’s houses and plots until she discovered the 40-acre estate “Langada”.

There was a farmhouse in ruinous condition, which had developed during the centuries, around a small chapel and a central patio. As it can be read on the chapel’s lintel, it was built in 1698. It is said that the chapel and the room next to it had been used by generations of monks of the St John monastery, who wished to lead an ascetic mode of life and cultivate the land. The estate belonged to 30 heirs. As you can imagine, the buying process was very complicated.

Dolly finally managed to acquire the property in 1973. She slowly started restoring the house, strictly following the traditional building techniques and architectural style. She was fully dedicated in this project which lasted 5 years. Since then, we have spent numerous summer and easter holidays with friends and family.”

We are currently going through the third, maybe fourth, fifth (oh,I’ve lost the count) lockdown in Vienna. I had photos in my hard drives that were waiting for me to edit them. I don’t know why I kept them for so long there. Last night I decided to have a look on what is left unedited and to finally go though the process: edit, select and publish! The shops in Vienna will open next Monday and I can’t wait to buy an external Hard Drive because those I have are all full!

It was 2018 when we visited Blue Sand boutique Hotel and Suites in Folegandros for the first time. You can see my blog post from that first visit here. Two years passed by. We felt an urge to go back, so this September we did.

Back to Blue Sand

Blue Sand boutique Hotel and Suites never stop to surprise us and never fail to meet our greatest expectations! Although it was our second visit, there were new things to explore and new memories to be made. For instance, one day during our stay, the team of the hotel organized a private boat tour for us. We swam in crystal clear waters and explored countless secret coves and beaches that were only accessible by boat. The yacht can be privately chartered for a day or half day, so consider this activity if you plan to visit Folegandros island.

One night we stayed at the luxury Bohemian villa of Blue Sand. It is called Makarias villa and it is located in the more quiet area of Ano Meria. This villa is perfect for those who would like some more privacy when staying in Folegandros, combined with great rustic Folegandros design and beautiful views.

Despite the global pandemic that has affected the tourism industry severely, and despite the fact that it was September (low season for Greek summer), Blue Sand was fully booked, which is a proof of how amazing this place is and what good work Katerina and her team do at Blue Sand.

Crossroads Inn

Crossroads Inn

Our holiday took a pleasanlty unexpected turn last July, when my travel buddy and I have been invited to spend a few wonderful days in one of the Traditional Lodgings of Crossroads Inn. 

Crossroads Inn Tinos island Greece Cyclades

Tinos Island has 48 villages and one of them is Tripotamos. The countryside boutique hotel we stayed at, Crossroads Inn, is located within the traditional village of Tripotamos. A village filled with arches, arcades, steps, cobbled alleys and both traditional and modern houses.

Sophia Passa, the daughter of the owner Mrs. Urania Diamantopoulou, welcomed and led us to our new home. Firstly, she explained us all the health protocols and important measurements that she integrated and apply with great respect & responsibility against COVID-19. We immediately felt calm, cherished and safe. Later on, she gave us her best concierge tips for an amazing stay on Tinos, one of the most deliciously unspoiled islands in the Cyclades.

We spent 4 unforgettable days at this family-run inn. We rented a car to explore the island. During the day we explored the villages, the beaches, and the restaurants that Sophia had recommended to us and every evening we were driving back home to enjoy the panoramic views of the Aegean Sea from our open-air Cycladic veranda.

I can highly recommend Crossroads Inn to those who would like to experience the charm of living the local life in a Cycladic village in the heartland of Tinos.

Infinity view Tinos island

The Viennese Girl photography blog travel lifestyle

I spent 3 weeks in July on the Greek islands. This is my first blog post from this adventure. I didn’t have the time to post anything before. August was very busy. I went to Hungary and then to France, and at the same time I was working on 2 extra projects. 

In July I visited 3 Greek islands: Crete, Hydra and Tinos island. Infinity view hotel in Tinos island was the last hotel I visited during this Greek island hopping. Infinity view is a brand new all-Suite Luxury Hotel and I was lucky and privileged to spend a few relaxing days in July here. You can’t imagine how much I enjoyed everything: the beach in front of the hotel, breakfast, my balcony, the infinity sea views from everywhere you look, the pool. The hotel is also very close to Tinos Town, so you can easily reach the Town on foot. Everything about the Infinity view hotel was truly exceptional and so tremendously relaxing! I hope you have the chance to visit it one day too.

Enjoy the photos. As always, I let them do the talking!
