I am used to luxurious holidays and accommodation. Should I forget about luxury in Tinos?
All your basic needs will be covered! You mustn’t perhaps expect luxury in the sense of a 4 or 5-star hotel, in particular when it comes to room service and other facilities. Your holiday in Tinos will have all the simple luxuries that a small Greek island can offer, and we will make sure you enjoy every single one of them! A WiFi Internet connection of course, and any other technological support we need for our photo workshop, cleanness, warm hearted hospitality, good food, and pleasant company. In Tinos you will live the experience offered by the contact with the Greek nature, the abundant light and the clear blue sea, the refreshing wind of the Cyclades and the Greek element of the locals and their habits and traditions.
Can I combine the photo workshop in Tinos with other destinations in Greece? Could you guide me on that?
Of course! What a great idea! It is very easy to get to other Cycladic islands from Tinos in the summer since the ferry connections are very frequent (Mykonos, Andros, Paros, Naxos, Santorini, or even combine a few days of stay in Athens (before or after the P/W). Whatever you’re thinking of doing, we can provide you with advice.
Concerning the Workshop in Tinos, we’ve read that it is usually very windy in August.
Could this make things difficult for the P/W and anything else we have to do on the island?
On the island we are all used to a light breeze which is often beneficial since Greek summers can get very hot. We recommend our visitors to embrace and love this element of the island since it adds to the culture of the island, its way of life, its architecture, and even its agriculture! Tinos’ honey and vegetables are amongst the best in Greece because the wind carries all essences and riches of nature to all cultivations. And do not forget: The weather’s imperfections are often behind some of the best photos!
Can we participate in the workshop in Athens only, without the hotel, and if so, what would be the cost?
Of course you can. The cost for the workshop, excluding the hotel, would be € 750.
