How to book a holiday letting in Tilos, Greece
by Teddy Major
The Greek Islands are of a great interests and diverse cultures, influenced by their location, at the junction between the East and the West and by the many occupations endured by the Greek people throughout history.
Tílos has an inverted ‘S’ shape, is about 14.5 km long, north-west to south-east, with a maximum width of 8 km and an area of about 61 km². The island has a mountainous limestone interior, volcanic lowlands, pumice beds and red lava sand, like its north western neighbour Nisyros. It is well supplied by springs, and is potentially very fertile and productive. Its coasts are generally rocky or pebbled, but there are also a number of sandy beaches.
Tilos is a small Greek island in the Aegean sea, 65km north-west of Rhodes bordering Turkey, and is largely unknown even to most inhabitants of its larger neighbours. It has over a dozen beaches and even in August you may have the sea or sand to yourself. Tilos is a must for any keen rambler with excellent walking opportunities, whether it is an all day climb to the Monastery of St. Pandeleimon or a stroll around Livadia Bay. It is also well known for the honey it produces and there is an annual honey festival on 13th August. If you want a get-away-from-it-all chilled out holiday destination without mass tourism, but with good local food and fantastic scenery, Tilos has it all, as well as an all-night bar in an abandoned village (which really is something to behold). Come and see us soon, you’ll be glad you did!
A jewel of an island, home of Irinna, one of ancient Greece’s female poets. Tilos offers a taste of traditional Greece, ideal for those seeking peace and solitude with many fine walks and isolated beaches.
Sample the many fine tavernas and restaurants in Livadia or bathe in the crystal-clear sea of Livadia bay.
Visit Micro Horio, the abandoned village, by day an ideal place for a picnic, with stunning views over to Turkey, by night a Greek music bar open until the early hours in the high season. Study the exhibition of the remains of the pygmy elephants discovered near Megalo Horio or conversely, just laze on the nearby sandy beach of Eristos.
Tilos, a small island with a warm welcome and a wealth of treasures to offer the visitor.
Many travellers return to Tilos Island time after time to experience her unique friendly atmosphere and breathtaking natural beauty.

There are two villages on the island, supported by a population of around 300. Livadia, the principle port on Tilos, is where our office is located. The island’s capital, Megalo Chorio, some 6km inland, nestles at the foot of a Byzantine castle, with breathtaking views along fertile valleys out to Eristos Bay.
A warm welcome awaits you in the tavernas and cafes of this very special island, where yourselves and the islanders provide entertainment.
