Like many of the Greek Islands, Ios Island is full of sugar-cube shaped houses, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, and of course, rich history. What makes this Time & Place destination unique is the parties during the summer!
Ios is well known for being the “party island” where the locals are friendly and the special events last long into the early morning. For a particularly busy party schedule try visiting during the Swedish Midsummer – an event around the summer solstice every year, and don’t worry, you don’t even have to be Swedish to enjoy in the festivities. It just happens that the solstice is the official start of high season.
Not interested in the party scene? Then maybe schedule your visit for any season other than the summer since this beautiful destination is peaceful and relaxing during the rest of the year.
This island is also rich in history and culture. There are as many churches on this island as there are days in the year (365), each and every one individually gorgeous. Visit the quaint towns of Chora, Pano Kambos, Koulida, and more. Explore out the ancient ruins where the poet Homer is claimed to be buried.
Ios is a very small island, but it will absolutely win you over in a big way! Contact Time & Place’s reservation department to start planning your next exciting escape to Ios. We can help you find the ideal luxury vacation home rental to suit your party size and style.
