About the neighbourhood
Ios is an island of outstanding natural beauty. The breathtaking views, the energizing meltemi breeze, the brilliant sunshine, the cool sensation of seawater on the skin, all invigorate our senses and make us feel rejuvenated. Here at On The Rocks we want to protect nature's beauty and preserve the scarce resources for generations to come without compromising our guests’ comfort. We generate as much energy as we use from our solar panels. We collect and recycle thousands of litres of rainwater a year We treat our effluent on site. We have planted over a thousand shrubs. It is our belief that we should do our utmost to protect the environment as best we can and we are grateful for your support and understanding in achieving our goal.
How to get there
The nearest airports are Santorini and Crete and there are daily ferry crossings from both islands to Ios. Alternatively you can fly to Athens and take the early morning ferry. The transfer from the port of Ios to the villas is complementary.
