10/10 will come to Ios again just to stay in Villa Mata!
Lambros is an amazing host. I would just end it there but people probably want details :) Lambros was waiting for us at the port with a big sign and a huge smile, the perfect welcome to the island. He showed us the short walk to his hotel (5 minutes if you're a slow walker) and we couldn't believe how beautiful his hotel was! Grape vines and fig trees surrounded the hotel and there is a cute area to sit with tables and chairs downstairs. Our room was upstairs and was much bigger than we thought! We had our own bathroom, balcony with a table and chairs and a sink with kitchen utensils, air conditioning, mini fridge, and plenty of shelves to store our things. We stayed there for a week and wish we had stayed longer instead of going to Santorini! Overall the room was clean, in a quiet area, 1 minute walk to the beach, 4 minute walk to the bus stop, port and cute local restaurants, and a 10 minute walk to Chora Village where most of the partying takes place. Thanks to the chill vibes and location of Villa Mata we were able to spend our days and nights exactly how we wanted whether we were looking for a party or quiet time to relax.
Thank you Lambros!
