On The Rocks is a luxury 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom villa, with private pool and breathtaking sea views.
It is situated in Ios Greece, a short walk away from lively Chora and right above the beach of Valmas.
A place to relax, have fun and feel special.

The space

The villa is arranged in two wings.
In total it has four double and two twin bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, two sitting rooms with a well stocked library, TV, two fully equipped kitchens and a playroom. The villa has a private swimming pool, an outdoor sitting area, BBQ area with wood oven and sun lounge and lawn garden. It is air-conditioned throughout and serviced daily.

Guest access

The villa is perfect for a fortnight holiday for large families, or families with friends and teenage children.
It will accommodate twelve people in style and comfort. The four mattress system and the pillow menu will ensure a great rest at night and the view from the windows and balconies will take your breath away.
The pool area and garden are ideal for a morning swim, a brunch by the pool, to read a book, sunbathe, or be inspired by the view .... and in the evening it will provide ample space for alfresco dinning, sunset cocktails, or late night drinks by the pool.
The BBQ area has an open fire, a wood oven, and a sitting area with beautiful views of the Aegean sea and spectacular sea sunsets.

A fantastic stay at John and Emmanuela's beautiful home. We had arrived for a week of deep sea diving and found the villa perfect for our requirements. Cheap taxi/ 5 minute quad bike ride into town, a beautiful pool and fantastic utilities in the apartment, great communication and cleaners tidying up after us at every opportunity. Highly recommended, and both John and Emmanuela are lovely too. NJ

Beautiful and very comfortable property on a marvelous location with the best sea view to appreciate the sunset. Family and friends all instantly found their marks thanks to our hosts warm welcoming. The pool was definatly a plus with our 1y/o baby, the beach within 5 minutes walk and the outdoor BBQ to grill fresh under the Ios stars made everyone happy. Such a perfect house for a family vacation. We all hope to be back next year!

Nous sommes déjà si triste d'être sur le chemin du retour... Nous avons passé une semaine de rêve dans une maison somptueuse, décorée avec goût (encore mieux que sur les photos!) parfaitement tenue, et quotidiennement entretenue; et nous sommes reposés dans des lits très confortables et prélassés dans nos beaux peignoirs "on the rocks". La situation de la villa est idéale avec une vue imprenable sur la mer et le coucher du soleil. L'accueil de John et Emmanuela est tout simplement merveilleux et nous plonge immédiatement dans une atmosphère de vacances. Le plus difficile est probablement de choisir entre la magnifique piscine et la crique avec eau turquoise à 5 minutes à pieds! Merci à Alina pour sa discrétion et son efficacité, ainsi que ses petites intentions surprises :) Bref, tout simplement parfait...Tout est fait pour que chaque heure soit plus douce dans la villa la plus magique de Ios!

For the last 26 years we have been spending our summer holidays in Ios, a beautiful island in the Cyclades. We love it here and this is why we decided to build a holiday home.
"On The Rocks" are two villas that will accommodate comfortably 12 people. They are ideal for families with children of all ages and groups of friends.
We want all our guests to feel special, enjoy a relaxing holiday and have a great time. We will try to attend to your needs and requirements and make your holidays a truly memorable experience.
Here at "On The Rocks" we feel at peace. The view, the breeze, the sun, the sea... inspires us and gives us strength.
We like to believe that you will feel the same!!!!
