FLOAT­ING AWAY ON THE ISAND OF IOS IN A PUR­PLE HAZE

LuxeGetaways - - Getaways -

Why Ios? Sim­ple, be­cause it has a pri­vate is­land feel, while you can still wan­der into town for a drink, or a de­li­cious meal with the lo­cals. Wild­flow­ers cover the hill­sides, turn­ing them shades of pur­ple dur­ing the spring and sum­mer months. At dusk, the vi­o­let-shaded hills melt into the sea, as it also turns vi­o­let. The lit­tle lights of white­washed houses ap­pear, and the stars pop out in a cloud­less sky as the moon rises. One of the best spots on Ios to en­joy sun­set, Liostasi Ho­tel, is also the most ro­man­tic place to stay. This dream of an es­cape is set into the hill­side with stu­pen­dous views to the har­bor be­low. Each room and suite is airy, chic and in­vites re­lax­ation thanks in part to the un­clut­tered de­sign. Ask for the “Liostasi Suite” for a pri­vate pool out­side and a huge bath­tub for two en­suite – both with mes­mer­iz­ing views of the sea. For those in­spired by the sim­ple beauty here, cou­ples can even ar­range to re­new their vows in the pri­vate chapel. I do!
