The location is a short walk from both the port and the Chora center. It was filled with flowers and chirping birds. Very affordable and feels like being at home. The owner is really friendly and has great tips on places to go. I would recommend it to any travellers :)

This was my fourth visit to the beautiful island of IOS and this time I brought along my fiancé. The island was magical and not too hot. We hired a car and hit a couple of beaches recommended by Lambros of villa mata in fact he sorted a brand new hire car out at the best rate on the island.... More

Very good location, great value for money! - a couple of minutes walk from the port, beach, restaurants/supermarket and close to the village. The place itself feels very homely and relaxed as soon as you walk in. Clean, well equipped kitchen, our room was tidy, comfy and got cleaned every day. The host Lambros and his family are so friendly,... More

Villa Mata is the one and only place to stay on Ios! The location of the hotel is perfect as it's close to the port, shops, restaurants and bars. A short walk will get you into town and a bus ride will take you to other exquisite beaches. Lambros the host, will surely make you feel at home!

I stayed at Villa Mata 3 years ago and had the best time. It's conveniently located only a short walk away from the port, shops and nightlife and it's right in front of the beach! It's also close to the bus stop that takes you to either Milopotas or Magganari beach - both amazing. The rooms are nice and clean... More

I absolutely loved staying at Villa Mata - so much so that I will be returning this upcoming June! Lambros is the best host, immediately becoming your Greek best friend. The villa is beautiful, the rooms are just right and the location is prime (close to the ferries, restaurants, supermarket and 10 min to the main town). I absolutely recommend... More
