After a couple of lovely days on busy Santorini we took the ferry to Ios. What a contrast and what a wonderful 10 days lay ahead. We were travelling as a large family group so rented Magganari View Villa and Village 1 which worked perfectly. Both houses are beautiful, lots of windows making them so bright and breezy with lovely terraces to sit on to enjoy the view. It is clear that the houses are greatly loved with wonderful ceramics everywhere and the most amazing marble table on the lovely shaded dining area - complete with BBQ. Both houses are really well equipped - the beds are the comfiest ever and we loved the little details like the binoculars - great for watching the boats coming and going in the bay and the lovely Korres toiletries in the bathrooms. The houses were kept beautifully clean on a daily basis. We had heard that the sea was amazing, but nothing can quite prepare you for its beauty! Many hours where spent swimming plus we explored lots of small beaches on a great boat trip. We enjoyed fabulous food, both locally on the beach and at Kombara - check out Pathos! Olga and Fotis were fantastic and very enthusiastic to share their beautiful island with us - nothing was too much trouble. A final mention must go to the goats, what an amazing sight and sound to wake up to! And, as they say in Ios, 'in goats we trust'.
Stayed with a group of friends for four days and our stay was nothing short of incredible, the rooms were extremely clean, toiletries included. The house overall was absolutely stunning with incredible views, would recommend to anybody looking for a relaxing time next to a stunning beach.
The elegant and perfectly furnished villa is located 100m from The beach in a gorgeous position with astonishing view over Manganari bay and Santorini. Olga and Fotis, our hosts, assured we had everything in terms of amenities and luxury features to ensure comfort and wellbeing: daily housekeeping, a dedicated exclusive swimming pool, towel and linen change, satellite television, WI-FI internet connection, washing machine, microwave, great barbecue area, transfer from and to the port...the villa was elegant and comfortable, 3 big bedrooms ad 4bathrooms...and the swimming pool view...simply breathtaking! We were two families and everybody had a wonderful time. Thank you!
Villa is located in Magganari, an amazing bay in the south part of Ios with a sandy beach. We were eight people in total (4 kids) and we stayed for 6 days. Both hosts (Olga & Fotis) are really great people, friendly and extremely helpful from the first minute that we arrived in Ios.
The Villa itself is perfect! Spacious, clean, modern and fully equipped. The pool is amazing, and kids spend most of the day between the beach and the pool. Great Wi-Fi connection, either you want to read your emails or you watn to stream :-). Besides the pool there is a great barbecue with a stone table where we had lunch almost every day. There were even 3 mountain bikes available for some. Both house and pool were cleaned on a daily basis.
Overall, is on of the best places we ever stayed. Magganari Villa, Olga & Fotis and Magganari Bay is the perfect combination!! Strongly recommended for those that are looking for relaxed and pleasant holidays.
the villa is fantastic!
The owners are very warm and helpful and the accommodation is top and of a professional level.
We used all the facilities (pool, outside big breakfast table, lounges) offered by the house and we really enjoyed it.
Clean, warm, with a kitchen and a number of products, drinks, beverages and wine offered upon arrival.
overall a great place to stay. we ll be back soon.
Everything perfect, a group of people can stay there easily without bothering each other The pool is amazing and it is only a short walk to the sea. You can relax very well, everything you need is there and many pretty details make you smile. Nothing to disturb you. A place I would like to visit again.
Great location, near the beatiful beach and bay Magganari. Away from all the party and noise of the Hora youth crowd. Remember to stack up, as it takes 40 minutes on a very scenic drive to the town.
The house is really well designed. Modern, but in the traditional Cycladian style. High quality in every aspect, and beatifully decorated/designed. The pool was great, and the large shaded pergola a perfect place for us, not wanting to roast in the sun. The house is technically very well equiped, and both inside and outside is kept spotlessly clean. The hosts are really helpful and supportive, and helped us get the most out of our stay.
We simply loved the villa and the quiet scenic beach village. Thank you for a great week Fotis and Olga. We will guaranteed be back, and look forward to seeing you again.
