A vast expanse of water, surrounded by snow capped mountains and private beaches just calling for you to take a dip in the refreshing waters.

Mykonos Town

Sunset Stroll Around Amorgos Town.

Leaving the harbor we ventured up, into the center of the island to visit Hora.Hora is considered to be one of the most picturesque towns in the cyclades.
Blissfully quiet the narrow white washed streets were just waking up post afternoon siesta.Around every corner seemed to be another church or square lined with houses covered in beautiful flowers.As the temperature dropped we found shelter from the stiff breeze with a warming drink in one of a number of cosy bars on offer in town and the night wouldn’t be capped of without to token free shot of the “psiméni” raki.


Churches Of Ios.

Ios is awash with beautiful whitewashed churches, with unique features (basilica with dome) and their old icons. In Hora alone there are said to be 26 small and large churches, many of which are Byzantine.

The cathedral of Ios is easily recognizable and dominates the center of Hora.Originally it was named Ayios Nikolaos however at a later date renamed to Evangelismos.

Horas Catherdral

The pure and simple architectural of the Panagia Gremiotissa sits high up on a privileged location ,overlooking the sea and the rest of the island.
