Chora is set high on the hill on the island of Alonissos and enjoys a feeling of peacefulness with breathtaking sea-views. Located on the quietest of the Sporades islands and about 2km from the island’s port, Patitiri, it is relatively unspoilt by tourism.
Chora or Ios Town is the main and only real village of Ios, build on the western side of the island, twenty minutes walk from the Town port. It is a real jewel, built amphitheatrically and shimmering under the sun. It easily charms everyone with its little cube houses with flat-roofed houses and its narrow stone paved streets winding like a labyrinth of white lines traditionally painted around the large flat stones; arches and arcades are merging from a street or between two houses and contribute to the creation of a wonderful and magical atmosphere.
In this typical Cycladic village, one of the most beautiful town in the entire Cyclades, visitors will find many hotels, pensions, rooms for rent, restaurants, fine jewellery, gift and souvenir shops, mini markets and a great amount of bars and night clubs.
