We have stayed here twice and both times were amazing. Iano is a gorgeous little hamlet, this accommodation is perfect, we had a wonderful holiday on both occasions. All of the apartments are lovely as is the pool and the surrounding gardens.

There is a lovely pond thriving with wildlife, and a cool rose garden. The pool is big and clean with plenty of lounge chairs to soak up the view. The apartment was perfect. It was spacious... More
