Golden Star is situated at a very convenient location in Ios Village (Hora), 10 metres from the bus stop, just 2-minute walk to the town center and within an easy access to Mylopotas beach.
Hora or Village (the capital), is a dazzling mix of white washed houses and blue domed churches and it is one of the finest towns in Cyclades. Built on the top of a hill, with medieval castle (built in 1400), white washed houses, maze streets, churches and a dozen of windmills reminding you of past days, when the islanders used the wind power efficiently to make their windmills work.
There are remains of the walls of the ancient city and there are ruins of the Temple of Apollo, close to Agia Aekaterini church. At the top of Hora is the chapel of Agios Nikolaos and under the castle is the church of Panagia Gremiotissa.
There are adequate services from Piraeus port. Ios Island is connected to Santorini, Paros, Naxos Island, Sikinos, Folegandros, Anafi, Mykonos and Crete.
