Ios vs. Sifnos in mid-September?

Jump to last reply

We are planning on spending 12 days on the Greek islands in the middle of September, beginning on September 13, and want opinions as to which island - Ios or Sifnos - is best for a 5 day stay before we finish our holiday with a week in Milos at Tania Milos (chosen because it looks lovely and allows a flight back to Athens on the morning that we return to Canada).

We are in our early 60's, have been to Mykonos, Santorini and Naxos, and want something a bit less touristy (I understand that Ios in mid-September is less of a party town than in the middle of the summer).

We will be spending a few days before the islands visiting Athens, Delphi, Meteora and Olympia, and will be looking for something relaxing, with a nice beach and nearby taverns.

If we choose Ios, we plan to stay at Island House Hotel, and if we choose Ios, we plan to stay at Niriedes Hotel.

Any comment will be appreciated.

Many thanks.
