A new collection of 5-star boutique hotels & villas for 2018 and 2019 on the quintessential Greek island of Ios – an island in the Cyclades protected for more than 10 years by Angelos Michalopoulos and his wife Vassiliki. The duo bought one quarter of the island in order to preserve its natural beauty and protect it from mass tourism and environmental degradation and, in so doing, save Ios from the fate of its over developed neighbours. The small collection of boutique hotels and private villas will be based upon environmentally-friendly construction principles. Some developments have already opened, and more are set to launch in late 2018. The acquisition, from 624 owners, is considered to be the largest private holding of unspoiled coastal landscape ever purchased for conservation purposes. www.luxurios.com
