Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at Maria's and absolutely loved it. After exploring the island, we couldn't have imagined staying anywhere else. It is so great to stay in the Chora/Castro and experience an authentic Greek holiday. I spent 5 weeks in Greece this trip and this was my favorite spot, both the island of Folegandros and this home. And Maria is a great host!

A charming and elegant family home in the Chora

  • 5 of 5

In August 2015 we (two adults and two kids) spent a blissful 14 days staying at Maria and Antonis's recently and tastefully renovated family house. Living in the Chora is wonderful if you enjoy Greek cafe society and the house has a simple charm (oak beams etc) and elegance to it. There is a roof terrace but tended to be too hot so we spent most of the at home time on the bench you see in the picture, looking at the pomegranate tree, geraniums and vibrant yucca tree. Everything works, all the kit is new, you are protected from the wind and there are no insects. The church outside has a very quiet bell and Maria, Antonis are charming and helpful beyond words.

Charming stay in Folegandros

  • 5 of 5

The house is in the ancient part of the Chora in Folegandros. Folegandros is a unique island as well as this property. The house is fully equipped, well restored and tasty decorated and the owner Maria is a great host.

We really felt at home and would suggest the property to a family of4to six as well as to a group of friends.

Folegandros is paradise

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house, in very good taste. Localisation unbeatable - best spot in Chora. Maybe a little too small for 5 people. Hot showers have to be taken in turns. Not very many kitchen utilities or change of towels and sheets.

For the rest, perfection. We have been to Folegandros many times and will be back. Thank you Maria and Antonis

Historisches Haus im alten Ortskern

  • 4 of 5

Gut ausgestattetes Ferienhaus für 4 Personen. Geschmackvolle Einrichtung. unschlagbare Lage im "Kastro", dem denkmalgeschützten historischen Dorfkern von Folegandros. Sehr nette, immer ansprechbare Vermieterin. Allerdings keine Klimaanlage, was im Hochsommer zu höheren Temperaturen in den im 1. Stock gelegenen Schlafräumen führt.

Owner's Response: Dear Hardy, Thank you very much for the review. It was a pleasure to having you at the house. The truth is that the period you stayed at home, the weather was too warm, far above the normal. However I would like to note that we preferred to put ventilators instead of air conditioners in the house, for purely aesthetic reasons, since in such a traditional settlement, generally avoid placing machinery on the walls, such as air conditioners equipment. Thanks again and I look forward to having you back in any future stay on the island. Sincerely, Maria

The house is located in the fantastic area of medieval Castro in Chora of Folegandros island. Chora is 3.3 km from the port in a small plateau 210 meters above sea level, is the capital of the island and one of the best preserved traditional Cycladic settlements . The main features of the settlement of the country, apart from the Medieval Castle, are the many squares one after another, sample unique in the Cyclades, narrow cobbled alleys and small streets, many old churches, beautiful old houses, large and small, and the characteristic white color of the Cyclades . If you are looking for attractions , the entire country is a landmark and very beautiful. The Medieval Castle, the Church of Our Lady on the hill , the ruins of the ancient Folegandros in the village cemetery , the many old churches , old houses, streets and alleys , all will fascinate you , each for different reasons .

The view of the town is magnificent , unobstructed and offers a wonderful opportunity for photographs from the edge of the ' Punta ', the church of Pantanassas in the castle or from the terraces and roofs of the buildings of the settlement .

The small , nearly contiguous squares of the settlement have many cafes and restaurants, but also have their own characteristics each.

Access to the Chora is a regular bus line Karavostassis (Port)-Chora, Chora-Agali and Ano Meria by car or scooter, private, rented or which park in large parking areas outside the village and continue with walk. A few kilometres from the town operates a helipad capable of night landing or take-off, if necessary. There are other places you can reach on rented cars or scooters, according to the instructions of the officers. Naturally, toned and lovers of hiking you can go everywhere on foot, through an extensive network of footpaths that cross the entire island.
