We had an amazing holiday at this unique house in the center of the beautiful island Folegandros.We are two adults with three children at the age 10,10 and 5 and the facilities were great for us. Each room is situated partly seperate from the center of the house, which makes it possible for the whole family to enjoy the place.You find a totally breathtaking view from this charming house where practical and personal decoration goes hand in hand and offers you a welcoming and gentle house where we immediatly felt at home. With three children we easyly came around.It only took 10 minuts to walk to the nearest willage Chora. You can take a bus to almost all the beaches, and to the nearest it only took 15 minuts. We stayed in the house for two weeks and had an amazing time and highly recommend it for anyone who is looking for a charming and unique place to stay while enjoying the charming island Folegandros.

We stayed in 14 dayes in this beautiful stonehouse in june/july, 2010. We were very satisfied with every thing, both the arrangement of the rooms, the design and style of the house and its architecturel planning with a
breathtaking view from everywhere. There was allways possibilities to find
sun as well as shadow with the many terasseces in front of every room. We
found the at our arrival the house clean and neat everywhere.There was clean linnnen and towels on the beds. We will be very happy to recommend
this lovely house.
Dominant, quiet and comfortable situation. Regrettably the house was not clean on arrival; I spent a whole day to clean everything (grounds, dusts, cobwebs in the dishes, important molds in cupboards, dirty windows). Bathrooms were correct.
I contacted the owner who was very surprised by my remarks, he specified me that it was the first time when it arrived, and when for my next rent in September, everything would be completed (see my second comment).
The surface indicated by the house (115 m2) includes a part of terraces, it is a little bit misleading. The living space is closer 90 m2. The situation is quiet, only the dogs of the neighborhood can be annoying (5 or 6 dogs); fortunately, the frequent barkings took place only during the day.
The car park can be made on the small road near, or in front of the gate. There is really no parking lot.
The arrangements are not ended, works are in progress around, as the construction of a garage. Many materials are stored around, in bulk, what does not really give a good impression.
In summary: my day of cleaning was compensated with the fact that we stayed 2 weeks on a very beautiful island. Even if we are in the "countryside", I think that a minimum of cleanliness can be required. The fact is surprising all the more as we were not the first tenants of the season!
We arrived at a fantastic house, wonderful decorated and nice and clean. All arranged so the holiday and relaxing moments could start at the very first minute.
The architecture of the house is very speciel, as this house and all other houses on the island have to follow the historic design of Greek houses.
The layout of the house is made in a way so it is comfortable and nice for 2 persons and also if it is full. The house has several separate rooms with bathrooms which makes it possible to have some privacy and relaxing moments if required.
The terrasses around the house gives the possibility of either being in the sun all day or if preferred to be in the shadow all day.
From the house you can see the village, where plenty of restaurants, cafes and small shops can be reached within a 10 minute walk.
Lovely beaches is also a possibility and with the bus all beaches can be reached within 15 – 20 minutes.
Summary is that it is a lovely place to spend holidays, friendly people, great view, good restaurants and a relaxing atmosphere , we will with no doubt return to the same place and enjoy it.
Folegandros is a small, rugged unspoiled island which can be accessed by ferry from Piræus or the neighbouring island Santorini, which has international airport, serving destinations all over Europe. Although Folegandros is only 15 km in length it is scattered with delightful beaches and secluded caves ideal for swimming and snorkelling in clear, cool water. Folegandros is inhabited by approx. 700 people, many of whom still farm traditionally in Ano Meria. In the summertime Folegandros welcome both greeks and foreign visitors in the cozy tavernas in the 3 village, providing tasty local food and wine.
Other Activities: teaching in diving, tours to the monaster Panagiri, the farm village Ano Meria, and sailing trips
