Folegandros is a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea which, together with Sikinos, Ios, Anafi and Santorini, forms the southern part of the Cyclades.
Folegandros has become fashionable, but it is still an untouched piece of true Greece.
On account of the simple and relaxing atmosphere that reigns all around the island we like to distinguish it as the “island of Peace”. The island impresses all visitors with the alterations of scenery.
The wild mountainous bulks, the lacy shores, the green fields and the traditional settlements, create magical scenery. Its three small villages, Karavostasi (the port), the Chora, Ano Meria and Agali Beach are connected by paved roads. The Chora, closed to car and motorcycle traffic, has a unique “center” of three squares in a row, with trees under which to enjoy a drink or food in a quiet, romantic atmosphere.
The church of Panaghia, on the top of a hill, offers a nice walk and a magnificent view of the Chora and of the west coast. Also, the area of the Kastro, a small fortress made by the Venitians in 1210, a small village into the Chora village, will take you back to the Middle Ages.
The natural beauties and the warm hospitality of its residents have turned the island into a popular travel destination. It is the perfect place for those wanting to relax.
Everything in Folegandros seems like they have come out of a fairy tale.
