Folegandros & How to reach us
Folegandros is a small island located at the centre of the Southwest Cyclades next to Santorini.
Its deep blue waters are in complete harmony with its landscapes of wild beauty. Its lacey shores that dance along with the Mediterranean breezes, showing you the way to the islands’ pristine beaches. Images that every visitor will hold in their heart forever.
Anemi Hotel is situated in Karavostasis, a location that gives you the opportunity to discover Hochlidia beach with its Tamarisk trees for moments of rest and its family taverns for enjoying some exceptional local dishes. You can also visit the most isolated and peaceful beaches of Folegandros by choosing one of the small traditional boats that will guide you to dreamy marine spots, that no land vehicle can approach, such as the beaches of Katergo or Livadaki.
Like every other Cycladian island, Folegandros is an enchanting place for evening strolls along the picturesque alleys of its villages. Take a walk around Karavostasis, Folegandros’ port, along the main road that connects our hotel with Chora, the centre of the island. Chora was built 200 meters above the sea, about 3,4 km away from Karavostasis and Anemi Hotel. It is a rural paradise of tiled roads and little white houses, with squares full of people who enjoy the simple things in life.
Pay attention to the sounds; chances are, the only thing you are going to hear is the wind and the sea. Nature is calling you. A truly captivating experience, that keeps a well-hidden secret safe for those who wish to discover it. Just when you think that it cannot get any better, you will come across Kastro, the old section of Chora. Kastro means “castle”, and it is exactly what you think it is. A medieval settlement that maintains its charisma until today, and will take you back in time. A breathtaking spectacle, that will give your vacation a distinct character.
The hills of Folegandros are full of stone paths all around the island. That is why it is an exceptional opportunity for hiking lovers, to seek every treasure of the island, with the Aegean sea as the ever present background. For those who prefer aquatic activities, there is always the possibility of organizing a scuba-diving session, so that you can delve into the mysteries of the ocean, guided by a well instructed team every step of the way.
