Folegandros Greece is one of the most picturesque islands of the Cyclades island chain.
Its wild natural landscape and peaceful atmosphere make this island a great destination for relaxing holidays away from the hustle and bustle!
It boasts traditional Cycladic architecture. That means that its village, Chora, is made up of tiny whitewashed houses, narrow alleys, colorful windows and doors, blue-domed churches and it is a very picturesque place not only to visit but also to stay at.
Quite frankly, every corner looks like a Cycladic postcard!
The numerous hotels located in Chora are perfect for a romantic stay with sea view.
On a hill above Chora sits the beautiful whitewashed Panagia church, the trademark of the island.
From Panagia church, you can marvel at the breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea and watch the sun falling into the horizon line, painting the white houses of the village in the shades of gold…Pure bliss!
Another place you need to visit in Chora, is Kastro, the Venetian quarter that is the oldest place in Chora.
Except for being a beautiful destination, Folegandros is also an ideal base for island hopping to the rest of the Cyclades islands.
From the island’s port depart daily ferries to Mykonos and Santorini, as well as a small boat that takes you to several beaches. Some of the best beaches are Agali and Ambeli, which have crystal clear waters and boast a beautiful natural setting.
