“Haven of peace and tranquility!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

We simply loved our stay at Anemomilos Apartments, and the Folegandros island, and we will definitely return!

Upon arrival at Karavostasi harbour, we were picked up by Anemomilos shuttle bus. From there it was approx. 3 km to the main village of the island, Chora, where also Anemomilos is located.
Anemomilos has a very beautiful and well maintained property and grounds. All the flowers and beautiful surroundings reminded me of Le Hameau in Saint-Paul-de-Vence (another lovely place). The pictures attached speak for themselves.

We stayed in the Suite (room # 6), which had a kitchenette with a big fridge, toaster, tea maker, pots, pans, glasses, plates, cutlery etc. It had a large bedroom, and a separate living room. Both rooms had its separate balconies, but we ended up staying only at the larger one, with lovely views of the sea, sunset and the church of Panagia.

If it wasn’t for the UEFA cup ongoing at the same time of our trip, we wouldn’t probably have turned on the TV, but Anemomilos has a good choice of various TV channels. They also have WiFi, which works equally well in the rooms as by the pool.

The service was excellent and attentive, and the breakfast even better! We had our breakfast every morning on our balcony, except for the last morning, when we were leaving. See the pictures attached of the broad selection of breakfast items.

Only a few minutes away, you find the restaurants and the grocery stores of Chora. At Spitiko we had delicious potato salad and tzatziki as starters, their home made matsala (local pasta) with red sauce, served with rabbit and goat respectively as main dishes, accompanied by 0.5 l red wine, followed finally by coffee, tea and typical Greek melon cake – at the price of 37€ altogether.

For a slightly more ‘fancy’ dinner, you can visit Eva’s Garden. They had really good food, and later in the evening the atmosphere was very cosy when all the candles were lit in the outside garden. It is a little pricier, but worth it.

One thing I cannot go without mentioning is restaurant Mimis in Ano Meria. There we had a very good garlic tzatziki, excellent grilled feta, really good grilled octopus, and different small deserts made of local berries. Altogether for two persons also 37€, including 0.5l white wine and bottles of water.

You can also enjoy e.g. a light lunch at Anemomilos, if you are hanging around by the pool during the day and get hungry. They serve various salads, sandwiches and fajitas, at prices ranging from 6 to 16 €.

Folegandros is truly an island of peace. It was like time had stopped. You will find beaches where there will be nobody else but you. You will see men riding on donkeys on the streets. You will simply relax, and be amazed by the tranquillity.

One of the ways getting around the small island is renting a scooter. We rented a 150cc scooter from Scooterland Venetia for 17€ per day. This place had new, well functioning and good looking scooters (in comparison to most other rentals on the island).

From Folegandros we continued to Santorini. When we were leaving, the Anemomilos crew said that Folegandros is a much better island... and they were right :)

Enjoy a relaxing stay at Anemomilos and Folegandros!

Unique island, a kind of Greece's lost innocence.
Anemomilos is simply the best place to stay during your visit at Folegandros.

Room Tip: Choose Blue line studios, visit the island from late May till mid July.

Due to the bad weather we were obliged to stay on the wonderful island of Folegandros. We discovered Anemomilos and decided to stay there. It was excellent. The welcome was very friendly (to the contrary as some rednecks say on this site), the lady owner, her husband and her daughter are of an exceptional niceness. The rooms are exclusive with one of the best views of the Cyclades. Breakfast is terribly good. Assistance for boats and ferrys is top. It is not a democratic hotel, prices are high, but justified with regards to what you receive. We deciced to come back. You only live once. To those who look for a cheap hotel, don't go there, but if you want top quality, be aware that it has a price. And the price is worth it.

Room Tip: take one of the rooms on the highest floors with full seaview

This place really is like it looks in the pictures! Quite expensive, but worth it depending on your priorities - this is by no means a party island. The pool is heavenly, and the poolside cafe perched on the cliff has spectacular views. The owners are very attentive - one afternoon a guest left a shutter open, which banged in the wind (it does get windy up there!), no big deal but I thought I'd mention it. The problem was immediately addressed as if was the most important thing in the world! I felt in safe hands from that moment.

We started in one of the cheaper green rooms, but you really need a blue room - we upgraded after one night thanks to a no-show.

Room Tip: Get a more expensive blue room

My husband and I stayed in room #1 in July of 2011. We can't wait to go back next year! This charming, warm, comfortable, cozy hotel is one of the best places we've ever found. The only reason I hesitate to write this review is that word will get out and it will be difficult to book a room! Folegandros is a fabulous small island and this gem of a hotel is located in the best place possible with breathtaking views of the sea and the church on the hill. The rooms are clean, comfortable and charming. Breakfast and lunch are terrific and they have a nice bar and wine selection. The pool area is fabulous! The family are so very friendly and were actually responsible for helping us with transportation to the island. At Anemomilos you're approx. 2 blocks from the town square. We found fresh produce and a great little market. You must rent a 4-wheeler and go exploring. All I can say is that this place is amazing. So keep this to yourself!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Anemomilos Apartments in June 2010. I can't believe places like this exist!

The room was spotless and modern with a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea from our private balcony. We even had a window in the shower that overlooked the rocky hillside and crystal blue water.

The grounds were immaculate and there was always somebody walking around picking up any stray leaves off the ground.

It was walking distance Chora Square and all the little cafes and restaurants nearby. We particularly liked Nicolas Cafe which always seemed to be busy (perhaps due to the free wifi!). If you go there, make sure you get a Nutella Crepe!

Overall, it was a great experience staying at Anemomilos Apartments and I hope to go back one day!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the ocean view - worth it!

This intimate family run hotel was recommended to us by friends who actually stayed at another, older hotel. While they were in Folegandros, they kindly checked out the other hotels for us and found this jewel! The hotel has two sections - the blue line and the green line. The rooms are similar in quality but the views are different. The balconies on the blue line face the water which sounds more appealing but the winds are often so strong (especially in September & October) that you can't really sit out on them. The green line face into the common walk through and the quiet roadway leading to the main square. We had the room at the end of the green line which provided the best of both worlds - great views of the sea and shelter from the wind. The room was large and immaculate with a kitchenette, sitting area and very modern bathroom and fantastic shower.
The owners were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. The superjet which we were booked on was not running and Cornelia e-mailed us with alternate choices. We were picked up and dropped off at the port (no charge). We chose not to prepay for breakfast (18 euro each for a full, multi-choice meal ). However, you can order single items from the menu once you get there and the prices are very reasonable and the food is excellent. We also ate lunch by the pool and again the quality, choices and prices were excellent.
Loved the island of Folegandros and definitely will stay at Anemomilos when we go for a return visit!
