  • The simplicity of a cycladic Chapel in combination with a splendid view of the country and the surrounding region. Not to scare you the uphill, the road is passable and will reach over more easily than you think. Pray to the Virgin Mary and you know ... Perhaps the prayer you catch site (me however caught ...). The sunset from there is all the money!!

  • I guess that you sounds you strange to speak of a getaway that is the same road and not a destination in particular. Well, yes! It is wonderful and I have decided to dedicate a whole post. Folegandros is a very small island; in fact, it has only 32Km 2 and a single road. It has no loss. The road runs from the port (Karavostasi) which is in the Southeast until the other end of the island (Northwest) through emblematic spots such as Chora, the Church of Panagia or year Meria. What I recommend is to start in port and go up. Travel transports you to the Greece of many years ago. You will see many small and white churches with majestic cliffs, painted red or blue sky ceilings which die in the turquoise water, casitas (middle of nowhere) converted into restaurants, gentlemen who move with donkeys carrying things it up and down, grabs entire drying in the Sun, people living in silence... a marvel! Raconets.

  • It is a must-see in Folegandros, the Church is quite nice but the best are the views from it, from all over the island. It is the perfect place from which to see the sunset and also the promenade to reach the Church is very beautiful.

  • Fantastic view from this tiny iconic Greek church. Love the winding steep foot path leading up to the church. There are ancient statues and columns here...both laying about and integrated into the bell tower. Many a wedding is had here in the summer. Picture perfect.
  • Splendid view of Chora and the sea. Going out in the sunset.
