Anemomilos is the most famous hotel on Folegandros and justifiably so, due to its top location, excellent standards and overall ambience.

Built atop the high 250m cliff views are vertiginous and stunning, especially at sunset but here without the crowds of Santorini.

The hotel has 17 units and is designed in a mazy village style. Studios are split between Blue (front line with full sea views) and Green (second row but still with good sidesea views). They are spacious with a living area and sofa, and can sleep a family of up to 4. Beds are built-in (mostly doubles) and rooms are with shower. They possess all the usual mod cons - sat TV, AC, Wifi, fridge - plus a small kitchenette. Pool and beach towels plus an umbrella are also provided.

There is a beautiful swimming pool in the gardens, with a terrace restaurant and bar at the cliff edge. On a clear day you can see up to 9 other islands from here, and it is certainly the place to come at sunset for a drink.

The hotel is remarkably central and within a few minutes' walk you will find yourself in the middle of Chora, which can be particularly buzzy in the evenings. But whenever you return to Anemomilos you will find an atmosphere of civilised tranquillity.

A stay here really is a slice of Greek island heaven.
