Folegandros is a small, charming island between Milos and Santorini in the Southern Cyclades. Its surface is 32 sq. km. and has a population 650 inhabitants. The cliffs give the landscape a magical complexion. An ideal place for a quiet and relaxing holiday.
There are nice trails where you can walk and two large villages. Hora and Ano Meria. Ηora with its narrow, cobbled streets, is one of the most beautiful villages in the Cyclades.
