FOLEGANDROS - CYCLADES. Peaceful and genuine places.

Folegandros is a tiny Greek island of the Cyclades, still untouched by mass tourism and appreciated by lovers of peaceful and genuine places.

 The small Island of Folegandros (32 km2, 650 inhabitants), has become fashionable, but it is still an untouched piece of true Greece. On account of the simple and relaxing atmosphere that reigns all around the island we like to distinguish it as the "island of Peace".
Its three small villages, Karavostasi (the port), the Chora, Ano Meria and Agali Beach are connected by paved roads.
What catches the eye immediately is the endless series of "dry-placed" walls that have been erected over the centuries by the inhabitants to create terraces on the sunny slopes of the territory to be able to raise cereals.
