The location of Ampelos Hotel

At the Chora of Folegadros
the finest in Cyclades.

Many consider it as the finest Chora in Cyclades and not just one of many. In every case it is truly beautifully picturesque with its paved yards and the blossoming flowerpots that adorn its back alleys. Countless churches with white bell towers make a picture perfect while at its highest spot stands the church of Panagia overlooking the crimson sunset and Pano Meria.

We invite you to discover it, to walk across its paved streets, discovering every corner. Here atop a small hill is where Ampelos Hotel lies, offering a panoramic view of the Chora, Panagia and the deep blue Aegean Sea.

Distances in numbers:

  • Karavostasis (port) 3,4km
  • Chora (capital of Folegandros) 380m
  • Agali beach 4km
  • Ano Meria 4,5km

What to do in Folegandros

Choices are many in Folegandros for a fun time and to make the most of your holiday! You can follow a trail that leads to small chapels or a far away beach of crystal clear waters.
If you are not the trekking type, you can visit by car some of the island’s largest beaches, like Angali or Karavostasi, in just 5 minutes.
A fine choice is touring the island on excursion boat Stella II. A truly beautiful experience as you will be able to see the whole of the island from sea and visit a number of hard to access beaches.
A stroll about Pano Meria is also worth the try. This is the rural part of Folegandros, which lately has seen a lot of development and nowadays features several lodgings. Here you can see the first ever restaurant of Folegandros, which run as a grocery shop too and served as the town’s meeting point. Pano Meria runs also the Ecology-Folklore museum of Folegandros with exhibits donated by the residents and farmers of the area, a truly worthy visit.

Reviews from the guests of Ampelos hotel in Folegandros

This resort is with no exception the best on the island. The view is incredible, the atmosphere is so welcoming and authentic and the owners are real life Angels who do their absolute best to make your stay unforgettable. The WiFi is great, the breakfast is amazing and because it’s 5 min walk out of the main city you get the best of both worlds - the quietness at Ampelos and the vibrating life from the city only 5 min away. I recommend this place with all my heart! 5 out of 5!
