Folegandros Island was chosen as a part of our May 2012 Greek Island tour specifically because it is small and not overcrowded with tourists like us. Folegandros is an undiscovered gem in the Greek Cyclades. If you read this review, burn it or delete it after reading. We would like to keep Folegandros a secret, because we are going back!...

We stayed in these apartments as part of a island hopping holiday. The room was immaculate all colour coordinated, breakfast was served by Violetta the Bulgarian owner on our terrace which was overlooking the port. the breakfast was lovely apart from the orange juice which seemed to be made from a powder. the owner offered to rent us a car...

Lonely Planet nearly put us off staying in the tiny port of Karavostastis, describing it as a 'last resort' but we thought it was a delightful, quiet place ,preferable to the Hora as we wanted to have a balcony closer to the sea instead of being perched 1000ft up the vertiginous cliffs where the main village is located.Vardia Bay offered...

Folegandros is a bit of a special island. You can either stay in the port town Karavostasi or upland, mainly in the Chora town. In the first case you have a charming harbour to view and acceptable bathing close by or about a kilometer away (good walking road to a sandy beach), but a town with few amenities. In the...

We spent a good time in vardia: the staff is really nice and helpfull (thanks to everybody again), the position is good:closed to port, beaches (for a last swim is fantastic, you can get a shower at the reception) and only 10 minutes from Chora by bus. The view from our balcony was really beautifull but the room was not...

Folegandros is one of the best destinations I've traveled, Chora is very beautiful, great food and hospitality. Vardia Bay Hotel offers a reasonable service, the breakfast is quite poor, even with the value of housing, could be better. I was trapped on the island due to the winds, and the hotel clerk helped me with the information needed to solve...

We never pre-book in the Greek Island, we arrive with the ferry, talk to the people that meets the boat, and then decide where to stay. Vardia Bay stood like a monument over the port , well lit up in the dark evening, and the lady from the hotel was kind. The room was above average in the Greek Islands,...

Vardia bay is a charming hotel just in front Folegandros port.... except if you're going to have any problem and the manager has to help you. We had a one night pre paid reservation, and to our arrival we found the hotel was full, our room was occupied and we could only accommodate in a small room in the kitchen...
