Our old family-house between the windmills is situated on the narrowest point of the island, overlooking the sea both north and south, surrounded by nothing but nature.
The house has everything needed for everyday life, and fits 2-4 persons.

The space
The house between the windmills have been the home of my husband's family for generations.
It is placed on a magnificent spot where the island narrows, enabling a view to the sea on both sides of the house.
On the back-side the sea lies deep under the terrace, offering a breathtaking panorama. On the front-side your eyes follow the islands sun burnt fields all the way down to the sea, where the sun sets in the evening.
There is a small beach directly under the house, accessible only by foot. For the main beach, Angali, you can stop the bus that passes on the main road, a little away from the house, or - if you enjoy walking - you can follow the footpath, that will take you there in about 35 minutes.
The nearest shops are in Chora, the main village on the island - you can walk there in 15 minutes, or you can stop the bus.

We lived in the house for 10 years - but when the kids grew older, they wanted to be nearer to the 'city' and their friends, and we moved to Chora.
Thus having an empty house, we decided to share this marvelous spot with others.
We have separated the house in 3 independent 'flats' - this being the first of them.

'The big Mill' contains a large kitchen/living-room, and one separate bedroom. It has a fully equipped kitchen, and bathroom with a washing machine.
4 persons can be accommodated in the house
.
The houses are independent units - meaning that they are clean and ready when you book in, you have extra sheets and towels if you want to change, but we do not come by every day to clean. It is your house for the time you stay there.
The final cleaning, when you leave, is ours.

I came to Folegandros, on holidays from Denmark, 30 years ago, and didn't ever want to leave. It took some time before the dream came through, but the last 20 years I have been living on the island with my Greek husband and our 2 kids. In the summer we are running a garden restaurant, and in the winter I am practicing my original profession, making ceramics - partly for use in the restaurant, and partly for selling during the summer. Also during the winter I enjoy the magnificent nature here, walking all over with my husband - and the company of the other girls and ladies on the island, gathering for coffee, Greek dancing and gymnastics. When we moved from our home between the windmills, we thought it would be nice to share this magical spot on earth with other people, and we started renting it. So far this has given us many interesting contacts with people all over the world. We are happy to help our guests with information's and suggestions - but we cannot as such physically show you around on the island, as we are tied to the restaurant during the summer - but then it is a very small island, easy to get around... We really love our island and the life here - it is simple, quiet, healthy - and we would like to give you the opportunity to get to love it as well!

During your stay

We love to get to know our guests - to share interrests and opinions - and informations on the island - over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. But, it has to take place in our restaurant, because we are tied to it the whole summer.
We wil take you to the house when you arrive, and pick you up when you leave - but we will not be around during your stay. If you have any kind of problems you will always be able to find us at the restaurant, and I will provide you with my mobile-nr before you arrive.
