Seeking advice on accommodation in August

Dear Xaroula,

Thank you for such wealth of information about Folegandros. It was an excellent forum indeed.

We will be visiting the island in August and would like to seek some advice about accommodation if possible. We are travelling as family of 3. I wonder if you can provide your opinion about Irene's Room, Spyridoula and Haraki as I couldn't find any reviews about them. Thanks.

I have stayed in Eleni's Rooms. They are cheap and cheerful, and are OK if all you want is a bed to sleep in and are not planning to spend much time in (or outside) the room. I can't comment on the others.

well first have you established that they have availability for your dates? August is high season and many places are fully booked. I don't know anything about Haraki at all except that some people told me it wasn't that great - but I have no idea if that is true. It's kind of on the outskirts, much more so than the others, but not a long walk to the center of town. Spyridoula is very centrally located, and many of the rooms have kitchens which is super helpful. I live in the largest of the apartments and it's plenty big for a vacation (small to live in year round but you don't care!). I can tell you that Spyridoula's rooms are immaculate (Christina who runs them is a cleaning maniac and is one of the only owners who cleans all the rooms herself rather than hiring someone). But I'm not trying to suggest that other places are NOT clean, please don't misinterpret that.

If I were you, I'd just pick one based on location (probably Spyridoula if you want a kitchen but be sure to make it clear that you want a kitchen as not all of the rooms have one) and book NOW before they are all gone.

Good luck :)
