“Just paradise!”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

This place is just a little paradise... But shhhh! Don't tell nobody!
The place itself, the views, the quietness, the kindness of the greek family that runs it and all the good taste and details of the accomodation makes it the best place to stay in Folegandros.

Room Tip: All are great

Provalma Studio is fantastic, I would not hesitate when contemplating booking. Yiannis and his mother have done an amazing job. The studios are large and really tastefully designed, great bathrooms, huge comfy beds (ours had a sea view from it!), and nice terraces outside each studio. They have put a lot of thought into everything. The views are amazing from the studios, and the pool area is great, a very relaxing place to stay.

Yiannis picked us up from the port and helped organise scooter rental, and Yiannis and his mother were both helpful in recommending restaurants and great beaches. The location is great as there is a fantastic beach a few mins scooter away, with taverns and cafes, and boats to take you to other beaches if you want. It was nice to be out of Chora, but close enough to scooter to for dinner if we wanted.

The air conditioning and wifi were execellent, and the studio was very clean. The only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer as they were booked out!

Excellent location and amazing view! Very kind owners, who organized our transportation from and to the port, gave us useful trips on how to move around and were assisted us in all important issues. Welcoming atmosphere, unusual, but quite comfortable accommodation. Space was new, clean, arranged with a lot of taste. Quiet. We got truly good service and we plan to get beck there. We strongly recommend this accommodation!

We were at the Provalma studios for three nights at the beginning of June.
The website pictures are exactly as the location is in reality, so wonderful!
The owners are very organized, we have got the transfer when we arrived and when we left ans it was included in the price.
Rooms and the entire location are super clean, and with a very stylish and so good design. The offered breakfast is fresh and very tasty and the island well... You should go there.
If you would like a relaxing holiday go there end you will be not disappointed.

Provalma offers you by first sight the consistency of a serious business harmoniously combined with the warmth of a traditional family runplace,Giannis and his mother make you feel like home away from home in a very genuine way.They do know how to keep the ideal balance by paying personalised attention(everything you ask for is done literally at the spot) and maintaining privacy and at the same time being discreet when you' re relaxing.In Provalma everything runs that smoothly ,the only choice you have is to relax and enjoy yourself and scenery!!
The live eyecontact with the whole place is even better than the website photonavigation benefiting from the unvailed direct sea views..taste of greek island architecture,evident in every detail also in the outdoor surroundings!!We stayed at Vorino,an appartment enhanced details in the tranquiling natureinspired local colours.It is spacious,with comfortable sofas,a perfect bathroom,a fully equiped kitchen and even the small things in it have been chosen with lots of thought and a very elegant but still hommy eye.The pool is great,quiet and has an amazing view.
To be mentioned the daily help of Giannis for advices and suggestions to discover Folegandros..all the beaches and local eateries he suggested us were a delight!!
We didn't miss at all staying somewhere in Chora,since staying at Provalma was less touristic and spoiled and also a great deal with nature and peaceful.
Added benefits: the Korres bath products and the homemade cake and jam!!
What to say more..Provalma is a warm place you wish you had planned to stay longer,a place you can't wait to return ,an experience second to none!!

We spent three nights in studio Empati and loved it! You'll need some form of transportation to get to and from Chora (where you'll want to be most nights) but that's easy and affordable. Yianni and his mother are great hosts. The pool is a serene place to come home to after a blissful day at one of the island's stunning beaches. But for me what was extra special was how seriously the owners take the concept of "filoxenia" or hospitality (in Greek). This is what sets a Greek vacation apart from others and nice to see it on display!

These are just few words that can describe this fantastic place: care, cosiness, warmth, love, and, dare I say it, it is simply the best of the best!
The hospitality of the owners is limitless!
As regards the island itself it’s just a piece of heaven on Earth for those seeking tranquillity and harmony and for those who are ready to discover new places themselves.
The beaches of Folegandros Island are one of the most beautiful beaches created by Mother Nature.
And, yes, my future husband and I have chosen to get married on this divine little island, and we had the most wonderful wedding ever!
I was leaving Provalma with a heart full of happiness and gratitude and with tears in my eyes.
