Located in the most picturesque part of the tiny and beautiful Folegandros, Notos blends perfectly with the untouched natural environment. We stayed for 4 nights in August and we absolutely loved it. Rooms are very clean and equiped with everything that you might need (there was no hair dryer but Lucas, the proprietor, brought us one the next day).
The view is breathtaking, especially when the sun sets between Milos and Kimolos in the background.
Apartments are built on working farmland, which means that you are surrounded by donkeys, goats and a friendly white cow (actually it is so utterly quiet that one night we heard the cow licking herself from a distance of 100m).
Night skies are spectacular due to absolute lack of light pollution, you will be amazed!
The only thing that needs improvement is the lack of privacy. Sitting on our verandah we could see and be seen by those who stayed in the other 4 rooms/houses.

- Experience the CycladesFolegandros is a small island in the South-western Cyclades, between the islands of Sikinos and Milos. Self sufficient and welcoming, Folegandros is a place of great wild beauty shining underneath the aegean light. In such landscape, very close to Ano Meria, we created a complex of houses called NOTOS, perfectly integrated into the natural environment while taking into consideration the traditional architecture. Here the visitor experiences immediately the essence of Cycladic life while feeling at home!NOTOS / in FolegandrosIn an idyllic location, 800 m from the village of Ano Mera in Folegandros, with breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea and surrounding islands, we created the complex of houses NOTOS.

Each 40 m2 house can accommodate up to 3 guests. Each house, with fully equipped kitchen and large terraces, offer a unique view of one of the most spectacular sunsets in the Cyclades.
