About UsThe story behind

Anemomilos Boutique Hotel in Folegandros is a family-run hotel that first opened its doors in 1993.

Dimitris Patelis, an ex constructor, first came to Folegandros as a visitor and fell in love with the island, the people and -most importantly- with that piece of land on the edge of the cliff of Hora, where the villages’ one and only windmill used to stand. This has inspired us to name the Hotel “Anemomilos”, Windmill.

Construction work took up almost 3 years, at a time when in Folegandros any large-scale building process was extremely difficult. Most of the work was done manually and almost every detail has been scrutinised by the personal care of Dimitris himself who literally lived on-site.

The business grew since then and we are celebrating 25 years of operation in 2018!

Our vision still revolves around the initial goal to be able to offer the perfect setting for what we consider as one of the most precious things in life: your holidays. As a family business, our aim is to do our best to ensure that your needs are met and that you truly feel that you have found your home away from home.

We will be more than glad to host you in our property and promise to do our best in order to ensure that you have a wonderful stay, filled with pure relaxation, happy moments, and sun-kissed memories!

Welcome home!

Dimitris, Cornelia,
Andreas, Diana,
Amir (the English Setter) and Aristos (the ex stray).
