This family-run hotel in small Cycladic Island Folegandros is built on the very edge of a steep vertical cliff, boasting 360 degree views of the sea and sunset. Danai’s father Dimitris Patelis first intended on using the hotel property to build a summer home. As a contractor, he was able to envision the great potential of the fantastic location when he visited Folegandros one year on holiday. However, he and his family decided they must share this special place with others.
Anemomilos Apartments opened in 1993 after three difficult and challenging years of construction. With the lack of hardware stores and qualified excavators, most of the large rocks had to be removed with dynamite. Patelis lived and breathed the development of the hotel on-site, participating and overseeing each step of the process.
Danai and her brother Andreas now co-own and run the hotel together along with their parents Dimitri and Cornelia.
Anemomilos Apartments studios offer spacious accommodation and sea views. There is also a luxurious suite at the most prime location of the property, with a panoramic view of the sea, sunset, and Hora village. The guest-only pool is open all day, along with the Bar/Restaurant serving cocktails as well as freshly made food with local produce.
