Million dollar view and billion dollar host. I feel like Irina herself is reason enough to book this place. She’s very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The home is amazingly authentic and truly magical and the views are beyond breathtaking. I recommend this place for travellers looking for a real Greek island way of life. Beyond that this island itself has such character that I’ll never forget. This place lives in my memories now until I return again.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Cliff house and would thoroughly recommend a visit. The house is fabulous and is in the best location - close to the village centre but still quiet and peaceful. It is beautifully decorated and has amazing views.
Irina was super helpful, sending through lots of ideas for places to visit and restaurant recommendations and she responded immediately to any queries.
We would love to come back to stay for longer to do some more walking.
The Cliffhouse is truly spectacular in its position and is extremely comfortable to stay in.
The house is so charming with all the things you need and is positioned very close to the centre of town but still quiet and unbelievably pretty! The host is amazing - one of the best I have ever come across - so helpful and gave us so much good information that really helped us have a wonderful stay on Folegandros.
"Irina’s home is simply a GEM ! The location is central but quiet, easy and the view breathtaking ! The bedrooms are spacious and so are the living spaces ! This amazing heritage house is tastefully renovated with local charm ! Maria and Irina offered warm and outstanding hospitality ! As for breakfast, do yourself the favour and try Parasagas ! We ended up there every morning !! Irina, can’t wait to come back ! Thank you !"; Veronique, New South Wales, Australia
"The house is even better than the photos would suggest. Our family of 4 had a wonderful time and loved Irina's beautifully restored and comfortable home. The views are spectacular and the location could not be more perfect - right in the Kastro section of the Chora. Irina and Maria were very helpful and gave us many suggestions including Papagali Restaurant at St. Nicholas beach, Amoudaki at Agali beach and Restaurant Chic in Chora. Our kids (10 and 5.5) loved the house and were fine navigating the stairs and keeping safe on the terraces. I would highly recommend this house to others. We are already planning for when we can return." Peter, Berkeley, USA
Folegandros ist eine wunderschöne Insel und dein Haus ist einmalig und traumhaft renoviert. Wir wären gerne länger geblieben!!
Zum Andenken habe ich mir einen herrlichen Ring von Fotis anfertigen lassen, der dich und das Haus ganz gut kennt. Wir haben viel Spaß mit ihm gehabt und es gab einen Ouzo und Raki und viele interessante Gespräche :)Danke für die schöne Zeit, alles Gute, Lissy"; Oberhausen, Deutschland
"We spent a fantastic week in the Cliff House, inspired by the unbelievable view from the location and the charm of the little village where the Cliff House is embedded. The ancient style of the cliff house is combined with modern functionality of the kitchen and the bathroom. Smooth support from Irina and her staff make it easy to kick off the vacation and start your journey to a Cyclades island which is hardly touched by tourism. Enjoying the restaurants in Chora and diving into the neighbourhood of the Cliff House makes the journey to an unforgettable event and actually you feel like a friend connected to the family of Chora.
No doubt we will come back next year."; Jens, Pulheim, Germany
"Irina's place is amazing and her cousin Maria made us feel very welcome upon arrival. We have been coming to Folegandros for over 10 years, but it was our first time staying in the Castro. This house is one of the very few that are both extremely central and that have an amazing view from the back terrace. The house is nicer in person than in the pictures." Emanuel, Zürich, Suisse
"Irina's 800 year old house is situated in the Kastro of Folegandros, which is directly constructed on the cliff. The view from her house is outstanding. The house has its own charm and character, nicely decorated rooms in which Irina put a lot of time and effort. The staircase which represent the time when the house was built, beautifully made in stone, but I wouldn't recommend to come with children or huge luggage. I love this Island and Irina's house thank you for having us. A special thank you to Maria which picked us up at the harbour, she is such a lovely person. See you soon." Martin, Paris, France
"This is an exceptional home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and look forward to our next trip! The views from the roof terrace are fantastic, and the location itself is probably ideal on Folegandros. Irina was also an excellent host, clearly communicating details about the house and island, and generally making our stay more comfortable." Mark, London, UK
"Staying in Irina's 800-year old house in the gorgeous, charming castro with a most spectacular view over the blue sea and the iconic white church perched on a cliff top was simply extraordinary, and just what we were dreaming of as we escaped the hustle and bustle in search for genuine cyladian island life. The host couldn't have been more helpful, having her cousin pick us up at the ferry and providing ample suggestions for lovely beaches and restaurants. The house is such a little gem - full of beautiful, full of character, clean and having all you need in terms of comfortable living right in the midst of Chora's ancient core. The little town too has preserved tons of charm and traditional beauty while having heaps of little restaurants for all times of the day and night. And last but not least, Folegrandros -- such a little paradise. All and all a fantastic stay that we would recommend to any and all. Thanks Irina!" Claire and Kris, Cambridge, UK
"Folegandros ist immer eine Reise wert! Nun ist die Anreise auch einfacher. Ostern 2016 in diesem Haus werden für mich immer unvergessen bleiben. Die Ruhe des Hauses, die beeindruckenden griechischen Osterfeiern....
Das Haus strahlt eine solche Ruhe aus. Hier kann ich endlich ganz tief schlafen. Beim Aufwachen dann einen Cafe mit diesem unglaublichen Meerblick. Schnell noch etwas für das Frühstück kaufen, auch kein Problem.
Wer Erholung sucht und auch gerne abends mal im Leben sein möchte, findet keinen besseren Ort.
Es war unglaublich schön. Danke an Irina für die Gastfreundschaft."; Iris, Köln, Deutschland
A house on an island, with poor water, a protective arch, is a huge challenge in the renovation and preservation. The renovation of the old house has often led me and my family to our borders.
All the more I am very delighted how you feel here. And how much good energy the place returns. Thanks for the effort also to write a few lines. This makes hosting even more joy.
Yours Irina Simos
