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 amazing. One of the best airbnb's we have stayed at.
The view is absolutely spectacular and the house (for its age) is amazing well designed.
Irina was so helpful at addressing our every need. I would recommend the Cliffhouse to anyone!
If on Folegandros, this is the location you want to be !
This small house is quite unique, very well equipped and is accurately described by the lovely owner. The house has been furnished and refurbished with care and flair! The location is amazing right in the middle of the Castro and the view is to die for!
Highly recommend it.
This is a spectacular house perched right on the cliff top. Location is amazing and the house is beautifully done.
Would come back in a heartbeat!
Everything Perfect at a Perfect Place! Best Place to stay at the Island!
Most beautiful chora of the cyclades living directly in the Center!
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.
"Irena’s Cliff House was charming and very neat and clean. Fabulous views of the sea. Choral was a delightful town with good restaurants. We loved the many balconies and extra touches. Found the steep steps between the bath area and bedrooms a bit of a challenge, especially at night. Especially appreciated the House being ready when we arrived at 10am."; Don, Dincinnati, Ohio
"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
"Irinas house is extraordinary beautiful ! Not only the wonderful interior design which emphasizes the ancient architecture and matches the classic materials like stone and wood but the breathtaking panoramic view made our stay unforgettable ! The house is equipped with everything you may need and decorated in an simple authentic local style and lots of lovely details. It is located in the quiet area of Castro but only a few steps away from the Center of Chora if you decide to leave the beautiful terrace to get some delicious food in one of the many restaurants Chora offers. Irina ist a very nice and thoughtful host, she provided us with many useful informations about the house and island. Our communication and the Check in were perfekt. We recommend her place highly and love to come back !" Abigail, Rantrum, Germany
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 neighborhood 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
ein Ferienhaus auf einer Insel, mit wenig Wasser, einer schützenswerten Archäologie ist in der Renovierung und Erhaltung eine riesige Herausforderung. Die Renovierung des alten Hauses hat mich und meine Familie oftmals an unsere Grenzen geführt.
Umso mehr freue ich mich, wie wohl Sie sich hier fühlen. Und wieviel gute Energie der Ort zurück gibt. Danke für die Mühe auch ein paar Zeilen zu schreiben. So macht das Gastgeben gleich noch mehr Freude.
Ihre Irina Simos
