Ampelos resort is located outside one of the most beautiful villages in Greece called Hora. Hora is a fortress from the 13th century, built on the side of the mountain 250 m above the blue ocean. Hora is also known as the "Balcony to the Aegean Sea".

Ampelos Resort is located at the edge of the city, right next to the grazing lambs and the vines climbing the olive trees. We are an 6 min walk from the center of Hora, a shaded plaza with a colorful tavern atmosphere. A quiet and yet picturesque location with close proximity to the taverns, plazas, stores and bus stop.

The Interior

We have designed the rooms to be as cozy and comfortable and with all the amenities you will need. All the rooms have a queen size bed and six of them include a single bed/sofa.

Each room includes:

  • Bar area with refrigerator and tea kitchen outfit
  • Small marble table with farm-style chairs
  • Vanity with an old fashioned mirror
  • Wi-Fi
  • Television and radio
  • Climate controlled air conditioner and heater
  • Private bathroom with shower
  • Hair dryer

In front of each room you will have a balcony with a breathtaking view to the white village of Hora and the mountain monastery Panagia. Most of the rooms also have a view of the Aegean Sea and the group of islands - Serifos, Sifnos, Strongilos, Antiparos, Paros and Naxos.

The Exterior

As you approach Ampelos Resort you will first notice the old farmhouse with its rough stonewalls. From there you will see the little plaza with the theater built on an old threshing place, and next to the infinity swimming pool. The whole area is surrounded by a green slate patio, however, you will be distracted by the view overlooking the ancient city of Hora.

Around the plaza you will find 10 small whitewashed rooms that have been designed as theirown little village. There is also a common room and reception next to the proprietors villa.

There are two arches that lead into separate small gardens making them a perfect spot for a BBQ, watching the sunset or relaxing with a good book.

Everywhere you will notice our focus on creating a resort which reflects the ancient heritage and the culture of the Cyclades.

Our Villa

We now also offer for you to stay in our own personal Villa. This is our private holiday home on Folegandros and we have equipped it with classic furniture, beautiful antiques, artwork and decorations.

The Villa is two floors:

  • On the main floor is a large dining room and living room with a traditional stone wall. The dining room table can seat 10 or more people with a view to Hora and the ocean.
  • The main floor has a very large kitchen with a cooking island in the center and all amenities. A great place to jointly prepare a large meal or enjoy a snack around the cooking island. There is also a guest bathroom on this floor.
  • Upstairs is the bedroom, large enough for an extra mattress. There are 3 balconies on this floor with magnificent views over Folegandros as well as the neighbor islands.
  • Our small wine cellar is in development - this will be a very cozy place for a candlelight hour with good wine and snacks.
  • Outside the Villa there is a private balcony that can be used for sunbathing, grilling or entertainment.
  • The Villa is a part of the hotel and its guests enjoy the same services including the pool, breakfast buffet (5 euro per person) and other hotel facilities.
