Folegandros, the elegant
Folegandros is a hidden gem in the Cyclades, perfect for summer romance. It is an island of wild beauty with a charming main town and breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea. We recommend renting a car to travel around or exploring the island through its hiking trails. Folegandros combines a low-key vibe and a classy lifestyle that make it a classic for couples.

Koufonisia, the idyllic
Koufonisia is an ideal destination for quiet beach holidays. Ano Koufonisi is small and cute, you can easily walk everywhere on the island and it has plenty of romantic hotels and apartments to choose from. The beaches are amazing and the food is delicious. Kato Koufonisi is more secluded, quiet, and ideal for day trips or an overnight stay under the starry sky.
