OUR ISLAND HOME
Gundari is nestled on the Folegandros’ south-eastern coast, a stone’s throw from the small village of Petousis, the first agricultural settlement on the island. Conveniently close to Chora, yet far enough away to offer luxurious seclusion. Here, you can truly immerse yourself in glorious nature, in an area famed as a resting spot for birds migrating between Europe and Africa.
HOW TO GET HERE
Well-connected Folegandros can be reached by regular daily ferries from Athens, Santorini (just 50 minutes away by fast ferry), Milos and all major destinations in the Cyclades.
If you prefer to arrive in style, we can arrange private helicopter transfers from Athens and the surrounding Aegean islands or send our luxury boat to transport you over from Santorini, Milos, Paros, Sifnos and other nearby ports.
Gundari is 3km from Chora, 5km from the port and 2km from the heliport.
