Uncompromising horizons, landscapes sculpted by the wind and by solitude, rocky beaches you can only walk or sail to, but also “glamorous rituals” like fish and ouzo evenings in the small squares of Chora, a tangle of white houses built around the old Kastro and the church of Aghios Nikolaos. On Folegandros island, despite its latest success as a tourist destination, very little has changed.
The villas were built according to sustainable architecture and green housing standards
The building covers 180 m2 and consists two semi-detached independent (the installations are separate) and “off-grid” houses, not connected to the public electricity and water supply; the two houses are equipped with very modern photovoltaic installations (provided with built-in wind turbine and accumulators) for the production of electricity and with solar installations combined with fireboxes (powered by both wood and pellets) for the production of sanitary hot water and for the heating of buildings. For hot water the houses are also provided with water tanks (600 liters per house). They have two cellars where part of the installations is located and equipped with a separate “utility room” that can also be used as a laundry.
Each villa has a large living room, an open-plan kitchen, two double bedrooms (with 160 x 200 queen-size beds), and each with its own en-suite bathroom.
A very large veranda surrounds each villa and there is a common in-between covered area with a barbeque and a large table and sofas.
Free private parking is available.
Installations, finishes, furniture and accessories are top-range (kitchen tops/backs of 3cm thick Brown Antique Granite, floors, bathroom (ceiling) cladding and bases of classic 2cm thick polished travertine, extra-luxury bathroom accessories (WC with soft-close seat, Indonesian marble washbasins, tempered crystal stall showers with glazed handles, shower heads with 3cm-thick water-saving shower tray etc.
In what concerns furniture, only products in line with regulations protecting consumer health were selected (E1 class according to the strict German directive DIBt100).
Household appliances are all energy-saving (induction cooktops) and installations can be remotely monitored, via PC tablet or smartphone, to view in real time production and consumption data, as well as the battery charging status). The villas have a satellite Wi-Fi Internet system, LG 43’’ Led TV, Sony 4K blue ray DVD readers with some movies, Bose Solo5Audio TV system with Bluetooth.
