lodging

Fourni Island, Greece.

Small and characterful, the most pleasant hotel on Folégrandros is the -Kastro Hotel in the heart of the old Kastro, with raftered rooms, traditional furniture and beautiful views (open Apr–Oct, T./fax. 22860 41230, www.hotel castro.com). Anemomilos Studios (T. 22860 41309) and Artemis Rooms (T. 22860 41313), both at the beginning of the road up to the church of the Panaghia, are simpler, but pleasant and panoramic.Small and characterful, the most pleasant hotel on Folégrandros is the -Kastro Hotel in the heart of the old Kastro, with raftered rooms, traditional furniture and beautiful views (open Apr–Oct, T./fax. 22860 41230, www.hotel castro.com).

eating

Fourni Island, Greece.

Building on the fame of Fourni"s lobster-fishing fleet, the two main restaurants on the waterfront, Nikos (or more properly "Taverna Remezzo") and Miltos are popular and full with locals and visitors alike; both have undoubtedly good fish-dishes and are comparable in price and quality.
What they may lack in the homely touch can be found, however, inland along the main street under the mulberries, where To koutouki tou Psaradikou specialises in traditional, home-made oven dishes, such as papoutsaki (stuffed aubergine) and briam (a kind of Greek ratatouille).
O Kalokardos, beside the town"s main church of Aghios Nikolaos, is good for local wine and specialises in meat dishes. The fish taverna at Kamari is popular with islanders in the summer; like wise the little taverna Pilavaki in Chrysomilia.
