Hotel Castro, located inside the old section of the medieval Castle (Castro), is part of the northern defensive side of the fortress of Folegandros, which served as a defensive fort as well as residence protecting the population against hostile raids and piratical invasions.
Hotel Castro is the patrimonial house of the Danassi’s family, owned by them for the last five generations. It is a part of the northern side of the medieval Castle (Castro) and it is structured on levels according to the morphology of the ground. More precisely, its north side is located on a cliff with a vertical height of 130 meters above the sea level. Its south side has a fantastic view of Chora (the central town of the island) while the rooms in the ground floor, with their porches, communicate with the small road of the Castro area. Quoting the words of the famous Greek modern painter Alekos Fassianos written in our Guestbook:
"Here,you live into the medieval life, regenerated with the real picture of the past time"
Hotel Castro is included in the traditional lodgings,
