The Townhouse Mykonos is a luxury five key, 18th century historic manor house, that has been lovingly restored by international architect Nader Gebran and is represented by the Elegant Hotel Collection. It is the only TownHouse located in the heart of the ancient settlement of Mykonos town. The area is protected by a range of archaeological regulations that we adhere to.

We are committed to achieving best practice in environmental and social sustainability. Our Green policies cover all aspects of the hotels operation, ranging from laundry and plastics to water, power consumption and recycling. We also offer charitable rates for customers to wish to donate to charity as part of their own social responsibility initiative.


We are currently supporting Mykonos Animal Welfare and the UNESCO plant a billion trees initiative.

Mykonos Animal Welfare

Mykonos Animal Welfare is a charity formed in 2005. Since then it has been actively involved in the health and welfare of animals on the island of Mykonos.

The main objectives are education, sterilizations, emergency vet care, feeding and rehoming of abandoned cats and dogs. In the last fifteen years they have sterilized and helped tens of thousands of animals including stray cats, dogs, pelicans, birds, reptiles, ducks, owls, snakes, donkeys and horses.

Plant for the Planet

The Plant-for-the-Planet children and youth initiative was launched in January 2007 after Wangari Maathai and the UNEP had called to action via the Billion Tree Campaign.

At the end of his school presentation about the current climate crisis, nine-year-old Felix Finkbeiner announced his vision to his classmates: “Let’s plant one million trees in every country on earth!”

The current goal of the children and youth initiative is to plant a trillion trees worldwide. Trees are the cheapest and most effective means of binding CO2, allowing us more time to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero and mitigate the climate crisis.

In 2011, UNEP handed over the Billion Tree Campaign, along with the official world tree counter, to the youth-led Plant-for-the-Planet Foundation. As the children’s aim is now to plant a trillion trees, they transformed the Billion Tree Campaign into the Trillion Tree Campaign and developed an interactive online tool that motivates others to get involved in planting (

So far, more than 13 billion trees in 193 countries have been planted. The children of Plant-for-the-Planet teach and empower others to become Climate Justice Ambassadors. More than 81,000 children from 73 countries are already participating.

Social and Environmental Responsibility

We all have a social and environmental responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint:

  • We constantly change our policies based on advise to minimize our carbon footprint and impact on the local environment.
  • We raise awareness of the impact of hotel operations on the environment and encourage staff to carry out sustainable business practices through informing and involving them at induction and regular training sessions.
  • We support the island community, and where possible both employ from and purchase from local companies who have been carefully selected based on their values.
  • We minimize waste throughout the hotel following strict procedures in the food, beverage and other operational areas.
  • Energy consumption is reduced throughout the hotel through regulated key access connectivity
  • We operate a ‘switch off’ policy for office staff to turn off computer equipment and printers when not in use.
  • We adopt a Linen policy, changing bedding every two days unless requested otherwise, towels are changed daily or on turndown where necessary
  • We avoid single use plastics for hotel toiletries
  • We further limit the use of plastics by providing glass bottle alternatives where possible
  • We reduce usage of harmful cleaning chemicals and replacing these with eco-friendly products wherever possible.
  • We have reduced our usage of paper by attempting to be as digital as possible
  • We also provide and use bamboo based straws and packs for hotel dental kits, shaving kits and other items
  • Recycling paper, newspapers, glass, batteries, fluorescent and long life bulbs, cans and cartridges.

All these procedures allow us to tackle the following challenges we all face today:

  • Complying with legal principles
  • Committing to Fairtrade principles
  • Raising awareness among our team and guests
  • Protecting natural resources
  • Minimising our carbon footprint
  • Serving future generations’ best interests
