The TownHouse, formerly a neo-classical aristocratic home is one of the oldest buildings in Mykonos Town. The hotel is set in Manto Mavrogenous Square named after the Greek heroin who became the only woman to be honoured with the title of ‘General-in-Chief’. She devoted her entire personal fortune to support the struggle for Greek independence, a decision that pitted her against her own family.
Today, thankfully… things are a little more relaxed. The stylish Townhouse Hotel is situated in a enviable and highly privileged position within the vibrant, colourful harbour. Notably the building we now occupy featured as the backdrop for the Shirley Valentine market scene – so for those secret Shirley Valentines among you this is the perfect spot to explore the ancient settlement, and assuming you don’t get wonderfully lost amidst the labyrinth of whitewashed streets Little Venice and the island’s iconic windmills are a mere 500 metres away.
The TownHouse is conveniently located only 250 metres from the entrance to the Chora Old Town, where our airport transfers will drop you off (cars are not permitted in the town during the tourist season) and one of our porters will meet you to bring your luggage. The town is a pedestrian-only area and living within it adds an authenticity that can be missed in many of the larger beach resorts.
If you do hire a car, there is a free car park is located just 500 metres walk from the property…. parking in Mykonos can be difficult during high season so having this close to the property can be a huge plus.
Mykonos itself is a small island, so any distance can be easily covered with beaches and destinations such as Scorpios, Alemagou, Principote, Blue Marlin, Jack O Beach, Paradise and others reached within ten to fifteen minutes. Shirley Valentines infamous beach (and rock) are located at Agios Ioannis around fifteen minutes drive.
Travelling by car from one side of the island to the other should take no more than half an hour. The hotels Concierge is on standby to assist you with any plans including, car, boat or charter rentals. Delos (the birth place of Apollo) and Rhenia island can be easily reached by boat from the harbour.
On Fabrica Square, guests will find the main bus terminus from where you can reach any of the main Mykonos’s beaches. This is just 750 metres away from the hotel, or 10 minutes on foot.
Mykonos Airport as well as the New Port (if you’re island hopping) is just 3 kilometres away, and can be reached by car or taxi in just ten minutes. The main island taxi rank is also just 100 metres away from the hotel.
The TownHouse is truly a hidden gem in the heart of the picturesque, cosmopolitan and residential old town. Simply perfect for those who wish to enjoy a real flavour of life in Mykonos while enjoying every possibly luxury and levels of personal service characteristic of a luxury boutique.
