Gladys Visits Her Home Away From Home for the Holidays
The Townhouse Mykonos
Karen Holly Berliner
Following a thorough and intricate three year renovation and restoration project, led by London-based architect and interior designer Nader Gebran, the once historic Mykonos Mayor’s office, a UNESCO Heritage site, is now The Townhouse Mykonos, a brand new five-star luxury adults only boutique hotel in the center of the island of Mykonos’ town center.
Originally an 18th century aristocratic manor house in Manto Square and a stone’s throw from the island’s iconic windmills, this hotel features 19 rooms and suites, the 54 Cocktail Bar & Sunset Lounge and the premium fitness center, Pump Gym. Combining the building’s original neoclassical design with modern furnishings, high-tech comforts and top shelf personalized service and accoutrements, this property exceeds modern day expectations while preserving its original charm.
The choices are endless when planning your stay; you can take over all 19 rooms as a “private” home or perhaps a family holiday retreat, or stay in one of the seven different room categories (Superior Chic, Classic, Duplex, Junior and Sunset Suites, Luxury Town House Villa and Mykonian Suite), here expect to enjoy stylish Greek elegance and hospitality at every turn.
Townhouse guests have complimentary access to Pump Gym, Mykonos’ newest, full- service gym and only one located in the heart of town. Come the winter/holiday season, The Townhouse and Pump Gym will be offering a Winter Detox & Fitness Bootcamp program focusing on detox, weightless and nutrition, a perfect way to bring in the holidays.
