Themonies Luxury Suites is a new luxury hotel in Folegrandros Hora in one of the most well-preserved islands of the Cyclades. Recently renovated, the original 19th-century stone houses are complimented by the 3 newer stone buildings, which thoughtfully blend with the surrounding landscape.

Natural colours & fabrics, courtyards and verandahs create a peaceful, private feel, while you are only a short walk from the central square of Hora and 2 km from sandy beaches.
In keeping with the untouched beauty of Folegandros, your hosts have maintained an eco-friendly approach in the building and upkeep of these luxury suites. The architecture is optimised to maintain a stable temperature and let in natural light and the new buildings were built using locally-sourced materials and local techniques. Environmentally-friendly paints & cleaning products and low-water consumption landscaping are among the other ecological ideas used. This unforgettable island, surrounded by the inviting blue-green Aegean Sea is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, family exploration or holiday with friends.
