A complete agricultural stone complex of the late 19th century, with its intact “aloni”, was renovated with great respect and amplified with three new stone buildings, to form a contemporary high quality hotel for the discerning traveler.
Five independent, fully equipped residences, each totally unique in its layout, design and character, as well as a central building, compose a sophisticated setting of carefully crafted luxury and modern comfort. The visitor relaxes, in an atmosphere of “Cycladic Zen”.

Earthy colors and shades of white, combined with careful touches of linen and cotton fabrics, rare antiques, as well as special objects d’ art, compose a unique living area.
The private verandahs or courtyards, furnished with comfortable designer teak, offer unobstructed views of Hora, the Monastery and the Aegean.

The Folk Museum in Folegandros is such a renovated Themonia.
The Villa “Large Themonia”, of 72m2, is exactly what its name denotes.
