At Townhouse Lefkada environmental awareness has been a priority from the design of the building, to its construction and operation.
The plot orientation, choice of materials, construction methods, selection and installation of mechanical equipment, as well as the operation design of each apartment, were carefully considered and implemented towards an environmentally friendly building.
The main features applied are:
Atrium & staircase
From the beginning of the architectural design, natural ventilation and sunlight of the building played an important role. Inside the Townhouse Lefkada there is an atrium that offers rich natural light and fresh air to the staircase, the public corridors, and the building as a whole.
The east and west sides of the building are covered with vertical blinds that
shade the large openings of the apartments, reducing the possibility of
overheating, while standing as a distinct feature of the building.
Heat pump and solar panels
The air conditioning of the accommodation is done with a heat pump through
a heat recovery system which ensures greater energy savings. In addition,
the pump is operated by ecological refrigerant and the technology prevents
coolant from being discharged into the atmosphere.
Solar panels are the main hot water supply system, achieving the lowest
possible energy consumption.
Water treatment system
The water in the Townhouse Lefkada is treated with a special system which removes
mineral content from the water supply network. This minimizes the water hardness that can damage devices, prolonging their lifespan. In addition, the water you use does not dry out your hair, skin, or clothes. Caution it is not recommended to drink tap water.
Let’s reduce the plastic we consume!
The tap water of Lefkada is not recommended for drinking. In our bar, however, we have installed an additional water treatment system (reverse osmosis system) that turns water into drinking water, minimizing the need for bottled water.
Appliances and energy saving
All our appliances are high energy class ensuring low energy consumption.
Lighting and energy saving
The interior and exterior lighting of the building is done with LED lamps

lighting of the building as well as the water in the automatic watering of the
We support local suppliers and craftsmen
From the construction stage to interior design, we made every effort to work with local craftsmen and domestic producers. Most of the building materials, furniture, lighting, bedding, toiletries etc. are from well-known and reputable domestic companies.

At Townhouse we do total recycling, collecting household waste from paper,
glass, and plastic separately in the bins that you will find in each apartment,
but also in all public areas.
