Our Green Awards

We are very proud to have received the Green Key Award for our Eco-Friendly Practices as well as the Monachous Monachous seal privation award since our hotel is involved in the seal protection plan.

The sea between Fiscardo and Ithaki, where the water is 165m deep, is home to the Mediterranean Seal Monachus Monachus. Its existence dates all the way back to Homer. It seeks refuge in sea-caves and lives on fish and octopuses. It usually gives birth to only one seal pup. This likeable animal is threatened with extinction, partly due to illegal fishing practices, but mainly to the development of tourism. It is the duty of each one of us to avoid disturbing the seals and to report to the authorities anything we think may be harmful to the defenseless animals.

3% OF OUR ANNUAL REVENUE IS DONATED TO THE PROTECTION OF MONACHOUS MONACHOUS SEAL!

As part of our ongoing commitment, we are dedicated to developing our environmental policies further.
