We stayed at Molyvos Cottage for a week in July. The first thing to say is that we were welcomed very warmly by Nana and Stratis – the family who own the cottage and who are very lovely.
The cottage is located amongst olive trees and beautiful flowers behind a gated driveway so it is very quiet and peaceful. It is on one level and spacious with a fully equipped kitchen.
The cottage and bedrooms were very comfortable and the storage space was generous. The only slight drawback is that there is no air conditioning – that said, fans are provided and they are very effective so, it was no issue for us.
The cottage has use of a good pool which is just a few yards away next to Nana & Stratis’s house and we used this a number of times. There is a small possy of cats who live there but who keep their distance, apart from the wonderful Uru who is a charming thing and who visited us at the cottage next door most days.
Nana very kindly provided us with lunch treats on the days we sat by the pool – a wonderful stuffed courgette dish and also a courgette pie – made from their own produce and extremely tasty.
The town is a walk away – probably 10 mins walk (we drove) , and a few mins longer if you want to get to the harbour
So, for us it was a great comfortable location to completely chill out, relax, read and take a dip in the pool and we would certainly recommend it if this is your goal.
If you are looking for a sublime venue in a lovely traditional Greek village, Molyvos Manor has it all. I have spent 8 springs in the house which is furnished in a traditional style with all the modern conveniences. The terrace of the house is ideal for relaxation, elegant dining or just downing a glass of ouzo with friends. The pool is a fairly recent addition that allows for relaxation and exercise on those bright sunny & warm days. Additionally, the upstairs master suite is elegant with stunning views of the harbor and the western expanse of the island of Lesvos. All in all, this is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the delights of Greece from another era.
“We have just concluded our sixth consecutive summer holiday at Molyvos Manor and we plan on returning every year. Why look elsewhere when this is the near perfect place to enjoy everything we love about Greece and the island of Lesvos. Thank you again to the Krallis family for your wonderful hospitality!”
