Elaionas Nikou is a beautiful olive grove estate, in the embrace of the amazing Gera Gulf at the South-eastern part of Lesvos island. A shelter of harmony and peacefulness, at the SEAFRONT of the crystal clear waters of the gulf. Amongst the olive trees, the fruit trees and the flowers, the autonomous traditional stone-built residences of the resort are placed amphitheatre for privacy with stunning views of the gulf. Each house has its own style and it is decorated with respect to the island's traditions and architecture with some exceptional antiques of the family, while at the same time provide all the comforts of modern living. The resort has its own 'private' beaches for swimming and relaxation under the trees. Two different types of residences are offered:1bedroom/1bathroom (55m2), 2bedrooms/2bathrooms (72m2), all with fully equipped kitchen and large living room with fireplace. Their huge verandas offer majestic views.
Elaionas in Greek means Olive Grove. The farm is certified organic and produces high quality olive oil. Many of the olive trees are over 200 years old and are themselves artistic natural sculptures.
In the estate there are also almond, fig, apricot, quince and other fruit trees, that give special flavour to olive oil.
Walking around, in the farm, you will be fascinated by the smell of wild herbs like oregano, thyme, rosemary, etc.. In the gardens of the houses we have planted verbena, sage, mint, marjoram, peppermint, basil , etc.. We also have organic vegetable garden for our use and for our customers. So living in the nature and protacting the environment is our way of life.
Here famous artists have been entertained, such as the painter Yannis Tsarouchis, the Nobel price winner for literature Odysseus Elytis, the painter critic Teriant, while others have placed on canvas the beauty of the area such as Manolis Kaligiannis, Agathe Bunz and Oreste Kanellis.
Alexis and Katerina Nikou, the owners, made their life dream come true in this project with love, importance to the detail and soul. The propensity of Alexis to gastronomy and good life will be an pleasant surprise to you during your stay here.
The resort has a small inflatable boat, length 3m., for small escapes in the gulf and fishing and also the speedboat of the owner, for excursions (after arrangement).
The complex has a waste water treatment plant, from which we water the flowers. All the lamps are energy saving. We use drip irrigation system for saving water. In the fireplaces we use wood from the pruning of the trees .
