Few places in Greece, have this kind of view, the tiny picturesque fishing harbour to the left, and then across the straits of Toukmakia to the purple hills of Turkey. Just open the door and walk straight out on to the beach at magical Scala Mystegna. And what a beach it is - the beautiful white pebbles, truly crystal blue waters of the Aegean, without the crowds. These stylish new two storey villa-apartments have a touch of luxury and have been decorated with care. The Kyparissis Beach Houses offer a special kind of seclusion - It's as if the beach is your own.
Testimonials: June/July 06: It can be risky booking a holiday on the internet and may not live up to expectation.
Our stay here has exceeded expectation – the beautiful house, so tastefully and thoughtfully renovated with absolutely everything provided, to a very high standard;
The fantastic position just metres from the sea; the peace and quiet; the friendliness of the locals.
It has been just perfect - Sue and Nikolas Tsoukala - U.K.
12-9 -2006: A wonderful authentically Greek holiday with all the perfect ingredients; beach on the doorstep, solitude if you desire it, and luxury apartment, splendid tavernas to choose from and sheep, goats and even donkeys wandering free. It’s good to live amongst the local people here and be so warmly welcomed by them. We’ll be back for sure - Bryan and Shirley.
Mytilene (the capital of the island): You are also only twenty minutes drive from Mytilene, where is the seaport and Airport is, and a sophisticated city with lots to do, day and night, outstanding sight-seeing, cultural attractions (castles, museums, kafeneon), shopping or night life (hot bars or authentic traditional bouzoukia). From the seaport of Mytilene there are daily boat trips to Turkey.
Thermal springs: Only ten minutes drive from the Kyparissis Beach Houses is Thermi one of the unique locations of thermal springs on the island (open mainly for the summer season). The waters are hot, mineral laden and said to have extensive therapeutic qualities, especially for those suffering from bone or muscle problems.
A slightly more sophisticated thermal bath house (or hamam) is located at Therma, located on the Gulf of Gera (approximately20 minutes by car). Here, not only can you soak away your aches and pains in the thermal pool, but also partake in relaxing therapeutic activities (including mud baths) by a registered masseuse specializing in holistic massage and Reiki, Thai massage and aromatherapy. (open all year round)
I am Australian even though i feel Greek because I have been here most of my life.
My mother visited Molyvos and met a Greek fisherman and married him. What was so amazing all those years ago what that Giogios (my step father) married a divorced women who had children. Ever seen the Shirley Valentine movie well that was my mother before the movie was even made.
My mother Jenifer married Giogios the Greek fisherman (which he was, just retired) and we moved to Greece in1972 .We have been visiting since 1968.. (Maybe i shouldn’t write dates as this shows my age)
I was brought up in Athens and Molyvos. Molyvos because it was my step fathers village which we all love and spent every holiday here.
I have worked with tourism all my life and feel that what is missing is quality accommodation for people who love Greece and want to experience the real Greek life and stay in self catering houses that are comfortable and affordable.
I am happily married with 3 children, there is much more to the story but if you want more details you will just have to come and visit us.
I feel unique as i know of many Greeks that have gone to Australia and other countries but i don’t know of any Australians that have been brought up in Greece.
Kyprassis beach houses are names after my great grand father. My Greek family were brought up here and there are many fond memories which we have been told about
The houses are right on the beach and the fact that you can walk out of your bedroom/ living room directly on to the beach and jump into the sea and this makes these houses rare.
We feel very close to these beach houses as they are something near to our hearts.
Waking up in the morning to a beautiful day with the soft sound of waves. The relaxing view. Spending the day swimming and unwinding watching the small fishing boats. Evening sunset across the bay. Lying in bed at night and falling asleep to the calming swish of waves.
