|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
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 .
For us this was just what the doctor ordered, a lovely villa in a beautiful part of the island, we were able to travel anywhere within a reasonable time, we shopped in Mytilene town, took a trip up to Molyvos which was also a good day out , more shopping!
We will be going back in 2016 and will be glad to see Alexis again, the villa is well equipped and furnished, very clean and tidy, clean sheets and towels every other day nothing was to much trouble for Alexis or our maid, she was great !
The private beach is top notch with sun beds day beds and hammocks, plus kayaks, and bikes if needed, also for walking and wildlife.

Ein wunderbares Gelände direkt am Golf.
Ein nahezu perfekter Service, der vom Abholen am Flughafen (wenn man über Lesvoscars gebucht hat) einem wunderbaren Empfangspaket, der regelmäßigen Reinigung des Hauses bis zu den frischen Handtüchern reicht. Alexis, der Besitzer, kümmert sich um alle Belange die auftreten, gibt Ratschläge zum Einkaufen, Besichtigen, Herumreisen. Seine Frau Katarina und er bilden den sozialen Anker für uns Fremde, die kein griechisch sprechen. Beide verkörpern persönlich griechische Gastfreundschaft, ungetrübt durch die Griechenlandkrise.
Der Urlaubsort ist ideal für Menschen, die keinen Trubel im Urlaub wollen, die dennoch schnell in der Stadt sind, wo man alle frischen Lebensmittel bekommt. Man kann am Strand liegen, grenzenlos schwimmen, sich im Olivengarten ausruhen oder Ausflüge über die ganze Insel unternehmen.

A perfect place for perfect Holidays for people, who want to spend calm holidays without touristic entertainment. A very hospitable customer service. I don't hesitate to recommend this property without any restriction.
My wife and I stayed for the first week in May. We were met at the airport by Alexis, the owner, who was charming and helpful throughout. The villa exceeded our expectations being situated in an old olive grove close to the bay of Gera and luxuriously appointed. He provided essentials like bread, butter, eggs, etc., for our first morning, also his own excellent olive oil, olives and home made sherry.
Each day we explored the beautiful island of Lesbos marvelling at the wild flowers, ancient olive groves, perfect weather and many bird species that were new to us.
The evenings we spent dining at tavernas recommended by Alexis.
A hire car is essential and we rented a Renault Clio from Enterprise which worked out perfectly, being met at the airport by a courier as they do not have an airport office. A smaller car is perhaps preferable as the roads, particularly through the villages, are extremely narrow.
All in all it was a magical experience and our only regret was that a week was not long enough.
We stayed in the 55sqm villa for one week in June 2014. The place ticked all the boxes for us: super-clean, comfortable, traditional, quiet, close to water. What came as a huge bonus was Alexis' knowledge of the island and his great tips what to see, what to do and where to eat. The taverna that's just some 15 min walk from the villa has exceptional food (best tzatziki we've had in Greece) and it's also located right by the water.
The location of the villa is superb:olive grove gives everybody privacy and you can see the gulf while having your breakfast/lunch/dinner on the terrace.
There are traditional Greek thermal baths about 7 minute drive from the villa - amazing for any back pains or stress.
The villa itself is very clean and comfortable. There is A/C, wi-fi, TV, full bath and fully equipped kitchen.
Upon arrival there was olive oil (produced by Alexis), bread, butter, eggs, coffee and other necessities waiting for us, which was really helpful as we arrived late and didn't have to rush to the shops first thing in the morning.
All we can say is that we had one of the best holidays ever and can't wait to go back next year.
Last but not least, we used Sixt car rental and ended up with a crappy, old Daewoo, so if you are renting a car you'll be better off with Alexis' recommendation, which we will definitely do next time we go.
The property was wonderful, excellent facilities - very clean (and regularly cleaned and fresh bedding and towels provided throughout our stay) the owner has decorated and furnished to a very high standard. It has a wonderful large, secluded terrace with views of the gulf (2 minute walk to the private beaches belonging to the estate) and set in an olive grove with some lovely landscaping. The sea was clean and clear and considering the time of year not too cold!
The owners could not have been more helpful and friendly, without being overbearing. We arrived to a wonderful reception within the property of breakfast items, fresh coffee, olive oil from the estate – ideal as we arrived on the first flight of the day from Athens. They both made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. They have an extensive knowledge of the island and things to do, although we found it so relaxing at the accommodation that we spent many days just enjoying sitting on our terrace, enjoying the views, the peace and quiet, reading and cooking with the wonderful local foods.
The local Greek restaurant is walking distance with good food (excellent fish) - for anything else you will need a hire car. Mytilini is then only 10 minutes away with its cafes, shopping and good restaurants.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Both my partner and I have travelled extensively throughout our lives, and this is one of the few and far between places that we want to go back to as soon as we can. Our holiday here was perfect.
A good, clean, simple, well-maintained little one-bedroomed house (55m2), private but not isolated, supported by the delightful Katerina and Alexis, who know everything there is to know about the island. There is even a proper bath, and a proper hair-dryer. But you must hire a car. The local taverna is a two minute drive and is good, the city of Mytilini about 10 minutes drive.
The estate is essentially an olive grove, with ? five tasteful and well separated stone holiday cottages. There is a clean shingle beach shared with the other houses on the estate, but usually empty, with good safe swimming and magnificent views across the Gulf.
Generally, can't think of anything to complain about - oh yes, the kitchen lacked a decent chopping board.
Elaionas Nikou is 7km far from Mytilini, the capital of the island, where the visitor can do shopping, visit museums (archaeological, Theophilos and Teriade modern art), churches, the old city and the traditional market, the old harbour, the medieval castle, and to have a delicious lunch in a fish tavern. In the evening one can have a romantic dinner in a restaurant and then continue with a cocktail in a beach-bar. For swimming, close to the city, one can go to Haramida beach, or Agios Ermogenis. Also, in 4km from Elaionas, one can visit the hot spring Therma, have a hot bath and perhaps massage. In small distance from Elaionas there are a lot of excellent fish taverns, that serve the traditional plates of Lesvos. Within approx. half an hour from Elaionas, one can visit very beautiful traditional villages and enjoy the rich nature of the island that changes from place to place.
