About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 130 sqm with ocean view overlooking the village of Petra

A corner in heaven!

In the most attractive area of Lesvos, overlooking the city of Petra, there is a small settlement, surrounded by walnut trees and poplars called Petri. Gifted with a breath-taking view, this is the place where time has stopped, a peaceful place waiting for you…

In spring and summertime Petri becomes an international haunt, since many foreigners have bought houses here.

At the corner of Petri, through a private road, you can find a beautiful traditional house, full of light, where you will enjoy the most enchanting sunset, with the sun diving into the sea every night…

Built on two levels, the house accommodates up to six guests, in three charming bedrooms at the second floor, provided with wooden floor and windows and a balcony overlooking the sea. All the rooms are furnished with taste, offering the most comfortable environment for a wonderful stay.

At the first floor, all covered in natural stone, a large living room with kitchen and fireplace is complemented by a cozy reading room. Outside, a large balcony and a flowery courtyard with view of Aegean Sea will be the perfect set for eating with your friends and family, for a great start in the morning, or a romantic dinner at night, cheered by the sound of nature.

Next to the house, you will find a traditional pottery workshop owned by the same family, where you will be able to see the whole procedure of ceramics crafting. If desired, a ceramic class can be arranged upon request.

The village of Petra, with its marvelous sandy beach, colorful tavernas, trendy bars, and restaurants is located only 5 minutes driving, or 30 minutes walking. Petra takes its name from the giant monolith located some distance inland and capped by the eighteenth-century church of Panagia Glykofiloussa, reached via 114 rock-hewn steps.

About Dimitris

I've been living in Lesvos for most of my life. I used to work as a math teacher for different high schools. Currently, I am retired and I enjoy studying new math software. I love reading books and I help my wife in her ceramic workshop. I have a daughter, who lives in Venice and is a graphic designer, and a son, who works as well in the pottery workshop.

Very nice setting, beatiful views of Petra. House has everything you need except dishwasher. Traditional greek house. A little secluded but good place to relax. Owners live next door so anything you'll need, they are there for help. Thanks to Dimitri and Giorgina.

Country elegance

  • 4 of 5

The villa is charming! Just remote enough but convenient to the local Taverna. The bed linens are crisp and the bed is firm and comfortable. The windows sparkle, the floors are gleaming and the furnishings are in good taste. Our hosts were a delight. The beaches of Petra are an easy drive down the hill.

Wonderful villa, great location, perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

Two families rented this lovely house for six days in July. From our first impression to our last moments at the house we didn't stop congratulating ourselves for finding such a wonderful place in such a perfect location. The hosts are very friendly and gracious. They joined us for some music, food and ouzo, and we had a blast. They are very talented potters, and make and sell very lovely pottery from their shop next door. The house is gorgeous and very well equiped, with AC, very comfortable beds, and a spectacular view. It is on a hill in the tiny village of Petri, just a couple kilometers from Petra, with its great beach and waterfront tavernas. And Molyvos is just a couple minutes drive. We also did day trips to Eressos, the petrified forest. There's also a hot springs right on the beach just past Molyvos. We loved this place and couldn't recommend it more highly.
