About Richard Bosley

We owned Galliano Italian Restaurant near harbour since 2000 and have long association with Molivos

Richard Bosley purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Richard Bosley chose Aegean Islands

The apartment is centrally located, it's nice when you are on holiday in Molivos to feel like you are really on holiday in Greece, here you will be living among local Greek residents rather than other foreign tourists.

Reduced rate for 2 person booking or long stay bookings.

What makes this apartment unique

Take a walk early morning to the local bakery for freshly baked bread or pastries, pop to a local mini market, it is all nearby.

Lesbos is the third largest Greek island and is the perfect place to visit for people who want to experience real Greece & can be reached by charter or flight only. Molivos is on the northern tip of the island, the town is dominated by the Byzantine castle. Narrow cobbled streets offer a selection of shops,cafes and tavernas in the Agora (market area) and wind down to the picturesque harbour. Molivos has its own shingle beach but a few metres into the water it changes to soft sand, turn around & you have fantastic view of the town and castle. There is a small park with swimming pool by the sea and watersports are available. In spring /autumn Lesbos is famous for birdwatching, around Molivos there are many places to walk and see beautiful wild flowers and admire the views. Nightlife is typically Greek with live music bars and open air disco by the beach for the youngsters, an open air cinema with films in English mid season plus wide choice of interesting bars & cafes in the town.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodation! The website is accurate but understated. This was our fourth visit to Molyvos and we've never stayed anywhere as special - the short ( but steep and good for the legs) climb up the hill is well worth it for the spectactular views from the terrace ( the word balcony doesn't do it justice). You have everything you need and Lana and her family are on hand if you need them, but totally discreet. In short, I couldn't recommend the place highly enough!

Excellent apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was even better than we imagined from the description on the website. Its is spacious, clean and homely. The panoramic views from the terrace are amazing! We enjoyed stunning sunsets whilst relaxing and eating-we even invited friends to a barbeque on the terrace. The sun loungers were an extra bonus! The apartment is well located in the village amongst the local villagers; it was very quiet whilst we were there. It is only a few minutes walk to the restaurants and centre of the village, five minutes to the beach. The lovely winding cobbled streets are very steep, but we didn't find this a problem; good for the calf muscles! We were met by the owner's son who was always available if we needed to contact him during our stay. We visited the owner's restaurant, Galliano, just outside the lovely harbour. The food there was excellent. We have been visiting Molivos for many years and can recommend this village as a piece of unspoilt Greece and this apartment is by far the best we have ever stayed in.

Just what we were hoping for

  • 5 of 5

We were at Lana and Richard's apartment in Molivos in early May 2011, The weather was a bit mixed, but it was a great stay in all regards. The flat is large and well-appointed, (excellent kitchen, for instance) with a huge terrace, allowing lots of choice depending on winds, and preferences for shade or sun. We loved sitting out there watching the swifts zip around, and on a couple of days there was a small owl ensconced on a nearby chimney. Molivos is an appealing place -- just big enough to provide some variety in places to eat and drink. The wild flowers in the large field just beyond town (near the cemetary) were spectacular at the time we were there, and we also had a couple of lovely long walks in the other direction. We also enjoyed the day we drove around other parts of the island. Lana was still in England, but she was extremely helpful as far as getting us set up. Richard was just opening up the restaurant, so busy, but he was always there when we needed him, and we enjoyed visiting with him and learning more about the island on our visits to the restaurant (when he wasn't dashing between other tables!). They are very pleasant people. We would certainly recommend this place to others.

Our holidays in Molivos

  • 5 of 5

Last summer was our first time in Molivos and has been a perfect holiday. The apartment is very nice, large, clean, with every confort; unforgottable is the enormous balcony where is amazing to stay and enjoy the the landscape of the gulf and the sunset. We loved to stay there also at night. The atmosphere is great and the place is very quiet. The apartment is in the middle of the village, so everything (shops, restaurants) is easily reachable, also the beach with the amazing sea.

The owners, Lana, Richard and their family are always ready to help even if they are really busy with theyr Italian Restaurant, Galliano, ,which, by the way, is really good and the pizza is great! (We are italians!).We had a wonderful time and now a great memory, hoping to return there in the future.

Fabulous apartment in Molivos, Lesvos, Greece !!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is fantastic! It is simply not possible to capture in pictures. Excellent location in the center of the village, close to bakery, shops, cafes & restaurants, ATMs, beach (5 minute walk). The apartment feels very spacious with big windows and lots of light. The wrap-around porch is great -- you can choose to be in the sun or shade and there is a great table for eating outdoors. The porch and the thick walls keep the apartment nice and cool. The bedrooms are nice sized and there is a private bath with shower in each bedroom. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking in. The washing machine is a super amenity and there is a clothesline and rack for drying outside. It is quiet and private and super clean. The VIEWS are incredible from the porch. Lush plants on the porch add to the exotic feeling.

Lana and Richard are great hosts. Lana had fresh croissants, bread, fruits, and red & white wine -- what a lovely welcome for us! They are friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. Richard's sons took our daughter out for drinks and dancing with their friends. Be sure to visit their restaurant, Galiano's -- great pizza & pasta.

We also enjoyed fish at the Eftalou restaurant and The Captain's Table. Our favorite food find was Friend's gyros pitas on the main street. These are pita sandwiches with your choice of filling plus tzatziki, lettuce, tomatoes,and french fries for only 2.5 euro.

Molivos is a lovely village, very safe! We walked everywhere (you don't need a car here) and were not worried about our daughter when she was out. Plenty of shopping and food and beach activity, and easy to rent a car or motor bike if you want to explore elsewhere on the island -- we chose not to because we were perfectly contented in our fabulous apartment in Molivas. We did take a taxi to Eftalou and recommend both the restaurant (fish!!) and Elleni's Workship for beautiful hand-made olive wood products.

Be warned -- Molivos is hilly and you will enjoy a great workout for your legs! Wherever you go (except the castle) it is uphill back to the apartment.

We highly recommend this island, this village, and most of all, this apartment. Many thanks to Lana & Richard for providing such a wonderful holiday accommodation!

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodation!

The website is very accurate but does not do the accommodation justice. This was our first visit to Molyvos. We have never stayed anywhere so special. The house sits in the heart of the village with fantastic views from the terrace. The accommodation is only a few minutes walk away from the local food shops, butchers, bakery, post office, pharmacy and a large selection of eating-places. The harbour is a 15-minute walk away and the castle a breathless 10-15 minute climb to the top of the village, but once there the views are stunning. The village beach and swimming pool is a 5-minute walk, with the car park and bus stop being about the same distance. If you hire a car, parking may be a small problem, as you cannot park close to the house. This accommodation is for the fit and mobile as you really do need to be able bodied when considering staying here, as you will need to carry your suitcases up the hill and negotiate stone steps. The short (but steep and good for the legs) climb up the hill is well worth it for the spectacular views from the terrace (the word balcony doesn't do it justice). You have everything you need and Richard and Lana are on hand if you need them, but totally discreet. In short, we had a wonderful holiday and would highly recommend the accommodation.

Thanks for a GREAT Holiday hope to see you soon.
