Villa Notia was impeccably and lovingly restored to the highest standards in 2007 using natural materials of stone and wood, and with full attention to the architectural style of an old Greek residence. Although traditional in style, with handcrafted furniture and fittings designed by the owners, it conforms to the demands of a modern residence with all necessary conforts including central heating, and DSL fast internet connection. Villa Notia is situated in the middle of the preserved traditional area of Eresos close to the Byzantine church of the Virgin Mary (circa.1100AD).The ambience of the area is peaceful and tranquil, but is just a 5 minute walk from the central square with its market, tavernas and traditional cafe under the old plane trees. It is 3 miles from the beautiful beach and centre of Skala Eresou.

About Theo and Aspasia
We first visited eressos as university students, in the beginning of the 80’s and since then “never” left it. Eressos has become for us a gate for a trip through time, senses and creativity.This full of history, love and passion place,stole our hearts for good ,it has always been an inspiration and though we were not born there ,eventually it became our home. Our big love is to find old beautiful spaces that used to be alive, try to restore and give them life again. So 16 years ago we bought and restored our first house where our daughter ,17 years old now, walked her first steps and spoke. We bought villa Notia 3 years ago and with a lot of work and love restored it to the highest standards, with respect for its fortress architectural style,creating an essentially relaxing place!
Theo and Aspasia purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Theo and Aspasia chose Eresos
Eressos village is a wonderful place to live in the summer as well as in the winter, in a peaceful and tranquil ambience , but not empty, yet it’s lively throughout the year.Walking through stone paved lanes surrounded by stone houses with red ceramic roofs and colorful flowerful courtyards.

It was lovely. We enjoyed walking to the town square to eat. Loved the food! Everyone was so nice in the town. Every day, we went to the beach. The afternoon/evening breezes were welcome as it was very hot. The outdoor patio was wonderful.
Thank you , we hope to see you again!
Eresos' most beautiful house
Villa Notia is a rare find in the village of Eresos. Although a beautiful village most houses are tiny and cramped. Villa Notia is unique. It is spacious, airy and light. The rooms are large and the bathrooms fantastic. It is unlikely you will find a better house in this region. Many of the renovated houses have lost their charm but this house keeps its Greek style. It is a perfect house for a family with kids, or a house to share with friends. IT has an outside courtyard for meals and kids can ride all over the village and down to the beach.
The sandy beach of Skala Eresou is 3.5 km from villa Notia, 30 minutes walking or 10 minutes driving, through Eresos valley. The (3 km long) beach is one of the most beautiful in Lesvos island and Greece generally, water sports/windsurfing are all available. Picturesque cafe, restaurants and elegant bars exist at the busy side of the beach, seabirds at the tranquil side after the river.
The nearest airport is in Mytilene, about 90 Km from Eresos, 1.50 hour drive to Eresos. All car hire firms are represented at the airport. Lesvos island is big and if someone wants to see it, car hire is recommended for several days, however Eresos is fantastic for walking or riding on a bike.
