The perfect beach-front property - beautiful, secluded and with stunning views - that you would have to travel back in time for to find in France, Mallorca or most other Mediterranean locations. George the landlord could not be more accommodating and generous, as well as friendly and interesting.
We all five (parents with three teenagers) had a fantastic week, being incredibly lazy - apart from having fun kayaking and heading out daily to take up George's restaurant recommendations.
The property is very clean, well equipped and maintainted. And if anything the amazing photos don't do it justice...!!
Great secluded place; we all enjoyed it (with kids 7 yrs and baby of 6 months); nice bay for swimming (mostly no wawes, warm water and no people); definitely will recommend it to a friend. Only the food arround was not as good as expected for Greece. the owner provided cleaning every third day and home made olive oil and honey :-)
The villa is in the most tranquil of settings, the best equipped ever experienced, the host George, the most generous. A perfect week. Thank you George. bravo to you. Susan Bowater
Home from home, traditional, complete relaxation, stayed for 2 weeks in aug 2012. This is the best I have found in 10 years visiting lesvos.
Stayed for 2 weeks in August 2012 with my husband and 6 year old son. We have family living nearby. Instead of it feeling like a holiday, it was like home, with you very own beach. It is a perfect mix of tradition and new. There was nothing we needed, it has it all. It just a few minutes by car to Mytiline yet when at the villa you wouldn't think it. I have been visiting lesvos now for 10 years as I was married there, it this is the best I have found and so shall defiantly be returning. Only one thing that I would love to see is a pool..
We stayed for 9 days in June 2012, 2 couples, 1 small child.
The house is comfortable, calm, well maintained.
The view of the sea right in front with no road to cross is beautiful and rare (and makes it easy to go for a swim whenever you feel like it). The house is surrounded by olive trees and beautiful twisted old pine trees. There are also apricot and pear trees which were all ripening when we arrived. The owner, George, was friendly, provided a generous package of food to get started and not just any old food : fresh eggs from his chickens, his own honey, olive oil from his trees, home baked cake and some basic stuff like butter, coffee, bread... and took the time to describe the area.
There's air-conditioning which we also didn't turn on, preferring the breeze with the windows open. Luckily the mosquito netting on the window kept most flies and mosquitos out. Outside we weren't bothered by many but in the hot months there are probably quite a few.
There's a swing, a kayak (we didn't use it),a pond with gold fish (a little sad), a volleyball net, 3 hammocks, our little girl had fun playing with the pine cones... There are 3 friendly dogs belonging to George's brother. They don't come over but we said we liked them so he let them wander over. They had no names so we named two of them : Moustache and Chaussettes.
You need transportation of some sort because there are no shops nearby, we rented a car (250 euros for 9 days). There is a tavern reachable on foot and all along the bay there are other taverns; the one's we tried were excellent.
For food we went to Mytilini where we bought fresher vegetables (courgette flowers!) and fish than you will see anywhere, especially if you go in the morning. There are probably some great restaurants there too, we went to one on the port which was too touristy for us.
Like most beaches on the island it is pebbly so if you have tender feet some plastic sandals are needed, and you need to watch out for sea urchins in some parts. We went barefoot no problem. And because its a bay it's very calm.
So I think I've been pretty clear, we had a very nice time.
Pyrgi villa is by car 5 minutes far from the capital of the island ,Mytilini.Mytilini has its old and new town.Around its port you can find everything you need from food,tavernas.cafes,small groceries with local products,supermakets etc.There are two archaelogical museums the new and the old ,and the famous Teriade museum of modern art.Very interesting to visit is the castle and the Roman theater.
The nearest beaches from our residence,twenty minutes by car, situated out of the gulf, are Haramida beach and Agios Ermogenis beach. The closest taverna is 800meters from the vila situated in a tiny harbour.You can also find a lot of tavernas around the area with excellent local food at reasonable prices.
The unique hot spring of the gulf of Gera,10 minutes distance by car from our resort, dates back to the beginning of the last century. Renovations have respected the original architecture of the baths. The separate baths for men and women are the largest on the island. The big marble swimming pools look thousand years old.
Lesvos is blessed with Award-winning beaches, traditional villages, more varieties of birds and wildflowers than anywhere in Europe. Pine forests, medieval castles, scenic harbors with cafes and inexpensive seafood restaurants abundant fish, museums including two of the finest art museums in Greece, and some of warmest, friendliest people in all Greece.
Lesvos (or Lesbos) has been a favorite location for artists, writers, philosophers, romantics. It is the native land of Sappho, Alcaeus, Theofrastos student of Aristoteles, Ermarhos student of Epicurus, down to Teriade the famous modern art critic and publisher who donated a Modern art museum to Lesbos, the Nobel prize laureate Oddyseas Elytis, and many other famous Greek writers.
Furthermore, the natural beauties of the island, thankfully, are still unharmed from human intervention and provide a prevailing atmosphere which sustains that rich intellectual and cultural heritage .
The beaches of Lesbos and its unrivaled sunsets complement the island's most important natural resource, it's olive grooves which cover 40% of the island. Side by side with these features,are the works of man down the centuries: Aeolian column capitals, houses of incomparable architectural beauty and traditional industrial buildings find it easy to co-exist with works of art of invaluable value.
If you can come to Lesvos in the spring you will amply be awarded with one of the most incredible displays of wildflowers and wildbirds you have ever seen. Lesvos is a main stop in the migration routes for European birds coming from Africa and has an amazing variety of local birds.
