Aegle Maisonette - Heliades
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Aegle gazes at Molyvos' Ottoman castle and the sea that tears European Lesvos from the shores of Asia Minor but ten miles away. But a few meters from the remains of Roman baths up the road and just steps from the town harbour it offers its verandas for long hours of relaxation and easy sociality with friends and family.
A spacious two-level two-bedroom town-home on the North Eastern corner of the Heliades complex, Aegle accommodates four guests in the two upstairs bedrooms and up to two of their friends or family in the living-room's comfortable fold-out couch. Amenities allow you to live a social life of cooking and feasting at home – both indoors and outdoors on the large North-facing veranda.
The house is located a two minute walk from the harbour and its restaurants and about ten minutes from Molyvos' main beach. Ten leisurely minutes on Molyvos' cobble streets will take you to the village bakery and the main market as well as pharmacies and the local medical centre. Around twenty minutes (slightly more at a leisurely pace) will bring you to the village's medieval castle. All in all Molyvos Manor is ideally located for the person seeking relaxation in proximity to Molyvos' active social life.

The Aegean Islands region
Molyvos is a picturesque village of roughly 1000 permanent residents that has been continuously inhabited since antiquity. It is located in the north-western corner of Lesvos, approximately 64 km from the harbour of Mytilene and 68 km from the airport.
Molyvos offers a wide variety of attractions that cater to the interests of every age. For children Molyvos becomes an explorer's paradise. There is a maze of cobblestone streets set into the hillsides and a harbour to navigate. The medieval castle awaits exploration, while the easily accessible beaches offer opportunities for all day play.
Excursions to nearby Petra, home to a hilltop cathedral church and extensive shopping opportunities may easily be taken on foot, bike, scooter or car. Many visitors rent cars and explore neighboring villages such as Skala Sikaminias, where delicious lobster pasta can be had if you call ahead!
Nearby hillsides are home to herds of sheep and goats that graze among the olive groves and the greenery of Lesbos' gently rolling hills. Lesbos benefits from the highest average sunshine in all of the country and is an ideal destination for the traveller seeking relaxation, warmth, and history in every season!
Visits to Molyvos in April and May expose the traveller to luscious Green landscapes and the opportunity to connect with bird-watchers and other nature enthusiasts. Bi-weekly day trips to Turkey may be organized from Molyvos with the option of a guided tour or a simple boat passage across the ten mile wide channel that separates Europe from Asia. The coastal city of Ayvalik, ancient Assos and Pergamon, as well as Smyrna a few hours drive from Ayvalik are all options for the curious visitor.
