Description from owner

Description

Situated in the heart of the village of Molyvos (also known as Mythimna) is Captain's View, a beautifully restored stone house retaining Molyvos tradition and with an eye for both Greek style and luxurious detail.

Captain's View is a couple of minutes from the 'agora' (market), the bakery and a well stocked grocery. Imagine newly baked bread, croissants or baguettes, fresh fruit, yoghurt and local honey for breakfast on the balcony. The views from the balcony, sitting room and main bedroom make words like 'spectacular', 'awesome', 'magnificent' and 'magic' seem totally inadequate. It's one's private access to a panorama of natural beauty, a wide bay, the harbour with its yachts, small craft and colourful fishing vessels, distant islands and mountains, and just below, the tiles of the old village roofs.

This is a holiday for people who want to imerse themselves in a Greek village but still stay in a quiet

This is a holiday for people who want to imerse themselves in a Greek village but still stay in a quiet area. For self catering (breakfast on the veranda) getting up when one wants. Watching the sunrise (if you are awake) and the sunset from the balcony.

Further details indoors

Captain's View is a relaxing house with plenty of space. It is ideal for a romantic getaway or for a family or two couples sharing. It has two double bedrooms downstairs, each with an en-suite bathroom - one has a big spa bath, the other a shower. Built-in cupboards provide plenty of drawers and hanging space. Above the kitchen and dining area is an attic den for siestas, reading and TV watching. The sitting area in this den can also convert to provide still more sleeping accommodation.

The spacious and well-equipped kitchen has a full sized cooker, a microwave oven, a spacious fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. There's plenty of crockery, cutlery and all the kitchen utensils required for self-catering. A small utility room houses an automatic washing machine. In the living area adjacent to the kitchen there's an eight place traditional wooden dining table.

Further details outdoors

There is parking only five minutes walk away from the house.

Location description from owner

Northeast Aegean Islands region

There are many different natural environments on the island: scores of virtually untouched coastal fishing villages and beaches which range from golden, black or red sand to pebbles of blazing white quartz; lush mountain river valleys around Aghiasos which is surrounded by chestnut groves; brilliant beaches at Drota, Sigri, Melinda (no relation!) and Eressos (birth place of the sixth century BCE poet Sappho). The salt flats near Kalloni are home to flocks of pink flamingos and many other aquatic birds and thousands of bird-watchers from all over the world visit the island. There is a treeless ‘moonscape’ around Sigri where an entire forest was ‘petrified’ by volcanic activity a million years ago, an awesome spectacle.

Most amazing are the twelve million olive trees many of which once provided the island with its wealth. Many towns and villages boast nineteenth century ‘oil mansions’ and grand oil presses – a few are still in use with others converted into hotels and cultural centres.

Molyvos

Molyvos has everything you need: plenty of shops for groceries and souvenirs, cafes and restaurants, a few funky late night bars, banks, currency exchanges, newsagents, internet cafés and pharmacies. There is a two kilometre long pebble (and sand) beach, its own farms and olive groves, and is close to mountain villages and other attractive sea side and mountain beauty spots.

There are regular buses to nearby coastal villages like Avlaki , Eftalou (a hot springs centre) and Petra with its church high on a rock outcrop and long sandy beach.
