Meals are vegetarian/ vegan based with a strong Greek/Middle Eastern influence.


This island, despite being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, does not have a tourist presence comparable to other Greek islands such as Santorini, Mykonos or Rhodes. Lesvos is nonetheless a generous and independent island, with its own well-defined profile in the Greek economy and full of interesting things to discover and, of course, to enjoy. It is the home of Sappho (a famous poetess of the Classical period), the best Hellenic olive oil, the undisputed capital of ouzo, retsina (local aromatised wine), boasts a curious and unique petrified forest and its capital, Mytilene, is rich in historical vestiges and has a great student life that enlivens it even during the long winter months.
The island’s nature is lush and generous: millions of olive trees alternate with dense forests, but also leave room for desolate valleys and barren mountains. And then there is the endless coastline, for long stretches unknown to mass tourism, solitary but welcoming, familiar only to the almost 300 species of migratory birds that choose to stop here every year. Lesvos is an island where Greek daily life does not let itself be dazzled by the easy money and somewhat kitsch of boorish and naive tourism. It lives its routine with optimism and appreciates the fact that those who come here have not chosen their destination at random.


Lesvos is located in the archipelago of the north-eastern Aegean islands and is the largest of the group in size. Due to its importance, it has very easy connections with Athens, where there are several internal flights every day throughout the year. If you want to save money, there are good connections by ship every day of the year. Ships also stop at Chios and often go as far north as Thessaloniki. From some European countries you can fly directly to Lesvos, which has a small but modern international airport. If you cannot find a direct flight to Mytilene, fly to Athens and from there take another flight to the island.


Like the traditional villages, Lesvos’ beaches are numerous, indeed, practically endless. From kilometres of sand and pebble beaches to quiet coves, you are spoilt for choice. The most famous are basically four, all far apart in terms of surface area. To the south, around the village of Plomari, is Agios Isidoros, to the north, just below Molyvos, Petra. The most famous beach in the western part of Lesvos is Skala Eressous, while along the same coast, but on the opposite side, is the beach of Vatera. All are very extensive and all have ample space to relax without crowds even in the middle of August.

In Lesvos, needless to say, there is much to see and do. To see everything, one must stay on the island for a long time, at least ten days or return several times, and we are sure that the island will tempt anyone with this desire. Some of the best attractions are the hot spring of Polichnitos, the petrified forest. Other things to see on Lesvos are the monasteries of Limonos and Taxiarchis, the Roman aqueduct and the castle of Mytilini.
