Molyvos is a Greek village in Lesvos island in the Aegean Sea .. The island is unexploited and full of voluptuous richness of green on the eastern part and barren and volcanic rocks on the western part. It has a great history which includes many great personalities such as Sappho, Arion, Pitakos, Theofilos etc.. The island will inspire you with its supreme nature and beauty, special sea shores, fisherman villages and certainly cultural heritage..
Molyvos on the other hand is a very unique and authentic village with narrow, stone-paved alleys will travel you back in time to another era and every corner you see will surprise you..
Unexpected glimpses of the sea while walking through the alleys, shops clinging onto the edge of the rocks with their balconies overlooking the Aegean Sea, the medieval castle at the top of the village, two-storey mansions, stone made fountains and pine trees in the gardens.
Nature has blessed this place in a unique way but what really makes Molyvos so different is its inhabitants. They are simple people, enthusiasts with a liveliness and spirit rarely found at our times. They will treat you as their fellow villagers and share with you their true love for Molyvos..
