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. The cottage is situated at a distance of some 800m from the village and the sea.
With three thousand years of history under the foundations of the modern village, Molyvos combines layers of an intriguing and still tangible past with the charm of its pristinely maintained and lived present.
Perched on a rocky hill on the North-Western part of the Island of Lesvos Molyvos, or - as the village was known in antiquity and the Middle Ages - Mythemna, has always maintained a close link with both the eastern and western worlds.
With Asia just ten miles away, the inhabitants of the region opened themselves up to foreign influences and lifestyles from early on. Today, they still oblige the visitor by extending a warm welcome in their wonderful corner of the world.
