Situated on a small mountain along the coast, topped by a majestic castle overlooking the crystal clear Aegean Sea, Molyvos holidays take pride in showcasing a unique beauty which is unrivalled throughout the island. Greece’s lesser-known island, Lesbos, allows you to view the everyday life of what is a very raw take on working Greece. A bustling harbour is the main attraction and this means that mornings around the area are crowded by small cargo ships dropping off the daily supplement of mackerel, sardines and other locally-found fish for use in Mytilini’s markets or Molyvos’s quaint cafes and restaurants.
From Coral to Cobbled Streets
You’ll see that there’s plenty to do and explore on holidays to Molyvos as you walk through the cobbled hills and gaze upon unique architecture intertwined with quirky shops, restaurants and cafes. Succumb to the laid-back Greek lifestyle in one of the many yoga classes, feel the music at one of the many festivals around the island, the most notable being the feast of Panagia in Petra and Agiaso, or find solace among the rocky ravines and whimsical waterfalls that pave the way along mapped out hiking paths – whatever you find yourself doing, you’re sure to find something unique during Molyvos holidays. If you’re looking to buff up on the history front, then a tour of Molivos Castle will give an insight into medieval Lesbos, while the Village Train will take you around the nooks and crannies that you might have missed on your first tour of the resort, but the best way to delve into the mythology of Molyvos is to talk to the locals, many of whom love to wax lyrical about the folklore surrounding their beloved home.
