Make a holiday rental home or self catering apartment in Lesbos (Lesvos), Greece your home away from home

The island of Lesbos (Lesvos) is a beautifully unspoilt Aegean Island of Greece, covered with forested mountains and lined with stunning cove beaches along the rocky, wild coastline. This is an island where you can genuinely get away from it all and enjoy the peace, have a sporting adventure or simply relax on the beach with the sun on your face. The warm hospitality and ancient historical monuments which adorn the island have helped keep flights to Lesbos full and self catering Lesbos holiday homes in high demand too. Lesbos is the third largest of the Greek islands, but has yet to be swamped with mass tourism, giving it a genuine, and very attractive culture, with village life remaining very much as it has been for centuries.

There are a number of tavernas and minimarkets within easy walking distance. The showers are very powerful and most refreshing after a hot day out and about. The beds are comfortable and clean, and made every day except Sunday along with general titying and cleaning. The kitchen is basic but with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Ample storage in built in wardrobes with combination safe in both. Not that we felt we needed it. The pool is large with a paddling area for younger visitors and is spotless too. The poolside has quality wooden and canvas sun loungers and neither pool nor loungers are ever fully occupied. In fact completely empty most of the time.

The description is modest compared to the lovely experience I had. There was an abundance of clean towels, sheets, etc. and I received replacement clean towels over my stay here. The location of this home could not have been more perfect, just a few steps from the small port in Molyvos and its charming restaurants and gift shops. The mornings and afternoons were spent either in our private pool enjoying the cool sea breeze or sipping a glass of wine overlooking the Aegean. If you like small inspiring details in your vacation home, this is the place for you...From the beautiful ceiling lights, to the drawings and paintings on the walls, it's no wonder I wanted to stay longer. I know how this is the perfect summer home, but, with its corner fireplace and cozy furnishings, I pictured visiting in the winter to watch the rain fall on the shingled rooftops and sea below, while a fire burns in the fireplace. Definitely a place to revisit again and again. This is a home where memories are made.

They provided a welcoming bottle of local wine, regular meat, cheese, home made pastries and a large farewell bottle of their own olive oil. Tsonia is a quiet fishing village with friendly restaurants yards away. This is a traditional beach chalet with shower, toilet, wash basin, kithenette, fridge/ freezer, aircon & tv. It can sleep 4, but is more comfortable with 2 or 3. The large patio with table, seating & sun canopy is only yards from the sea. There is also a small rear patio. A double glazed door & window with fly screen enable you to watch fishermen on the Agean in comfort from your bed!! The chalet is cleaned twice a week, when fresh linen & towels are provided. In the landlady's garden you can watch wild tortoises feed on her lovely plums. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS LOW PRICED CHALET FOR A 'GET AWAY FROM IT ALL' HOLIDAY on beautiful Lesvos.
