About Marisa Krallis

Hello, I am Mariza and I live six months in Molivos with my family, the place of my origin, as my family has been living in Molyvos since 17th century.

When my grandfather built a new house, in 1926 in order to host his family, after his marriage, he never had in mind that this house will be passed down through the generations and will be a friendly guesthouse.

Over many years now our house in MOLIVOS village, in LESVOS island is a vacation home for numerous guests from all over the world.

The Story of the House: Villa Molova is part (the half) of a large home built in 1926 by Ioannis Krallis after his wedding to Maritsa Kalligeris, to house their family. The premature death of Ioannis in 1932, following by the birth of two sons, led Maritsa back to her family, in the village of Sykamnia. In the next 50 years the house was occupied by the Germans (WW II), guerillas, the army, refugees and earthquake victims. The entire house was first time restored to its original condition in 1987 and was divided, from Ioannis' sons - Nikolaos and Stratis - between the two families.

Liana (Nikolaos' wife) and their children Mariza and Ioannis, after the sudden loss of Nikolaos in 1988, started hosting guests from all over the world, many returning year after year, turning Villa Molova, into a vacation and relaxing home for numerous guests, for decades now.

Marisa Krallis purchased this villa in 2011

Why Marisa Krallis chose Lesbos

Each time, I enjoy again in Molivos, the scents of geranium, night flower and basil from the courtyards, the seagulls that follow the fishing boats, the sun setting in the Aegean Sea, the crystal blue waters and the fresh sardines next to a glass of ouzo.

This medieval village crowned by a fortress, waits for you to discover it, to take you away from all, to offer you unforgettable holidays, to leave you great memories, as my own and will create to you the need to visit it again.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Molova located above the Molivos’ picturesque port, offers relaxation areas with stunning sea view.

By renting Villa MOLOVA, you rent a holiday home, more space, an entire house, for your family or friends, to chill out or to be more comfortable, to feel ' just like your home'.

You can enjoy the luxury of being in a private villa with spacious areas and astonishing view, with the use of a private swimming pool and also near the social local life.

Villa Molova is also perfect for your winter or spring retreat. Central heating and double-glazed windows offer a magnificent view of the great island's natural beauty. The spacious rooms of the house will be the ideal place for meditation, reading, writing and relaxation.

WOW!! Amazing home and hostess

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 1 week at the end of June/beginning of July this year with another couple with whom we travel frequently. Ms. Krallis family's multi-level home is located on the south west-facing hill above Molyvos harbor. On the upper floor are located 3 wonderful bedrooms, with large (very quiet) ceiling fans and excellent very quiet AC units (outside) as well as a full bathroom and small stove/refrigerator. The 'master' bedroom has a 2 French doors to large patio that looks out on the Aegean that is easily seen from bed. Another bedroom opens to the same patio. Downstairs is a separate bathroom & shower, an amazing & very well-equipped kitchen, living room and patio with dining table that overlooks the private pool, Aegean sea, Molyvos Harbor and if desired mechanical awnings. Across a path that leads down to steps and a very large and deep "infinity pool" is a herb garden and large gas bar-b-q.

The pool is amazing and very refreshing. There's also outdoor and downstairs showers as well as bathroom near the pool. In the shallow area there's an alcove with benches and very strong jets. Just what the doctor ordered to aid tired sore feet!

The home is amazingly furnished with generations of fabulous antiques. Mariza's grandfather built this home in 1926; her family were the first to settle this area of Lesbos many generations back. She's an amazing hostess who provided us upon our arrival with a jar of her homemade peach reserves, a jar of Chestnut Blossom honey (in response to a simple inquiry of mine asking if it were available in the area) as well as arranging for a local massage therapist to visit with us the next morning. Her mom, who speaks no English, but is fluent in French was always available and friendly. We will return! I'm somewhat conflicted abut writing such a stellar review, fearing that someone may rent this home before we have a chance to return for 2 weeks in Sep/Oct 2020.

A stunning property in an idyllic location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing week at the Villa Molova. The property is very comfortable with lots of character and fantastically located a short walk from the centre of Molyvos, the harbour and the beach. There is plenty of great outdoor space with the option of sun or shade. We enjoyed having breakfast and lunch on the terrace and spending time swimming in and relaxing by the pool taking in the breath taking views. The village has a great choice of places to eat, all that we sampled with delicious food and many with fabulous sea views. The owners could not have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome as did all the people we met in Molyvos. Overall, it is a lovely friendly place to stay and we highly recommend it.

Amazing villa, beautiful location, superb views

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to Lesvos and we loved it! This villa is beautiful with the most amazing views. The pool is wonderful and we spent a lot of time relaxing beside it and just looking out to sea. The villa is immaculate and was cleaned mid week as well with fresh linen etc. It is very homely and is full of beautiful antiques and art. It was a real privilege to stay here. We would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone going to Lesvos - it's quiet and relaxing and yet you can be at a restaurant or shops within minutes. The house is cool inside and we did not need the A/C on very much either. This villa is five stars for location, views, comfort and EVERYTHING! The best location and villa in Lesvos!

We are a young family of five with extensive travel experience. We have traveled to Lesvos many times and also have extensive travel throughout Europe. This villa provided one of the best experiences we have had on a family holiday. The host was fabulous and we were welcomed like a family member. The hospitality could not be exceeded. The property itself, is spectacular with fabulous views. Thoroughly recommend if you want to experience the best that Greece has to offer. We love the property and we love the family owners and we will definitely be back. Thank you for everything.

Great house, great owners, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

To make a long story short: it is challenging to find something better in this category. The house is old and charming but very well maintained and comfortable. There are a lot of stairs too, but that's the price for getting such a wonderful view. The infinity pool is just amazing. The house is very quiet but is perfectly located. You can go to restaurants in a few minutes. That's really a great place for families, couples or friends. The owners are very professional and very kind too.

This was an outstanding rental and we will return next year. The property has everything you could wish for in a vacation rental: exceptional views, large pool, spacious, tastefully decorated accomodations and a perfect location right in the center of the village. The owners were extremely helpful as well. We absolutely loved this property and highly recommend it.
