About Marisa Krallis

I live in Athens with my family, but I enjoy all my summer holidays in MOLIVOS, 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.

Marisa Krallis purchased this villa in 2011

Why Marisa Krallis chose Lesbos

Each year, every summer, I find 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 now the luxury of being in a private villa with spacious areas and astonishing view, with the use of your own private swimming pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our second visit in three years and didn't disappoint. A real home in a wonderful location with the best swimming pool in Greece.

We will return!

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.

A great holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house. A few days after we arrived we truly felt at home, including as a result of the warm welcome and hospitality of the mother of the landlady. Great location (close to the old fishermen harbor), fantastic views over the sea, great orientation (facing West, with the sunset gracing the pool each evening), large infinity swimming pool (with whirlpool corner!), original period furniture throughout the house, two balconies facing West and the sea, one for the bedrooms on 1st floor, and one next to the kitchen for great breakfasts and romantic dinner. Space is abundant, decor homy. A great villa that made our stay there in August 2011 truly memorable. There is also abundant private parking space.

Best Villa in Molyvos

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family of 4 for 12days. This historic villa is located on the hill overlooking the village. It is within short walking distance to all shops and tavernas. We spent most of the time on the balcony offering spectacular view both day and night.

It is one of the few villas in the village with a private and well maintained pool. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the house is well maintained. The villa is easily accessible by car via a private gateway. This is highly recommended as it is without doubt the best villa in town.
