Retreat location

Lesbos has a lot to offer. Picturesque villages and towns like Molyvos, the pearl of the island with a castle on top. You may wander through the small streets all the way down to the harbor. There are lots of shops, taverns, and restaurants. The beach is small with lots of stones. Most people go to Petra because it is close by.

Lesvos / Lesbos is also known for the unique petrified forest covering the Sigri- Eressos-Antissa area. It is a forest ecosystem that has been fossilized 15-20 million years ago due to the intense volcanic area. It is one of the rarest natural monuments in the world. In ten minutes, you may walk to the center of the authentic village, Skala Kalloni.

Lesbos is an ideal place for cycling and scooter driving, particularly in the area of Skala Kalloni. Cycling can be a game and fun for the whole family, as the trails are smooth and flat. The magic of the landscape will reward you. The hotel can provide you with all the information about routes you can take depending on the degree of difficulty you desire.
