- How to get here

Coming by car from Mytilene to Mithymna (Molyvos) you must follow the signs to Kalloni and then Mithymna.

Visit the Byzantine fortress or the Ottoman Baths, walk through enclosed courtyards with jasmine and bougainvillea, or read one of the 13000 books at the Historical Municipal Library of Molyvos. You can also go for a trip at Vafios or Sykamia.

Choose from a luxury hotel to a private villa and from low budget rooms to mansions, traditional houses, studios, apartments and why not… a beautiful camping site! A room with a view, a room by the beach, a peaceful room, a room under the stars…

The local culinary culture is centered on the attention to detail that doesn’t necessarily translate into expensive meals and luxurious restaurants or require novel and complex recipes. Rather, it is based on an attitude that views everything as potentially a work of art.
