There's a reason we've been coming here for 20 years
Sitting in the sparkling turquoise Aegean Sea, Lesvos is a warm and sunny emerald gem of Greece. It is a whole continent in miniature: spectacular beaches, high mountains and wild forests on Greece's third largest island.
Due to the island's size and variety, there's something for everyone: beach holidays, activity holidays, gastronomic tours, nature attractions and spectacular geography.
Here at Real Lesvos we aim to gradually make the wonder and attractions of Lesvos more easily available to the UK traveller. In the map below you'll find an ever-increasing list of our favourite things to do and see on Lesvos!
These three modern, detached cottages are just 100 metres from the beautiful beach at Petra. The spacious bungalows are set within beautiful gardens and feel very secluded and private even though they are minutes away from the sea and the charming village of Petra with its beachfront bars and family-run tavernas.
Each cottage has a furnished terrace with sea, garden and sunset views. The bright modern interiors are all well-equipped, with a fitted kitchen with appliances, air conditioning, free WiFi, fridge freezers and TVs. The cottages have spacious studio living and dining areas, with a double bed.
These cottages are set in an idyllic location and make a perfect base for a holiday on Lesvos. The owners are very kind and helpful and can recommend lots of local things to see and do! From Gaea Garden cottages you can walk to the beach and into the bustling village of Petra. Remember to visit the famous Church on the Rock, from which the village takes its name – Petra meaning Rock in Greek. It is also easy to get to the beach resort of Anaxos and the pretty village of Molyvos with its Byzantine castle, is nearby (maybe travel there aboard the local village land train!).
