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!
This gorgeous boutique hotel is situated right on the seafront at Skala Eressos. It is a great example of a superior traditional, family-run, simple hotel in Greece. There are just ten bright, clean bedrooms, 7 of which have amazing sea views out over the bay and towards a small rocky island. The other three rooms have village views.
There are just two storeys and the ground floor has a breakfast room and a lovely terrace – a perfect peaceful spot to have a morning coffee and watch the world go by! The beach is right outside the front door making this hotel ideal for those of you that love to be by the sea – you can hear the waves and breathe in the clean, salty air as soon as you open your shutters!
The double and twin rooms are simply furnished, and each has a balcony with chairs and a table. Each room has an ensuite shower-room and air-conditioning. There’s free wifi, a TV, a hairdryer, and a fridge ( to keep those drinks cool!). If you hire a car, there’s also free parking available.
The owners are friendly and kind – nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is an optional extra – please advise when booking if you’d like to take advantage of this.
This small, traditional hotel on the seafront is an ideal location for exploring the delights of this picturesque village and there’s plenty of tavernas and a bakery within walking distance! You can also watch the amazing Lesvos sunsets from here.
If you want to explore further afield, being in Skala Eressos means you are ideally-placed to explore the nearby amazing beaches, villages, museums and historical sites of Lesvos.
