The mountain village Lafionas is located in the North of the island of Lesvos, overlooking the bay of Petra. This traditional stone house has been lovingly and authentically renovated over recent years. On the ground level is an open plan kitchen with dining and living areas. There is also a small utility area with washing machine and the bathroom with shower on the ground floor.
There are two bedrooms on the upper level. The main bedroom has a double bed and a private roof terrace with fantastic views over Petra and further East to Molivos and Turkey. The other bedroom has two single beds.
In front of the house is a small garden/courtyard where you can always find a shady spot, perhaps relaxing in the hammock or under the cozy pergola.
In Lafionas you will find a few tavernas with a spectacular view to the sea plus some small shops/mini markets. It takes you 10min by car to get to the coastal village of Petra and its lovely beaches. “Am Alex” is a good location for active people, nature lovers and families. Some beautiful hikes start right behind the house. In order to best explore the region we recommend that you hire a rental car.

|Location description||Lafionas is a tiny mountain village in the North of Lesvos. In Lafionas you will find a few tavernas with a spectacular view to the sea plus some small shops/mini markets. It takes you 10min by car to get to the coastal village of Petra and its lovely beaches.|
Petra is about 6.5 kilometres west of Molivos on the north coast of Lesvos, in a flat area between the fertile fields and olive groves and a wide bay with a fine sandy beach. The town's landmark is the striking church rock, which also gave the village its name (Greek petra = Stone). Climbing up the old steps to the church is highly recommended: not only the church itself and its surroundings are worth seeing, but you also have fantastic views over the village, the sea and the coastline.
In the narrow streets below the church, life vibrates in the summer season. The Plateia, which opens to the sea, invites visitors to enjoy the sunset, while drinking ouzo, wine or coffee or even slurping a sundowner. Three small offshore islands offer a perfect setting for your sunset photograph or just for your memories.
The mountainous region inland of Petra is a paradise for hikers and mountain bikers. Countless trails and paths open up the region, waiting for you to discover them.
Molivos is a picturesque town in the north of the island of Lesvos. Narrow, cobbled streets – some shaded by wisteria with its enchanting smell - lead up to an imposing castle on top of the hill. The castle you see dates back to the Byzantine period (although an ancient castle on the same site was besieged by Achilles) and its impressive presence seem to dominate the town below.
Molivos has a good tourist infrastructure; many small local shops invite you in as you stroll through the shady streets. Bars, tavernas and Cafes offer their specialties. At some of them you can sit outside on a balcony, high above sea level and overlooking the harbour and the beautiful bay.
In the fishing harbour you can see colourful working fishing boats bobbing in the clear water.
