In the North - Lafionas - "Te Warskip"
The small mountain village Lafionas is located in the North of the island of Lesvos, overlooking the bay of Petra. The charming house “Te Warskip” is based in the heart of the tiny village, a lovely traditional kafeinion with a spectacular view just around the corner. The house has been lovingly, with many private belongings and great attention to detail renovated over recent years.
On the ground level is the bedroom with a large double bed, the small bathroom with a shower and a single bed for maximum 4 persons. A traditional wood burner can be used to heat the house during the cool season.
An open stone-stairs leads you to the upper level with a well-equipped open kitchen (with washing machine), a dining area and a sofa-bed for one person. The first floor has an air-conditioning, which can be used for cooling or heating. The cozy balcony provides space for 4 persons and has a BBQ.
Water and gas is included, electricity and fire wood is charged extra by reading the meter upon arrival and after check-out.
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. “Te Warskip” is a good location for active people, nature lovers and families at any time of the year. Some beautiful hikes start nearby the house. In order to best explore the region we recommend that you hire a rental car.

The mountain village of Lafionas is located on the slope of the mountain Roudi, about 4km away from the coastal village of Petra. Lafionas is surrounded by old olive groves and extended pine forests. In the very traditional village you will find a few kafeneions and little shops. In the morning fresh fish and vegetables are delivered by mobile traders. Mostly elderly Greek people sit on the plateia or on one of the terraces with a stunning view over the bay of Petra, enjoying a coffee or ouzo. Strangers are welcome, but the locals may look curiously at you. Sometimes this is the beginning of a friendly chat.
Lafionas is a good starting point for hikes in the area. The mountain Roudi can be mounted or you may take the lovely hike out of the village and visit the old charge of Saint Alexandros (with his sarcophagus in front of the charge door). In the neighbourhood you can find the ruins of the settlement of Klapados, the setting of one of the last victorious battles between the Greeks forces and the Turkish army in December 1912. From here starts an ecological hike through the pine forest with stunning views to Anaxos, Petra, Molivos and Eftalou.
