PLEASE NOTE: Our accommodation
has been fully renovated this year and we are going to have new photos of
The main question is: what kind of holiday are you looking for in
A crowded tourist place with a lot of modern entertainment, noise 24 hours a day, souvenir shops, fancy bars, ear-splitting discothθques and expensive restaurants?
Or a small sea-side village in a quiet and rural environment, with a traditional and authentic atmosphere, surrounded by beautiful nature?
If you prefer the latter one, than you should consider to come and stay in Melinda at the south
coast of the Aegean island Lesvos. There you will find your paradise on earth.... The tiny village is situated right at the shore of the Mediterranean, with its many shades of blue and green delightful to the eye, and its calming never ending rustling. No irritating noise of cars and motorbikes will disturb your day of rest, nor your sleep at night, simply because of the fact that there is no through traffic in the village. Mass-tourism is an unknown word here, so the pebble beach will be nearly only yours, when you like to relax at the shore and take a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear sea. Behind the village a magnificent nature with 'breathtaking' mountains and stunning footpaths along extensive olive groves and sweet-scented pine-tree forests starts right-away: a perfect opportunity for those who like an active and exploring holiday.
The region has many traditional villages (Paleochori, Megalochori, Kournela etc.) which are worth visiting and even hiking to using the numerous paths.
Do we need to tell you more? Your choice of destination will be easy....
And of course you would like a nice place to stay
