Lesbos, Northeast Aegean Islands
This is a real treat! This cottage is a bargain with prices staying the same for 3 years. The location is stunning - with views over olive groves and within a stone's throw of the picturesque Gulf of Kalloni. Seashell Cottage is well equipped and comfortable accommodation for 4 people plus one child on an extra bed. It has recently had a new roof and the outside areas extended. Although the Island of Lesvos has been in the news because of the migrant crisis this is not now the case. This rural area of the island remained untouched and the rest of the island has recovered.
Seashell Cottage is located in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of Greece, where you can go the whole holiday only hearing Greek spoken and the beaches are never crowded even in the height of summer. It is perfect for walking, birdwatching or jus...

The cottage was easy enough to find and is on a dirt track. It is certainly very quiet there - but unless you enjoy cycling (which we do) then you would have to walk or use the car to get to the nearest Taverna which is about a mile away. Although only 150 yards from the sea there is no...

Management response:

Thank you so much for staying in Seashell Cottage and we are glad you liked this unspoilt corner of Greece. We love the peace and tranquility, which are second to none, and the proximity to the sea - an evening dip watching the sunset is a particular favourite! The cottage is primarily for us to use as a family and...

The accommodation is good but basic. The hot water is excellent- no problems. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering and all the electrics worked well. For four people it would be very cramped with only one room for cooking, eating and sitting in. The furniture is basic with no comfy chairs just plastic or fold up wooden. The...

I stayed at Seashell Cottage with my husband and two sons - 16 and 12 in the summer of 2012. We had an amazing time and we all look forward to going again. The whitewashed cottage with it's blue shutters is nestled quietly amongst olive groves with a tantalising glimpse of the Kalloni Gulf on the approach road. The owners...

About the neighbourhood
Seashell Cottage is located in it's own grounds 150 metres from the sea in an idyllic setting amongst olive groves, on the peaceful Gulf of Kalloni. The cottage is walking distance from the sandy blue-flagged beach of Nyfida, backed by shady tamarisk trees. This area of Lesvos is very unspoiled and untouched by mass tourism that spoils many other Greek islands. Nyfida has tavernas (with free wi-fi) next to the sea, selling excellent local dishes, particularly seafood caught in the Gulf. Equidistant is nearby is Skala Polichnitos, where you can see the fish landed and then eat it on the quay. The town of Polichnitos is 3 kilometres away which has year round facilities including a hospital, pharmacies, banks, bakery, fruit and grocery shops, tackle shops and numerous tavernas.

Seashell Cottage is easy to get to from many of the main cities in Europe with direct flights from London Gatwick (through Thomas Cook) Frankfurt, Oslo, Amsterdam, Vienna and Munich. It is also well connected with flights from Athens daily and Thessaloniki (both cities are flown to by Easyjet from the UK) - Aegean flies to Heathrow and then there is a short wait in Athens for the Mytellini flight.

Lesvos is a great destination for island hopping as it is connected by Sky Express to Samos, Kos, Rhodes and Limnos (Sunvil fly to Limnos from London Gatwick). Island hopping by ferry is also easy and there are slow and fast ferries daily from Athens in the Summer and Thessaloniki as well as Chios and Limnos.

Once at Mytellini it is about 1 hour's drive to Seashell Cottage. The roads a...
