    We had a wonderful stay at Heliotopos ! The staff is really nice and the place is quiet : the ideal combo for a memorable stay at Skala Eressos. The bikes were really handy, perfect to go everywhere around the city. We will come back for sure !

    We loved the secluded setting and beautiful gardens. We had a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge on our arrival. We also really liked the free bikes we could use to cycle into the town - only 5 minutes away - no nee for a car. Our host was...

This beautiful family owned and run property called Heliotopos (meaning "Place of the sunflowers") was lovingly created by my parents. They were both born on this island of Lesvos. It was built in approx 1985 and all the trees, flowers and fruit trees were planted with a vision to create a cool haven in the summer heat. It is one of few properties that is set in a lovely valley that gets the afternoon winds sweeping through in summer, cooling it down. You will find hedgehogs, wild foxes and many birds in the surrounding gardens.
I live between Mytilene and Skala Eressos and love sharing stories with visitors from around the world. I used to own Eressos Travel Agency for 28 years and completely understand international travel and what makes your stay special! Nature and the earth is what noursihes my souls and it is a pleasure to share this property with you!
