This beautifully renovated apartment in the historic old town is minutes away from the Mytilene Castle, the city’s renown “ouzeries,” and the shops and restaurants of picturesque Ermou Street. It’s the perfect spot for enjoying Mytilene’s culture.
This large one-bedroom apartment (48 m) in a gracious two-story house has just been completely renovated and has all the features you require for a comfortable stay. It is situated on a central road of Mytilene, the rooms are spacious and light-filled and overlook a beautiful garden where you can nap in the hammock in the shadow of Mytilene’s medieval castle, one of the largest in Greece. It has a full kitchen, a large bathroom, a bedroom with a double real bed and a living room with French doors that open onto the garden and a sofa bed that can accommodate additional guests.
You can enjoy your breakfast or cocktails while sitting in the garden looking at the colourful houses of the old city and the blue sea with the old port.
It’s the perfect spot for enjoying Mytilene’s cultural life as well as exploring the backcountry of Lesvos with its hot springs, ancient ruins, wildlife, beaches, and traditional villages.

Hello! I'm a professional photographer and travel writer and it is my pleasure to offer my apartment to visitors to Athens.

Schedule permitting, I can offer you tours of Athens customized to your interests as well as photography workshops for those who want to be inspired by the Mediterranean light.
