Molyvos is an exceptionally beautiful medieval town in the north of Lesbos. It was saved from the usual tourist developments by far-sighted conservationists in the nineteen sixties, who placed a preservation order on the town. A Byzantine fortress dominates the skyline, guarding the town with its narrow, winding, cobbled streets and lanes, and its well preserved buildings. The harbour has fishermen landing their daily catch, some of which will be served later in the day in the fish restaurants down by the quay. Low cost Molyvos holidays appeal to those seeking a relaxing break in a resort that oozes traditional charm, and where the sun is guaranteed to shine. There is a small sandy beach which becomes rather crowded in high season and also a pebbled beach. The clear waters are ideal for snorkelling and diving. You can take excursions by boat from the harbour and explore the island's wonderful coastline.
Molyvos is a traditional resort that offers a range of modern hotels and apartments that accommodate most budgets. Standards are high and service is very good. When choosing your board option, be sure to check the all inclusive holidays as, when discounts are applied, they may be much cheaper than you'd imagine. When travelling with families, bear in mind the cost of meals and constant requests for refreshments, which can be considerable. A range of bars and restaurants cater for all tastes and familiar British food is always easy to find. If you are new to the flavours of Greece, a good introduction is to order meze, the equivalent of Spanish tapas. You'll receive several small portions of traditional fare, ideal for experiencing new tastes. Wines are both pleasant and inexpensive. Nightlife is low key reflecting the resort's popularity with couples. The narrow streets of the old town provide more than adequately for all your holiday essentials, your gifts and souvenirs.
Molyvos holidays can be taken from early spring until late autumn. Temperatures rise from twenty to the low thirties, in the height of summer. You can check on the Cheekytrip website for the availabilty of holidays from your local airport to Lesbos. Transfers to the resort take between one and a half and two hours.
