Elegant column fans in all the bedrooms help to keep you cool on the hottest days; there is AC in the living area. NOTE: Wi-Fi access is available; however, despite subscribing to the best package available, the connection speed at the village is not great so streaming video etc. will not be as fast as you might expect. The nearby local café also offers free Wi-Fi all year round. ABOUT THE VILLAGE Skalohori is a traditional settlement of stone houses on a slope overlooking the sea. The nearest beach, Kalo Limani is only 5km away and there is a new road leading to the beach where you will find one of the best tavernas by the water's edge and a cafe. Skalohori is a charming village very close to the major tourist spots of Petra and Molyvos so you can easily spend your days exploring and come back for sunset drinks on the patio. A massive ancient plane tree shades the main village square where the locals gather day and night.There is a bakery and a few shops for your basic needs; you can also buy fresh, seasonal produce outside your door from the farmers going past in the morning. The village is also a 15-minute drive from Kalloni, a major regional centre with supermarkets, banks, internet cafes and all services. In order to enjoy your stay at the house and the island, it is highly recommended that you have a car, which can be rented from several rental car agencies in downtown Mytilini or the airport. THE LOCAL AREA Although it is a village built on a gently rolling mountain slope, Skalohori is situated within a 20-30 min drive of some of the most beautiful beaches on the north-western side of the island of Lesvos; its rural setting makes it perfect for nature walks and it is ideally located for excursions and day trips to the popular resort villages of Petra, Molyvos and Eressos. For bird-watching enthusiasts, the village is very conveniently situated within easy reach of the salt-pans and wetland areas of Kalloni and other popular bird-watching spots. A must-see for visitors to Lesvos is the Petrified Forest and the Museum of Natural History in Sigri. The geo-park there is approximately a 45 minute drive from the village through some of the most dramatic landscape of the island.Apart from the beaches, the fantastic local produce and its famous traditional cuisine, the tavernas by the sea, the evocative landscapes and historical sites, the island of Lesvos offers the visitor a variety of interesting activities and is truly a destination for all seasons; the village of Skalohori offers you the perfect base for exploring the island.
