The mountain village Lafionas is located in the North of the island of Lesvos, overlooking the bay of Petra. This traditional stone house has been lovingly and authentically renovated over recent years. On the ground level is an open plan kitchen with dining and living areas. There is also a small utility area with washing machine and the bathroom with shower on the ground floor.
There are two bedrooms on the upper level. The main bedroom has a double bed and a private roof terrace with fantastic views over Petra and further East to Molivos and Turkey. The other bedroom has two single beds.
In front of the house is a small garden/courtyard where you can always find a shady spot, perhaps relaxing in the hammock or under the cozy pergola.
In Lafionas you will find a few tavernas with a spectacular view to the sea plus some small shops/mini markets. It takes you 10min by car to get to the coastal village of Petra and its lovely beaches. “Am Alex” is a good location for active people, nature lovers and families. Some beautiful hikes start right behind the house. In order to best explore the region we recommend that you hire a rental car.

The mountain village of Lafionas is located on the slope of the mountain Roudi, about 4km away from the coastal village of Petra. Lafionas is surrounded by old olive groves and extended pine forests. In the very traditional village you will find a few kafeneions and little shops. In the morning fresh fish and vegetables are delivered by mobile traders. Mostly elderly Greek people sit at the plateia or on one of the terraces with a stunning view over the bay of Petra, enjoying a coffee or ouzo. Strangers are welcome, but the locals may look curiously at you. Sometimes this is the beginning of a friendly chat.
Lafionas is a good starting point for hikes in the area. The mountain Roudi can be climbed or you may take the lovely hike out of the village and visit the old charge of Saint Alexandros (with his sarcophagus in front of the charge door). In the neighbourhood you can find the ruins of the settlement of Klapados, the setting of one of the last victorious battles between the Greek forces and the Turkish army in December 1912. From here starts an ecological hike through the pine forest with stunning views to Anaxos, Petra, Molivos and Eftalou.
Petra is about 6.5 kilometres west of Molivos on the north coast of Lesvos, in a flat area between the fertile fields and olive groves and a wide bay with a fine sandy beach. The town's landmark is the striking church rock, which also gave the village its name (Greek petra = Stone). Climbing up the old steps to the church is highly recommended: not only the church itself and its surroundings are worth seeing, but you also have fantastic views over the village, the sea and the coastline.
In the narrow streets below the church, life vibrates in the summer season. The Plateia, which opens to the sea, invites visitors to enjoy the sunset, while drinking ouzo, wine or coffee or even slurping a sundowner. Three small offshore islands offer a perfect setting for your sunset photograph or just for your memories.
