in the heart of the village of Molyvos (also known as
Mythimna) is Captain's View, a beautifully restored
stone house retaining Molyvos tradition and with an
eye for both Greek style and luxurious detail.
It is a couple
of minutes from the 'agora' (market), the bakery and
a well stocked grocery. Imagine newly baked bread, croissants
or baguettes, fresh fruit, yoghurt and local honey for
breakfast on the balcony. The views from the balcony,
sitting room and main bedroom make words like 'spectacular',
'awesome', 'magnificent' and 'magic' seem totally inadequate.
It's one's private access to a panorama of natural beauty,
a wide bay, the harbour with its yachts, small craft
and colourful fishing vessels, distant islands and mountains,
and just below, the tiles of the old village roofs.
Next door to the house is one of the most treasured
'Turkish' style houses in Molyvos.
is sheltered with cool corners and a private balcony
to work on that sun tan, or just watch the sun set.
There's full air conditioning, so if the weather gets
too hot you can escape to indoor comfort.
