molyvos.eu was started to try and provide information about and pass on experiences of the beautiful island of Lesvos. The package holiday is changing, visitors want more than sunshine and a beach. Lesvos has the sunshine, it also has some very nice and quiet beaches. But Lesvos is so much more than that. It has a remarkable history. It is the home of Ouzo. Its olive oil is renowned. Its light is magical. It is the birthplace of Nobel winning poets. Aristotle developed the idea of biological classification still used today by studying the aquatic life in the Gulf of Kalloni (it is known as Aristotle’s Lagoon). Theophrastus was born in Eressos and is the father of botany. Lesvos was the birthplace and home of Sappho.
Clearly, Lesvos inspires greatness. Against this backdrop molyvos.eu is trying in its own small way to encourage others to visit this truly inspirational island and enjoy the history, the olive oil, the Ouzo and the culture that sets it apart as an unmissable destination.
