About Robin

We started visiting Lesvos such a long time ago we can't remember when. We simply fell in love with the island in general and Molyvos in particular. In 2005 we bought some land and tried to manage the building of our house from the UK. Holidays became site visits and our house was [mostly] completed in 2007. In 2009 we sold up in the UK and moved to Molyvos. This is now our home and we count ourselves amongst the luckiest of the lucky. I am a member of the Molyvos Tourist Association, providing photographs for their brochures and general publicity. Most of my time is spent on activities to encourage tourism or taking photographs of one of the most beautiful places on earth. I also produce calendars and sell them on-line through  Lesvos Calendars Please visit and have a look. You can also see more of my photographs by visiting my website   Robin Sanders Photography

    • Hi Sylvia,

      The post is from 2012!

      It’s too early to know exactly when the festival will be held, as it rather depends on the chestnuts being ready.

      I will put up a post to let people know as soon as have a confirmed date.


    • Sorry Osman but I have heard no news yet. The exact date is set once the harvest can be better judged.

      Normally it is either the first or second weekend in November.

      I will post dates as soon as I have them.
