Autumn RainSummer is now almost over. When the very last charter flight takes summer visitors back home on October 29th, we will all feel that Autumn is truly here.

October has so far been warm and sunny but it looks like the rains will arrive on the 23rd. You can find out what the weather is doing in Molyvos by visiting the Molyvos Weather Station.

All of the tourist industry is now winding down (if not already closed) and Lesvos is preparing for winter. You might think that this will mean lots of relaxation and catching up on sleep. There is however just the small matter of picking the olives from more than 11 million olive trees that cover over a quarter of the island! It is very hard, back breaking work that results in world famous, award winning oliveOlive Oil fresh from Stypsi oil. Next time you visit Lesvos you must take time to visit the Museum of Industrial Olive-Oil Production in Agia Paraskevi.

So while the winter rains (and snows perhaps) are falling there is something you can do to keep just a little ‘summer’ alive. Read through some of our pages and start to plan where you will visit next year. Lesvos is blessed. There is so much to see, so much to do and so much to experience. Lesvos has already started preparing for your visit.

Make sure you are ready!

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 on my  Robin Sanders Photography website.
