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.

  1. This is devastating indeed. I had just been writing a short piece about Ambeliko when I found out about this awful devastation. It is such a beautiful village, at the heart of the island. It does seem as though no-one was hurt but hearts will be as broken as the streets & houses. Nature can be cruel. My thoughts are with the people of Lesvos.

  2. I am so pleased to read on the Ambeliko village website that repair work is in progress, thanks in no small way to some generous donations from communities in Australia who have links with Ambeliko. It is heart-warming to know that the world cares for this tiny part of Greece. Perhaps there will be some local opportunity for visitors this year to make donations, however modest, to the continuing work to get life back to normality and repair the damages.
