When you start looking for information about Sappho it is easy to become very confused. Every writer has a different opinion about her. There are a few things that remain undisputed.

  • She was born in Eressos
  • She was born about 620 BCE
  • She wrote poetry

We hope to bring you a more up to date page soon.

In the meantime, you can read one view of Sappho Wikipedia.

There is also a new book:

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.
