Pithari, a wonderful, traditional stone house built in 1946, is in the small picturesque village of Skalohori and nestled on a slope on the north-west side of Lesvos, within easy reach of some of the major tourist spots and best beaches of this beautiful island.

We have been one week in Pithari during August and we have had very nice times. The house ie very well equipped. The Skalochori village is situated in a good position to reach on one side Petra and Moliovs and on the other side Sigri and the beautiful beach of Eresos.

Once you get used to the narrow streets it is an unbelievable pleasure (but access with a small car of even easier - motorbike, if that is your thing!). You will be welcomed as never before and might even find a wonderful bread and some lovely home made cheese in the ample fridge. You will find the best-appointed house/apartment you...

The house is not baby proof and the interior stairwell would be a hazard for toddlers as it is open. Therefore, we do not recommend the house for very young kids.

About the neighbourhood
Skalohori is a traditional settlement of stone houses around 60 kms from the capital Mytilini. It is a charming village of a few hundred residents and, although very close to the major tourist spots of Petra and Molyvos, it only sees but the passing tourist. The houses are arranged amphitheatrically on a slope overlooking the sea 5 kilometres away. A massive ancient plane tree shades the main village square where the locals gather day and night.
There is a bakery and a few shops for your basic needs; you can also buy fresh, seasonal produce outside your door from the farmers going past in the morning. The village is also a 15-minute drive from Kalloni, a major regional centre with supermarkets, banks and all services.
In order to enjoy your stay at the house and the i...
