How to relax and enjoy your holiday in Lesbos, Greece to the fullest
1 week on the island of Lesbos, Greece
You can easily get lost in time when your destination is Lesbos, a Greek island close to the Turkish border. A hot sun, dry air and surrounded by a warm sea, this is the perfect place to relax.
A good friend of mine asked me once:
“Why don’t you join me to the beautiful island of Lesbos in Greece?”
Of course, I couldn’t resist his request.
As a person I don’t know him that well, because I just spent one week at one of his studios and he wasn’t there all the time. In the morning he brought breakfast for the people who were present, so that he could meet us and have a little chat.
In case you prefer to go to the beach, the closest although a pebble beach is only a 3-minute walk down the road. Or if you like to take a refreshing dip in the nearby swimming pool then that is not even a 2-minute walk from the Sappho House to the Akti Hotel where you can enjoy a free swim.
Another recommendation is the hot springs of Eftalou. It’s not easy to find but once you’re there you will not regret it. See map below for the location.
As Lesbos is rather a hilly island it is best to rent a motorbike at Mithymna, the nearest city where all the restaurants and shops are. It is either 20 minutes by foot or 4 minutes by taxi. The taxi is 4 to 5 euros though.

Horses of Lesbos
As I like taking pictures of almost everything, I shot this beautiful horse as well.
Turkey is not far away
Fishing in Lesbos
Spectacular rock formations are common in Lesbos and it is well known that it has more rocky beaches than sand ones.
Fishing is very popular here because of the many restaurants that can be found near the harbour which serves great fish. Just so deliciously fresh and tasty.
Unfortunately psychotherapist Bob Vansant peacefully passed away on December 8, 2017.
He was the owner of the Sappho house at this beautiful island Lesbos in Greece.
Meanwhile its name changed to Mytilini Blue Sea Apartments since February 28, 2018.
