Beautiful Stone House in a Peaceful Village



Updated: 05-Oct-2016
Traditional Villa in Eresos, Lesvos, Greece - 3 Miles from Beach

Villa Notia was impeccably and lovingly restored to the highest standards in 2007 using natural materials of stone and wood, and with full attention to the architectural style of an old Greek residence. Although traditional in style, with handcrafted furniture and fittings designed by the owners, it conforms to the demands of a modern residence with all necessary conforts including central heating, and DSL fast internet connection. Villa Notia is situated in the middle of the preserved traditional area of Eresos close to the Byzantine church of the Virgin Mary (circa.1100AD).The ambience of the area is peaceful and tranquil, but is just a 5 minute walk from the central square with its market, tavernas and traditional cafe under the old plane trees. It is 3 miles from the beautiful beach and centre of Skala Eresou.

About the Owner

We first visited eressos as university students, in the beginning of the 80’s and since then “never” left it. Eressos has become for us a gate for a trip through time, senses and creativity.This full of history, love and passion place,stole our hearts for good ,it has always been an inspiration and though we were not born there ,eventually it became our home.

Our big love is to find old beautiful spaces that used to be alive, try to restore and give them life again. So 16 years ago we bought and restored our first house where our daughter ,17 years old now, walked her first steps and spoke.

We bought villa Notia 3 years ago and with a lot of work and love restored it to the highest standards, with respect for its fortress architectural style,creating an essentially relaxing place!

Eresos' most beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Villa Notia is a rare find in the village of Eresos. Although a beautiful village most houses are tiny and cramped. Villa Notia is unique. It is spacious, airy and light. The rooms are large and the bathrooms fantastic. It is unlikely you will find a better house in this region. Many of the renovated houses have lost their charm but this house keeps its Greek style. It is a perfect house for a family with kids, or a house to share with friends. IT has an outside courtyard for meals and kids can ride all over the village and down to the beach.
