Located at the heart of medieval Molivos town in the northern part of Lesvos, Rena's Cottage is an old traditional house built onto the rock. The wisteria covered market with all its shops and restaurants is just down the steps and the beach is 5 minutes on foot. There is a private walled yard overlooking the market and an upper floor terrace with great views of the open sea and olive grove. A big pomegranate tree and a climbing vine provide shade (and seasonal fruit).
A red door with a lion knocker opens to the yard where there are plenty of cushions and seating and a table for having dinner. Yard is suitable for a small barbecue and charcoal is provided. There are two doors leading inside the house, one straight to the kitchen, the other to the lounge. Entering the lounge there is a cushioned area to the right, a wooden staircase in the center, a fireplace and kitchen to the left. Toilet and shower area are next to the kitchen.
The twisting wooden staircase leads to a small hall from where there is access to the bedrooms. There are two bedrooms one small with two single beds and one bigger with a double bed. The upper floor terrace is accessible through that room.
Ground floor is cooler and shady, upper floor has great views and is very bright.
Rena's cottage is ideal for those who like a central location but also enjoy a neighborhood feel. The medieval castle is a 5 minute walk through narrow cobbled streets and scenic openings. There are many cats around. As the sun sets cosmopolitanism kicks in. Dining and socializing at the cafes and bars is a matter of a few steps. The house is not accessible by car. There is only limited street parking in the market street otherwise the public parking above the beach will do.
Pebble beaches and the hot springs of Eftalou are 2 km away the beach towns of Petra and Anaxos just 4 km. There are many footpaths, trails and countryside locations nearby good for hiking or cycling.
Rena's Cottage can be booked for max 5 people (2 in double bed, 2 in single beds, 1 downstairs in the lounge). The price per day is from 69 €, depending on the time of the year. Final clean-up is 35 €. Minimum stay 3 nights.
