The Venue 

We will be staying at The Sunrise Hotel which overlooks Eftalou and the Aegean Sea, and is located only 0.6 miles away from Lesvos well-known resort, Mithymna (Molyvos).

The Area 

Lesvos is a truly unspoilt magical island, where you can swim in the warm sea or dip into the nearby hot springs.

The advantages of staying at the Sunrise Hotel are that you are near the hot springs and beach.

The Molvos Castle

This castle has an amazing view of Molyvos and the sea. It is only open 10 am- 3 pm during the summer months and there are two restaurant/cafes at the top. At night the castle is beautifully lit up and sitting in the cafe listening to live music and looking out to the harbour is simply stunning!

Bring your walking shoes as there are many archaeological sites to see and the hills are covered with herbs and flowers. Beautiful coloured fish swim in the sea, near the hot pool. Bring snorkels.

Water Temperature of the Thermal Springs is 43.6°- 46.5° C (110.5° – 115.7° F)
