Wonderful house, lot of spaces for everything and very quiet location. The village nearby is very small but has everything you can need.
The house was beautiful and the views gorgeous! We had everything we needed!
The pictures do not even do it justice. So tastefully done and the perfect combination of old world charm with all the updated amenities.
Thank you so much for your good review
Great guests as well!
Wish you can stay longer next time!
Wonderful place, very friendly village folk
George and his brother Yannis’ Villa Thermi is in a very small village about 30 - 45 min north of MJT airport. Yannis met our flight and we followed him to the Villa. He helped us unload, introduced us to the small market a hundred meters or so away and to the single main restaurant owner and showed us where to park sever hundred meters away.
Pros: situated in a very quiet village, great AC which was very quiet but effective, small but perfect temp pool with a single strong jet near ladder, beautiful view of Aegean in distance (several thousand meters), good charcoal bar b q & excellent fresh growing basil, rosemary and lavender in the small garden, which we used a lot. The local restaurant is limited, bur delish, particularly the baked eggplants garlic & tomatoes, and small fishes. Excellent AB supermarket and deli nearby. Can buy very fresh fish, octopus and lamb in markets in the old town. Veto Ouzo distillery is worth a trip.
Cons: Many steep steps, particularly for physically-challenged, kitchen dining area & living room all on upper level, 2 bedrooms and bathrooms on lower level only. Hot water only to one bathroom at a time; must switch breaker to change to other bathroom. Lowest level bed only foam, quite uncomfortable if you have bad back. Dishwasher needed repair.
George and Yannis are gracious hosts, checking in to see if we needed anything.
Except for steep steps and no bathroom on upper level, I enthusiastically recommend Villa Thermi!
Our best holidays since a long time
The listing description was accurate regarding everything that was described on the website : the house is wonderful ( very modern equipment in a traditional building), the garden lovely, the owners absolutely charming. The property was very clean and well-maintained. But you can hear everything that is said or done from one floor to the other, or from one room to the other; in fact, on the ground floor there are two bathrooms and two separate rooms, one absolutely independant, the other with two extra large beds only separated by a curtain. Nevertheless, our holidays were perfect, also because of the village, so lovely and quiet. You absolutely need a car or a scooter to reach the beaches and to discover the island, that is large and wild.We would of course recommend this property to anyone who likes quietness.
Perfect holiday villa!
We really loved this holiday villa. The description and pictures on this site are true, but the reality is even better! Beautiful, green, garden, big house, airconditioning, fresh fruit, chees and bread at our arrival, cleaning twice a week, very close to the beach, lovely, small and quiet town near the airport, perfect!

Villa Thermi-The sunrise of the Aegean In Lesvos
Description of property was quite accurate apart from "The site is 1 acre and sea 300 metres away". That is far from the truth. The house was lovely with lots of character with a private front garden. We loved the large fully equipped kitchen with the owner's personal taste in design. Very comfortable and clean living room on the first level. It really was home from home. We were met by the owners at the airport. They were a lovely couple and made us feel very welcome and providing us with fridge full of food and drink. Unfortunately we had booked this holiday too early for Lesvos season and had a job to find anything open in the evenings. We hired a car and drove round this beautiful island during the day and watched some good films on TV in the evenings. This part of the island is not commercialised. We don't think the locals had ever seen a tourist before !
We will have to point out the things that need attention within the property: The bedrooms were far too damp to sleep in ( they were on ground level) That might be because of time the year!! The shower did not have a curtain or a screen so the water was running into the hall. The upstairs balcony is not safe as it does not have railings to stop children( especially )falling down. I would recommend this property to friends for high season only.
