We stayed about 10 days in Sam’s villa. It was absolutely beautiful. The villa is spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. It is a short walk to the beach and the town. We were early in the season so the town was very quiet but everyone was so friendly and helpful. The larger village of Antissa is about a 10 minute drive up some really windy roads - the views and the square are worth the drive. It has more restaurants, a bakery, several small markets...there too, everyone was welcoming. Sam managed to be an outstanding host even though he wasn’t present in Greece. He provided assistance and introductions to multiple people in Lesvos who made our stay that much more enjoyable - Costas at the car rental made our airport transfers and car rental effortless, Costas (a different Costas) at the local restaurant made sure everything was ok at the house, gave us the keys and we had several meals from his restaurant (available to eat in or take home), Paul who owns the To Kati Allo restaurant in Antissa was also available to answer questions and made us several fantastic meals. In addition, Sam had a cousin drop in to check that all was well when we arrived, Sam arranged for another cousin to make us an amazing home cooked meal in our villa. This is an amazing home, in an incredible location with the spectacular resource of Sam!
It was lovely. We enjoyed walking to the town square to eat. Loved the food! Everyone was so nice in the town. Every day, we went to the beach. The afternoon/evening breezes were welcome as it was very hot. The outdoor patio was wonderful.
