Generosity and kindness on the shores of the Aegean

Molyvos street

Molyvos street

Like you we have all been following with keen interest developments in the refugee crisis that has affected Lesvos and Molyvos. This past year has placed a tremendous challenge before the village and its people, whose amazing display of kindness in the face of adversity is the talk of the world’s media. We are naturally aware that like us you are concerned about our beautiful village and we want to tell you that since last year’s steep spike in arrivals a lot has been done to improve the situation by redirecting the flow of refugees away from Molyvos. The efforts undertaken will, we believe, allow Molyvos’ generous people to once again direct their kindness and hospitality to the guests that join them every year from all over the globe in this beautiful corner of the world.

When people think about small Greek ports, they will generally adopt a dreamy look and start to talk longingly about an idyllic small harbour with working fishing-boats, salty fsihermen mending nets with their fingers and toes, quirky tavernas with withering music, … Continue reading → The post Skala Polichnitou appear […]
