Winter in the Aegean

A winter retreat for writers and others

xionia sta vouna 010 kategida 4 019 kolpos 9

The colors change dramatically. Bright blue gives place to steely grey and dry yellow to a deep green that caries in it the seeds of spring. If anything marks this quiet social season, that is nature in its dramatic shows of force. The Aegean sea, as rarely seen in tourist brochures, allies itself with gale force winds to produce powerful natural drama. Molyvos in the winter is hard but not inhospitable. Clear skies are aplenty and the temperature rarely falls below zero, even if snow is known to creep all the way to the bay of Molyvos. Moreover, winter caries with it all the promise of a most gorgeous spring awakening. Lesvos sees its first foreign visitors early in March and April as bird-watchers come to witness the island’s unique variety of migratory and local birds.

Families […]
