Lesvos is blessed by its bright Sun, it’s beautiful beaches, and it’s pine tree forests. Unaffected by mass tourism it gives the visitor the opportunity to discover the real Greece. This is the reason why many poets, writers, and artists have written so many hymns about Lesvos being their favorite place.
During the era of the legends it was called LASSIA, which means “full of forests”. Beauty was born and still lives here within virgin nature. Great poets and painters, since Arion and Sapfo of the ancient times, until the self taught painter Theofilos and the modern Nobel price winner poet Elytis, were born and have lived their lives on these lands. You can meet them every day near the bright blue seashores and the evergreen mountains.
