Short walk to town center
Charming, detached, two storey cottage situated on the edge of Polichnitos town, at the top of a cul-de-sac , in a peaceful neighbourhood. Just 10 minutes walk to the shops, town and medical center.
The cottage is at the final stage of complete renovation. The main house dates back to the late nineteenth century and offers a main bedroom (3 x 4m), a guest bedroom (2.5 x 2.7m), newly installed kitchen and bathroom, plus a lounge/dining area. Furthermore, there is space on the upstairs landing to add a second washroom if desired.
Externally, the cottage presents itself with a wonderful stone built façade, with natural slate paving and a circular stairway that takes you up to a neat roof terrace. The entrance to the property is by a stone gateway, at the end of the cul-de-sac, where you can park securely.
The bathroom has been fully tiled with light blue ceramics and features a walled off shower area, that incorporates a honed marble base. Naturally, there is a wash basin and plumbing for washing machine, whilst the WC is set in a partially separate area. The bespoke kitchen design, incorporates light pinewood fronted cabinets topped with real, rosa-beta granite worktops with an under-mounted stainless steel sink.
Polichnitos is a traditional Lesvos town with cobbled streets and fascinating architecture mostly built with local quarried stone. It is set back a few kilometers from the Kalloni gulf and slightly further from the open Aegean, where Vatera boasts superbly refreshing swimming, off the longest and most loved beach on Lesvos. The resorts at Nyfida and Skala Polichnitou (both blue flag awarded) offer a different experience, with warmer waters of the Kalloni gulf and a wealth of locally caught seafood, which graces the local tavernas and shops.
Travelling time to Mytiline 45 minutes by road, Kalloni 35 minutes. Mount Olymbus, Agiasos and walking trails through forests 20-30 minutes.
